https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/sfbhybridvoice/2017/03/20/skype-for-business-cloud-connector-version-1-4-2-release/


Important Support Changes:
Starting with CCE 1.4.2 we will be a little more prescriptive on updates and SLAs:
When we release version N (1.4.2 in this case) there is a 60 day window within which version N-1 (the prior released version, 1.4.1) will also be supported against the SLA commitment. After 60 days only version N is supported against the SLA commitment.

Improvements:

a lot of new certificate based commands are included and all issues are now fixed!

Target: Define the certificate target, either EdgeServer or MediationServer.
  • Set-CcExternalCertificateFilePath -Path <Path to Edge PFX Cerfiticate> -Target EdgeServer
    Set the path to the certificate that has private key which the script will import and assign to the external interface of the Edge server during deployment.
  • Set-CcExternalCertificateFilePath -Path <Path to PSTN Gateway Certificate> -Target MediationServer.
    Set the path to the certificate that has the certificate chain of the issuing CA for the PSTN Gateway which the script will import to the Mediation server certificate store during deployment.
Import: Import the certificate for the Edge server or Mediation server.
  • Set-CcExternalCertificateFilePath -Path <Path to Edge PFX Cerfiticate> -Target EdgeServer -Import.
    Used to both import new certificate to the Edge server and assign it to the external interface. This action will put appliance in maintenance mode.
  • Set-CcExternalCertificateFilePath -Path < Path to PSTN Gateway Certificate > -Target MediationServer -Import.
