I have an enterprise pool deployment of Lync 2010. Can I install the group chat server components on the servers that make up my front end servers as well?

According to technet, you should never collocate the Group Chat service. See link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd425201(office.13).aspx

I notice this link is actually for OCS 2007 R2 -- I cannot find the relevant documentation for Lync that would confirm this, but I would strongly believe that requirement has not changed from 2007R2. –  Peter Grace May 6 '11 at 16:01
