Assume that you install the FTP role service on a computer and create a FTP site. You try to deploy Microsoft Lync Server 2010 on the computer. In this situation, the setup process fails. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException was unhandled
  Message="The object identifier does not represent a valid object. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800710D8)"


 This issue occurs because the Lync Server 2010 setup process does not expect FTP site in the Internet Information Services (IIS).


To resolve this issue, install the following cumulative update:
