  • Can you provide some information on your topology/configuration  such as the following information:

    1. Edge Server FQDN
    2. A/V Edge Role FQDN
    3. Authentication Service FQDN
    4. Certificate SN, SAN
    5. Is this an enterprise pool or standard ed?

    Also, try the following:
    1. Telnet to port 5061 on the front end server, does it connect?

  • Often times this is caused by a certificate error. Please verify your certificates.

  • Are you using wildcards in your certificate like *.domain.com, in OCS is not often recommended to use this kind of character in cert request.
