Lync Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-23

You can view links between two network regions as part of call admission control (CAC). Regions within a network are linked through physical wide area network (WAN) connectivity. You can use the Lync Server Control Panel to view an existing link between two network regions. For details about creating or modifying network region link, see Configuring network region links in Lync Server 2013.

  1. From a user account that is a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group (or has equivalent user rights), or is assigned to 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 Network Configuration and then click Region Link.

  4. On the Region Link page, click the region link that you want to view.

    You can only view information about one region link at a time.
  5. From the Edit menu, select Show details.

You can view network region links by using Windows PowerShell and the Get-CsNetworkRegionLink cmdlet. You can run this cmdlet 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
