To make this easy so I wont run into the snags I have instead just ask if anyone has, from scratch, the steps to add a reverse proxy server to my existing Lync setup. All I am finding is bits and pieces and going in circles. A step by step from server (installed) to possibly network settings, certificates and DNS (if needed) entries. Here is my setup:
DC = 2008 R2 Standard, Physical machine. domain
Lync Server = 2012 Standard R2, virtual machine, Lync 2013. domain
Edge Server = 2012 Standard R2, Physical machine, Lync 2013. not on domain
Rev Prox Server = 2012 Standard, physical machine, nothing configured except the 2 NIC cards. not on domain
Everything works at this moment. Inside the network all features work. Outside most features work with other domain users, does not see AD when searching users field. Lync meetings with outside users does not work.
My purpose of the Reverse Proxy using IIS is to gain more features outside of the building. Mobile Lync of course to work, outside users to Lync meetings, basically any features that can be added by adding a Rev Prox server
