Disable-CsAdDomain

Undoes the domain preparation tasks carried out by the Enable-CsAdDomain cmdlet. This cmdlet is typically used only if you are uninstalling Skype for Business Server from a domain. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

       [-GlobalSettingsDomainController <Fqdn>]

Description

When you install Skype for Business Server in a domain, that domain must be correctly prepared, a process that includes extending the Active Directory schema to allow for the addition of attributes specific to Skype for Business Server as well as assigning the required Access Control Entries to the universal groups needed for managing and operating Skype for Business Server.

If you later decide to uninstall Skype for Business Server (or if you encounter problems during the setup process), you might need to roll back these domain-level changes. The Disable-CsAdDomain cmdlet provides a way for you to undo all the domain-level modifications made by the Enable-CsAdDomain cmdlet.

You must be a domain administrator in order to run the Disable-CsAdDomain cmdlet locally.

Historical Note: The tasks carried out by Disable-CsAdDomain are similar to the tasks carried out by the following Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 command: Lcscmd.exe /domain /action:DomainUnprep

Examples

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

Disable-CsAdDomain

The command shown in Example 1 rolls back the domain preparation process in the local domain. Because the Force parameter is not included, the command will fail if the Disable-CsAdDomain cmdlet determines that at least one Front End Server, A/V Conferencing Server, or Web Services server is still active in the domain.

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

Disable-CsAdDomain -Domain asia.litwareinc.com

Example 2 rolls back the domain preparation process for the domain asia.litwareinc.com.

-------------------------- Example 3 --------------------------

Disable-CsAdDomain -Force

The command shown in Example 3 uses the Force parameter to force the rollback of the domain preparation process in the local domain. This means that rollback will occur even if the Disable-CsAdDomain cmdlet determines that at least one Front End Server, A/V Conferencing Server, or Web Services server is still active in the domain.
