Disable-CsAdDomain

 

Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-20

Undoes the domain preparation tasks carried out by the Enable-CsAdDomain cmdlet. This cmdlet is typically used only if you are uninstalling Lync Server from a domain. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Disable-CsAdDomain [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Domain <Fqdn>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-GlobalCatalog <Fqdn>] [-GlobalSettingsDomainController <Fqdn>] [-Report <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The command shown in Example 1 rolls back the domain preparation process in the local domain. Because the Force parameter is not included, the command will fail if the Disable-CsAdDomain cmdlet determines that at least one Front End Server, A/V Conferencing Server, or Web Services server is still active in the domain.

Disable-CsAdDomain

Example 2 rolls back the domain preparation process for the domain asia.litwareinc.com.

Disable-CsAdDomain -Domain asia.litwareinc.com

The command shown in Example 3 uses the Force parameter to force the rollback of the domain preparation process in the local domain. This means that rollback will occur even if the Disable-CsAdDomain cmdlet determines that at least one Front End Server, A/V Conferencing Server, or Web Services server is still active in the domain.

Disable-CsAdDomain -Force

When you install Lync Server in a domain, that domain must be correctly prepared, a process that includes extending the Active Directory schema to allow for the addition of attributes specific to Lync Server as well as assigning the required Access Control Entries to the universal groups needed for managing and operating Lync Server. If you later decide to uninstall Lync Server (or if you encounter problems during the setup process), you might need to roll back these domain-level changes. The Disable-CsAdDomain cmdlet provides a way for you to undo all the domain-level modifications made by the Enable-CsAdDomain cmdlet.

Note that the tasks carried out by the Disable-CsAdDomain cmdlet are similar to the tasks carried out by the following Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 command:

Lcscmd.exe /domain /action:DomainUnprep

Who can run this cmdlet: You must be a domain administrator in order to run the Disable-CsAdDomain cmdlet locally.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command.

Domain

Optional

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Deploy.Fqdn

Fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain where domain preparation should be rolled back (for example, -Domain asia.litwareinc.com). If this parameter is not included, rollback will take place on the local domain.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Deploy.Fqdn

Enables administrators to specify the FQDN of the domain controller to be used when running Disable-CsAdDomain. If not specified, the cmdlet will use the first available domain controller.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

If present rollback will occur even if the Disable-CsAdDomain cmdlet determines that at least one Front End, conferencing, or Web Services server is still active in the domain. If not present then the command will fail if a Front End, Conferencing, or Web Services server is still active in the domain.

GlobalCatalog

Optional

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Deploy.Fqdn

FQDN of a global catalog server in your domain. This parameter is not required if you are running the Disable-CsAdDomain cmdlet on a computer with an account in your domain.

GlobalSettingsDomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Deploy.Fqdn

FQDN of a domain controller where global settings are stored. If global settings are stored in the System container in Active Directory Domain Services this parameter must point to the root domain controller. If global settings are stored in the Configuration container, then any domain controller can be used and this parameter can be omitted.

Report

Optional

System.String

Enables you to specify a file path for the log file created when the cmdlet runs. For example: -Report "C:\Logs\DisableDomain.html"

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

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

None. The Disable-CsAdDomain cmdlet does not accept pipelined input.
