Client version configuration settings are used to turn client version control on or off. The global client version configuration installs with Lync Server 2013 and is used to enable or disable client version control for the entire server deployment. When the Global configuration is enabled, any client version policies you have in place will take effect when users attempt to log on. You can view client version configuration settings from Lync Server 2013 Control Panel or Lync Server 2013 Management Shell.

Because anonymous users are not associated with a user, site, or service, anonymous users are affected by global-level policies only.

To view client version configuration settings 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 Configuration navigation button.

  4. Double-click the name of the client version configuration you want to view.

Viewing Client Version Configuration Settings by Using Windows PowerShell Cmdlets

You can view client version configuration settings by using the Get-CsClientVersionConfiguration 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
