Topology Builder could not copy the topology from the Central Management store. Cannot read topology. Verify that the topology data is accessible.

Cannot download topology

Sometimes you will encounter this error upon installation of Lync Server 2013 Standard Edition and the Central Management Store (CMS) is hosted on other sites. And basically you used a different user to install the Standard Edition server which don’t have access or right into the XDS database.


  1. Open the xds database
    • XDS issue
  2. Add the user used to download the topology. Assign as db_owner.
    • db_owner
  3. Log off and login again from Lync SE and download of topology should be successful at this time.
