We have just released Cloud Connector Edition (CCE) 1.4.2, see the changelog posted here: Skype for Business Cloud Connector Version 1.4.2 Release


CCE 1.4.2 brings a lot of bugfixes but does not change fundamentally how you plan, deploy and operate CCE. The training – originally created for CCE 1.4.1 – is still valid: Cloud Connector Edition Deep Dive


The only change that we want to point out from a deployment perspective is, that when you assign external certificates with Set-CcExternalCertificateFilePath:

  • Previously this was done for the Edge Server only, so Office 365 could establish a trusted connection.
  • Now we also allow to assign an external certificate to the Mediation Server. This will allow you to establish an encrypted TLS session between the gateway(s) and the Mediation Server – which is a recommended configuration.
  • In order to specify if the target is the Edge Server or Mediation Server, you need to provide the Target attribute:
    • Example for Edge Server 
      Set-CcExternalCertificateFilePath -Target EdgeServer -Path C:\CloudConnector\Certificates\AdatumPublicEdge.pfx

       

    • Example for Mediation Server
      Set-CcExternalCertificateFilePath -Target MediationServer -Path C:\CloudConnector\Certificates\AdatumPublicMediation.pfx
  • In addition, the import parameter allows you to update existing certificates
    • Example to replace an existing certificate on the Mediation Server
      Set-CcExternalCertificateFilePath -Target MediationServer -Path C:\CloudConnector\Certificates\AdatumPublicMediation.pfx -Import
  • For TechNet documentation see here: Set-CcExternalCertificateFilePath
