  • Applies to:
  • Operations Automation 5.5

Symptoms

  • There are some SIP domains to which no users belong.
  • The simple URL remains in Lync after the SIP domain is removed.
  • The simple URLs are missing for some SIP domains.
  • The user provisioning task fails with the message:

    There must be an Active URL for Meet for each SIP Domain
    
  • The user removing task fails with the message:

    Simple URL cannot be specified for a nonexistent SIP Domain.  Please add the SIP Domain first
    

Cause

The issue may be caused by failed tasks on creating/updating/removing Lync users.

Resolution

Run the following script (attached to this KB article) from the PowerShell with the LyncOnline module imported on the Lync provisioning gateway host:

  1. Extract the attached archive on the Lync provisioning gateway host.
  2. Test script:

    .\RemoveUnusedDomains.ps1 -preferredDomainController '<Preferred Domain Controller>' -baseMeetDomain '<Conferencing domain name>' -lyncAdminLogin '<Lync System Administrator User Name>' -lyncAdminPassword '<Lync System Administrator Password>'
    

    Example:

    .\RemoveUnusedDomains.ps1 -preferredDomainController dc01.provider.net -baseMeetDomain meet.provider.net -lyncAdminLogin Administrator -lyncAdminPassword 'some secure password'
    

    View the log file RemoveUnusedDomain-log.txt in the folder the script was run from.

    Note: Output of the script may contain the warning WARNING: Activation (Enable-CSComputer) may need to be re-run on impacted Front End servers. If the lyncAdminLogin and lyncAdminPassword parameters are specified, this action (Enable-CSComputer) is performed by a script.

  3. If the script was executed correctly, register a scheduled task:

    schtasks /create /SC MONTHLY /mo LASTDAY /TR "%SystemRoot%\system32\windowspowershell\v1.0\powershell.exe -command '<full path to extracted script>\RemoveUnusedDomains.ps1 -preferredDomainController <Preferred Domain Controller> -baseMeetDomain <Conferencing domain name> -lyncAdminLogin <Lync System Administrator User Name> -lyncAdminPassword <Lync System Administrator Password>'" /ST 23:59 /TN "Lync Remove Unused Domains" /M *
    

    This command registers the scheduled task that executes the RemoveUnusedDomains script on the last day of every month at 23:59.
