Just wanted to make a quite note about the following prompt that you may receive when you launch the Lync Server 2010 Control Panel:
Cannot find appropriate URL, please input a URL to connect Lync Server Control Panel
If you are prompted with this message, you can either use the simple URL such as: https://lyncadmin.domain.local/cscp
… or the FQDN name such as: https://lyncSTDSRV.domain.local/cscp
I’m not sure about the cause of this prompt but I seem to only experience it whenever I use IE 9 but not IE8.
