Validate addresses in Lync Server 2013


Topic Last Modified: 2012-09-17

Before publishing the location database, you must validate new locations against the Master Street Address Guide (MSAG) that is maintained by your SIP trunk or public switched telephone network (PSTN) E9-1-1 service provider.

For details about SIP trunk E9-1-1 service providers, see Choosing an E9-1-1 service provider for Lync Server 2013.

For details about validating addresses, see the Lync Server Management Shell documentation for the following cmdlets:

  • Get-CsLisServiceProvider

  • Set-CsLisServiceProvider

  • Remove-CsLisServiceProvider

  • Get-CsLisCivicAddress

  • Test-CsLisCivicAddress

  1. Start the Lync Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2013, and then click Lync Server Management Shell.

  2. Run the following cmdlets to configure the emergency service provider connection.

    $pwd = Read-Host -AsSecureString <password>
    Set-CsLisServiceProvider -ServiceProviderName Provider1 -ValidationServiceUrl <URL provided by provider> -CertFileName <location of certificate provided by provider> -Password $pwd
  3. Run the following cmdlet to validate the addresses in the location database.

    Get-CsLisCivicAddress | Test-CsLisCivicAddress -UpdateValidationStatus

    You can also use the Test-CsLisCivicAddress cmdlet to validate individual addresses.
