The FSC utility for FSOCS

 

Applies to: Forefront Security for Office Communications Server

Topic Last Modified: 2008-09-19

The FSC Utility (FSCUtility.exe) is a command-line utility with which you can enable or disable Microsoft Forefront Security for Office Communications Server (FSOCS).

noteNote:
Unlike a reset, when you use FSCUtility.exe, the Forefront Security services are not removed. Only the dependencies that have been set are removed.

FSCUtility.exe is located in the Forefront Security installation directory. It has the following parameters.

 

Parameter Description

FSCUtility /status

Gives an on-screen report showing the status of Forefront Security and the server.

FSCUtility /disable

Disables Forefront Security dependencies.

FSCUtility /enable

Enables Forefront Security dependencies.

There are other parameters, but they should only be used when you are directed to do so by support technicians.

You can use the FSC Utility in order to disable and enable FSOCS.

To disable FSOCS by removing dependencies
  1. Stop the Office Communications Server Front-End Service.

  2. In a command prompt window, navigate to the FSOCS installation directory, and then disable Forefront Security dependencies by typing:

    FSCUtility /disable

  3. To confirm that the Forefront Security dependencies have been removed, type:

    FSCUtility /status

  4. Restart the Office Communications Server Front-End service.
