Lync Server scheduled maintenance can cause performance issues during business hours
This issue can take place under the following circumstances:
Lync users are experiencing issues with their presence information, meeting management or participating in conferences Lync Server maintenance is scheduled to run during business hours
Lync Server maintenance is scheduled to run while the Lync Server environment is operating at expected user capacity. This can cause contention with the Lync user experience.
To view the Lync Server MaintenanceTimeOfDay value use the Get-CsUserServicesConfiguration PowewrShell cmdlet as follows:
Using Server 2008 or Server 2008 R2 Click on Start, All Programs, Microsoft Lync Server Choose Lync Server Management Shell Using Server 2012 Press the Windows logo key to access the Start Page Click on the Lync Server Management Shell tile
From the Lync Server Management shell execute the Get-CsUserServicesConfiguration PowerShell cmdlet as per the example listed below:
Get-CsUserServicesConfiguration -Identity site:Redmond
Using the Get-CsUserServicesConfiguration PowerShell cmdlet requires permissions equivalent to members of the RTCUniversalUserAdmins or RTCUniversalServerAdmins security groups.
To update the Lync Server maintenance schedule settings use the Set-CsUserServicesConfiguration PowewrShell cmdlet with the MaintenanceTimeOfDay parameter
From the Lync Server Management shell execute the Set-CsUserServicesConfiguration PowerShell cmdlet as per the example listed below:
Get-CsUserServicesConfiguration -Identity site:Redmond -MaintenanceTimeOfDay "13:30"
The MaintenanceTimeOfDay value must be entered in 24 hours clock time format.
Using the Set-CsUserServicesConfiguration PowerShell cmdlet requires permissions equivalent to members of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins security group.
When the Lync Administrator makes changes to the Lync Server maintenance schedule the following informational message will be listed in the Lync Server event log.
