    Note When you click Install Updates, the UI indicates which updates are installed.

    To run the Cumulative Server Update Installer, run the following command:LyncServerUpdateInstaller.exe Notes The following text describes parameters that you can use together with the LyncServerUpdateInstaller.exe command:

    • The /silentmode switch applies all applicable updates in the background.

    • The /silentmode /forcereboot switch applies all applicable updates in the background. Additionally, the switch automatically restarts the server at the end of the installation process if this is necessary.

    • The /extractall switch extracts the updates from the installer and saves the updates in a subfolder that is named "Extracted." The subfolder is in the folder in which you ran the command.

After you run the Cumulative Server Update Installer, you must update all the applicable back-end servers. Check out how to update the back-end servers.
