This topic explains how to install an update on an Enterprise Edition Back End Server or a Standard Edition server.

If a Back End Server is down for at least 30 minutes while you are upgrading it, users may then go into resiliency mode. When the upgrade is finished and the Back End Servers has again connected with the Front End Servers in the pool, users are returned to full functionality. If the upgrade takes less than 30 minutes, users will not be affected.

  1. Log on to the server you are upgrading as a member of the CsAdministrator role.

  2. Download the update and extract it to the local hard disk.

  3. Start the Skype for Business Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Skype for Business 2015, and then click Skype for Business Server Management Shell..

  4. Stop Skype for Business Server services. At the command line, type:

    Stop-CsWindowsService
    
  5. Stop the World Wide Web service. At the command line, type:

    net stop w3svc
    
  6. Close all Skype for Business Server Management Shell windows.

  7. Install the update.

  8. Start the Skype for Business Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Skype for Business 2015, and then click Skype for Business Server Management Shell..

  9. Stop Skype for Business Server services again to catch Global Assembly Cache (GAC) –d assemblies. At the command line, type:

    Stop-CsWindowsService
    
  10. Restart the World Wide Web service. At the command line, type:

    net start w3svc
    
  11. Apply the changes made to the SQL Server databases by doing one of the following:

    • If this is an Enterprise Edition Back End Server and there are no collocated databases on this server, such as Archiving or Monitoring databases, then type the following at a command line:

      Install-CsDatabase -Update -ConfiguredDatabases -SqlServerFqdn <SQL Server FQDN>
      
    • If this is an Enterprise Edition Back End Server and there are collocated databases on this server, then type the following at a command line:

      Install-CsDatabase -Update -ConfiguredDatabases -SqlServerFqdn <SQL Server FQDN>  -ExcludeCollocatedStores
