This Error you will receive if a actual Security Setting in Edge Browser is missing and can be solved as:
You need to add the https://admin.teams.microsoft.com and the https://login.microsoftonline.com page to the trust site. As of now, the feature in adding trusted websites on Microsoft Edge is not yet available on both

In a special scenario, where I faced certain issue publishing the Lync Topology, where the Lync Frontend Servers are located in Sub Domain, you need to open certain TCP Ports to at least one Root Domain Controller:
If you enabled the Lync Topology, you might face this issues:
Error: The given key was not present in dictionary. Type: KeyNotFoundException
Error: An error occurred when attempting to add "computer" to "RTCGroupxxx" Type: DeploymentException
CategoryInfo: InvalideOperation: ( Microsoft.R....Core.Service) WebServer:pool.<fqdn> execution failed on an unrecoverable error.
