Lync Standard Server 2010 - Edge server

Hi all!

I have some problems setting up the edge server, especially with the certificates, it does not include the edge server name. If somebody could provide a detailed "guide" on how to setup this I would appreciate.

Thank you!

The OCSGuy's Blog is a pretty good resource for this.  Here's the link to his "Deploying an Edge Server in Lync 2010" post.

I had a pretty good fight with this myself.  If you can be more specific about the errors you are encountering, I should be able to help you out.

This depends on which certificate you are requesting for the Edge server.  The external certificate will NOT contain the Edge Server's FQDN, that is only used on the internal certificate.  IF you use the wizard it will automatically add the required FQDNs to the proper certificate, assuming that you have correctly configured your Lync topology.

What wizard Jeff?

The certificate wizard is in the deployment application when you install Lync.  It'll automatically add the proper names to the certificate request.
