Has anyone deployed an internal installation of Microsoft Lync using a Public CA certificates?
At the moment, we do not have an internal CA to request certificates from and I wondered if there were any issues with using Public CAs for Lync?
I guess you will have to manually update the certificates when they expire, but is there anything else I need to be aware of?

The Lync implementation at my organization uses 100% public certificates for the same reason - lost of non-domain PCs.

I would look to deploy a new AD Root CA if there were a lot of other services which require certificates, but I'm getting to the tipping point where managing the additional servers etc. actually cost more than buying certs from a public CA!
I think I'll go the public CA way. Thanks for the quick reply.

I did this recently for a customer with many non-domain members in the internal network. It made no sense to use the AD Enterprise Root CA because this meant we had to distribute the CA cert to the clients.

No that should be absolutely fine. The only reason it is not done sometimes is due to cost. Cheers
