Keeping track of the status of a lot of contacts can be a bit trying on a system. It might be a good idea to limit the celebrity status of some of your users by limiting the number of contacts they can have at once.
Do you want to type commands at the command prompt, or write scripts to carry out those same commands? With Windows PowerShell, you no longer have to choose.
You have all these users in Active Directory, how do you enable them for Communications Server? Read this article to find out.
It's one thing to modify settings in Microsoft Communications Server by changing property values. It's a whole other thing to do that with properties that can contain multiple values. But don't worry, we've got it covered here.
In this article you’ll find out how to set telephony options in Communications Server PowerShell. The PowerShell options don’t quite map to the Communications Server Control Panel options, so this isn’t quite a simple as it might seem. But – for the most part – we make it seem pretty simple.

But if you’ve worked with Windows PowerShell much, you know that you can do a significant amount of filtering with the Where-Object cmdlet. So why all the filtering with LdapFilter and Filter? This article explains why.
