HI, I'm setting up Lync 2010 LB on an LTM/GTM and had a couple of questions when I use the iAPP LYNC2010:
BTW, I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR ASSISTANCE WITH THIS
1- Are you deploying a reverse proxy as part of your Edge topology?
If answer yes, I'm being asked:
What IP address do you want to use for the port 4443 reverse proxy virtual server for external web services and simple URLs? This virtual server forwards traffic to the Lync Front End Servers.
** I supposed this will be an public IP address (or NATd to a public one) for external client access?
2-Are you deploying the internal interfaces for Microsoft Lync Server Edge Servers at this time?
** Do the Edge servers internal interfaces need to be load balanced?
3- Microsoft Lync Server Edge Reverse Proxy - External Interface: Would you like to create a BIG-IP virtual server to act as a reverse proxy for Lync external web services?
What unique, publicly routable IP address do you want to use for the port 443 reverse proxy virtual server?
** This Can be an IP address in the DMZ that will be NATd to an public IP address, correct?
What is the IP address of the internal reverse proxy BIG-IP virtual server for external web services that forwards traffic to the Lync Front End Servers?
** what IP address would this be? confused!
THIS IS MY LYNC SETUP:
Front End Pool
------- LTM VIP is 22.214.171.124 ( Internal Users connect to these directly then it comms to Edge Servers)
Reverse proxy pool
------ LTM VIP in the 172.10.40.X --- NAT to 126.96.36.199 (IS THIS EVEN NEEDED?)
EDGE34 188.8.131.52 (NAT to: 184.108.40.206)
----- LTM VIP 220.127.116.11 (need NAT to 18.104.22.168 ?)
EDGE35 22.214.171.124 (NAT to: 126.96.36.199)
----10.10.40.24 ( need load balancing? )
AGAIN I APPRECIATE YOUR RESPONSES.
