New-CsConferenceDirectory

 

Topic Last Modified: 2017-03-28

Creates a new conference directory for use in your organization. Conference directories are used to help dial-in conferencing users locate conference information. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

New-CsConferenceDirectory -HomePool <String> -Identity <XdsGlobalRelativeIdentity> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Creates a new conference directory with the Identity 42. This directory will be hosted on the pool atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com.

New-CsConferenceDirectory -Identity 42 -HomePool "atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com"

When you create a dial-in conferencing Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), those URIs are assigned unique SIP addresses. However, SIP addresses are difficult to translate to devices that are not SIP-aware; for example, a public switched telephone network (PSTN) telephone can’t translate a SIP address. Because of that, Skype for Business Server 2015 uses conference directories as a way to help these devices locate, and connect to, dial-in conferences. This is done by creating a SIP conference directory that is associated with each dial-in conferencing URI, and is identified by an integer value rather than a SIP URI. PSTN telephones and other devices can then use these numbers (rather than a SIP URI) when connecting to conferences; the directory number is included in the PSTN conference identification users enter when connecting to a dial-in conference.

New conference directories can be created by calling the New-CsConferenceDirectory cmdlet.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

HomePool

Required

System.String

Fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the Registrar pool where the new conference directory will be hosted. For example: -Identity atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com.

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Xds.XdsGlobalRelativeIdentity

Unique numeric identifier for the new conference directory. Identities can be any integer value between 0 and 9999 inclusive; however, Identities must be unique. (For example, you cannot have two directories with the Identity 575.) You do not need to follow a numeric order when creating new directories. For example, you can create a directory with the Identity 999 followed by a directory with the Identity 2 followed by a directory with the Identity 438, and so on.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Suppresses the display of any non-fatal error message that might occur when running the command.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Describes what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing the command.

System.Boolean

PARAMVALUE: $true | $false
