Lync Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-23

You can delete a site or user configuration. The global configuration cannot be removed. If you delete the global configuration, it is automatically reset to the default values.

  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 Conferencing and then click Meeting Configuration.

  4. In the list of meeting configurations, click the site or pool configuration that you want to delete, click Edit, and then click Delete.

Meeting settings can be deleted by using Windows PowerShell and the Remove-CsMeetingConfiguration cmdlet. This cmdlet can be run 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

  • This command removes the meeting configuration settings applied to the Redmond site:
