Returns diagnostic information for the data conferencing capabilities included in Lync Server 2013.

This cmdlet was introduced in the Cumulative Updates for Lync Server 2013:February 2013.

Debug-CsDataConference [-TargetFqdn <Fqdn>] [-Force] [<CommonParameters>]

The command shown in Example 1 returns diagnostic information for the Conferencing Server installed on the local computer.


In Example 2, diagnostic information is returned for the Conferencing Server installed on the remote computer atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com.

Debug-CsDataConference -TargetFqdn "atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com"

Example 3 returns detailed Conferencing Server diagnostic information for the local computer, but displays this information in an easy-to-read format. To do this, the command first calls the Debug-CsDataConference cmdlet to return the diagnostic information. That information is then piped to the Select-Object cmdlet. The Select-Object cmdlet uses the ExpandProperty parameter to return complete information for the Details property. (By default, only a small portion of the data in the Details property is displayed onscreen.) Finally, the data found in the Details property is piped to the Format-List cmdlet, which displays the data in an easy-to-read format.

Debug-CsDataConference | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Details | Format-List

To return a list of all the role-based access control (RBAC) roles this cmdlet has been assigned to (including any custom RBAC roles you have created), run the following command from the Windows PowerShell command-line interface prompt:

Get-CsAdminRole | Where-Object {$_.Cmdlets –match "Debug-CsDataConference"}

Lync Server Control Panel: The functions carried out by the Debug-CsDataConference cmdlet are not available in the Lync Server Control Panel.


Parameter Required Type Description

Suppresses the display of any nonfatal error message that might occur when running the command.
