Installation methods

To install updates for Office Communications Server 2007 R2, use one of the following methods:

Method 1: Cumulative Server Update Installer

To install these updates, you must apply the updates by using Cumulative Server Update Installer, and then manually run the database upgrade from July 2010 for Office Communications Server Back-end database.

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. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Download Center Web site:

    Download
    Download the ServerUpdateInstaller.exe package now.
  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 a command prompt, use the following command, together with the appropriate switches:
    ServerUpdateInstaller.exe [/silentmode  [/forcereboot]] | [/extractall]
    Notes

    The /silentmode/forcereboot switch applies all the applicable updates silently and then automatically restarts the server at the end of the installation process if it is necessary.

    The /extractall switch the updates from the installer and puts the updates in a subfolder that is named “Extracted” in the folder in which you ran the command.
  3. Apply the update for Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Back-end Database if it is not already applied. To obtain this update, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
    2512777 Description of the cumulative update package for Office Communications Server 2007 R2 database: March, 2011

Method 2: Microsoft Update

Note You can use Microsoft Update if you have already applied the cumulative update for Office Communication Server 2007 R2: September 2011.

You can only use Microsoft Update to apply the updates for Office Communications Server 2007 R2 if you installed the September 2011 updates for Office Communications Server 2007 R2 and the Office Communication Server 2007 R2 update for the Back-end Database that is described in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article 2512777.

If all the September 2011 updates were already applied, Microsoft Update updates the server to the latest updates for Office Communication Server 2007 R2 (January 2012).

Method 3: Manual installation

If you chose 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.
  • Communications Server Standard Edition and Communications 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 for Office Communication Server 2007 R2 Distributed Enterprise Edition:
    • Update the whole topology with the latest updates for each component at the same time. This may be possible in smaller environments.
    • First, update the pool and the directors who are servicing the pool. Update additional pools as possible with the directors for these pools at the same time. If a director services more than one pool, the director is updated while the first pool that it services is updated. The external pool servers must be updated after the pool that they service is updated.
    • (CWA and media) If an external pool server services more than one pool, it will be updated after all the pools that it services are updated.
