Test-CsMcxP2PIM

Tests the ability of a pair of users to exchange instant messages by using the Skype for Business Server Mobility Service. The Mobility Service enables users of mobile phones such as iPhones and Windows Phones to do such things as exchange instant messages and presence information; store and retrieve voice mail internally instead of with their wireless provider; and take advantage of Skype for Business Server capabilities such as Call via Work and dial-out conferencing. This cmdlet was introduced in the cumulative update for Lync Server 2010: November 2011.

Description

Skype for Business Server Mobility Service extends many of the capabilities of Skype for Business Server to mobile devices such as Apple iPhones, Windows Phone, Android phones, and Nokia phones. Among other things, users can use these phones to exchange instant message and presence information, and to receive notifications of new voice mails. Thanks to the push notification service (Apple Push Notification Service and Microsoft Push Notification Service), users with iPhones or Windows Phones can receive these notifications even if Skype for Business is running in the background. The Mobility Service also provides the opportunity for organizations to enable Call via Work. With Call via Work, users can make a call from their mobile phone and make it appear as though the call originated from their work phone; for example, Caller ID systems will display the user's work number instead of his or her mobile phone number.

The Test-CsMcxP2PIM cmdlet is used to determine whether or not a pair of users is able to exchange instant messages by using the Mobility Service. Note that running this cmdlet does not require the use of mobile phones nor does it actually send any instant messages. Instead, the cmdlet verifies that the two users are able to log on to Skype for Business Server and that the Mobility Service is able to make the connections required to exchange instant messages between the two users.

Examples

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

$credential1 = Get-Credential "litwareinc\kenmyer"

$credential2 = Get-Credential "litwareinc\pilar"

Test-CsMcxP2PIM -TargetFqdn "atl-cs-001.litwareinc.com" -Authentication Negotiate -SenderSipAddres "sip:kenmyer@litwareinc.com" -SenderCredential $credential1 -ReceiverSipAddress "sip:packerman@litwareinc.com" -ReceiverCredential $credential2

The commands shown in Example 1 test to see whether or not a pair of users - Ken Myer and Pilar Ackerman - are able to exchange instant messages by using the Mobility Service. To do this, the first two commands in the example use the Get-Credential cmdlet to create credentials objects for the two users; the credentials for Ken Myer are stored in a variable named $credential1 and the credentials for Pilar Ackerman are stored in a variable named $credential2.

After the credential objects have been created, the final command calls the Test-CsMcxP2PIM cmdlet, making sure to specify the target Registrar pool (atl-cs-001.litwareinc,com), the authentication type (Negotiate), and the SIP addresses and credentials of the two users.

Required Parameters

-Authentication

Allowed values are: TrustedServer; Negotiate; ClientCertificate; and LiveID.

Type:AuthenticationMechanism

-ReceiverCredential

User credentials object for the first of the two user accounts to be tested. The value passed to ReceiverCredential should be an object reference obtained by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. For example, this code returns a credentials object for the user litwareinc\pilar and stores that object in a variable named $y:

$y = Get-Credential "litwareinc\pilar"

You need to supply the user password when running this command.

Type:PSCredential
Aliases:rc

Applies to:Lync Server 2013, Skype for Business Server 2015
-ReceiverSipAddress

SIP address for the first of the two user accounts to be tested. For example:

-ReceiverSipAddress "sip:pilar@litwareinc.com"

The ReceiverSipAddress parameter must reference the same user account as the ReceiverCredential parameter.

-SenderCredential

User credentials object for the second of the two user accounts to be tested. The value passed to SenderCredential should be an object reference obtained by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. For example, this code returns a credentials object for the user litwareinc\kenmyer and stores that object in a variable named $x:

$x = Get-Credential "litwareinc\kenmyer"

-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

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