Restore a single Lync server from CsConfiguration Backup

In my previous video, I restored the entire CsConfiguration in order to recreate the correct SimpleURLs. In the following video I am showing how you may restore the configuration to a single Lync server, which has been taken offline. The backup was with the Lync 2013 backup script v3.5

The video has been trimmed to about 8 minutes long, and shows a restore of in my lab. The trimming has been done to shorten the time I had to wait through bootstrapper. It has no sound, but the CC will explain what's going on.


The important giveaways from this movie should be:
  • Permissions required to run Lync commands
  • Things to look out for
    • Use -LocalStore when targeting a single computer
  • A quick troubleshooting (where to find the logs)
As always, you can find the script right here.
