Update-CsUserDatabase

 

Topic Last Modified: 2015-03-09

Forces the back-end user database to clear its replication status with Active Directory. This causes the database to re-read all the user-related information stored in Active Directory Domain Services. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Update-CsUserDatabase [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-Fqdn <Fqdn>]

The command shown in Example 1 locates the user database for the pool where the local computer is located, then forces that database to connect to and return complete user information from Active Directory.

Update-CsUserDatabase

Example 2 shows how you can force a specific user database to re-read data from Active Directory. In this case, that’s the user database for the pool atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com.

Update-CsUserDatabase -Fqdn atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com

The Skype for Business Server 2015 user database holds detailed information about such things as contacts, groups, and access permissions. As such, the database is required to periodically synch its contents with the information stored in Active Directory.

More often than not, the automatic synch between the user database and Active Directory will keep the information in the user database up to date. However, it is possible that a problem might occur that prevents this automatic synchronization from taking place. In a case such as that, you can use the Update-CsUserDatabase cmdlet to force the user database to refresh its contents by re-reading all of the user information stored in Active Directory. You might also need to run this cmdlet if a product update ever includes a change to the user replicator service.
