  • The above posters are correct, wildcards won't work.  Here's the US-English version of Mohammed's article as well: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh202161.aspx

  • Hi Bruno,

    Lync Edge server does not support wildcard certificate, but you can use wildcard certificate on reverse proxy server for mobile users.

  • Hi,

    Wildcard entries are supported for the Simple URLs (meet, dialin, etc) but you cannot use them for anything else including the external web services FQDNs. So the wildcard certificate can reduce the cost of certificates placed on reverse proxy servers to publish the various external Simple URLs, but still you need a SAN certificate to publish other SANs such as external web services FQDN.

    More details:
