Using Public Certificates with an AudioCodes Gateway

Recently, I was working on a deployment for a customer who did not have PKI deployed internally.  As you are probably aware, certificates are a crucial component of a Lync deployment.  Due to time constraints, we decided to go ahead and use public certs for all of the servers, including the Front Ends (with collocated A/V and Mediation roles).  I thought the process of getting a public cert onto the gateway would be pretty straight forward.  Man, was I wrong.

Welcome to my UC Blog!

As someone who has worked in the IT field for over 10 years, I have leveraged various blogs to resolve issues and/or clear other stumbling blocks I've encountered along the way.  At this point in my career, I feel like I am at a point to where I can return the favor and impart some of my knowledge to others out there.  In case you haven't already deduced from the title, my plan is to focus this blog on the Microsoft UC platform(s), particularly OCS 2007/R2, Lync Server 2010, and Exchange.  However, you may find other topics covered if I find them worth sharing.  As with anything else technology related, this is a work in progress, so please feel free to give me feedback or suggestions.  

Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to hearing from you!
