Test-CsExStorageConnectivity

Verifies that the Skype for Business Server Storage Service is working on a Front End Server. This is done by creating a test email message in the specified Exchange mailbox and then optionally deleting that message at the end of the text. `Test-CsExStorageConnectivity` also verifies that Exchange archiving is working as expected. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2013.

Syntax

Test-CsExStorageConnectivity
    [-SipUri] <String>
    [-Binding <String>]
    [-DeleteItem]

    [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Test-CsExStorageConnectivity cmdlet is used to verify that server-to-server authentication is working between Skype for Business Server and Exchange. To verify server-to-server authentication, the cmdlet logs on to Exchange writes an item to the Conversation History folder in the specified mailbox, and then deletes that item.

The Test-CsExStorageConnectivity cmdlet can also be used to verify that connections can be made to the archiving store on Exchange.

If you receive an "Access Denied" error message when running this cmdlet that typically means that you are not a member of the local group RTC Local User Administrators. You can either be added to that group or to the Active Directory group RTCUniversalUserAdmins (which is a member of the RTC Local User Administrators) in order to get the required permissions to run the Test-CsExStorageConnectivity cmdlet.

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

Examples

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

Test-CsExStorageConnectivity -SipUri "sip:kenmyer@litwareinc.com" -Binding "NetNamedPipe"

The command shown in Example 1 tests to see if the Skype for Business Server Storage Service can connect to the Exchange mailbox for the user sip:kenmyer@litwareinc.com. In this example, NetNamedPipe is used as the WCF binding.

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

Test-CsExStorageConnectivity -SipUri "sip:kenmyer@litwareinc.com" -Binding "NetNamedPipe" -Folder Dumpster

Example 2 verifies that the Skype for Business Server Storage Service can connect to the archiving store on Exchange. (Note that this command will fail if the specified user has not been enabled for Exchange archiving.) In this example, a connection is made to the Dumpster folder: the Recoverable Items purge folder, a folder that stores deleted items and is not visible to end users.
