Enable-CsComputer : The term 'Enable-CsComputer' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet - Remote PowerShell RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I need to add/update 'Simple Urls' for few sip domains. For which I have to run 'Enable-CsComputer' command from a remote server.
    I have connected to Skype for Business Server using Remote PowerShell session. But when I run 'Enable-CsComputer' command, I get the following error.

    Enable-CsComputer : The term 'Enable-CsComputer' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was
    included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Enable-CsComputer
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Enable-CsComputer:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

    I am using the following script to connect to remote powershell session.

    $so = New-PSSessionOption -SkipCACheck:$true -SkipCNCheck:$true -SkipRevocationCheck:$true $session = New-PSSession -ConnectionUri "https://lync.domain.local/OcsPowerShell" -Credential $cred -SessionOption $so Import-PSSession $session

    How to run 'Enable-CsComputer' command remotely?

  • Not a direct answer, but there are a few Lync\Skype commands (I'm not sure this is one) that act up when using remote PowerShell and only seem to work when run directly on a Lync\Skype server.  I typically just RDP in for larger tasks that would require running a command like enable-cscomputer.

  • Hi itsrizi,

    Agree with others

    As a supplement, I will share a document about managing Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Using Remote PowerShell, it’s similar to SFB server 2015
