Create or modify a collection of client version configuration settings in Lync Server 2013

Lync Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-23

Client version configuration settings are used to turn client version control on or off. The global client version configuration installs with Lync Server and is used to enable or disable client version control for the entire server deployment. You can also configure client version configuration settings for individual sites. You can create or modify client version configuration settings from Lync Server 2013 Control Panel or Lync Server 2013 Management Shell.

Because anonymous users are not associated with a user, site, or service, anonymous users are affected by global-level policies only.

  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 Client Version Configuration navigation button.

  4. On the Client Version Configuration page, do the following:

    • To create a new configuration, click New, select a site, click OK name, and update the settings.

    • To modify a configuration, select the configuration, click Edit, click Show details, and make changes to the settings.

You can create client version configuration settings by using the New-CsClientVersionConfiguration cmdlet, and modify them by using the Set-CsClientVersionConfiguration cmdlet. These cmdlets 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
