  1. Thanks for this excellent write up. I have a question regarding the creating of external FQDNs on the Edge server.

    Do i have match the names for AccessEdge, Webconf and AV to the simple urls that was configured on the FE server?

    Example: Assuming the simple url for meetings on the FrontEnd server is meet.testdomain.com, do i have to match the webconf FQDN on the Edge server to meet.testdomain.com?

    Thanks
