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

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.
The below article explains how to generate Certificate request on Edge Server

OK Got it.

Request a new certificate on Edge Server and add the required domain names. Export it to Lync Frond End Server.

I would highly appreciate if you can provide me steps to export add exported the certificate on Lync Front End.

You have asked question about edge server in original question
For front end server certificate requirements, please check below MS article
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg398094.aspx
I suggest you to collect all required URLs first for Edge Server and fornt end server
U can have public certificates with SAN for all servers

Please review certificate requirements for Lync 2013 entirely before proceeding.
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg398066.aspx
In above URL, you will find cert requirements for Edge external interface, Edge internal interface, front end servers and so on.

You can export certificate from certificate personnel store through MMC with private Key from windows server.Check below articles
