Introduction

The Web Conf Data Tool allows an administrator of Microsoft Lync Server 2010 communications software to have more control over the data associated with an organizer's Web conferences. Scenarios include the ability to delete a specific user's meeting data based on a time-stamp criteria. You can download this tool and other Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Resource Kit tools from the Download Center.

Description

This tool allows the administrator to perform the following operations:

  1. Find all Web conferencing data associated with a single user.
  2. Delete all Web conferencing data associated with a single user.
  3. Delete all Web conferencing data associated with a single user that is older than a certain date.
  4. Move all Web conferencing data associated with a single user when that user is moved from one pool to another.

Note   In the previous list, the fourth operation works only after the administrator has moved a user from one pool to another.

The Web Conf Data Tool deletes or moves meeting data only for meetings that are inactive. Active meetings (or meetings in sessions) cannot be deleted.

This tool must be run from a computer that is in the same pool as the target user. The user whose meeting content data is being managed by this tool must be homed in the same user pool as shown in Table 1.

  • If a delete is performed, the tool outputs a list of all meeting data folders whose data is going to be deleted.
  • If a move is performed, the tool outputs a list of all the meeting data folders that were moved.

Purpose

This tool allows an administrator of Lync Server 2010 to have more control over the data associated with an organizer's Web conferences.

Requirements

The tool needs to be run in the same pool where the organizer is currently homed or from either pool in the case of a user move.

The tool must be run using administrator privileges with access to the Meeting Data store.

Examples

WebConfDataTool.exe /User:user0@contoso.com /Action:query ""/ExpirationDate:08/09/2010 12:00:00""

The preceding example shows how a query command would work. The output of such a command would be a list of all meeting content folders that would be affected by this tool.

WebConfDataTool.exe /User:user0@contoso.com /Action:delete

The preceding is an example of a delete command. The delete command removes all inactive meeting folders from this user.

WebConfDataTool.exe /User:user0@contoso.com /Action:move /OriginatorPool:pool0.contoso.com /TargetPool:pool1.contoso.com

The preceding is an example of a user move command. Upon success, this command moves all the user's data from pool0.contoso.com to pool1.contoso.com.

Summary

This tool can be a valuable resource to administrators who need more precise control over conference meeting data.
