After a Mediation Server Pool has been installed, there generally is not much configuration left to do. This section discusses some of the configuration options available to a Mediation Server and addresses items that administrators should be aware of when configuring a Mediation Server.

Certificate Requirements

The Mediation Server role in Lync Server 2013 is much like any other role in that it uses certificates both for communication to other servers and for client services. A single certificate is required for each server in the Mediation Server Pool. This certificate is very basic, and has the following requirement:

Default—The default certificate is used for MTLS communications between servers, and for securing SIP signaling in client communications. The certificate should contain the pool name in the Subject field, each Mediation Server’s name as a subject alternative name.

High-Availability

Redundancy for the Mediation Server role is provided in a similar fashion as with Front End Servers and requires just adding more Mediation Servers to a pool. Load balancing is achieved via DNS load balancing, by providing multiple IP addresses that resolve to the pool name of the Mediation Servers. If one IP address is unavailable, the endpoint will attempt to connect to another IP address provided for the pool in DNS.


Tip

Plan for high-availability in the environment from the start, even if multiple Mediation Servers will not be deployed initially. Completing the planning and configuration for high-availability simplifies the deployment later and requires nearly no changes to the existing infrastructure. Adding high-availability to the environment later simply becomes a matter of adding a new server to the topology, and creating the DNS records.



Adding Mediation Servers to a Pool

Adding a Mediation Server to a pool is much like creating the initial pool. The topology must first be updated and published to reflect the change. Follow the steps described previously to import the existing topology in Topology Builder, and then follow these steps to add another pool member:

1. Expand the Mediation Pools node.

2. Right-click the Mediation Pool name and select New Server.

3. Enter the fully qualified domain name of the new Mediation Server.

4. Select either Use All Configured IP Addresses or Limit Service Usage to Selected IP Addresses and enter the IP addresses to be used by the Lync Server 2013 services.

5. Optionally, select the IPv6 check box if IPv6 is in use on the network.

6. Click OK when complete.
