New-CsStorageServiceConfiguration

Skype for Business Server 2015
 

Topic Last Modified: 2015-03-09

Creates new instances of the Skype for Business Server 2015 Storage Service. The storage service provides a common infrastructure that enables Skype for Business Server 2015 components to use Exchange as a backend data store.

This cmdlet was introduced in Skype for Business Server 2015.

New-CsStorageServiceConfiguration -Identity <XdsIdentity> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-InMemory <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The command shown in Example 1 creates a new collection of storage service configuration settings applied to the Redmond site.

New-CsStorageServiceConfiguration -Identity "site:Redmond" 

The Skype for Business Server 2015 Storage Service enables Skype for Business Server 2015 components, such as archiving, to use Exchange as a back-end data store. This helps to reduce operating costs: for example, you do not need to have separate storage solutions for Exchange archiving and for Skype for Business Server 2015 archiving. The Storage Service also enables Skype for Business Server 2015 to leverage the heavy investment that has been made in Exchange archiving and storage, and prevents administrators from having to use multiple tools to retrieve archived data.

Separate instances of the Skype for Business Server 2015 Storage Service can be configured at the global, site, and service scope (for the Registrar service only). By default, Skype for Business Server 2015 provides you with a single, global collection of Storage Service configuration settings. However, administrators have the option of creating custom settings by using the New-CsStorageServiceConfiguration cmdlet. Those custom settings can later be deleted by using the Remove-CsStorageServiceConfiguration cmdlet.

Skype for Business Server Control Panel: The functions carried out by the New-CsStorageServiceConfiguration cmdlet are not available in the Skype for Business Server Control Panel.
