This week, what we going to deploy is Lync Edge.
This walkthrough we will define a new Edge server topology to allow remote access for users and federated partners for conferencing, A/V, and SIP, as well as provide public IM connectivity.
We will be using Topology Builder to download the current Lync Server deployment, add the Edge server, and define the services. Then publish the new topology into the central management store. Export the new topology, so that it can be used to configure and install the Edge server.
let’s get started!
On Front End Server, click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Lync Server Topology Builder.
On the Welcome to Topology Builder page, select Download Topology from existing deployment and then click OK.
On the Save Topology As window, navigate to the desktop and save the topology as External Edge.tbxml.
In the Topology Builder, expand Lync Server 2010, expand the Central Site, for my case is “Singapore” and then click Edge Pools. And Right-click Edge Pools, and then click New Edge Pool.
On the Define the New Edge Pool page, click Next.
On the Define the Edge pool FQDN page, in the Pool FQDN box, type in the FQDN of the Edge Server. Click Single computer pool, and then click Next.
On the Select features page, read the list of features, select the features that you want, and then click Next.
On the External FQDNs page, in the SIP Access box, type in your sip domain and leave the port. If you do not select the “Use a Single FQDN & IP Address.” In the Web Conferencing box, type the conferencing address leave the port as it is. In the Audio/Video box, type the Audio/Video conferencing address, leave the port as it is, and then click Next.
On the Define the internal IP address page, in the Internal IP address box, enter your internal edge IP, and then click Next.
On the Define the external IP address page, in the SIP Access box, Web Conferencing box & A/V Conferencing box, enter the external Edge IP address, and then click Next.
because I want to NAT my AV conferencing. so I need to define my IP here.
On the Define the next hop page, in the Next hop pool drop-down list, select your next hop server, and then click Next.
On the Associate Front End pools page, select the Front End Server or Pools. If you have other Pools or Front End or Branch, and want to use this single Edge for all. You may select all pools, and then click Finish.
In the Topology Builder, right-click the Central Site, and then click Edit Properties.

On the Publishing wizard complete page, verify that all steps show as Success, and then click Finish.
On the Front End Server, click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Lync Server Management Shell. In the Lync Server Management Shell, type the following command, and then press Enter.
Export-CsConfiguration –FileName C:\Config.zip
On the Lync Edge Server, open Windows Explorer and navigate to \\Lync Front End Server FQDN\c$ and copy the config.zip to the edge server.
