Detailed Description

Reporting configuration settings are used to specify the home page for the Lync Server Monitoring Reports; if you are not using Monitoring Reports then there is no reason for you to modify the reporting configuration settings.

If you do not know the URL for the Monitoring Reports home page you can determine that URL by doing the following:

  1. Open the SQL Server Reporting Services Configuration Manager for the SQL Server instance that contains your monitoring database.

  2. In the Configuration Manager, click Report Manager URL and then click the URL for your Monitoring Reports. If you see two URLs, click the one that uses the https protocol.

  3. In SQL Server Reporting Services, click LyncServerReports.

  4. On the LyncServerReports page, click Reports Home Page. That will take you to the home page for the Monitoring Reports. You can then copy the URL and use that URL in conjunction with the CsReportingConfiguration cmdlets.

To return a list of all the role-based access control (RBAC) roles this cmdlet has been assigned to (including any custom RBAC roles you have created yourself), run the following command from the Windows PowerShell command-line interface prompt:

Get-CsAdminRole | Where-Object {$_.Cmdlets –match "New-CsReportingConfiguration"}

Lync Server Control Panel: The functions carried out by the New-CsReportingConfiguration cmdlet are not available in the Lync Server Control Panel.
