Lync Server 2013 includes a standard web service interface that you can use to connect the Location Information service to Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) applications that match MAC addresses with port and switch information.

If an SNMP application is installed and the Location Information service fails to find a match in the location database, the Location Information service automatically queries the application by using the MAC address provided by the client. The Location Information service then uses the port and switch information returned by the SNMP application to query the location database again.

For details, see Set-CsWebServiceConfiguration.

MAC addresses are not available on computers running Windows 8.

To configure the SNMP application URL

  1. Start the Lync Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2013, 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>"
