New-CsNetworkSite

 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-03-27

Creates a new network site for use with call admission control (CAC) or Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1).

New-CsNetworkSite -Identity <XdsGlobalRelativeIdentity> -NetworkRegionID <String> [-BWPolicyProfileID <String>] [-BypassID <String>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Description <String>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-InMemory <SwitchParameter>] [-LocationPolicy <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]
New-CsNetworkSite -NetworkRegionID <String> -NetworkSiteID <String> [-BWPolicyProfileID <String>] [-BypassID <String>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Description <String>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-InMemory <SwitchParameter>] [-LocationPolicy <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Network sites are the offices or locations configured within each region of a CAC or E9-1-1 deployment. This cmdlet creates a new site and optionally associates it with a region. For example, a network region for North America might be associated with networks sites such as Chicago, Redmond, and Vancouver. A CAC network site must be created for every site within an organization, even if that site has no bandwidth limitations.

Who can run this cmdlet: By default, members of the following groups are authorized to run the New-CsNetworkSite cmdlet locally: RTCUniversalServerAdmins. To return a list of all the role-based access control (RBAC) roles this cmdlet has been assigned to (including any custom RBAC roles you have created yourself), run the following command from the Windows PowerShell prompt:

Get-CsAdminRole | Where-Object {$_.Cmdlets –match "New-CsNetworkSite"}

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

XdsGlobalRelativeIdentity

A unique identifier for the newly created network site. Sites are created only at the global scope, so this identifier does not need to specify a scope. Instead, it contains a string that is unique among all network sites within the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 deployment.

NetworkRegionID

Required

String

The Identity of the network region that this site is associated with. This parameter must contain a value if you want to provide a BypassID (either through auto-generation or manually), or if the EnableBandwidthPolicyCheck property of the network configuration is True. You can retrieve the network configuration settings by calling the Get-CsNetworkConfiguration cmdlet.

NetworkSiteID

Required

String

This value is the same as the Identity. You cannot specify both an Identity and a NetworkSiteID; a value entered for one will be automatically used for both.

BWPolicyProfileID

Optional

String

The Identity of the bandwidth policy profile that will define the bandwidth limitations for this site. You can retrieve a list of available profiles by calling the Get-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile cmdlet.

If you specify a value for this parameter, you must also specify a value for the NetworkRegionID parameter.

BypassID

Optional

String

A globally unique identifier (GUID). This GUID is used to map network sites to media bypass settings within a CAC or E9-1-1 network configuration. (Use this BypassID value in the call to New-CsNetworkMediaBypassConfiguration.)

If you do not specify a value for this parameter, a value will be automatically generated, but only if you supply a value for the NetworkRegionID parameter. If you do not supply a NetworkRegionID parameter, no BypassID will be generated. You also cannot explicitly supply a value for the BypassID parameter without also supplying a value for the NetworkRegionID parameter.

If you explicitly specify a value, it must be in the format of a GUID (for example, 3b24a047-dce6-48b2-9f20-9fbff17ed62a). Auto-generation is recommended. If you manually enter a value, you will receive a confirmation prompt to verify that you don’t want to auto-generate the value.

Description

Optional

String

A string that describes the site. This parameter can be used to provide a more descriptive explanation of what the site is for or where it is than can be expressed by the Identity alone.

LocationPolicy

Optional

String

The name of the location policy associated with this site. The location policy assigns specific E9-1-1 settings to the site. You can retrieve a list of location policies by calling the Get-CsLocationPolicy cmdlet.

Force

Optional

SwitchParameter

Suppresses any confirmation prompts that would otherwise be displayed before making changes.

InMemory

Optional

SwitchParameter

Creates an object reference without actually committing the object as a permanent change. If you assign the output of this cmdlet called with this parameter to a variable, you can make changes to the properties of the object reference and then commit those changes by calling this cmdlet’s matching Set- cmdlet.

WhatIf

Optional

SwitchParameter

Describes what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing the command.

Confirm

Optional

SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command.

Create an object of type Microsoft.Rtc.Management.WritableConfig.Settings.NetworkConfiguration.DisplayNetworkSiteType.

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

New-CsNetworkSite -Identity Vancouver -NetworkRegionID NorthAmerica

In this example a new network site named Vancouver is created. The site name is specified as the value for the Identity parameter. A value is also specified for the NetworkRegionID parameter, which associates the site with the region (in this example NorthAmerica). A BypassID value will be automatically generated. Manually setting a value for BypassID is not recommended.

Notice that the command in this example did not include the BWPolicyProfileID parameter. Unless (or until) a value is added to this site later using Set-CsNetworkSite, it will have no bandwidth limitations for media connections.

-------------------------- Example 2 --------------------------

New-CsNetworkSite -Identity Paris -NetworkRegionID EMEA -BWPolicyProfileID LowBWLimits

In Example 2 we create a new network site named Paris. The site name is specified as the value for the Identity parameter. As in Example 1 we also specify a value for the NetworkRegionID, this time the region EMEA. Once again we are following the recommended path by allowing the cmdlet to generate the BypassID. Unlike Example 1, this example also specifies a value for the BWPolicyProfileID parameter: LowBWLimits. The policies associated with that profile will be used for this site.
