Lync 2010 Assign Client Policies By Active Directory Groups

After we got our new Lync 2010 setup done, we was missing one key feature.
We want to assign Client policies by Active Directory groups instead of the need to login to Lync admin and change it.

So we made a simple powershell script to do the work for us

save it as Lync-SetClientPolicy.ps1

Import-Module "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Lync Server 2010\Modules\Lync\Lync.psd1"
$ADGroupName = $args[0]
$ClientPolicy = $args[1]

$strFilter = "(&(objectCategory=Group)(SamAccountName=" + $ADGroupName +"))"
$objDomain = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectoryEntry

$objSearcher = New-Object System.DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher

$objSearcher.SearchRoot = $objDomain

$objSearcher.Filter = $strFilter

$objSearcher.SearchScope = "Subtree"

$colProplist = "member"

foreach ($i in $colPropList)

{[void] $objSearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add($i)}

$colResults = $objSearcher.FindAll()

foreach ($objResult in $colResults)
$objItem = $objResult.Properties;
$group = $objItem.member

foreach ($user in $group)

$userlync= Get-CsUser -Identity $user
if ($userlync.ClientPolicy -like $ClientPolicy)

Grant-CsClientPolicy $user -PolicyName $ClientPolicy


And then a bat file to execute it from “scheduled task”

powershell -command "& 'C:\script\Lync-SetClientPolicy.ps1' "Lync-ClientPolicy-Sales" "Sales" "
powershell -command "& 'C:\script\Lync-SetClientPolicy.ps1' "Lync-ClientPolicy-Default" "Default" "
