Microsoft Lync Server 2010 introduces role-based access control (RBAC). With RBAC, administrative privilege is granted by assigning users to pre-defined administrative roles. Lync Server 2010 includes 11 predefined roles that cover many common administrative tasks. You can use RBAC to follow the principle of "least privilege," in which users are given only the administrative abilities that their jobs require.

Each role is associated with a specific list of Lync Server Management Shell cmdlets that users in that role are allowed to run.
