Scenario is 2 sites with SE and Edge each, the first site I setup a few months back and was expanding with the new site. For the sake of explanation I will call the existing site #1 and the new site #2.
All servers were replicating except for the #2 Edge Server.
I ran through the obvious checklist as follows:-
- Edge Server has a valid Certificate
- Edge Server can reach internal CA
- Edge Server is able to resolve Lync FE
- Can Telnet from FE to Edge on port 4443
So where are the other 2 trace components?
It was at this point that the lights went on...the Lync Server I was tracing on (#2) was not holding the CMS! Embarrassing. So I launched the logging tool on FE #1 and what do you know:-
My suspicions were confirmed, a quick chat with the networking boys and voila.
