  • Hi, John,

       Microsoft Lync Server 2010, Group Chat must be installed on a computer where Internet Information Services (IIS) is configured to support anonymous access to the website and uses an account that has administrator rights and permissions on the file repository folder specified during installation. Please refer to Configuring Web Service Settings in IIS for Group Chat Server.

       You can use the procedures in Obtaining Certificates for Group Chat Server to obtain a certificate by using an internal enterprise CA and Windows Certificate Services.

       You must use Internet Information Services (IIS) to configure the certificate for the server hosting the Web service. More info, please refer to Configuring the Web Service IIS Certificate for Group Chat Server.

       Above all, hope helpful.

  • Hi! I am having a similar issue that is NOT being able to login to Lync Group Chat Admin Tool, I added the Web Certificate Template in my CA and enabled Domain Admins to Enroll the Certificate.

    Then I duplicated that Web Server Template to Enterprise Server 2003 level and added Client and Server Authentication, and named it Lync Server.

    Finally using the CA website I requested a new certificate for Group Chat Server using this new Lync Server template. The generated certificate had Client and Server authentication as well as the corresponding private key.

    Alas the Admin Tool refuses to sign in :-(
