While installing Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP1, the setup might fail with the following error
Setup previously failed while performing the action "Uninstall". You can't resume setup by performing the action "BuildToBuildUpgrade".
The error will look like the below depending if you are using the GUI or CLI
To solve this problem you will need to edit the registry using regedit tool

The Lync Server product team has completed testing of Lync Server 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2. The product now fully supports SQL Server 2008 R2 on all Lync Server monitoring, archiving, and front-end server databases. At this time, SQL Server 2008 R2 is not supported for group chat databases.
Lync Web Scheduler is a resource kit tool for Microsoft® Lync Server 2010. It provides a Web-based alternative to the add-in for the Microsoft Office Outlook® messaging and collaboration client for the purpose of scheduling a meeting using Lync Server 2010. It also provides a browser-based conference management experience that includes operations such as the following:
· Scheduling a new online Lync meeting.
· Listing all existing Lync Server 2010 meetings that the user has organized.
· Viewing and modifying details of an existing meeting.
· Deleting an existing meeting.
· Sending an email invitation to meeting participants by using a configured SMTP mail server.
· Joining an existing conference.
Compared to the Conferencing Add-In for Microsoft Outlook, Lync Web Scheduler has the following limitations:
· Lync Web Scheduler does not support scheduling recurring meetings.
· Lync Web Scheduler lists only meetings that were organized by the user
. It does not list all meetings that the user is invited to. Further, meetings created using some other tool will not be editable using Lync Web Scheduler.
· Lync Web Scheduler is available only in English.
· Meeting invitations that are generated by Lync Web Scheduler do not look exactly the same as those that are generated by the Conferencing Add-In for Outlook.
Lync Web Scheduler doesn’t interact with the calendaring server. Calendar updates happen only via email invitations download it with the read me file here
