Description

The Get-CsComputer cmdlet provides a way to quickly identify computers that are running Skype for Business Server services or server roles. Called without any parameters, the Get-CsComputer cmdlet returns a collection of all the computers that are running Skype for Business Server services or server roles; this collection includes the Identity, pool name, and fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for each computer. Alternatively, you can use optional parameters such as Identity, Filter, or Pool to limit the returned data to a single computer or set of computers.

Examples

Get-CsComputer

In Example 1 the Get-CsComputer cmdlet is used to return information about all the computers that perform service roles within your Skype for Business Server 2015 infrastructure.
