Ran into an interesting problem a few months ago when deploying a new Lync Server 2010 standard pool for a power plant. The administrator I was working with gave me a Windows 2000 Server to use for the Lync File Store. I went ahead and created the file share, configured the UNC in the Lync Topology and went ahead to publish it only to receive the following error:
Error accessing share \\yourLyncFileServerName.domain.com\LyncShare - The object does not contain a security descriptor..
What’s interesting is that the subfolders in the share does get created but since this pool will eventually become production and will serve over 400 users, I didn’t want to take the risk so while I can’t conclusively say that this error is caused by the version of the Windows Server, I proceeded to ask for a Windows Server 2003 or newer server to store the Lync file store and then used the following TechNet article to move the location:
Move Lync File Store Data to New File Store
Once I moved the Lync File Store location to a Windows Server 2003 server, the error went away.
