Hello,

I have lync front end server setup on my network. I want to implement an Edge server so external clients/mobile devices can communicate with our lync front end. I need an edge server to do so. Can this server be a virtual machine with 2 NIC cards? Also, I will have to edit the host record an add two entries in for each IP and DNS name for the NIC card correct?

All roles in Lync Server are supported virtualized, so this is fine.

You don't need to edit the HOSTS file at all, that is not part of the documented Edge deployment steps (unless you are using NAT for the AV role and are pointing the Edge Server to an internal DNS server that you cannot modify records for).
