View Software Updates for Devices in Your Organization

 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-10-17

With Microsoft Lync Server 2010, you use Device Update Web service to view and manage software updates for your organization’s devices. These updates are available in .cab (cabinet) files from the Microsoft Support website at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=204091. After you download the .cab file, run the Import-CSdeviceUpdate cmdlet to import the device update rules from the .cab file. For details about the Import-CSdeviceUpdate cmdlet, see Import-CsDeviceUpdate in the Lync Server Management Shell documentation.

tipTip:
Before deploying a new update to your organization, verify that it functions correctly on a test device.

  1. From the Microsoft Support website at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=204091, download the .cab file to a location on a Lync Server 2010 computer (for example, C:\Updates\UCUpdates.cab).

  2. Import the device update rules from the C:\Updates\UCUpdates.cab file by running one of the following cmdlets:

    • If the .cab file is located on the same computer as the one running the service to be updated (service:Redmond-websvc-2), run the following cmdlet:

      Import-CsDeviceUpdate -Identity service:Redmond-websvc-2 -FileName C:\Updates\UCUpdates.cab
      
    • If the .cab file is located on a different computer than the one running the service to be updated (service:Redmond-websvc-3), run the following cmdlet:

      Import-CsDeviceUpdate -Identity service:Redmond-websvc-3 -ByteInput C:\Updates\UCUpdates.cab
      
  3. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server Administrative Tools.

  4. In the left navigation bar, click Clients, and then click Device Update.

  5. On the Device Update page, click an update in the list, and then do one of the following:

    • Cancel a pending update. To prevent the selected update from being deployed to your organization’s devices, click the Action menu, and then click Cancel pending updates.

    • Approve an update. To allow the selected update to be deployed to your organization’s devices, click the Action menu, and then click Approve.

    • Restore an update. To allow a previously approved update to be deployed to your organization’s devices, click the Action menu, and then click Restore.
