how to Deploy Lync Standard Edition (part 1)

In this post, I’ll demonstrate how to deploy lync server, as I sad in my first post lync standard edition is useful for lab deployment and I’ll demonstrate how to deploy lync standard edition server.
There are some questions that I heard: what servers are necessary in infrastructure before install lync server? Is Exchange necessary before lync?
First of all lets answer to this questions, without exchange you can have lync infrastructure, but there are features which need exchange, for example your history tab will not work, also wil not work features that need ews (ews is used for history tab), voice mails and etc. so you can have lync without exchange, but I think that every normal organization must have exchange, it’s the best mail server in the world.
For lync infrastructure you need active directory, and internal ca (or you can buy certificate).
In My lab We have installed
domain: llab.corp
domain controller: llab-dcr01.llab.corp 192.168.34.50
domain controller: llab-dcr02.llab.corp 192.168.34.51
CA: llab-ca 192.168.34.55
Lync Server: llab-lync.llab.corp 192.168.34.56
for Lync deployment we’ll use Lyncinstall@llab.corp user for installation, user must be a member of domain admins, Enterprise Admins and schema admins groups
