Enable-CsComputer

Enables new or newly-updated services or server roles on a computer running Skype for Business Server. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Syntax

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

Description

Installing the required software does not automatically cause a computer to adopt a new service role; instead, that computer must be enabled before it actually begins to function in its new role. The Enable-CsComputer cmdlet provides a way for administrators to enable newly updated services or server roles on the local computer.

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

Examples

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

Enable-CsComputer

The command shown in Example 1 activates any new Skype for Business Server services or server roles that have been installed on the local computer.

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

Enable-CsComputer -Verbose

Example 2 also activates any new Skype for Business Server services or server roles that have been installed on the local computer. In this case, however, the addition of the Verbose parameter ensures that a step-by-step account of the tasks being carried out by the Enable-CsComputer cmdlet will be reported on the screen.
