I received a call the other day from an ex-colleague who had some issues with publishing a new Lync Server 2010 Standard Edition Server topology. The first screen I saw as soon as I got desktop sharing up with him was the following:
The information provided in the window above wasn’t too helpful so I got him to click on the View Logs button to bring up the detailed logs for the topology publisher. As I scrolled through the logs, I immediately saw the following errors:
Error: Error accessing share \\lyncstd.someDomain.com\LyncShare - Method failed with unexpected error code 2310..
Error: Cannot create directory. The path is read only: \\lyncstd.someDomain.com\LyncShare\1-ApplicationServer-1\AppServerFiles
Error: Cannot create directory. The path is read only: \\lyncstd.someDomain.com\LyncShare\1-ApplicationServer-1\AppServerFiles\CPS
Error: Cannot create directory. The path is read only: \\lyncstd.someDomain.com\LyncShare\1-ApplicationServer-1\AppServerFiles\Rgs
As some of you may probably have guessed, the first question I asked after seeing these errors was whether he had created the LyncShare folder on the server and not surprisingly, he didn’t. What I ended up doing as I had control of the desktop was create the share on the server and republish the topology so that the sub folders such as 1-Application-1 would automatically created.
