While LIS (Location Information Service) is designed mainly to support E911 (Enhanced 911 services), and I don’t have one, I will try to make the best of it in lab environment.
I will test by logging in from a PC on subnet 10.8.0.0 and from my laptop, connected via Wireless Access Point on the same subnet.I will follow the directions form Technet found here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg415678.aspx
First, I will set my Wired Subnet and populate the variables by executing:
Set-CsLisSubnet -Subnet 10.8.0.0 -City “Southern City” -CompanyName “My Company” -Country US -Description “Wired LAN” -HouseNumber 100 -HouseNumberSuffix “” -Location “My Wired LAN” -PostalCode 99999 -PostDirectional “” -PreDirectional “” -State GA -StreetName “My Street” -StreetSuffix Str. -WhatIf
***Note the “WhatIf” parameter. With so much typing, errors are quite possible and I want to check if the cmdlet will be executed.
Looks good and I will run it without “WhatIf” switch.
Next, I will set my Wireless Access Point:
Set-CsLisWirelessAccessPoint -BSSID 00-23-04-6e-80-e0 -City “Southern City” -CompanyName “My Company” -Country US -Description “Wireless AP” -HouseNumber 100 -HouseNumberSuffix “” -Location “My Wireless AP” -PostalCode 99999 -PostDirectional “” -PreDirectional “” -State GA -StreetName “My Street” -StreetSuffix Str.
Because this is “just for fun” configuration, I will publish the LIS Configuration (publish-CsLisConfiguration)
After replication, I logged from both PC and laptop and... the test was successful.
Of course, this is quick touch on the subject. LIS has tons of features and reading and understanding how it works and possible implications is highly advisable.
