Test-CsPhoneBootstrap

Verifies that a user can log on to Skype for Business Server using a Phone Edition-compatible device. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Description

In order to connect to Skype for Business Server, Phone Edition-compatible devices need to use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to retrieve the address of a Skype for Business Server Registrar; these devices must also provide a valid phone number and associated personal identification number (PIN) in order to be authenticated by the system. (This process is known as "bootstrapping".) The Test-CsPhoneBootstrap cmdlet enables administrators to verify that a given user -- using the phone number and PIN assigned to him or her -- is able to log on to the system from a Phone Edition-compatible device. (No device is actually needed in order to run the test.)

In order for the Test-CsPhoneBootstrap cmdlet to make its check, the Registrar pool that hosts the user account being tested must be discoverable using DHCP. To determine whether a Registrar is discoverable in this manner, use the Get-CsRegistrarConfiguration cmdlet and check the value of the EnableDHCPServer property. If this property is set to False, you will need to use the Set-CsRegistrarConfiguration cmdlet to set the property value to True and make the Registrar discoverable using DHCP. This can also be done by using Enterprise DHCP Server and configuring the Skype for Business Server -specific options.

Examples

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

Test-CsPhoneBootstrap -PhoneOrExtension "+14255551219" -Pin "0712"

The command shown in Example 1 verifies that the user with the specified phone number and PIN can connect to Skype for Business Server using a Phone Edition-compatible device. In order to run the test, the user's phone number (+14255551219) and the user's PIN (0712) must be supplied.

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

Test-CsPhoneBootstrap -PhoneOrExtension "+14255551219" -Pin "0712" -UserSipAddress "sip:kenmyer@litwareinc.com"

Example 2 verifies whether or not the user with the specified phone number and PIN can connect to Skype for Business Server using a Phone Edition-compatible device. In this example, the UserSipAddress parameter is included as an additional check: the test will fail if the user with the SIP address is not the same as the user with the specified phone number and PIN.

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
