8. Select the option to send the request immediately to the online CA (you can also prepare the request but to send it later if you don’t have an online CA however you will need to do extra few steps to assign the certificate to the Lync pool). In my case I configured my CA to auto issue certificates so I’ll go for the online option.

  • This is great info, thanks for being the guinea pig. Can you tell me the database names that it creates? Just trying to do some planning of my own

  • You left out the 50,000 error messages and bugs that stretches a Lync installation into several weeks.

  • Sorry Greg, i was almost 100% busy during the last period... Do you still need the DB names or you managed to get them:)?

  • Thanks you very much for differents articles about Lync 2010
