Lync Server 2013
 

Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-23

You can create or modify mobility policy to allow mobile users to use supported mobile devices for Lync functionality such as instant messaging (IM), presence, and contacts. You can create or modify mobility policies from Lync Server 2013 Control Panel or Lync Server 2013 Management Shell

  1. From a user account that is assigned to the CsUserAdministrator role or the CsAdministrator role, log on to any computer in your internal deployment.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server Administrative Tools.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Clients, and then click the Mobility Policy navigation button.

  4. On the Mobility Policy page, click New, and do one of the following:

    1. To create a site mobility policy, click Site policy, click a site, click OK, review the default settings, and, if you want to, make any changes.
    2. To create a user mobility policy, click User policy, type a name, review the default settings, and if you want to, make any changes.
  5. Click Commit.

  1. From a user account that is assigned to the CsUserAdministrator role or the CsAdministrator role, log on to any computer in your internal deployment.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server Administrative Tools.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Clients, and then click the Mobility Policy navigation button.

  4. On the Mobility Policy page, click one of the existing mobility policies.

  5. On the Edit menu, click Show details.

  6. Edit any of the settings.

  7. Click Commit.

You can create mobility policies (at the site scope or the per-user scope) by using Windows PowerShell and the New-CsMobilityPolicy cmdlet. Additionally, you can use the Set-CsMobilityPolicy cmdlet to modify any of your existing policies, including the global policy. These cmdlets can be run either from the Lync Server 2013 Management Shell or from a remote session of Windows PowerShell. For details about using remote Windows PowerShell to connect to Lync Server, see the Lync Server Windows PowerShell blog article "Quick Start: Managing Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Using Remote PowerShell" at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkId=255876.

  • This command creates a new mobility policy for the Redmond site:

    New-CsMobilityPolicy -Identity "site:Redmond"
    

    Because no parameters (other than the mandatory Identity parameter) were specified in the preceding command, the policies will use the default values for all its properties.

  • To create a mobility policy at the per-user scope, specify a unique Identity for the policy:

    New-CsMobilityPolicy -Identity "RedmondMobilityPolicy"
    

  • To create policies that use different property values, include the appropriate parameter and parameter value. For example, this command creates mobility policy that disables Call via Work:

    New-CsMobilityPolicy -Identity "site:Redmond" -EnableOutsideVoice $False
    

  • Multiple property values can be modified by including multiple parameters. For example, this command creates a policy that disables both mobility and Call via Work:

    New-CsMobilityPolicy "site:Redmond" -EnableMobility $False -EnableOutsideVoice $False
    

For details, see the Help topic for the New-CsMobilityPolicy and the Set-CsMobilityPolicy cmdlets.
