Use the Disable-CsAdForest cmdlet to reverse the forest preparation step.

If you run the Disable-CsAdForest cmdlet in an environment where you also have a previous version of Office Communications Server deployed, the global settings for the previous version will also be deleted.

To use cmdlets to reverse forest preparation

  1. Log on to a computer that is joined to a domain as a member of the DomainAdmins group in the forest root domain.

  2. Open the Communications Server Management Shell console, and then run:

    Copy Code
    Disable-CsAdForest [-Force <$true | $false>] [-GroupDomain <FQDN of the domain in which to create the universal groups>]

    The Force parameter specifies whether to force the execution of the task. If this parameter is set to False (the default), the cmdlet checks to determine whether all domains in the forest have been prepared, and if they are not, terminates execution.

    If you do not specify the GroupDomain parameter, the value defaults to the local domain.
