Enable-CsComputer

 

Topic Last Modified: 2014-07-01

Enables new or newly-updated services or server roles on a computer running Lync Server. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Enable-CsComputer [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-GlobalCatalog <Fqdn>] [-GlobalSettingsDomainController <Fqdn>] [-Report <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The command shown in Example 1 activates any new Lync Server services or server roles that have been installed on the local computer.

Enable-CsComputer

Example 2 also activates any new Lync Server services or server roles that have been installed on the local computer. In this case, however, the addition of the Verbose parameter ensures that a step-by-step account of the tasks being carried out by the Enable-CsComputer cmdlet will be reported on the screen.

Enable-CsComputer -Verbose

Installing the required software does not automatically cause a computer to adopt a new service role; instead, that computer must be enabled before it actually begins to function in its new role. The Enable-CsComputer cmdlet provides a way for administrators to enable newly updated services or server roles on the local computer.

Who can run this cmdlet: You must be a local administrator and a member of the domain in order to run the Enable-CsComputer cmdlet locally.
