lync enable accounts by simply adding in the Identity of the user RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to write a PS script to make it easier to lync enable accounts by simply adding in the Identity of the user.

    $User= Read-Host -prompt "Add lync user UPN,SIP,domain\logon, and AD Display Name"

    $LyncUser= Get-CsAdUser -Identity $User

    $user|gm it is a string. I need it to be "TypeName:Microsoft.Rtc.Management.ADConnect.Schema.ADUser"

    So that the following works

    Get-CsAdUser -identity $User |Enable-CsUser -RegistrarPool "FE Pool" -SipAddressType emailaddress

    Thank you
