Hi,

I have a question for Skype For Business.

I would like to force an update, where my Response group on my client is updated (Forced).

Here is my workflow :

I create a new distribution group
Then i hide the distribution group in the AD

Then i add members inside the Dist. group.


Now i go to the skype servers webinterface. https://skype4business/cscp

I create a new Group and under "Agents" i select : Use an existing email distribution list"

How can i now force this setting out to my client, so they dont have to wait for ?! 8 hours !? for this change - and my TestWorkFlow would appear on the clients?

Hope this makes sense :)

Thank you in advice

Normally you should use the command "Invoke-CsManagementStoreReplication" to force replication between all Skype for business servers but since this is client and response group then the command might be this

Update-CsUserDatabase

Tiny info about this cmdlet:
(Forces the back-end user database to clear its replication status with Active Directory. This causes the database to re-read all the user-related information stored in Active Directory Domain Services.)

You can also set the replicator to lower than its original value which is 1 minute using this cmdlet

Set-CsUserReplicatorConfiguration -ReplicationCycleInterval 00:00:05

I have tried the commands you have listed.

I did run it from my S4B server, where i have Skype for Business Server manegment Shell avaible.

After waiting 20 min. my clients still dosent have the agentgroup :(

I spoke with my technical supplier, and as far as they know, you cant force a synchronisation with dist. groups.

Hope they are wrong..

Is this standard or Enterprise deployment? Do you get to see anything in the event viewer "Lync Server" after you applied the cmdlets?
