Creating DNS Records for the Autodiscover Service

Modify certificates

Add subject alternative name entries to the following certificates to support secure connections for mobile users:

  • Director certificate
  • Front End pool certificate
  • Reverse proxy certificate

Local administrator

Modifying Certificates for Mobility

Configure the reverse proxy

  • Assign certificates updated with subject alternative names to the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Listener.
  • Reconfigure the web publishing rule for the external Autodiscover Service URL.
  • Be sure that a web publishing rule exists for the external Lync Server 2013 Web Services URL on your Front End pool.

Or

  • If you choose to use HTTP for the initial Autodiscover request and do not update subject alternative name lists on the certificates, configure a new web publishing rule or reconfigure an existing publishing rule for port 80 HTTP.
