Description | Syntax | Parameters | Switches | Related | Notes | Examples | Errorlevels | Availability

Creates, removes, or displays a TAPI application directory partition, or sets a default TAPI application directory partition. TAPI 3.1 clients can use the information in this application directory partition with the directory service locator service to find and communicate with TAPI directories.

Can also create or remove service connection points, which enable TAPI clients to efficiently locate TAPI application directory partitions in a domain.


Syntax

TAPICFG [/?]

TAPICFG install /directory:partition_name [/forcedefault] [/server:dc_name]

TAPICFG makedefault /directory:partition_name [/domain:domain_name]

TAPICFG publishscp /directory:partition_name [/domain:domain_name] [/forcedefault]

TAPICFG remove /directory:partition_name

TAPICFG removescp /directory:partition_name [/domain:domain_name]

TAPICFG show [/defaultonly] [/domain:domain_name]


Parameters
install (NT2003)
Creates a TAPI application directory partition.
makedefault (NT2003)
Sets the default TAPI application directory partition for the domain.
publishscp (NT2003)
Creates a service connection point to publish a TAPI application directory partition.
remove (NT2003)
Removes a TAPI application directory partition.
removescp (NT2003)
Removes a service connection point for a TAPI application directory partition.
show (NT2003)
Displays the names and locations of the TAPI application directory partitions in the domain.

Switches
/? (NT2003)
Display command help.
/defaultonly (NT2003)
Displays the names and locations of only the default TAPI application directory partition in the domain.
/directory:partition_name (NT2003)
Specifies the DNS name of the TAPI application directory partition to be created/default/publish/removed. This name must be a fully qualified domain name.
/domain:domain_name (NT2003)
Specifies the DNS name of the domain in which the service connection point is created/defaulted/displayed/removed. If omitted, the name of the local domain is used.
/forcedefault (NT2003)
Specifies that this directory is the default TAPI application directory partition for the domain. There can be multiple TAPI application directory partitions in a domain.
If this directory is the first TAPI application directory partition created on the domain, it is automatically set as the default.
/server:dc_name (NT2003)
Specifies the DNS name of the domain controller on which the TAPI application directory partition is created. If omitted, the name of the local computer is used.

Notes

You must be a member of the Enterprise Admins group in Active Directory to run either TAPICFG install (to create a TAPI application directory partition) or TAPICFG remove (to remove a TAPI application directory partition).

Can be run on any computer that is a member of the domain.

User-supplied text (such as the names of TAPI application directory partitions, servers, and domains) with International or Unicode characters are only displayed correctly if appropriate fonts and language support are installed.

You can still use Internet Locator Service (ILS) servers in your organization, if ILS is needed to support certain applications, because TAPI clients running Windows XP or a Windows Server 2003 operating system can query either ILS servers or TAPI application directory partitions.

You can use TAPICFG to create or remove service connection points. If the TAPI application directory partition is renamed for any reason. You must remove the existing service connection point and create a new one that contains the new DNS name of the TAPI application directory partition to be published. Otherwise, TAPI clients are unable to locate and access the TAPI application directory partition. You can also remove a service connection point for maintenance or security purposes.
