Removes an existing bandwidth policy service configuration.


Remove-CsBandwidthPolicyServiceConfiguration -Identity <XdsIdentity> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]


Parameter Required Type Description




The unique identifier of the configuration you want to remove. This identifier will consist of the scope (for the global configuration) or the scope and name (for a site-level configuration, such as site:Redmond).




Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command.




Describes what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing the command.

Detailed Description

Call admission control (CAC) is a way of managing bandwidth for non-data transmissions. In Microsoft Communications Server 2010, this means managing the bandwidth available for audio and video transmissions. Within the Communications Server implementation of CAC, regions, sites, and subnets are defined within a network along with the relationships and links between those entities in order to place bandwidth constraints between them. The bandwidth policy service enables the decision as to whether sufficient bandwidth exists for a call to be completed. This cmdlet removes a bandwidth policy service defined at the site level. You can also use the cmdlet to “remove” the global bandwidth policy service; however, the global service will not actually be removed, it will simply be reset to its default values.

Return Types

This cmdlet does not return a value. It removes an object of type Microsoft.Rtc.Management.WritableConfig.Settings.BandwidthPolicyServiceConfiguration.BandwidthPolicyServiceConfiguration.


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

Copy Code
Remove-CsBandwidthPolicyServiceConfiguration -Identity site:Redmond

This example removes the bandwidth policy service configuration defined for the Redmond site (-Identity site:Redmond).

-------------------------- Example 2 --------------------------

Copy Code
Get-CsBandwidthPolicyServiceConfiguration | Where-Object {$_.EnableLogging -eq $False} | Remove-CsBandwidthPolicyServiceConfiguration

Example 2 removes all bandwidth policy service configurations where logging is disabled. To accomplish this, the example begins with a call to Get-CsBandwidthPolicyServiceConfiguration. This will return a collection of all bandwidth policy service configurations in the Communications Server deployment. This collection is then piped to the Where-Object cmdlet, which narrows the collection down to only those configurations where the EnableLogging property is equal to (-eq) False ($False). This leaves us with a collection of configurations that have logging disabled. This collection is then piped to Remove-CsBandwidthPolicyServiceConfiguration, which removes every item in the collection.
