Request button greyed out on the Lync monitoring server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am testing out Lync in my test environment and I have the FE with the pool01.domain.local as the certificate name. The problem is when I go to assign a certificate on my monitoring server (separate server) the request button is greyed out. The monitoring server has a cert for the server itself. I have also assigned the monitoring server to the FE via topology builder.

    The strange thing is I am able to start the service on the monitoring server. Does the monitoring server need a cert for the pool?

    Thanks for your help.

  • The Monitoring server doesn't need a certificate at all. That is why it is greyed out.

     This is from the CHM file:

    If you are running Monitoring Server as a stand-alone server role on the computer, you can skip Step 3: Request, Install or Assign Certificates. There are no special certificate requirements for the deploying Monitoring Server.

     

    Deploy the monitoring server reports if desired and you should be good to go.

  • Hi,

    The monitoring server doesn't need a pool certificate but it needs a server certificate.

    one more question, is it the RC or RTM version of lync that you are using ?
