Disable Video modalitese for certian CSusers in Lync 2013

I have a requirement to disable video for few lync users sitting in remote site dealing with low bandwidth. This whole exercise is to provide good user experience for Audio

To do this, we need to follow below steps

  1. Create a Conferencing policy using below cmdlet


2. Disable Video by set Boolean value $false for EnableP2PVideo


I have disabled sharing too, hence you can change other parameter on base of your requirement

See this article for more details about parameter and CS conferencing policy


3. See below CS conferencing policy which shows the EnableP2PVideo & EnableAppDesktopSharing


Now you can assign this policy for individual users or group of users thru CSV file

Use below cmdlet to assign for single user

Get-CsUser Useralias | Grant-CsConferencingPolicy -PolicyName Policyname

Use below cmdlet for a list thru CSV file (Change location accordingly)

import-csv C:\input.CSV | ForEach-Object {

write-host “Login” $_.login

Get-CsUser $_.login | Grant-CsConferencingPolicy -PolicyName DisableVideoANDSharing }

Hope it will help someone dealing with same need 🙂 !!!
