Skype For Business IM Integration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Exchange & Skype For Business integrated for Unified Exchange configured working fine. We are trying to configure messaging service. We have Goddady certificate which we are using for our exchange server so my question is can I use the name which is mail.abc.com for IM messaging? because that name we are using for OWA.

  • Hi Farhan Khan Mughal,

    In my understanding, when do OWA IM Integration between Exchange and Skype for Business server, it would use the Exchange certificate Thumbprint which is enabled for IIS service.

    Then on the Skype for Business server side, you need to create a Trusted Application Pool for OWA:

    New-CsTrustedApplicationPool -Identity <FQDN of new pool > -Registrar <FQDN of Lync server Pool> -Site <SiteID> -RequiresReplication $False

    And create Trusted Application for OWA:

    New-CsTrustedApplication -ApplicationId <Id> -TrustedApplicationPoolFqdn <FQDN of Trusted pool> -Port <available TCP port number>

    For example, if you use “mail.abc.com” as your OWA FQDN, you could use the following commands to create trusted pool and application:

    New-CsTrustedApplicationPool -Identity mail.abc.com -Registrar fepool.domain.com -Site 1 -RequiresReplication $false
    
    New-CsTrustedApplication -ApplicationId OWA -TrustedApplicationPoolFqdn mail.abc.com -Port 5199

  • Thank you for the replied. I've configured as you mentioned for now I am getting this error.

    The certificate specified by the InstantMessagingCertificateThumbprint parameter of the Outlook Web App virtual directory wasn't found in the local certificate store.
    Certificate thumbprint: [E09E32855E920D9D71769F7B2CE7D2071E1F81910]

    I already paste this tumbprint on owa webconfig in exchange server.

  • Hi Farhan Khan Mughal,

    Please run “Get-ExchangeCertificate” on the Exchange server management shell to check the certificate thumbprint.

    Then run the command to update the OWA virtual directory with the new thumbprint:

    get-owavirtualdirectory | Set-OwaVirtualDirectory -InstantMessagingCertificateThumbprint "<new cert thumbprint>"

    Please refer to this related blog:
