  • No, the installation process blocks those two roles from coexisting on the same server.

  • This is not possible. Why would you want to do that? All the functionality you need is on the frontend server which will normally be used to offer OCS functionality for users on the internal LAN inside your company. The Edge server should be installed on a different server (in a peremiter network) and will be used for federation and users that connect from an external network.

  • The validation wizard will do some testing with the Edge server.  If you want to do client testing there you can put a user on the internet and make sure they can IM with internal users, download the address book, and initiate a Live Meeting session.  When you test Live Meeting make sure you test uploading content (such as a ppt or doc file), app sharing, and whiteboarding.  If you can successfully run all three of those then you know it's working as expected.
