Description

The Test-CsAVEdgeConnectivity cmdlet verifies that a user can connect to the AV Edge Server assigned to a Registrar pool.

Skype for Business Server Control Panel: The functions carried out by the Test-CsAVEdgeConnectivity cmdlet are not available in the Skype for Business Server Control Panel.

Examples

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

Test-CsAVEdgeConnectivity -TargetFqdn "atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com"

The command shown in Example 1 verifies that a preconfigured test user can connect to the A/V Edge server configured for the pool atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com Note that this command will fail if you have not defined at least one health monitoring test user for atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com.

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

$cred = Get-Credential "litwareinc\kenmyer"

Test-CsAVEdgeConnectivity -TargetFqdn "atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com" -UserSipAddress "sip:kenmyer@litwareinc.com" -UserCredential $cred

In Example 2, the Test-CsAVEdgeConnectivity cmdlet verifies that the user with the SIP address sip:kenmyer@litwareinc.com is able to connect to the AV Edge server. To do this, the first command in the example uses the Get-Credential cmdlet to retrieve a Windows PowerShell credentials object for the user litwareinc\kenmyer; note that you supply the password for this account when obtaining this object. After the credentials object has been obtained, the second command uses the Test-CsAVEdgeConnectivity cmdlet to verify that the user can connect to the AV Edge server.

Required Parameters

-TargetFqdn

Fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the pool to be tested.

Type:String
Aliases:t
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015
-UserCredential

User credentials object for the account to be tested. The value passed to UserCredential must be an object reference obtained by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. For example, this code returns a credential object for the user litwareinc\kenmyer and stores that object in a variable named

$x: $x = Get-Credential "litwareinc\kenmyer"

You need to supply the user password when running this command. This parameter is not required if you are conducting the test under the health monitoring configuration settings for the pool.

Type:PSCredential
Aliases:uc
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015

Optional Parameters

-AVEdgeAddress

IP address of the Edge server being tested. Specifying the IP address enables you to test the internal side of the Edge server; in turn, this allows you to verify the connection between the test client and the internal Edge server. Note that the internal side often has multiple IP addresses.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Skype for Business Server 2015

-OutLoggerVariable

When present, detailed output from running the cmdlet will be stored in the specified variable. This variable includes a pair of methods - ToHTML and ToXML - that can then be used to save that output to either an HTML or an XML file.

To store output in a logger variable named $TestOutput use the following syntax:

-OutLoggerVariable TestOutput

Note: Do not use prepend a $ character when specifying the variable name. To save the information stored in the logger variable to an HTML file, use a command similar to this:

$TestOutput.ToHTML() \> C:\Logs\TestOutput.html

To save the information stored in the logger variable to an XML file, use a command similar to this:

$TestOutput.ToXML() \> C:\Logs\TestOutput.xml
