Move CMS from Lync 2010 to Lync 2013

When we introduce Lync 2013 on Lync 2010 infra CMS will be on Lync 2010.So if we want to move the CMS to new 2013 pool here is the steps.
For safer part we can take config backup using export-csconfig and export-cslisconfig.
Next step is to install CMS store new Lync 2013 pool for that run the below command.

Install-Csdatabase -centralmanagementdatabase -usedefaultsqlpaths -sqlserverfqdn <backendsqlserverfqdn>

Next step is to move CMS server.


If the source cms server is offline you can use below command.

Move-CsManagementServer -ConfigurationFileName "C:\" -LisConfigurationFileName "C:\" -Force
