Lync Server Admin Guide: Configuring Support for Clients and Devices


 

 

Specify the Client Versions Supported in Your Organization

 

  • To edit the default client version policy

 

As a general rule, client version policies are most-easily edited by modifying the client version policy rules associated with those policies. However, there might be times when you find it useful to use the Set-CsClientVersionPolicy cmdlet to directly modify a policy. For example, the following set of commands removes all the current client version policy rules from the Redmond site policy, copies the client version policy rules from the Dublin site policy, then assigns those same rules to the Redmond site:

 

Set-CsClientVersionPolicy -Identity site:Redmond -Rules $Null

 

$x = Get-CsClientVersionPolicy -Identity site:Dublin | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Rules

 

Set-CsClientVersionPolicy -Identity site:Redmond -Rules $x

View the Status of Services Running on a Computer

 

  • To view the status of services running on a computer

 

To view the status of all the Lync Server services running on all of your computers, use the following command:

 

Get-CsService | Select-Object Role, PoolFqdn | Sort-Object PoolFqdn, Role

 

To view the services running on a specific computer, use this command, replacing atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com with the fully qualified domain name of the computer to be viewed:

 

Get-CsService | Where-Object {$_.PoolFqdn –eq "atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com"} | Select-Object Role, PoolFqdn | Sort-Object PoolFqdn, Role

Modify the Default Action for Clients Not Explicitly Supported or Restricted

 

  • To modify the default action for clients not explicitly supported or restricted

 

To modify the default action for client applications that do not appear in a client version policy, use the Set-CsClientVersionConfiguration cmdlet and set the value of the DefaultAction property.

 

Set-CsClientVersionConfiguration –Identity global -DefaultAction "BlockWithUrl" -DefaultURL "https://litwareinc.com/csclients"

 

 

  • To disable client version control

 

To disable client version control, use the Set-CsClientVersionConfiguration cmdlet and set the Enabled property to False:

 

Set-CsClientVersionConfiguration –Identity global –Enabled $False

 

To enable client version control, set the Enabled property to True:

 

Set-CsClientVersionConfiguration –Identity global –Enabled $True

View Software Updates for Devices in Your Organization

To review all the device update rules currently in use in your organization, use the Get-CsDeviceUpdateRule cmdlet:

 

Get-CsDeviceUpdateRule

 

This command returns all the device update rules assigned to a specified Web Server:

 

Get-CsDeviceUpdateRule -Filter "service:WebServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com*"

 

To approve a device update rule for widespread use, use the Approve-CsDeviceUpdate cmdlet:

 

Approve-CsDeviceUpdateRule -Identity service:WebServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com/d5ce3c10-2588-420a-82ac-dc2d9b1222ff9

 

To reject a device update rule, use the Reset-CsDeviceUpdateRule cmdlet:

 

Reset-CsDeviceUpdateRule -Identity service:WebServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com/d5ce3c10-2588-420a-82ac-dc2d9b1222ff9

 

To rollback a previously-approved device update rule, use the Restore-CsDeviceUpdateRule cmdlet:

 

Restore-CsDeviceUpdateRule -Identity service:WebServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com/d5ce3c10-2588-420a-82ac-dc2d9b1222ff9
