Lync 2013 Certificate Requirement

Hello Experts,

I have deployed Lync 2013 Standard Edition. I have only 2 public IP's. I am using for Web external service and edge server.

I need to purchase and request a single certificate that I can use on Lync and Lync Edge service for external access. Is that possible.

I don't want to purchase Wildcard Certificate.
I would highly appreciate any help.

Thanks

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

You can logon to edge server and run Lync "Request, install or assign" setup wizard and select Edge External and follow the on scrren steps
Normally setup will generate required Subject alternative names (SAN) automatically.
you may specify and additional SAN names if required.
