Who can run this cmdlet: By default, members of the following groups are authorized to run the Test-CsAddressBookService cmdlet: RTCUniversalServerAdmins. To return a list of all the role-based access control (RBAC) roles this cmdlet has been assigned to (including any custom RBAC roles you have created yourself), run the following command from the Windows PowerShell prompt:

Get-CsAdminRole | Where-Object {$_.Cmdlets -match "Test-CsAddressBookService"}

Lync Server 2013 contains a number of cmdlets that initiate synthetic commands to confirm that a specific function or feature is working properly. Test-CsAddressBookService confirms that a defined user can connect and request the local files from the Address Book Web service.

For example:

Test-CsAddressBookService -TargetFqdn atl-cs-001.contoso.com -UserCredential contoso\bob -UserSipAddress "sip:bob@contoso.com"
