Microsoft Lync Server 2010 communications software includes a standard web service interface that you can use to connect the Location Information Server to Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) applications that match MAC addresses with port and switch information.

If a SNMP application is installed, and the Location Information Server fails to find a match in the Location database the Location Information Server will automatically query the application using the MAC address provided by the client. The Location Information Server will then use the port and switch information returned by the SNMP application to requery the Location database.

For details, see the Lync Server Management Shell documentation for the following cmdlet:

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

  2. Run the following cmdlet to configure the URL for the SNMP application.

    Copy Code
    Set-CsWebServiceConfiguration -MACResolverUrl "<SNMP application url>"
