Retrieves information about one or more network subnets.


Get-CsNetworkSubnet [-Identity <XdsGlobalRelativeIdentity>] [-LocalStore <SwitchParameter>]
Get-CsNetworkSubnet [-Filter <String>] [-LocalStore <SwitchParameter>]


Parameter Required Type Description




The unique subnet ID of the subnet you want to retrieve. This value will be an IP address (such as




Use this parameter to perform a wildcard search of all subnets based on Identity. For example, the Filter value 172.11.* will retrieve all subnets with an Identity beginning with 172.11. (such as,, etc.).




Retrieves the network subnet information from the local replica of the Central Management store, rather than the Central Management store itself.

Detailed Description

Each subnet must be associated with a network site for the purposes of determining the geographic location of the host belonging to this subnet. Use this cmdlet to retrieve information about the subnet, including the Identity (the subnet ID), the number of mask bits, the associated network site, and the description of the subnet.

Who can run this cmdlet: By default, members of the following groups are authorized to run the Get-CsNetworkSubnet cmdlet locally: RTCUniversalUserAdmins, RTCUniversalServerAdmins. 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 yourself), run the following command from the Windows PowerShell prompt:

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

Input Types


Return Types

Returns one or more objects of type Microsoft.Rtc.Management.WritableConfig.Settings.NetworkConfiguration.SubnetType.


-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

Copy Code

This example retrieves all subnets within the Microsoft Lync Server 2010 deployment.

-------------------------- Example 2 --------------------------

Copy Code
Get-CsNetworkSubnet -Identity

This example retrieves all information about the subnet with the Identity (the Subnet ID)

-------------------------- Example 3 --------------------------

Copy Code
Get-CsNetworkSubnet -Filter 172.11.*

This example retrieves all subnets with identities that begin with 172.11..

-------------------------- Example 4 --------------------------

Copy Code
Get-CsNetworkSubnet | Where-Object {$_.NetworkSiteID -eq "Vancouver"}

Example 4 retrieves all subnets associated with the Vancouver site. We first call Get-CsNetworkSubnet cmdlet with no parameters, which, as we saw in Example 2, retrieves all defined subnets. We then pipe this collection of subnets to the Where-Object cmdlet. Where-Object takes that collection and narrows it down to only those subnets with a NetworkSiteID equal to (-eq) Vancouver.
