Lync 2013 – Setting up the Lync Web Scheduler for Lync Meetings

In this how to guide we will run through the requirement and procedure of setting up the Lync Web Scheduler for Lync 2013 Meetings.

Firstly we need to jump into Lync Management Shell and run a command like the below (Note: Change the domain address to match your own. As with other guides im using my lab domain of northernlync.co.uk)

$urlEntry = New-CsSimpleUrlEntry -Url “https://scheduler.northernlync.co.uk”

$simpleUrl = New-CsSimpleUrl -Component “WebScheduler” -Domain “*” -SimpleUrlEntry $urlEntry -ActiveUrl “https://scheduler.northernlync.co.uk”
Set-CsSimpleUrlConfiguration -Identity Global -SimpleUrl @{Add=$simpleUrl} -Verbose

If you run the following cmdlet in your Lync ManagementShell you will the new scheduler is now listed

Get-CsSimpleUrlConfiguration | fl *

Now from a Lync perspective we are complete in the requirements. Next we need to do a few additional steps to be fully complete.

Next Step is to add the following cname record into DNS

Add CNAME record on DNS for scheduler that resolves to your Lync 2013 frontend or Pool

Next Step we need the following subject alternate name as an additional record onto our internal Lync frontend server certificates

Add scheduler.northernlync.co.uk as an additional SAN on default internal cert using Lync deployment wizard.

Next Step, Either using the Lync deployment wizard run step 2 on all the frontends in your pool, or if you are a UC Pro you can simply run the Lync bootstrapper.exe on all your frontends

Final Step
Test https://scheduler.northernlync.co.uk.
