Lync Edge Server Deployment... domain join?

    Question

  • Please bare with me: I'm new to the IT world...

    In every blogs / guides that I've gone through, FQDN of edge servers is lyncedge.domain.com... Edge servers seem to be joined to the domain... I thought Edge isn't supposed to be joined to the domain... Could anyone explain?

    How can the Edge server not be joined to the domain but still have an FQDN of edge.<ad-domain>??

  • By default the computer name of an Edge Server that is not joined to a domain is a short name, not a fully qualified domain name (FQDN). However, Topology Builder uses FQDNs, not short names, and the internal name on the Edge Server must match the FQDN used by Topology Builder, so you must change the short name to an FQDN by adding a Domain Name System (DNS) suffix to the name of each Edge Server that is not joined to a domain.

  • Hi. You should enter A-record into ur DNS. E.g. "lyncedge.domain.com" equals "192.168.55.55"

  • Hi,

    usually how it's done is configure a suffix to the host namae like @domain.com. below is an example.

    Host Name: Edge

    Suffix: @domain.com

    FQDN: edge@domain.com

    you simply can do this by using the "More" tab in where you configure the host name fro the server.
