  1. Hi Mino

    Under Enterprise Edition consolidated configuration you have listed CWA as a possible candidate for collocation. This is not true. Microsoft had wrong information on the Technet page and changed it now. Here is the new information:

    Communicator Web Access Support ->
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd425169(office.13).aspx
    Supported Server Role Collocation ->
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd425201(office.13).aspx

    Cheers
    Werner
