Updating my thread box software - Cam 2 cam fun
The device is again asking for a download package, but since it is now on the latest approved no URL response is given by the Lync Server.After some time has passed and sufficient testing has been completed in the environment then each of the supported device updates should be approved so any device can be updated automatically.
I have received a job invitation to the company which uses Inventor.These are not service pack type updates but are instead the full client repackaged as a single firmware.Previous releases for the same device family and edition are then taken offline so that only the latest edition is typically available at any given time (previous URLs will be forwarded to the latest editions as well).The first line shows the device on it’s original 7457 build asking for the internal and external URLs to download an approved update from.Also note that the device’s specific hardware revision ( Less than 10 minutes later a second entry from the same device appears, this time reporting that it is running the latest 7577 build.By default an installation of Lync Server does not contain any pre-installed or pre-approved updates, this must be performed manually by an administrator.
This is basically the same process as was used in Office Communications Server except that now there are multiple update packages, which on the surface appear to be identical.
In most cases the latest OCS 2007 R2 software (3.5.6907) will be installed on a Tanjay and this version is capable of signing directly into Lync Server given that the required DHCP options are configured. At this point a reboot of the phone can help kick things off a bit quicker as well as make it easy to track the progress though server logs which may be full of activity from other devices in use on the network.
When updating Aries device there are no legacy hostnames used and as these devices only operate with Lync Server. Download and install the update package on to the Lync Server. Configure a test device to first validate a successful update and working installation. Trigger an update on the test device (or just wait). But understand this is not necessary and now that the Test Device is created the associated device will update on it’s own after a period of inactivity (typically 10 minutes).
Previously the only supported devices that used the Office Communicator Phone Edition client were the Microsoft reference-design “Tanjay” family of devices: the Polycom CX700 and LG-Nortel IP8540.
Both phones were identical and used the exact same software so a single installation package was distributed and updated on a regular basis.
Lync Server 2010 now has multiple versions of the update package, as they are both different clients (with different interfaces and features) as well as different device designs between vendors.
