Deleting a chat room or category in Lync Server 2013
Topic Last Modified: 2012-11-01
Persistent Chat rooms can be deleted. If you have a chat room that is no longer being used, you can disable it. For details, see Disabling or enabling a chat room in Lync Server 2013.
A Persistent Chat administrator can query for disabled chat rooms, and can periodically purge and permanently delete the chat rooms, by using the Windows PowerShell cmdlet, Remove-CsPersistentChatRoom.
Categories can be deleted. However, to delete a category, you must first either delete all chat rooms under it or move the chat rooms to a new category, leaving an empty category for deletion. Persistent Chat Server does not allow you to delete a category that contains chat rooms. For details, see Moving a chat room from one category to another in Lync Server 2013.
For details about deleting empty categories by using the Windows PowerShell command-line interface, see "Room Management" in Configuring Persistent Chat Server by using Windows PowerShell cmdlets.
