Lync Server Admin Guide: Configuring Your Network


 

 

Enabling Call Admission Control

 

  • To enable CAC

 

To enable Call Admission Control, use the Set-CsNetworkConfiguration cmdlet and set the EnableBandwidthPolicyCheck parameter to True:

 

Set-CsNetworkConfiguration –Identity global –EnableBandwidthPolicyCheck $True

 

To disable Call Admission Control, set the EnableBandwidthPolicyCheck parameter to False:

 

Set-CsNetworkConfiguration –Identity global –EnableBandwidthPolicyCheck $False

Enabling Media Bypass

 

  • To enable and configure media bypass

 

To enable media bypass for Call Admission Control, you must first use the Get-CsNetworkConfiguration cmdlet to create an object reference to your current media bypass settings. You can modify those bypass settings in memory, then use the Set-CsNetworkConfiguration cmdlet to write the changes to Lync Server:

 

$x = (Get-CsNetworkConfiguration).MediaBypassSettings

$x.AlwaysBypass = $True

$x.Enabled = $True

$x.InternalBypassMode = "Any"

Set-CsNetworkConfiguration -MediaBypassSettings $x

 

A similar process is used to disable media bypass for Call Admission Control:

 

$x = (Get-CsNetworkConfiguration).MediaBypassSettings

$x.AlwaysBypass = $False

$x.Enabled = $False

$x.InternalBypassMode = $Null

Set-CsNetworkConfiguration -MediaBypassSettings $x

Configuring Location Policy

 

  • To view location policies

 

To view all your location policies, use the Set-CsLocationPolicy cmdlet:

 

Get-CsLocationPolicy

 

This command retrieves all the location policies configured at the site scope:

 

Get-CsLocationPolicy –Filter "site:*"

 

And this command retrieves the specified per-user location policy:

 

Get-CsLocationPolicy –Identity "RedmondLocationPolicy"

 

 

  • To create a new location policy

 

To create a new location policy, use the New-CsLocationPolicy cmdlet:

 

New-CsLocationPolicy -Identity site:Redmond -EnhancedEmergencyServicesEnabled $True

 

Location policies can be created at either the site or the per-user scope.

 

 

  • To modify a location policy

 

To modify a location policy, use the Set-CsLocationPolicy cmdlet:

 

Set-CsLocationPolicy -Identity site:Redmond -EnhancedEmergencyServicesEnabled $False

 

 

  • To delete a location policy

 

To delete a location policy, use the Remove-CsLocationPolicy cmdlet:

 

Remove-CsLocationPolicy -Identity site:Redmond

 

The following command removes all the location policies configured at the site scope:

 

Get-CsLocationPolicy –Filter "site:*" | Remove-CsLocationPolicy

 

And this command removes all the location policies configured at the per-user scope:

 

Get-CsLocationPolicy –Filter "tag:*" | Remove-CsLocationPolicy

Configuring Bandwidth Policy Profile

 

  • To create a new bandwidth policy profile

 

To create a new bandwidth policy profile use the New-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile cmdlet:

 

New-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile -Identity LowBWLimits -AudioBWLimit 2000 -AudioBWSessionLimit 200 -VideoBWLimit 1400 -VideoBWSessionLimit 500

 

 

  • To modify a bandwidth policy profile

 

To modify a bandwidth policy profile, use the Set-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile cmdlet:

 

Set-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile -Identity LowBWLimits -AudioBWLimit 1000

 

 

  • To delete a bandwidth policy profile

 

To delete a bandwidth policy profile, use the Remove-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile cmdlet:

 

Remove-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile -Identity LowBWLimits

 

This command deletes all your bandwidth policy profiles:

 

Get-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile | Remove-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile

Configuring Network Regions

 

  • To create a network region

 

To create a network region use the New-CsNetworkRegion cmdlet. Note that each new region must be associated with a central site:

 

New-CsNetworkRegion -Identity NorthAmerica -Description "All North American Locations" -CentralSite Redmond-NA-MLS -AudioAlternatePath $False -VideoAlternatePath $False

 

 

  • To modify a network region

 

To modify an existing network region, use the Set-CsNetworkRegion cmdlet:

 

Set-CsNetworkRegion -Identity EMEA -VideoAlternatePath $False
