Meet URL does not work on FE server if Enable-CsComputer command is not executed. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Meet URL does not work SIP domain in a tenant organization and executed "Enable-CsComputer" command on only one FE server (FE1) out of 3 (FE2 and FE3 - not executed).

    If I try to access meet URL which contains newly added SIP domain, doesn't get browsed in a browser on FE2 and FE3, unless and untill I execute "Enable-CsComputer on FE2 and FE3 servers.

    Is there any Microsoft's link available which says that after adding a new SIP domain,"Enable-CsComputer" command execution is mandatory on all FE servers ? If yes, please let me know vial mail or reply here.

  • Hi Skothari,

    Ive seen something similar before, have you signed into the SfB client with a user who using a sip uri from the new sip domain ? Try and set up a meeting and then check the meet page.

    Do you also have DNS in place for the new sip domain ?

  • Hi Sneha,

    I found a link from MS technet https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg412991.aspx

    where it is mentioned After updating a simple URL collection, you must then run the Enable-CsComputer cmdlet,

    But it is not clear whether to execute Enable-CsComputer cmdlet on all SkypeForBusiness Frontend server or not.

  • Hi skothari,

    Welcome to our forum.     

    Whenever you change a simple URL name or add it, you must run the Enable-CsComputer command on each FE server to register the change:

    “If you change a simple URL after initial deployment, you must be aware of what changes impact your Domain Name System (DNS) records and certificates for simple URLs. If the change impacts the base of a simple URL, you must change the DNS records and certificates too. For example, changing from https://sfb.contoso.com/Meet to https://meet.contoso.com changes the base URL from sfb.contoso.com to meet.contoso.com, so you would need to change the DNS records and certificates to refer to meet.contoso.com. If you changed the simple URL from https://sfb.contoso.com/Meet to https://sfb.contoso.com/Meetings, the base URL of sfb.contoso.com stays the same, so no DNS or certificate changes are needed. Whenever you change a simple URL name, however, you must run the Enable-CsComputer cmdlet on each Director and Front End server to register the change.

    If there are any questions or issues, please be free to let me know.

  • Hi Jim,

    As per the technet link you shared, it is for the Base SimpleURL, which is one time activity.

    But it is not clear what we have to do if we want to add a new SIP domain, if we follow the "Simple URL Naming Option 3" from https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg398287%28v=ocs.15%29.aspx

  • Hi Jim,

    I have gone through  the link provided by you, but i haven't changed base simple URL.

    I added a new SIP domain and updated a simple URL configuration. After that  I enable-CsComputer command on FE1 server, but not executed this command on FE2 and FE3 servers.

    Do I need to execute "Enable-CsComputer" command on all FE servers on adding a new SIP domain ?
