To validate addresses located in the location database

  1. Open Communications Server Management Shell.

  2. Run the following cmdlets to configure the Emergency Service Provider connection.

    Copy Code
    $pwd = Read-Host –AsSecureString <password>
    Set-CsLisServiceProvider -ServiceProviderName Provider1 -ValidationServiceUrl <URL provided by provider> -CertFileName <location of certificate provided by provider> -Password $pwd
  3. Run the following cmdlet to validate the addresses in the location database.

    Copy Code
