Description

Active Directory Domain Services uses service control points (SCP) to help computers locate services. For example, when you install Skype for Business Server, a service control point is created that provides location information for the Central Management store used to maintain Skype for Business Server data. Computers that need access to the database connect to Active Directory and use the information contained in the SCP to help them locate the correct computer and the correct instance of SQL Server.

As noted, when you install Skype for Business Server an SCP that for the Central Management store is automatically created for you. If you need to move that database to another computer or if you need to move that database to a different instance of SQL Server, then you will need to update the corresponding service control point. That's a task that can be carried out by using the Set-CsConfigurationStoreLocation cmdlet. When you run it, the Set-CsConfigurationStoreLocation cmdlet searches Active Directory for the computer specified by the SqlServer parameter. The cmdlet then sets the store location to the FQDN of that computer.

Examples

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

Set-CsConfigurationStoreLocation -SqlServerFqdn atl-sql-001.litwareinc.com -SqlInstanceName Rtc

The command shown in Example 1 sets the Active Directory service control point for the Skype for Business Server Central Management store. In this example, the SCP points to the computer atl-sql-001.litwareinc.com and to the SQL Server instance Rtc.

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

Set-CsConfigurationStoreLocation -SqlServerFqdn atl-sql-001.litwareinc.com -SqlInstanceName Rtc -Report C:\Logs\Store_Location.html

The command shown in Example 2 is a variation of the command shown in Example 1. This command also sets the Active Directory SCP for the Skype for Business Server Central Management store. In addition, information regarding the success (or failure) of this operation is logged to the file C:\Logs\Store_Location.html. This log is generated by including the Report parameter followed by the full path to the log file.
