Microsoft Lync Server 2010 ships with almost 550 cmdlets specifically designed to allow administrators to manage Lync Server 2010 from the command line. You access the cmdlets from the Lync Server Management Shell. You can retrieve help on a cmdlet directly from the command line by typing a command similar to the following:
Get-Help New-CsVoicePolicy -Full
