It took me a while to find the answer to this one for a client this morning so I thought I would write it up quickly and how it’s of help to someone else.
To enable in region recordings in and alternate region, you need to perform the following steps:
Download and install the Skype for Business Online Connector module – detailed here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/enterprise/manage-skype-for-business-online-with-microsoft-365-powershell?view=o365-worldwide
Once connected run the following script:
Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy – AllowCloudRecording $true -AllowRecordingStorageOutsideRegion $true -identity <PolicyName>
<PolicyName> depicts the Meeting Policy you would like to enable this for – so if you want the whole org, then this would be attached to the Global Policy, therefor your script would read as follows:
Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy – AllowCloudRecording $true -AllowRecordingStorageOutsideRegion $true -identity Global
Depending on the number of users in your organisation – this could take up to 2hours.
