Lync Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-21

Manually invokes backup synchronization between a Lync Server 2013 pool and its designated backup pool. This allows administrators to synchronize data without waiting for Lync Server replication. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2013.

Invoke-CsBackupServiceSync -PoolFqdn <Fqdn> [-BackupModule <String>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>]

The command shown in Example 1 synchronizes the backup services for the pool atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com.

Invoke-CsBackupServiceSync -PoolFqdn "atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com"

The Invoke-CsBackupServiceSync cmdlet enables administrators to synchronize the data between a Registrar pool and its backup pool. The Invoke-CsBackupServiceSync cmdlet will only copy as much data as needed in order to bring the two pools into sync.

To return a list of all the role-based access control (RBAC) roles this cmdlet has been assigned to (including any custom RBAC roles you have created yourself), run the following command from the Windows PowerShell command-line interface prompt:

Get-CsAdminRole | Where-Object {$_.Cmdlets –match "Invoke-CsBackupServiceSync"}

Lync Server Control Panel: The functions carried out by the Invoke-CsBackupServiceSync cmdlet are not available in the Lync Server Control Panel.


Parameter Required Type Description




Fully qualified domain name of the pool where backup service synchronization is being invoked. For example:

-PoolFqdn "atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com"




Indicates the type of data to be synchronized. Valid values are:

* UserServices.PresenceFocus

* ConfServices.DataConf

* CentralMgmt.CMSMaster




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

String value. The Invoke-CsBackupServiceSync cmdlet can accept a pipelined string value representing the fully qualified domain name of a Lync Server 2013 pool.
