Consider the following scenario:

  • One or more Survivable Branch Appliances or Survivable Branch Servers (SBAs/SBSs) are deployed in a Microsoft Skype for Business 2015 or Lync Server 2013 environment.

  • The servers interact with a trusted application (typically UCMA-based) that queries the presence information for users who are homed on these SBAs/SBSs.

In this situation, when some users' presence information is queried, the Lync Server Front-End service (RtcSrv.exe) of the SBAs or SBSs starts but then crashes within about 20 seconds. Additionally, you receive an event that resembles the following:
