Test-CsWebApp

 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-03-27

Verifies that authenticated users can use the Microsoft Lync Web App to join a Microsoft Lync Server 2010 conference.

Test-CsWebApp -TargetFqdn <String> [-External <SwitchParameter>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-OutVerboseVariable <String>] [-RegistrarPort <Nullable>] [-UserSipAddress <String>]
Test-CsWebApp [-TargetFqdn <String>] -User2Credential <PSCredential> -User2SipAddress <String> -UserCredential <PSCredential> -UserSipAddress <String> [-External <SwitchParameter>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-OutVerboseVariable <String>] [-RegistrarPort <Nullable>]
Test-CsWebApp -TargetUri <String> -UserSipAddress <String> [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-OutVerboseVariable <String>] [-WebCredential <PSCredential>]

The Test-CsWebApp cmdlet enables administrators to verify that authenticated users can employ the Lync Web App in order to join conferences. When you run Test-CsWebApp, the cmdlet attempts to obtain web tickets for a pair of test users by using the Web Ticket service. If the tickets can be obtained, and the test users authenticated, Test-CsWebApp will then try to connect to Lync Server 2010 by using the Lync Web App. If the connection is made, the cmdlet will then attempt to establish separate conferences for instant messaging, application sharing, and data collaboration.

Many administrators will use the CsHealthMonitoringConfiguration cmdlets to set up test users for each of their Registrar pools. These test users represent a pair of user accounts that have been preconfigured for use with synthetic transactions. (Typically these are test accounts and not accounts that belong to actual users.) If test users are configured for a pool, administrators can run Test-CsWebApp against that pool without having to specify the identity of (and supply the credentials for) the user account involved in the test.

Alternatively, administrators can run Test-CsWebApp using actual user accounts. If you decide to conduct the test using actual user accounts you will need to supply the logon name and password for each account.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

TargetFqdn

Optional

String

Fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the pool to be tested. For example:

-TargetFqdn atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com

User2Credential

Optional

PSCredential

User credential object for the second of the two user accounts to be tested. The value passed to Use2rCredential should be an object reference obtained by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. For example, this code returns a credentials object for the user litwareinc\kenmyer and stores that object in a variable named $y:

$y = Get-Credential "litwareinc\kenmyer"

You need to supply the user password when running this command.

User2SipAddress

Optional

String

SIP address for the second of the two user accounts to be tested. For example:

-User2SipAddress "sip:pilar@litwareinc.com"

This parameter is not required if you are running the test by using test users configured via the CsHealthMonitoringConfiguration cmdlets.

UserCredential

Optional

PSCredential

User credentials object for the first of the two user accounts to be tested. The value passed to UserCredential should be an object reference obtained by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. For example, this code returns a credentials object for the user litwareinc\pilar and stores that object in a variable named $x:

$x = Get-Credential "litwareinc\pilar"

You need to supply the user password when running this command.

UserSipAddress

Optional

String

SIP address for the first of the two user accounts to be tested. For example:

-UserSipAddress "sip:kenmyer@litwareinc.com"

This parameter is not required if you are running the test by using test users configured via the CsHealthMonitoringConfiguration cmdlets.

External

Optional

SwitchParameter

When present, causes Test-CsWebApp to test the Reach server’s external web relay. If this parameter is not present, the cmdlet will test the internal web relay. The web relay serves as an intermediary between the internal network and the Internet.

TargetUri

Optional

String

Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the Reach server. For example:

-TargetUri "https://atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com/reach"

You cannot use both the TargetUri parameter and the TargetFqdn parameter in the same command.

WebCredential

Optional

PS Credential object

User credential object for the user account to be used in the test. The value passed to UserCredential should be an object reference obtained by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. For example, this code returns a credentials object for the user litwareinc\kenmyer and stores that object in a variable named $x:

$x = Get-Credential "litwareinc\kenmyer"

This parameter is required if either the TargetUri parameter or the UserSipAddress/User2SipAddress parameters are specified and the computer on which the command is run does not have a server certificate.

RegistrarPort

Optional

Integer

SIP port used by the Registrar service. This parameter is not required if the Registrar uses the default port 5061.

OutVerboseVariable

Optional

String

When present, detailed output from running the cmdlet will be stored in the specified variable. For example, to store output in a variable named $TestOutput use the following syntax

-OutVerboseVariable TestOutput

Do not prepend a $ character when specifying the variable name.

Force

Optional

SwitchParameter

Suppresses the display of any non-fatal error message that might occur when running the command.

Test-CsWebApp returns an instance of the Microsoft.Rtc.SyntheticTransactions.TaskOutput object.

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

Test-CsWebApp -TargetFqdn atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com

The preceding command verifies whether or not a pair of test users configured for the pool atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com can use Lync Web App to join a conference. This command will only succeed if you have configured test users for the pool by using the CsHealthMonitoringConfiguration cmdlets.

-------------------------- Example 2 --------------------------

$cred1 = Get-Credential "litwareinc\kenmyer"
$cred2 = Get-Credential "litwareinc\pilar"

Test-CsWebApp -TargetFqdn atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com -UserSipAddress "sip:kenmyer@litwareinc.com" -UserCredential $cred1 -User2SipAddress "sip:pilar@litwareinc.com" -User2Credential $cred2

The commands shown in Example 2 verify whether or not the users Ken Myer and Pilar Ackerman can use Lync Web App to join a conference. To use actual user accounts, the first two commands in the example use the Get-Credential cmdlet to create a Windows PowerShell credentials objects for the two users (litwareinc\kenmyer and litwareinc\pilar). Those credentials objects (stored in the variables $cred1 and $cred2) are then used as parameter values for the UserCredential and User2Credential parameters in the final command in the example. In addition to the user credential parameters, the UserSipAddress and User2SipAddress parameters are included, along with the SIP addresses of the two user accounts being employed in the test.
