Switch Parameter

Reports detailed activity to the screen as the cmdlet runs.

Detailed Description

In Office Communications Server 2007 and Office Communications Server 2007 R2, Internet Information Service (IIS) ran under a standard user account. That has the potential to cause problems; for example, if the password for that account expires (which it might, depending on your enterprise password policies) you could lose your Communications Server Web services. That would then require you to diagnose the problem and, eventually, change the password. To help avoid the problem of expiring passwords, Microsoft Communications Server “14” enables you to create a computer account (for a computer that doesn’t actually exist) that can serve as the authentication principal for all the computers in a site that are running IIS.

The Test-CsKerberosAccountAssignment cmdlet provides a way for you to verify that a Kerberos account has been associated with a given site, that this account has been configured correctly, and that the account is working as expected.

Return Types

Set-CsKerberosAccountAssignment does not return any objects or values. Instead, the cmdlet validates existing instances of the Microsoft.Rtc.Management.WriteableConfig.Settings.KerberosAccount.KerberosAccountAssignment object.


-------------------------- Example 1 ------------------------

Copy Code
Test-CsKerberosAccountAssignment -Site Redmond

The command shown in Example 1 verifies that the Kerberos account assigned to the Redmond site is configured correctly and is working as expected.
