Restore SimpleURL for Lync

Keen eyes might have noted the SimpleURLs were not restored using PowerShell to restore the Topology.

I have created a video, showing how you may restore the SimpleURL to the topology with a backup created with the Lync 2013 backup script v3.5

The video is about 1 minute 20 seconds long, and shows a restore of my lab in near real time. 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 command
  • When importing the CsConfiguration like this, you also restore the rest of the information created with the export-/import-CsConfiguration.
As always, you can find the script right here.
