Delete an existing collection of Lync Phone Edition configuration settings in Lync Server 2013

Lync Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-23

If you no longer want to use a collection of settings for devices running Lync Phone Edition, delete it. If you delete a collection for a site, the global settings will apply to the phones in that site. You cannot delete the global collection.

Instead of deleting a collection, you might just want to change some of the settings. For details about how to do so, see Create or modify a collection of Lync Phone Edition configuration settings in Lync Server 2013.

  1. From a user account that is assigned to the CsUserAdministrator role or the CsAdministrator role, log on to any computer in your internal deployment.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server 2013 administrative tools.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Clients, and then click the Device Configuration navigation button.

  4. On the Device Configuration page, click the collection you want to delete, click the Edit menu, and then click Delete.

    If you delete the global collection, the settings just revert to the default settings. The collection does not go away.
  5. In the confirmation box, click OK.

You can delete Lync Phone Edition configuration settings by using Windows PowerShell and the Remove-CsUCConfiguration cmdlet. You can run this cmdlet either from the Lync Server 2013 Management Shell or from a remote session of Windows PowerShell. For details about using remote Windows PowerShell to connect to Lync Server, see the Lync Server Windows PowerShell blog article "Quick Start: Managing Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Using Remote PowerShell" at
