Configuring Conferencing Settings



Modify the Default Conferencing User Experience




  • To modify the global conferencing policy



To modify the global policy, use the Set-CsConferencingPolicy cmdlet and set the Identity to global :



Set-CsConferencingPolicy –Identity global -AllowAnonymousParticipantsInMeetings $False -EnableDialInConferencing $False



Note that you can also modify the global policy by leaving out the Identity parameter altogether:



Set-CsConferencingPolicy -AllowAnonymousParticipantsInMeetings $False -EnableDialInConferencing $False




Create or Modify Conferencing User Experience for a Site or Group of Users




  • To create a new user or site conferencing policy



To create a per-site conferencing policy, use the site: prefix and the name of the site as the Identity:



New-CsConferencingPolicy –Identity site:Redmond -AllowAnonymousParticipantsInMeetings $False -EnableDialInConferencing $False



To create a per-user conferencing policy, simply use a unique name for the policy Identity:



New-CsConferencingPolicy –Identity "RedmondConferencingPolicy" -AllowAnonymousParticipantsInMeetings $False -EnableDialInConferencing $False





  • To modify an existing user or site policy



Use the Set-CsConferencingPolicy cmdlet to modify a per-user or per-site policy:



Set-CsConferencingPolicy –Identity site:Redmond -AllowAnonymousParticipantsInMeetings $True -EnableDialInConferencing $True



Be sure to specify a policy Identity. If you leave off the Identity Set-CsConferencingPolicy will modify the global policy instead.



To make the same modification to all your conferencing policies (including the global policy), use a command similar to this one:



Get-CsConferencingPolicy | Set-CsConferencingPolicy -AllowAnonymousParticipantsInMeetings $True



This command modifies only your per-user conferencing policies:



Get-CsConferencingPolicy –Filter "tag:*" | Set-CsConferencingPolicy -AllowAnonymousParticipantsInMeetings $True




Delete a Conferencing Policy for a Site or Group of Users




  • To delete a user or site conferencing policy



To delete a per-user or per-site policy, using a command similar to this:



Remove-CsConferencingPolicy –Identity site:Redmond



If you try to remove a per-user policy that is currently assigned to one or more users you will be prompted to first unassign the policy from each user and then delete the policy. (You can remove a policy without unassigning it, but, from then on, any time you call a user management cmdlet you will receive warnings about policies that can no longer be found.) To unassign a per-user policy and then remove that policy use commands similar to these:



Get-CsUser -Filter {ConferencingPolicy -eq "RedmondConferencingPolicy"} | Grant-CsConferencingPolicy -PolicyName $Null



Remove-CsConferencingPolicy –Identity "RedmondConferencingPolicy"

Configuring the Meeting Join Experience



Modify the Default Meeting Join Experience




  • To modify the default meeting join settings



To modify the default meeting join settings use the Set-CsMeetingConfiguration cmdlet and set the Identity to global :



Set-CsMeetingConfiguration -Identity global -DesignateAsPresenter Everyone



Alternatively, you can omit the Identity altogether:



Set-CsMeetingConfiguration -DesignateAsPresenter Everyone



If you leave off the Identity, Set-CsMeetingConfiguration will automatically modify the global settings.




Create or Modify Meeting Join Settings for a Site or Pool




  • To create new meeting join settings



To create new meeting configuration settings for a site, use a command similar to this:



New-CsMeetingConfiguration -Identity site:Redmond -DesignateAsPresenter Everyone



To create new meeting configuration settings for a pool, set the Identity parameter to the service location for the User Server used in that pool:



New-CsMeetingConfiguration -Identity "service:UserServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com" -DesignateAsPresenter Everyone





  • To modify an existing site or pool meeting join configuration



To modify an existing collection of meeting configuration settings, use the Set-CsMeetingConfiguration cmdlet:



Set-CsMeetingConfiguration -Identity site:Redmond -DesignateAsPresenter None



When calling Set-CsMeetingConfiguration, be sure to include the Identity for the meeting configuration settings to be modified. If you do not, Set-CsMeetingConfiguration will automatically modify the global settings instead.




Delete Meeting Join Settings for a Site or Pool




  • To delete meeting join settings for a site or pool



To remove the meeting configuration settings for a site, use a command similar to this:



Remove-CsMeetingConfiguration -Identity site:Redmond



To remove the meeting configuration settings for a pool, use a command similar to this one, which specifies the identity of the User Server in the pool:



Remove-CsMeetingConfiguration -Identity "service:UserServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com"
