Grant-CsSetupPermission

 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-03-23

Grants Microsoft Lync Server 2010 setup permissions on an Active Directory organizational unit (OU).

Grant-CsSetupPermission -ComputerOu <String> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Domain <Fqdn>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-GlobalCatalog <Fqdn>] [-Report <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The domain preparation that takes place when you install Lync Server 2010 does not automatically add the permissions that enable members of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group to run the Enable-CsTopology cmdlet. That means that, by default, you must be a domain administrator in order to enable a topology. To give members of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group the right to enable a topology you must run the Grant-CsSetupPermissions cmdlet. In addition, you will need to run this cmdlet against each Active Directory container that houses computers running Lync Server.

Keep in mind that this cmdlet only grants permissions to the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group; the cmdlet cannot be used to grant permissions to other security groups or to individual users.

Who can run this cmdlet: You must be a domain administrator in order to run the Grant-CsSetupPermission cmdlet locally. 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 "Grant-CsSetupPermission"}

ComputerOU

Required

Active Directory distinguished name

If you prefer you can leave off the domain portion of the distinguished name when specifying the OU. For example:
