Ok, first real post….
And yes this probably has a been covered by someone smarter and sexier than I but you have to start somewhere…..
Installed a Lync 2013 Standard Edition server on a Windows Server 2012 R2 server (my first, in the hope chest you go :)) and though I had a couple of odd issues while bootstrapping (SQL Express), it generally went well. Until-I-Started-The-Services. Everything started ok but I noticed a couple of odd event log messages:

Flabbergasted and out of ideas I turned to BING, yes thats right, BING. Google is the devil. Anyways I came across a couple posts but ultimately this resolved my issue…
- Click Start, type regedit in the Start search box, and then click regedit.exe in the results list.
- Locate the following registry subkey: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\Schannel
- Right-click Schannel, and then click New DWORD (32-bit) value.
- Type EnableSessionTicket, then press Enter.
- Right-click EnableSessionTicket, and then click Modify.
- Change the existing value to 2, and then press Enter.
- Exit Registry editor.
- Open the Lync Server Management Shell.
- Run the following Lync Server PowerShell commands in the given order:
Poof, BOOM! On the arm, the error went away and all is well. Hope this is useful in some way. If it is, send a SASE with 1 billion dollars to:
I kid, I kid.
