I recently downloaded the Lync 2010 trial VMs from here:
After I brought up the VMs none of the clients in the VMs were connecting. I found in the LYNC-SE VM that the "Lync Server Front-End" service and several others weren't started. When I try to manually start the service it fails and I see the following in Event Viewer:
"Unable to use the default outgoing certificate"
"Error 0x800B0101 (A required certificate is not within its validity period when verifying against the current system clock or the timestamp in the signed file.).
Cause: The certificate may have been deleted or may be invalid, or permissions are not set correctly."
I looked up the certificate issued by FabrikamCA and it looks like it expired on 12/27/2012. Does anyone know how to extend this? Or does Microsoft need to provide a new certificate?
