    • If you have a saved query, click the Open query icon, use the Open dialog box to retrieve the query (a .usf file), and then click Find.

You can lock and unlock user PINs by using Windows PowerShell and the Lock-CsClientPin and Unlock-CsClientPin cmdlets. You can run these cmdlets either from the Skype for Business Server Management Shell or from a remote session of Windows PowerShell. For details about using remote Windows PowerShell to connect to Skype for Business Server, see the blog article "Quick Start: Managing Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Using Remote PowerShell". The process is the same in Skype for Business Server.

  • To lock a user’s PIN, use the Lock-CsClientPin cmdlet. For example:

    Lock-CsClientPin -Identity "Ken Myer"
    

  • To unlock a user’s PIN, use the Unlock-CsClientPin cmdlet. For example:

    Unlock-CsClientPin -Identity "Ken Myer"
    

For more information, see the help topic for the Lock-CsClientPin and Unlock-CsClientPin cmdlets.
