In Lync Server 2013 Control Panel, you use meeting configuration setting to control how meetings are implemented in your deployment. This includes the following meeting configurations:

  • A global configuration that is created by default when you deploy Lync Server 2013.

  • Optional site-level and user-level configurations that you can create and use to specify how meetings are implemented for specific sites or users.

  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. On the Meeting Configuration page, click the meeting configuration that you would like to view.

  5. In Edit File Filter, select the Show Details… check box.

    Edit Meeting Configuration - <policy> opens displaying the settings for the selected policy. For details about configuring the settings, see Create or modify a collection of meeting configuration settings in Lync Server 2013.

Meeting configuration settings can be viewed by using Windows PowerShell and the Get-CsMeetingConfiguration cmdlet. This cmdlet can be run either from the Lync Server 2013 Management Shell or from a remote session of Windows PowerShell.
