I am trying to set up a simple Lync 2013 deployment for a small company. I want to have a single standard front end server and a single edge server. I have a SonicWall fire wall that supports a DMZ. I am struggling to find a document on how to do this. I have tried the planning tool. I have read a book. They all want to reverse proxy, multiple pools, etc. I am looking for a good step by step guide for as simple a deployment as possible. I want persistent chat, video conferencing, Exchange integration, and external access. No enterprise voice. Can you point me to such a guide/white paper?
However, when you setup the pool, only add the single server to the pools. Edge pool one edge server. Front End pool, one server. Skiip the mediation server and you can also skip the directors as well. Just adapt the proces described in the document to what you need.
