Detailed Description

Import-CsLegacyConferenceDirectory is used, in conjunction with the Merge-CsLegacyTopology cmdlet, to enable organizations to migrate from a previous version of Office Communications Server (either Office Communications Server 2007 or Office Communications Server 2007 R2) to Communications Server 2010. Import-CsLegacyConfiguration is used to migrate conferencing directories from the older version of Communications Server to the new version.

Before you can run Import-CsLegacyConferenceDirectory you must first install WMI Backcompat; this application is installed by running the OCSWMIBC.msi. After installing WMI Backcompat, you should next run Merge-CsLegacyTopology. After you have called Merge-CsLegacyTopology you can then call Import-CsLegacyConferenceDirectory. This cmdlet will use WMI to read "legacy" data from the previous version of Office Communications Server; it will then take that data and create corresponding objects in Microsoft Communications Server: for each conferencing directory found in your installation of Office Communications Server a corresponding directory will be created in your new installation of Microsoft Communications Server.

Return Types

Import-CsLegacyConferenceDirectory does not return any objects or values.
