Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-23
View details about device update rules that have already been imported, including the type, model, and brand of devices the update applies to; version and type of update; and locale and pool for the update. Information is available for all imported device update rules—those that are pending approval, deployed (approved), recalled (restored), and those you’ve decided not to use (reset). Access this information from either Lync Server Control Panel or Windows PowerShell.
|For details about how to import, approve, reset, restore, and remove rules, see the topics listed at Device Update rules in Lync Server 2013.|
