Every region within a call admission control (CAC) configuration must have some way to access every other region. While region links set bandwidth limitations on the connections between regions and also represent the physical links, a route determines which linked path the connection will traverse from one region to another. Use the following procedures to view existing network region routes in Lync Server 2013 Control Panel or Lync Server 2013 Management Shell. For details about creating or modifying network region routes, see Creating or Modifying Network Region Routes.

To view network region route information in Lync Server Control Panel

  1. From a user account that is a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group (or has equivalent user rights), or is assigned to the CsAdministrator role, log on to any computer in your internal deployment.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server Administrative Tools.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Network Configuration and then click Region Route.

  4. On the Region Route page, click the region route that you want to view.

    You can only view one region route at a time.
  5. On the Edit menu, click Show details.

Viewing Network Region Route Information by Using Windows PowerShell Cmdlets

Network region route information can be viewed by using Windows PowerShell and the Get-CsNetworkInterRegionRoute cmdlet. This cmdlet can be run either from the Lync Server 2013 Management Shell or from a remote session of Windows PowerShell. For details about using remote Windows PowerShell to connect to Lync Server, see the Lync Server Windows PowerShell blog article "Quick Start: Managing Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Using Remote PowerShell" at

To view network region route information

  • To view information about all your network region routes, type the following command in the Lync Server Management Shell and then press ENTER:

    Copy Code

    That will return information similar to this:

    Copy Code
    Identity				: TransAmericaRoute
    NetworkRegionLinks		: {NorthwestToNortheast}
