Setting up Lync 2013 CA Issue

Heyas,

I am trying to setup Microsoft Lync 2013 on Windows Server 2012 and am using the following document to guide my setup of this http://windowspbx.blogspot.no/2012/07/step-by-step-installing-lync-server.html.

I have verified I have internet connectivity and disabled IE Enhanced Security in Windows Server 2012 but when I get to the Choose a 'Certificate Authority (CA): Select a CA from the list' nothing appears in the list.

Any assistance will be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Have you deployed a Windows Enterprise CA in your environment?  It's not in Windows server by default, it's a role you need to install on a separate windows server (cannot be on the Lync Server).

Hi Jeff,

Where do I check this? And if not there where do I install it?

Thank you.

You can follow these directions to deploy a Windows CA in your environment:

If this is a lab environment then I would just install the CA roles on an existing domain controller, but if this is a production environment then it would be best practice to install the Root CA on a separate Windows server.  Make sure you install an Enterprise CA so that the certificates are included in your domain so that all domain-joined servers and workstations will trust that CA be default.
