Remove-CsConferenceDirectory

Removes an existing conference directory. Conference directories are used to help dial-in conferencing users locate conference information. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Syntax

Remove-CsConferenceDirectory
      [-Identity] <XdsGlobalRelativeIdentity>
      [-Force]
      [-WhatIf]
      [-Confirm]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

When you create a dial-in conferencing Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) those URIs are assigned unique SIP addresses. However, SIP addresses are difficult to translate to devices that are not SIP-aware; for example, a public switched telephone network (PSTN) telephone can't translate a SIP address. Because of that, Skype for Business Server uses conference directories as a way to help these devices locate, and connect to, dial-in conferences. This is done by creating a SIP conference directory that is associated with each dial-in conferencing URI and is identified by an integer value rather than a SIP URI. PSTN telephones and other devices can then use these numbers (rather than a SIP URI) when connecting to conferences; the directory number is included in the PSTN conference identification users enter when connecting to a dial-in conference.

Conference directories are created by using the New-CsConferenceDirectory cmdlet. Occasionally, you might need to delete one or more of these directories; for example, you might need to decommission the pool where the directories were hosted. Conference directories can be removed by calling the Remove-CsConferenceDirectory cmdlet. Note that if you need to move a directory from one pool to another, you can do so by calling the Move-CsConferenceDirectory cmdlet.

Examples

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

Remove-CsConferenceDirectory -Identity 2

The command shown in Example 1 deletes the conference directory with the Identity 2.

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

Get-CsConferenceDirectory | Where-Object {$_.ServiceID -match "UserServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com"} | Remove-CsConferenceDirectory

Example 2 deletes all the conference directories found on the service UserServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com. To do this, the command first calls the Get-CsConferenceDirectory cmdlet without any parameters; that returns a collection of all the conference directories currently in use in the organization. This collection is then piped to the Where-Object cmdlet, which picks out only those directories hosted on the service UserServer:atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com. In turn, that filtered collection is piped to and deleted by, the Remove-CsConferenceDirectory cmdlet.
