The Lync Enterprise and Lync Hosted services for Services Manager deliver unified communication services from the cloud. Installing the Lync web services creates a web site on the Lync Front-End server. Both the Services Manager Web server and Provisioning server issue commands on the Lync Front-End Server using a web service.
The Lync Enterprise service brings basic multi-tenancy to environments using Microsoft Lync Enterprise 2010 or 2013. The Lync Hosted service is deployed in environments using Lync Server 2010 or 2013 Multitenant Pack for Hosting, which provides full isolation of customers.

When preparing your Lync deployment for provisioning to customers, ensure the domain for the customer you are provisioning is included on the certificates that exist on the Lync Front-End and Director servers.
For provisioning the DNS records required for the Lync services, configure the DNS service. This enables Services Manager to provision the customer's forward lookup zone, as well as create the Host (A) record for SIP, and create the SRV records required when you provision the Lync service. You can define the Lync DNS records that Services Manager will create when you configure the Lync service settings. For more information about configuring the DNS service, see Deploy the DNS service.
