Schema Attributes and Descriptions

 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-10-06

This section describes all the schema attributes used by Lync Server 2013. For the classes associated with attributes, see Schema Attributes by Class. For a list of classes and attributes that are new in Lync Server 2013, see Schema Changes in Lync Server 2013.

Attributes that are linked pairs are specified as forward links or back links. An attribute that refers to another object is a forward link; the attribute of the other object that refers back to the first object is a back link. Forward links are updatable, while back links are read-only.

Some attributes have a bit-mask value. For these attributes, each setting is represented by a bit, and the displayed decimal value represents the bit position. Bit positions start with bit 0. For example, 1 (binary) is bit 0 set and 10000 (binary) is bit 4 set. Each bit represents a property. The following are some examples:

  • 10000 (binary) has a decimal value of 16 (that is, bit 4 is set).
  • 100000000 (binary) has a decimal value of 256 (that is, bit 8 is set).
  • 1100 (binary) has a decimal value of 12 (that is, bits 2 and 3 are set; properties represented by both bits are enabled).
  • 1111000001 (binary) has a decimal value of 961 (that is, bits 0, 6, 7, 8, and 9 are set; properties for each of these bits are enabled).

noteNote:
Live Communications Server 2003 does not support BENOTIFY requests. To interoperate with server applications written with the Live Communications Server 2003 server API running on Live Communications Server 2005 and third-party servers, BENOTIFY requests can be disabled by setting its value to FALSE.

msRTCSIP-PoolDomainFQDN

This attribute is a single-valued string value. The value of this attribute, when present, represents the pool’s domain FQDN if the administrator wants to create a Front End pool with an FQDN that does not conform to the Active Directory domain structure in which the Front End pool is created (for example, a SIP namespace disjoined from Domain Name System (DNS) namespace).

We recommend that you map the Front End pool domain FQDN to the domain name portion as the Active Directory domain in which the pool resides. Therefore, when no value is present in this attribute, the Front End pool FQDN will default to the Active Directory domain name structure, as denoted by the dnsHostName attribute.
