To create a conferencing room object, first create an Active Directory user account to represent the device. Then, use the Enable-CsMeetingRoom cmdlet to enable that account to function as a conferencing device. If you need to change the properties of an existing conferencing device, use the Set-CsMeetingRoom cmdlet.

These cmdlets 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

Creating a Conferencing Device

  • After you create the Active Directory user account that represents the new conferencing device, enable it by using the Enable-CsMeetingRoom cmdlet. Be sure to include a) the conferencing device identity, b) the registrar pool where the room account will be homed, and c) the SIP address to be assigned to that account. For example:

    Copy Code
    Enable-CsMeetingRoom -Identity "Redmond Conferencing device" -RegistrarPool "" -SipAddress ""

Modifying a Conferencing Device

  • To modify the property values of an existing conferencing device, use the Set-CsMeetingRoom cmdlet. For example, the following command updates the phone number (LineUri) associated with a conferencing device:

    Copy Code
    Set-CsMeetingRoom -Identity "Redmond Conferencing device" -LineUri "tel:+12065551219"
