Get-CsComputer

 

Topic Last Modified: 2013-03-06

Returns information about the computers that perform service roles within your Lync Server infrastructure. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Get-CsComputer [-Identity <XdsGlobalRelativeIdentity>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
Get-CsComputer [-Filter <String>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
COMMON PARAMETERS: [-Local <SwitchParameter>] [-Pool <String>]

In Example 1 the Get-CsComputer cmdlet is used to return information about all the computers that perform service roles within your Lync Server infrastructure.

Get-CsComputer

The command shown in Example 2 uses the Filter parameter to return only those service role computers that are part of the litwareinc.com domain. The wildcard string *.litwareinc.com restricts the returned information to computers that have an FQDN that ends with the string value ".litwareinc.com".

Get-CsComputer -Filter "*.litwareinc.com"

In Example 3, the Identity parameter is used to limit the returned data to the one computer that has the FQDN atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com.

Get-CsComputer -Identity "atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com"

In Example 4, the Pool parameter is used to return information about all the computers found in the pool atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com.

Get-CsComputer -Pool "atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com"

The Get-CsComputer cmdlet provides a way to quickly identify computers that are running Lync Server services or server roles. Called without any parameters, the Get-CsComputer cmdlet returns a collection of all the computers that are running Lync Server services or server roles; this collection includes the Identity, pool name, and fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for each computer. Alternatively, you can use optional parameters such as Identity, Filter, or Pool to limit the returned data to a single computer or set of computers.

Who can run this cmdlet: By default, members of the following groups are authorized to run the Get-CsComputer cmdlet locally: RTCUniversalUserAdmins, RTCUniversalServerAdmins, RTCUniversalReadOnlyAdmins.
