the fqdn should point to the pool or the FE server internally, the pool FQDN will point to the FE IP in single ENT server or the VIP with multiple FE servers.
from what I can see it is correct.

Hi Busbar:

The reason why I want to change is because of our setup and our internal domain name. Back in the days when it was made, my predecessors made a huge mistake in making an internal domain name that already exist as a global domain name, which I suffer under right now.

We have a FE and a Edge server, no reverse proxy. I want people from outside our domain to be able to join meetings in Live Meeting and be able to see whiteboard and shared powerpoint presentations. But right now, they cant because of a certificate issue. We cant get a SAN certificate that contains both the internal URL and the External URL, because our internal domain name is owned by another unknown company.

So right now, my thought was to change the our internal domain to our external domain name on the OCS server and then change my dns records and solve it by doing that. We solved our Exchange 2010 certificate problem by doing something simular to this. Is it possible or is there another way to solve this mess?

is the internal domain is .com domain, if yes then you are in trouble.
anyhow you can use the external name as the internal one, and create a DNS zone in the internal DNS servers that points to the internal IP.

get rid of the OCS thinking, at the end it is HTTP and DNS :)

No its a .net domain, but its the same :(.

I already have another DNS zone for out external domain name on our internal DNS server. But before I can assign our certificate for our external domain name, I need to change the FQDN in OCS, or am I wrong?

Hi again.

What a great guide you've made there! :). Thanks!!!!

But there is a mismatch between the FE name and out certificate. Out FE name is still ocpool.internaldomainname.net and our certificate is *.externaldomainname.com. Is it possible to change?
