Installation methods

To install updates for Lync Server 2010, you must follow these steps.

Step 1: Install the cumulative updates

Method 1: Cumulative Server Update Installer
To install these updates, you must apply the updates by using Cumulative Server Update Installer.

Note The Cumulative Server Update Installer applies all updates for the appropriate server role in one click.

To use the Cumulative Server Update Installer, follow these steps.

Note If User Account Control (UAC) is turned on, you must start the Cumulative Server Update Installer by using elevated permissions. This makes sure that all updates are installed correctly.
  1. Download Cumulative Server Update Installer (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=796480cd-daf4-4463-b418-7391cc46a5e1) .

  2. Run Cumulative Server Update Installer by using the UI or by using a command line.

    Note The UI provides a clear indication of which updates are installed when you click Install Updates.

    To run the installer by using the command prompt, run the following command:
    LyncServerUpdateInstaller.exe
    Note The following parameters can be used together with the LyncServerUpdateInstaller.exe command:
    • The /silentmode switch applies to all updates in the background.
    • The /silentmode /forcereboot switch applies to all updates in the background. If it is necessary, the switch then automatically restarts the server at the end of the installation process.
    • The /extractall switch extracts the updates from the installer and then saves the updates to a subfolder that is named "Extracted." This is located in the folder in which you ran the command.
Method 2: Microsoft Update
You can use Microsoft Update to apply the updates for Lync Server 2010.
Method 3: Manual installation
If you select to manually install these updates, this article helps you determine the mapping between the updates and the different server roles. However, you should consider the following recommendations for manual deployment:
  • All updates for a role must be deployed. Additionally, all updates on the same server role must be at the latest update level.
  • Lync Server Standard Edition and Lync Server Enterprise Edition Consolidated also require all updates for any roles that are deployed on the server. All updates must also be at the latest update level.
  • Additionally, the following recommendations apply to the Lync Server 2010 Distributed Enterprise Edition:
    • Update the whole topology with the latest cumulative update for each component at the same time. This best practice is highly recommended.
    • If the previous recommendation cannot be followed, install the latest cumulative update on at least all the pools and the directors at the same time.

Step 2: Apply the back-end database updates

After you install the update for the Core Components server role on a Lync Server 2010 Enterprise Edition front-end server, the updated SQL database files are dropped to the computer that has the Core Components server role installed. This also applies to a Lync Server 2010 Standard Edition server. To apply the database changes, run the following cmdlets:

Install-CsDatabase -Update -ConfiguredDatabases -SqlServerFqdn <EEBE.Fqdn> -UseDefaultSqlPaths
Notes
  • In a Lync Server 2010 Standard Edition environment, run the cmdlet on the Standard Edition server.
  • In a Lync Server 2010 Enterprise Edition environment that has archiving or monitoring services collocated with an Enterprise Edition back-end server, run this cmdlet on the Enterprise Edition back-end server.
  • In a Lync Server 2010 Enterprise Edition environment that does not have archiving and monitoring services collocated with an Enterprise Edition back-end server, run this cmdlet on the Enterprise Edition front-end server.
If you run the cmdlet without the UseDefaultSqlPaths parameter, the RTCDyn databases may be removed. Therefore, run the following cmdlet to restore the RTCDyn databases:

Install-CsDatabase -Update -ConfiguredDatabases -SqlServerFqdn <EEBE.Fqdn> -DatabasePaths <RtcDyn log path>, <RtcDyn data path>
Note The RtcDyn log is located in the path of the rtcdyn.ldf file. The RtcDyn data is located in the path of the rtcdyn.mdf file.
