  • That is because you cannot install the Edge Server roles on ANY other host with OCS services installed.  The Edge Server must be a separate physical host that is not a domain member and is located in a perimeter network of some sort.  This is a VERY basic requirement and is covered many times in the product documentation.

    I don't mean to be rude but I see you have a lot of posts recently and seem to be struggling with this deployment. I HIGHLY recommended you take a few hours and read through as much of the product documentation as possible.  OCS is quite complicated and you can save yourself a ton of headaches by getting some of that stuff figured out beforehand.  Trust me, I tried it the hard way the first time as well :)

    Really read closely through the Planning and Architecture sections:

  • Thanks Jeff...

    What to do that's my lack of knowledge getting overwhelming....i gone through the guide and i started installation Access Edge Server deployed Server Roles
    the following

    • Install for Edge Server                       Complete
    • Activate Edge Server                         Complete - Run Again
    • Configure Edge Server                       Complete - Run Again
    • Configure Certificate for Edge Server  RUN
    • Start Service                                     Grayed
    • Validation Edge Server                       Grayed
    After this i tried to start the services manually from Services.msc but unfortunately couldn't....
