Remove-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile

Removes a network bandwidth policy profile. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Syntax

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

Description

As part of call admission control (CAC), a bandwidth policy is used to define bandwidth limitations for certain modalities. (In Skype for Business Server, only audio and video modalities can be assigned bandwidth limitations.) This cmdlet removes a container profile for these policies.

IMPORTANT: If a profile has been assigned to a site (by using the New-CsNetworkSite cmdlet or the Set-CsNetworkSite cmdlet), to an inter-site policy (by using the New-CsNetworkInterSitePolicy cmdlet or the Set-CsNetworkInterSitePolicy cmdlet), or to a network region link (by using the New-CsNetworkRegionLink cmdlet or the Set-CsNetworkRegionLink cmdlet) it cannot be removed. You will receive an error if you try to remove the profile by calling the Remove-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile cmdlet. You must first remove the profile from all sites, inter-site policies and network region links, and then you can remove the profile.

Examples

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

Remove-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile -Identity LowBWProfile

This example removes the bandwidth policy profile with the Identity LowBWProfile. Because identities must be unique this will remove, at most, one profile.

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

Get-CsNetworkSite | Where-Object {$_.BWPolicyProfileID -eq "LowBWProfile"} | Set-CsNetworkSite -BWPolicyProfileID $null

Remove-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile -Identity LowBWProfile

Example 2 removes all references to the bandwidth policy profile with the Identity LowBWProfile from all sites to which it has been assigned and then removes that profile. The first line of this example begins with a call to the Get-CsNetworkSite cmdlet to retrieve all sites configured for call admission control (CAC). This collection of sites is then piped to the Where-Object cmdlet, which looks for only those sites with a BWPolicyProfileID that is equal to (-eq) LowBWProfile. This narrowed-down collection, containing only sites with a BWPolicyProfileID value of LowBWProfile, is piped to the Set-CSNetworkSite cmdlet, which modifies each of these sites to change the BWPolicyProfileID to Null ($null). What we've just done is to find all sites with a BWPolicyProfileID of LowBWProfile and set that value to Null. At this point there are no sites using the LowBWProfile profile. We now call the Remove-CsNetworkBandwidthPolicyProfile cmdlet on the profile LowBWProfile to remove the profile, knowing that the profile is not in use by any sites.

To ensure that the profile is not in use anywhere in the network configuration, perform the same steps in Line 1 against inter-site policies and network region links.
