Heyas,

I have been tasked with setting up Lync Server on VM and I know nothing about Microsoft Lync. Could someone give a few links on how to setup a lync server the more screenshots the better.

Any input would be welcome.

Thank you.

Whooo..... I think you're asking for tons and tons of information here :-) you, books are written on the subject.

First of all, you'd better think through the following:
- Do you want to allow remote access and federation? that is logging in from the internet, and be able to IM and call users outside of the organization
- do you want telephony?

A basic Lync setup with IM, video and voice calls (not to PSTN), webmeeting and Lync Mobile all with remote access, would need the following server:
1 x Lync Front end. Internal Certs and 1 internal NIC
1 x Lync Edge, Internal Cert and 1 external Cert with 2 SANS, 1 external NIC with 3 (preferred, 1 can be used with tweaking of ports) Public Addresses
1 x reverse proxy - 1 Public IP and 1 public Cert

here's some step by steps:

But maybe a Office365 solution would be more suitable for you?
