Best practive for 2nd Lync 2013 FE server added to domain
Posted on 2014-11-18
I'm attempting to add a second FE server to my domain that I would like to be independent from that already in place FE1. FE1 shares the same domain, DNS, AD, but uses a different exchange server. Using the topology builder, I created another site to host FE2. I'm running into issues setting up SRV records because they already exist for FE1 - _sipinternaltls, dial, meet, and admin records.
When viewing the topology builder, the Lync CMS is using FE1. I'm running in circles trying to make FE2 work properly, whether its certificates (the only way I can connect on my Macs is to use FE1 certs), blank EWS internal and external URLS in configuration information, and address book sync issues. What am I missing here?
