Installation information

  • You cannot install the Archiving Service in your topology after you install this update on Live Communications Server 2005 Service Pack 1 (SP1). For more information about how to work around this issue, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
    924189 Error message when you try to install Live Communications Server 2005 Archiving Service on a computer that is running Live Communications Server 2005 Service Pack 1: "Error 1722"
  • You must remove all previously installed hotfixes for Live Communications Server 2005 SP1 before you install this update.
  • This update cannot be uninstalled. To remove the update, you must remove Live Communications Server 2005 and then reinstall Live Communications Server 2005 from your original Live Communications Server 2005 CD. For more information about how to remove Live Communications Server 2005, see the "Removal information" section.
  • We recommend that you back up your database before you install this update. This will enable you to restore back to the last working state of the database in the unlikely event that the update fails to install. Then, back up your database again after you install this update.
  • Do not restore any backups that you made before you installed this update. If you restore these backups, you will effectively remove the update from the back-end database only. This leaves the front-end servers unable to connect until the update is reinstalled on the back-end servers.
  • You must have administrative permissions to Live Communications Server and to the back-end server that is running SQL Server to install this update.
  • If the back-end server that is running SQL Server is hosted on a server that is running Windows 2000 Server, you must install Windows Script Host (WSH) version 5.7 on the back-end server before you try to install the update. To download WSH version 5.7, visit the following Microsoft Web sites:

  • If the back-end server that is running SQL Server is hosted on a server that is running Windows 2000 Server, use one of the following methods:
    • Install the Windows 2000 Support Tools by using the Windows 2000 Server CD.
    • Copy the reg.exe utility from the CD, and save the utility to the following folder on the server:
      %systemroot%\Program Files\Microsoft LC 2005\DBsetup
  • You have to apply this update only on the active node of the SQL Server (active/passive) cluster.
We recommend that you install this update in the following order:
  1. Perimeter network servers
    Install the update on the Access Proxy server first. Then, install the update on the branch office proxy servers and the directory servers.
  2. Internal servers
    Install the update on the back-end server that is running Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005 Enterprise Edition first. Then, install the update on the front-end server that is running Live Communications Server 2005 Enterprise Edition, the server that is running Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005 Standard Edition, and the address book server.
  3. Administrative tools server
    Install this update on the server that is running the administrative tools last.
Non-Enterprise Editions of Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005
Install this update on any of the following servers that are running Live Communications Server 2005:
  • Standard Edition Server
  • Director (Standard Edition)
  • Proxy
  • Access Proxy
  • Address Book Server
  • Administration Tools
To install this update, run the following file:
LCS2005-KB911996-x86-Usa.msi

Note If you have moved the database from a server that is running Live Communications Server 2005 SP1 that had update 911996 installed to a new server that is running Live Communications Server 2005 SP1 Enterprise Edition (Back-end), you must reapply update 911996 to the new server. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Stop all front-end servers that are running Live Communications Server 2005 Enterprise Edition by using one of the following methods:
    • At a command prompt, type net stop rtcsrv, and then press ENTER.
    • Start the Live Communications Server 2005 administrative MMC snap-in, right-click the front-end server name, and then click Stop.
    • In Services (Services.msc), right-click Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005, and then click Stop.
    • In Computer Management (Compmgmt.msc), expand Services and Applications, click Services, right-click Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005, and then click Stop.
  2. On the back-end (SQL) servers that are hosting the RTC and RTCCONFIG databases for Live Communications Server 2005 Enterprise Edition, run the following command:
    LCS2005-KB911996-x86-Usa.msi POOLNAME=poolname
  3. On the front-end servers that are running Live Communications Server 2005 Enterprise Edition, run the following command:
    LCS2005-KB911996-x86-Usa.msi
    Note If you run the LCS2005-KB911996-x86-Usa.msi update on the front-end servers before you install the update on the back-end servers, the front-end servers will not be able to start. Additionally, the following error messages will be logged in the event log:
    • Event ID: 30968
      Source: Live Communications User Services
      Details: The component Live Communications User Services reported a critical error: code C3EE78F8 (Enterprise Edition Server successfully registered with the back-end, but a stored procedure version mismatch was detected. The service will not start until this problem is resolved.)
      To resolve this issue, make sure that you use the same installation package for the front-end servers and the back-end servers.
    • Event ID: 12299
      Source: Live Communications Server
      Details: The service is shutting down due to an internal error.
      Error Code: 0xC3EE78F8.
      To resolve this issue, examine the previous event log entries, and then resolve the issues. Then, restart the server. If the issue persists, contact Microsoft Product Support Services.
    To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
    1. On the back-end servers that are running Live Communications Server 2005 Enterprise Edition, run the following command:
      LCS2005-KB911996-x86-Usa.msi POOLNAME=poolname
    2. Start the front-end servers that are running Live Communications Server 2005 Enterprise Edition by using one of the following methods:
