  • If everything is installed correctly, there is no step by step, it should just work.  The hangups that get most are that the mobile app needs to trust the offered certificates.  If lyncdiscoverinternal points directly at the front end, which uses an internal certificate authority, this could potentially pose a problem.  Internally, your external web services FQDN should be published properly by a reverse proxy, that means that requests received on port 443 redirect to port 4443 on your front end, it can not simply be an A record that points to your front end.

  • Hi Mani L,

     

    Agree with Anthony.

    Moreover, do not forget to patch your Lync Servers, it’s recommended that you install the latest CU for your Lync Servers. (For Lync 2013 mobility, At least CU1 is required, the Lync 2013 Mobile applies on Unified Communication Web API (UCWA) that comes with February 2013 Cumulative Update for Lync Server 2013 or later.)

     

     

    Best regards,

    Eric
