Create network intersite policies in Lync Server 2013
Topic Last Modified: 2012-10-19
A network intersite policy defines bandwidth limitations between sites that have direct WAN links between them.
For details, see the Lync Server Management Shell documentation for the following cmdlets:
A network intersite policy is required only if there is a direct cross link between two network sites.
In the example topology North America region, there is a direct link between the Reno and Albuquerque sites. These two sites require an intersite policy that applies an appropriate bandwidth policy profile. The following example applies the 20Mb_Link profile.
To create a network intersite policy
Start the Lync Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2013, and then click Lync Server Management Shell.
Run the New-CsNetworkInterSitePolicy cmdlet to create network intersite policies and apply an appropriate bandwidth policy profile for two sites that have a direct cross link. For example, run:
New-CsNetworkInterSitePolicy -InterNetworkSitePolicyID Reno_Albuquerque -NetworkSiteID1 Reno -NetworkSiteID2 Albuquerque -BWPolicyProfileID 20Mb_Link
Repeat step 2 as needed to create network intersite policies for all network sites pairs that have a direct cross link.
