Ensure that the Lync Server is up and running by checking the Lync services are being up. Also check the Front End service being started - see this:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2795828

Moreover, is the server listening correctly to TCP port 5060. Verify if the firewall is enabled that TCP port 5060 is allowed. You can also check this thread:

I would recommend uninstalling or disabling any web filtering or web protection (pop up blocker, internet security software's \ programs and then try logging in.

Heyas,

An interesting thing I have found when a perform a NSLookup on the SIP domain the result I get is failure of the lookup.  See attached screenshot.

Can you provide clarification?

Thank you

Finally worked it out. The reason why I couldn't sign was the SIP address was pointing to domain lab.local when it should have been labs.local look at original screenshot closely. When I re-published the topology and assigned the necessary CA's to it the Lync client worked perfectly.

My final query is that there anyway I have identified this quickly using the Lync logs or some sort of troubleshooter.

Thank you.

uuuhm .... sorry - but is your last post a question?
the NSLOOKUP you try is wrong
should be _sipinternaltls._tcp.domain.com not _sipinternaltls.tcp.domain.com

btw: make sure lyncdiscoverinternal.domain.com points to FE-server
