Delete an archiving configuration in Skype for Business Server 2015

Summary: Learn how to delete an archiving configuration in Skype for Business Server 2015.

You can delete a site configuration or pool configuration, but you cannot delete the global configuration. If you delete the global configuration, it is automatically reset to the default values.

Delete an archiving configuration by using the Control Panel

To delete an archiving configuration by using the Control Panel:

  1. From a user account that is assigned to the CsArchivingAdministrator or CsAdministrator role, log on to any computer in your internal deployment.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Skype for Business Server Control Panel.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Monitoring and Archiving, and then click Archiving Configuration.

  4. In the list of archiving configurations, click the site or pool configuration that you want to delete, click Edit, and then click Delete.

    Note

    You can also click the Global configuration, but choose this option only if you want to reset the Global configuration to the default values.

  5. Click Commit.

Delete an archiving configuration by using Windows PowerShell

You can also delete an archiving configuration by using the Remove-CsArchivingConfiguration cmdlet.

For example, the following command removes the archiving configuration settings applied to the Redmond site. When a policy configured at the site scope is deleted, users previously managed by the site policy will automatically be governed by the global archiving policy instead:

Remove-CsArchivingConfiguration -Identity "site:Redmond"

The following command removes all the archiving configuration settings applied to the service scope:

Get-CsArchivingConfiguration -Filter "site:*" | Remove-CsArchivingConfiguration

The next command removes all the archiving configuration settings where Exchange archiving has been disabled:

Get-CsArchivingConfiguration | Where-Object {$_.EnableExchangeArchiving -eq $False} | Remove-CsArchivingConfiguration

You can also use the Remove-CsArchivingConfiguration cmdlet to reset the global settings to default values. For example, suppose you have enabled IM session archiving at the global level; the following command will reset the value to the default of None, which will disable archiving at the global level:

Remove-CsArchivingConfiguration -Identity global
