Create location policies in Skype for Business Server 2015

 

Topic Last Modified: 2016-07-12

Configure enhanced emergency service (E9-1-1) location policies in Skype for Business Server Enterprise Voice.

Skype for Business Server uses a location policy to enable Skype for Business clients for E9-1-1 during client registration. A location policy contains the settings that define how E9-1-1 will be implemented. For more information, see Plan the location policy for Skype for Business Server 2015.

You define location policies by using the Skype for Business Control Panel or by using the New-CsLocationPolicy cmdlet.

noteNote:
Skype for Business Server now supports the configuration of multiple emergency numbers for a client. For information about multiple emergency numbers, see Plan for multiple emergency numbers in Skype for Business Server 2015 and Configure multiple emergency numbers in Skype for Business 2015.

You can edit the global location policy and create new tagged location policies. A client obtains a global policy when it is not located within a subnet with an associated location policy, or when the client has not been directly assigned a location policy. Tagged policies are assigned to subnets or users.

To create a location policy, you must use an account that is a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group, or is a member of the CsVoiceAdministrator administrative role, or has equivalent administrator rights and permissions.

For more information, see Plan the location policy for Skype for Business Server 2015. Cmdlets in this procedure use a location policy defined using the following values. For a complete description of cmdlet parameters and values, see New-CsLocationPolicy.

    Set-CsLocationPolicy -Identity Global -EnhancedEmergencyServicesEnabled $true -LocationRequired "disclaimer" -EnhancedEmergencyServiceDisclaimer "Your company policy requires you to set a location. If you do not set a location emergency services will not be able to locate you in an emergency. Please set a location." -PstnUsage "emergencyUsage" -EmergencyDialString "911" -ConferenceMode "twoway" -ConferenceUri "sip:+14255550123@litwareinc.com" -EmergencyDialMask "112" NotificationUri "sip:security@litwareinc.com" -UseLocationForE911Only $true -LocationRefreshInterval 2
    
    
  3. Run the following to create a tagged Location Policy.

    New-CsLocationPolicy -Identity Tag:Redmond - EnhancedEmergencyServicesEnabled $true -LocationRequired "disclaimer" -EnhancedEmergencyServiceDisclaimer "Your company policy requires you to set a location. If you do not set a location emergency services will not be able to locate you in an emergency. Please set a location." -UseLocationForE911Only $false -PstnUsage "EmergencyUsage" -EmergencyDialString "911" -EmergencyDialMask "112" -NotificationUri "sip:security@litwareinc.com" -ConferenceUri "sip:+14255550123@litwareinc.com" -ConferenceMode "twoway" -LocationRefreshInterval 2
    
    
  4. Run the following cmdlet to apply the tagged Location Policy created in step 3 to a user policy.

    (Get-CsUser | where { $_.Name -match "UserName" }) | Grant-CsLocationPolicy -PolicyName Redmond
