  • So your DC, Lync Server, and Windows 7 client are all virtual machines on a Windows 7 physical host?

    Forgetting Lync, can you successfully ping from your virutal Windows 7 machine to the DC and Lync server?

    Kind regards
    Ben

  • First, check you can ping DC and Lync Server as Bend-y suggested.

    Make it easy, you can join the Windows 7 system to the domain.

    Check you have created the SRV record for Lync auto discovery service.

    If you don’t use Automatic configuration, you need to input the Lync Front End Pool FQDN in Manual Configuration. In DNS server, you need to create DNS A records pointing to each IP address of Front End Server.

    You also need to check that the Front End Service is started on Lync Front End Server.
