Syntax

Enable-CsReplica
      [-GlobalCatalog <Fqdn>]
      [-Report <String>]

Description

When a service or server role is installed on a computer, that computer needs to be added to the replication path; doing so enables the computer to receive the topology and configuration files from the Central Management store. The Enable-CsReplica cmdlet provides a way for you to manually add a computer to the replication path. As a general rule, you will not need to manually add a computer to the replication path. Instead, this will automatically take place when you install Skype for Business Server 2015 on a computer.
