Client version policies are used to apply a set of client versioning rules globally or to a particular site, pool, or group of users. You can view the client version policies that have been configured in your Lync Server 2013 environment from Lync Server 2013 Control Panel or Lync Server 2013 Management Shell.

To view client version policies by using Lync Server Control Panel

  1. From a user account that is assigned to the CsUserAdministrator role or 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 Clients, and then click the Client Version Policy navigation button.

  4. If you want to view the rules for a client version policy, on the Client Version Policy page, double-click the policy you want to view.

Viewing Client Version Policies by Using Windows PowerShell Cmdlets

You can view client version policies by using the Get-CsClientVersionPolicy 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
