  • Apple iOS

For configuration of the service have a machine called Hm01.home.intranet as a Domain Controller and Certificate, called a virtual machine that is Hm02.home.intranet the Front End, I have only one SIP domain home.com.br. All servers are running Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1

The connection structure of customers mobiles and the ports used for communication with the service is installed at the front end is as follows

Components of Mobility Services

  • Mobility Service: supports client connections, this service must be installed on all Front Ends. 
  • Autodiscover Service: Service that allows customers to identify the location and address Mobility service. This service supports connections using HTTP or HTTPS, this environment set up the connection using this HHTPS and Reverse Proxy in the certificate should be amended and new rules published in the firewall should be created. This service must be installed on all Front Ends and directors of the pool
  • Push Notification Service: this service is based on the cloud and uses the services of Office 365. When Lync Client Apple iOS or Windows Phone is dead they do not respond to new events and new IM or missed calls. In such cases a notification called Push Notification is sent to the customer by the service Lync Online.

Prerequisites

All Front End pool servers must be upgraded to the Cumulative Update November Lync Server.

In this article demostro steps to upgrade the server pool Pool Update Lync Server with Cumulative Update 4. There is no need to upgrade customers to activate this service but is recommended to keep the structure updated.

DNS

To support customers in Autodiscovery is necessary to create a record in DNS. The record can be of type Address (A) or Alias ​​(CNAME), and should be created for each SIP domain supported by both the pool and in the Internet DNS Internal DNS

For this article I will create the CNAME record in DNS in the inner and external DNS.

For the configuration of the internal DNS, I created a CNAME record LyncDiscoverInternal. <domain SIP> pointing to the internal FQDN of the Front End

  

Alias ​​Name:  LyncDiscoverInternal

The FQDN for Target Host:  Hm02.home.intranet

  

For the configuration of external DNS, I created a CNAME record LyncDiscover. <domain SIP> pointing to external URL configured in the Front End

Alias ​​Name: LyncDiscover

The FQDN for Target Host: LyncPortal.home.com.br

To check which URL set to External Site start the Topology Builder and access the properties of the Front End Pool , and check the configuration of External Web Service.

The Mobility Service requires the creation of two additional ports on the Front End Web Service For the configuration of the doors start Lync Server Management Shell.
