Certificate Assignment Fails - "HTTPS Binding Not Found on Website"

Issue with : “Https Binding not found on the web site.”

I ran in to an interesting little problem this week while building a Lync 2013 Standard Edition front-end in my dev VMWare environment - one that was completely reproducible.

Essentially while assigning certificates you’d receive this error:

Error: An error occurred: "Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Deployment.CertificateException" "Https binding not found on the web site." 04/25/2013 8:12:17 PM

Having looked, I saw that the actual Lync websites were missing, even though I’d already gone through the process of installing the Lync components. Odd. Running the process of installing the Lync components
again resulted in the websites being created, and the certificates assigning properly.

Like I say, completely reproducible on the Windows 2012 Server platform I was using - very odd, couldn’t nail down why it wasn’t installing all the components on the first run? Running the install twice resulted in it working just fine.

I’ll dig out the logs and have a more detailed look and see what it’s not doing on the first run, but it’s an easy issue to step around.
