Set-CsSite

Modifies the properties for any of your Skype for Business Server sites. Sites represent a collection of Skype for Business Server pools and are typically designed around geographic regions. Skype for Business Server includes two types of sites: data center sites and remote sites (branch office). This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Description

Lync Server 2010 introduced a new concept to the topology: sites. Sites (which should not be confused with Active Directory sites or Exchange sites) are a collection of Skype for Business Server pools and servers that are typically organized according to geography and network bandwidth. For example, if all your computers in Redmond are located on the same local area network with high-speed, low-latency connections, you might designate a Redmond site that encompasses those computers. If your computers in Dublin are located on their own local area network, and share high-speed, low-latency connections, then you might create a separate Dublin site as well. Sites also play a key role in Skype for Business Server management: many policies and settings can be configured at the site scope, making it easy to do such things as apply one set of dial plans to users in Redmond and a different set of dial plans to users in Dublin.

Sites are created by using Topology Builder and any changes to the site infrastructure (for example, adding new pools) must also be made by using Topology Builder. However, you can use the Set-CsSite cmdlet to change the display name, the description and the federation route of any site in your organization.

Examples

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

Set-CsSite -Identity Redmond -Description "Full-time employees in Redmond, WA."

The command shown in Example 1 modifies the Description property for the Redmond site (-Identity Redmond).

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

Set-CsSite -Identity Redmond -DisplayName "US Headquarters"

Example 2 changes the display name for the Redmond site to "US Headquarters".

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

Get-CsSite | Where-Object {$_.Description -eq $Null} | ForEach-Object {Set-CsSite $_.Identity -Description "Litwareinc.com"}

The command shown in Example 3 locates all the sites that do not have a Description and then assigns each of those sites the generic description "Litwareinc.com." To do this, the command first calls the Get-CsSite cmdlet without any parameters in order to return a collection of all the Skype for Business Server sites. The returned collection is then piped to the Where-Object cmdlet, which picks out only those sites where the Description property is equal to (-eq) a null value ($Null). These sites are then piped to the ForEach-Object cmdlet. This cmdlet takes each item in the collection and uses the Set-CsSite cmdlet to modify the value of the Description property.
