Back Up the Location Information Service Database

Lync Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-04-06

If you deployed Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1), we strongly recommend that you back up the configuration information in the location database used by the E9-1-1 Location Information service before you run the Remove Deployment Wizard. In a medium to large deployment that uses E9-1—1, the information entered is typically complex and can be difficult and time consuming to recreate. You can save the configuration information to a file in a compressed file format that you can recover later, if necessary.

E9-1-1 and the data contained in the Location Information service database can become very complex because of the requirements and interactions among the objects that you create to configure functional E9-1-1 for Lync Server 2010. For this reason, we recommend that you back up the configuration information.

  1. Log on to the computer where Lync Server Management Shell is installed as a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group or a role-based access control role to which you have assigned the Export-CsLisConfiguration cmdlet.

  2. Start the Lync Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Lync Server Management Shell.

  3. To use the Export-CsLisConfiguration cmdlet to export the configuration information in the location database to a file, type:

    Export-CsLisConfiguration -FileName <String>

    For example:

    Export-CsLisConfiguration -FileName
