Format: Paperback
The resource kit for R2 is very similar to the R1 version - it is a very technical reference on the servers, roles, services, ports and communications mechanisms to the latest version of OCS. In that, it is written for those with on-hand experience with Microsoft server OS deployments such as Server 2003 and Server 2008. This book is not a book for beginners on OCS. In my opionion, there isn't a good written published reference for beginners - stick with the Microsoft white papers and TechNet articles. If your job is to design, architect OCS R2, this book is very valuable and will provide the process and procedures for completing your design. Deployment tasks are treated a little more lightly; while they are covered, the specific task-by-task details are not provided. That, again, is left to the white papers Microsoft has written well on the subject. As far as migration from OCS R1 to R2, the pages covered are from 659 to 662. Only a few pages - but the process to migrate is depicted in the pages. Migration from LCS or OCS R1 is a coexistence process as you will likely deploy OCS R2 on net-new hardware along side the existing legacy product. This allows easy migration by simply associating the legacy SIP-enabled users to the new system.

This reference is well worth the purchase price. This, along with the Microsoft-provided technical references will steer you in the right direction for OCS R2.

First, I want to congratulate and say "Bravo" to the team of writers lead by Rui Maximo. As a trainer/writer/author and consultant on the subject of "Microsoft Unified Communications" I cannot leave without this book on my desk and others on similar subject like Exchange 2010. As an author, I can imagine the arduous process that the team went through to collect all the technical reference information and the nuggets of wisdom by actual implementers of this technology.

This book is a resource kit -a very technical reference book on the planning, architecture, deployment, monitoring, managing and trouble-shooting your OCS R2 environment. OCS R2 architecture is similar to Exchange Server 2007/2010 architecture -each server role is a component that fits with other server roles to deliver a complete UC solution. But the great part about this architecture is that you don't have to deploy every server role -for example -archiving server or monitoring server role only needs to be deployed if you need that functionality. This book goes very deep -I would say 300-400 technical level in explaining the function of each server role and how it fits into the architecture and what phase you should deploy it in and how. Very thourough in each aspect and then once deployed, how to manage and monitor its performance and trouble-shoot etc.

Any architect/designers/implementers of UC platform -including those that want to integrate with various PBXs and non-microsoft technologies- would find this an extremely valuable resource.

I would highly recommend this book for those types of people mentioned above -technical people to use as a reference -once you get the gist of the architecture that you should build, it will help you plan for it and then phase by phase build it.

Whether you're planning, deploying, or adminstering OCS, this book will provide you with coverage on what you need to know and understand when installing and maintaining and OCS environment. It not only provides the what, but the how. I would highly recommend picking up a copy of this book if you really want to understand how OCS works.

This book is a great resource if you want to know the inner details of OCS.
The authors did a great job, it is pretty hard to explain complex content in the clear way they did.
If you are looking for an excellent reference guide for OCS, this is it.
As a bonus, on the cd you will find a nice set of powershell scripts.

When I first picked up the book, I thought I knew OCS. Then I read it. It covers everything from client functionality, to expected SIP conversation behavior, to WMI and AD attribute details. I continue to use it as a reference for projects and troubleshooting. It has been and will continue to be a very useful tool.

Of several other learning and informational references for OCS,this had to be the easiest read, best for recall and retaining information. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to find an all-in-one reference that spells it out.
