Lync Server 2010 Publishing Topology Error
Came across this one today, when publishing your selected topology from the Lync Server Topology Builder, the publishing wizard fails at the first step of "Creating Central Management Store". The following will also be logged in the deployment log.
Error: An error occurred: "Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Deployment.DeploymentException" "Cannot determine where to install database files because Windows Management Instrumentation on the database server is unavailable from your computer or user account. To continue, you can resolve this issue, or you can specify where you want to install the files."
