Test-CsSetupPermission

Verifies that the required permissions needed to install Skype for Business Server or one of its components have been configured on the specified Active Directory container. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Syntax

Test-CsSetupPermission
    -ComputerOU <String>
    [-Domain <Fqdn>]
    [-DomainController <Fqdn>]
    [-GlobalCatalog <Fqdn>]
    [-Report <String>]
    [-Verbose]
    [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The domain preparation that takes place when you install Skype for Business Server does not automatically add the permissions that enable members of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group to run the Enable-CsTopology cmdlet. That means that, by default, you must be a domain administrator in order to enable a topology. To give members of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group the right to enable a topology, you must run the Grant-CsSetupPermissions cmdlet. In addition, you will need to run this cmdlet against each Active Directory container that houses computers running Skype for Business Server.

The Test-CsSetupPermission cmdlet enables you to determine whether or not the requisite permissions have been added to a given Active Directory container (that is, a container hosting computers running Skype for Business Server). The Test-CsSetupPermission cmdlet returns True if the correct permissions have been applied, and returns False if the correct permissions have not been applied. If the cmdlet returns False, you will need to run the Grant-CsSetupPermission cmdlet in order to make the necessary changes to the Active Directory container.
