Wildcard certificates on the Edge Server RRS feed

All replies

  • Hi Luca,

    No you cant use a wildcard certificate on an edge Server and this is not supported it must be a SAN certificate.

    Wildcard certificates are only supported on Reverse Proxy Servers but i would recommend a SAN certificate as well if you purchasing one for the reverse proxy. If you have an existing wildcard it could be used on the reverse proxy if required.

    For the Edge Certificate you will need the following SANs. These can be populated from the Lync deployment on the Edge Server when requesting an oflfline request. 

    • (for each sip domain you have)
    • Access Edge FQDN
    • Web Conf FQDN

    The below link you help you find exactly what you need.

  • Certificate setup for the Skype for Business Edge server role is essentially the same as that of Lync Server 2013. To that end, you may wish to check out the details of wildcard certificate support at:
