  1. Duplicate entries are created in the sections after the <location path="Lync Server Internal Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"> and <location path="Lync Server External Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"> tags.

    After you uninstall this update package, the two sections resemble the following: <location path="Lync Server Internal Web Site" overrideMode="Allow">
    <system.webServer>
    <security>
    <authentication>
    <windowsAuthentication/>
    <windowsAuthentication/>
    </authentication>
    <authentication/>
    </security>
    <security/>
    </system.webServer>
    <system.webServer/>
    </location>
    <location path="Lync Server External Web Site" overrideMode="Allow">
    <system.webServer>
    <security>
    <authentication>
    <windowsAuthentication/>
    <windowsAuthentication/>
    </authentication>
    <authentication/>
    </security>
    <security/>
    </system.webServer>
    <system.webServer/>
    </location>
  2. The following two entries are created before the </configuration> tag at the end of the file:
    • <location path="Lync Server Internal Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"/>
    • <location path="Lync Server External Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"/>
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Remove the duplicate entries in the two sections after the <location path="Lync Server Internal Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"> and <location path="Lync Server External Web Site" overrideMode="Allow"> tags. After you do this, the two sections resemble the following: <location path="Lync Server Internal Web Site" overrideMode="Allow">
    <system.webServer>
    <security>
    <authentication>
    <windowsAuthentication/>
    </authentication>
    </security>
    </system.webServer>
    </location>
    <location path="Lync Server External Web Site" overrideMode="Allow">
    <system.webServer>
    <security>
    <authentication>
    <windowsAuthentication/>
    </authentication>
    </security>
    </system.webServer>
    </location>
  2. Delete the following two entries at the end of the ApplicationHost.config file:
