Test webpage and access numbers

To verify that the Dial-in Conferencing Settings webpage and the dial-in access numbers work correctly, you need to do the following:

  • Test the Dial-in Conferencing Settings webpage by signing in to the simple URL.

  • Test that access numbers work correctly for a specific pool by running the script later in this topic. This script simulates calls to access numbers. You need the SIP address and credentials of one unified communications (UC) client that is hosted on the specific pool to use this script.

To test access numbers for a specific pool

  1. Log on to the computer as a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group, or as a member of the Cs-ServerAdministrator or CsAdministrator role.

  2. Start the Skype for Business Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Skype for Business 2015, and then click Skype for Business Server Management Shell.

    Password:  ********
    Test-CsDialInConferencing -UserSipAddress sip:testuser1@contoso.com -UserCredential $credentials -TargetFqdn <serverName>.<domainName>.com -Verbose
    

    The resulting report shows either Success or Failure, along with specific diagnostic information. The -Verbose flag provides more detailed information about how many access numbers were found and details about them.
