Import a voice route configuration file in Lync Server 2013


Topic Last Modified: 2012-11-01

If you want to save your voice routing configuration without publishing it, follow these steps to use the Lync Server Control Panel configuration export and import commands to save and retrieve a snapshot of your voice routing configuration. When you import a voice routing configuration file (.vcfg), but changes have been made to the voice routing configuration on the server in the meantime, the pages in the Voice Routing group in Lync Server Control Panel will indicate that there are uncommitted changes to voice routing. Those uncommitted changes are the differences between the two configurations that require reconciliation.

If you have made any uncommitted changes to the settings on any page within the group, the changes are saved in the exported voice configuration file (.vcfg). This enables you to make voice routing configuration changes during multiple sessions before you publish the changes.

  1. Log on to the computer as a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group, or as a member of the CsVoiceAdministrator, CsServerAdministrator, or CsAdministrator role. For details, see Delegate setup permissions in Lync Server 2013.

  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 2013 administrative tools.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Voice Routing.

  4. On the Actions menu, click Import configuration.

  5. Find the configuration file you want to import and then click Open.

  6. Click Commit, and then click Commit all.

    Whenever you import a voice configuration file, you must run the Commit all command to publish the configuration change. For details, see Publish pending changes to the voice routing configuration in Lync Server 2013 in the Operations documentation.
