Set-CsPersistentChatActiveServer

Manages the list of active Persistent Chat servers. An active server is Persistent Chat server (in a specified Persistent Chat service pool) that is fully operational and can accept new client connections. Servers in the pool that have not been marked as active servers might be operational, but are currently unable to accept new client connections. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2013.

Description

The Set-CsPersistentChatActiveServer cmdlet allows administrators to essentially enable or disable the Persistent Chat service on one or more servers in a Persistent Chat pool. Servers that appear on the active servers list are able to accept new client connections. Servers that do not appear on the list are not able to accept new client connections. (However, the server will continue to any client connections that were made before the server was removed from the list.) To enable the Persistent Chat service on a Persistent Chat server, add that server to the active server list. To disable the service, remove the server from the active server list.

To enable/disable the Persistent Chat service on all the servers in a pool, use the Set-CsPersistentChatState cmdlet.

Examples

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

Set-CsPersistentChatActiveServer -Identity "PChatServerCollection" -ActiveServers @{Add="atl-gc-001.litwareinc.com"}

The command shown in Example 1 adds the server atl-gc-001.litwareinc.com to the collection of active Persistent Chat Servers.

First, determine the identity of your server collection by running the Get-CsService cmdlet, which will return the identity of your Persistent Chat collection :

Get-CsService -PersistentChatServer

The cmdlet will return something similar to

Identity : PersistentChatServer:client.vdomain.com

To add the server to the Then run the following cmdlet to add the server, using the :

Set-CsPersistentChatActiveServer -Identity "PChatServerCollection" -ActiveServers @{Add="atl-gc-001.litwareinc.com"}

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

Set-CsPersistentChatActiveServer -Identity "PChatServerCollection" -ActiveServers @{Remove="atl-gc-001.litwareinc.com"}

Example 2 removes the server atl-gc-001.litwareinc.com from the collection of active Persistent Chat servers.

-------------------------- Example 3 --------------------------

Set-CsPersistentChatActiveServer -Identity "PChatServerCollection" -ActiveServers $Null

The command shown in Example 3 removes all the active Persistent Chat servers. Removing all the active servers is typically done in a failback or failover scenario.
