EDGE existance in a hosting environment (HMC 4.5) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    Since the Edge server is a gateway for external users to communicate with internal users, and since i'm deploying HMC 4.5 (Hosted OCS), i don't have "internal" users and all my users will be "external" users. Security and Active Directory isolation apart, is there a reason to install an Edge server in a hosting environment?

  • The EDGE role is also required if you want External users to connect to External users.
    So in your scenario this is a requirement
