Disable-CsComputer

Disables a service or server role that has been removed from a computer running Skype for Business Server. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Syntax

Disable-CsComputer
       [-Scorch]
       [-GlobalCatalog <Fqdn>]
       [-Report <String>]
       [-Force]
       [-WhatIf]
       [-Confirm]
       [-GlobalSettingsDomainController <Fqdn>]
       [<CommonParameters>]

Description

Removing a service or server role from a computer does not automatically update the Skype for Business Server topology. Instead, that service or role must be disabled before the changes are fully updated in the topology. The Disable-CsComputer cmdlet provides a way for administrators to disable any services or server roles that have been removed from the local computer.

Unless you use the Scorch parameter, the Disable-CsComputer cmdlet does not uninstall the Skype for Business Server software; instead, it simply stops the computer from functioning in its previously assigned role.

You must be a local administrator and a member of the domain in order to run the Disable-CsComputer cmdlet locally.

Examples

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

Disable-CsComputer

The command shown in Example 1 disables the local computer.

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

Disable-CsComputer -Report C:\Logs\Disable.html

The command shown in Examples 2 also disables the local computer. In addition to disabling the computer, however, this command records information about the success (or failure) of that task in the file C:\Logs\Disable.html. This log file is generated by adding the Report parameter followed by the path to the log file where you want the information recorded.
