Error: Cannot open Service Control Manager on computer “pool.shareitskills.local”.  This operation might require other privileges.


Check and make sure that the pool name matches the Active Directory FQDN of the Lync server. On Lync Standard Edition installation, you won’t be able to publish the topology if the name doesn’t match the server name. This is a Lync Standard Edition server installation requirement, and only with Enterprise Edition can you create a separate pool name.
