When installing Lync server 2013, I receive a typical error: Automatic collection of configuration data failed
This error occur when you did not complete the Topology Builder or got a blank topology as below.
Execute these steps to resolve this issue:
- If you already had topology builder file, Open Topology with “Topology Builder” and publish Topology. If you didn’t have and that first time that you install Lync, Create a new topology with the “Topology Builder” and publish the Topology.
- Once the notifications have been acknowledged your topology should successfully publish.
- You should now be able to successfully Install the Local Configuration Store as show below
