When you remove servers, you need to move Exchange Unified Messaging (UM) contact objects. This is true for situations where you are removing the Front End Server or the Front End pool that hosts the contacts. If you are going to remove the pool that the contacts are hosted on, you need to move the contacts to another pool.

To move the Exchange UM contacts

  1. Log on to the computer where Lync Server Management Shell is installed as a member of the Domain Admins group or the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group.

  2. Start the Lync Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Lync Server Management Shell.

  3. To move the Exchange UM contacts from the pool or server that you want to remove to a different pool or server, type:

    Copy Code
    Get-CsExUmContact -Filter {RegistrarPool -eq "<CurrentLyncServerPoolFqdn>"} | Move-CsExUmContact -Target -<DestinationLyncServerPoolFqdn>

    Where <CurrentLyncServerPoolFqdn> is the Lync Server 2010 pool or server where the contacts are hosted currently, and <DestinationLyncServerPoolFqdn> is the pool or server where you want to move the contacts.
