To install the cumulative update for Lync Server 2013, Core Components, use one of the following methods.

Method 1: Cumulative Server Update Installer

The Cumulative Server Update Installer applies all updates for the appropriate server role in one operation. 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 to make sure that all updates are installed correctly.
  1. Download the Cumulative Server Update Installer. To do this, go to the following Microsoft Download Center website:
    Download Download the update package now.
  2. Run the Cumulative Server Update Installer by using the user interface (UI) or by using a command line.

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

    To run the Cumulative Server Update Installer, run the following command together with the appropriate switches for your situation:
    LyncServerUpdateInstaller.exe [/silentmode [/forcereboot]] | [/extractall]
    Notes
    • 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.

Method 2: Microsoft Update

Lync Server 2013 updates are also available from the Microsoft Update website.

Note After you install the updates for Lync Server 2013 by using Microsoft Update, you also need to update the databases on the back-end servers.

Update the database after the installation

After you install the update for the Core Components server role on a Lync Server 2013 Enterprise Edition front end server or on a Lync Server 2013 Standard Edition server, the updated SQL databases on the server are dropped. To apply the database changes, run the following cmdlet.

Lync Server 2013 Standard Edition

Install-CsDatabase -ConfiguredDatabases -SqlServerFqdn SE.FQDN -Verbose
Note You must run the cmdlet on the Lync Server 2013 Standard Edition server.

Lync Server 2013 Enterprise Edition

You must perform several configuration operations, depending on the kind of Lync Server 2013 Enterprise Edition back end servers that you are using.

Note Different kinds of Lync Server 2013 Enterprise Edition back end server include mirrored Enterprise Edition back end servers and mirrored Enterprise Edition back end servers that have the Central Management Server collocated.
  • If the Lync Server 2013 Enterprise Edition back end servers do not have SQL mirroring configured, run the following cmdlet to apply the changes:
    Install-CsDatabase -ConfiguredDatabases -SqlServerFqdn FEBE.FQDN -Verbose
    Note In a Lync Server 2013 Enterprise Edition environment in which the archiving or monitoring services are collocated with a Lync Server 2013 Enterprise Edition back end server, run this cmdlet on the Enterprise Edition front end server.
  • If the Lync Server 2013 Enterprise Edition back end servers have SQL mirroring configured, follow these steps to apply the database changes:
    1. Run the following cmdlet to retrieve the mirror database state:
      Get-CsDatabaseMirrorState -PoolFqdn Pool.FQDN -Verbose
      • In the returned results, the value of the StateOnPrimary field should be "Principal" for all the databases that are associated with the server pool.
      • If an SQL database mirroring witness is deployed, some databases may fail over to the primary database, and other databases may fail over to the mirror database. If you do not configure all databases to fail over to the primary database before you run the Uninstall-CsMirrorDatase cmdlet, the databases are split across both servers.
    2. Run the following cmdlet to remove the mirror:
      Uninstall-CsMirrorDatabase -DatabaseType Application -SqlServerFQDN EEBE.FQDN -SqlInstanceName SQLInstanceName -DropExistingDatabasesOnMirror -Verbose
    3. Run the following cmdlet to apply the changes:
      Install-CsDatabase -ConfiguredDatabases -SqlServerFqdn EEBE.Fqdn -Verbose
      Note In a Lync Server 2013 Enterprise Edition environment in which the archiving or monitoring services are collocated with an Enterprise Edition back end server, run this cmdlet on the Lync Server 2013 Enterprise Edition back end server.
    4. Run the following cmdlet to reinstall the mirror:
      Install-CsMirrorDatabase -DatabaseType Application -SqlServerFQDN EEBE.Fqdn -SqlInstanceName SQLInstanceName -FileShare MirrorFileshare -Verbose
    5. Run the following cmdlet to retrieve the mirror database state:
      Get-CsDatabaseMirrorState -PoolFqdn Pool.FQDN -Verbose


      Note In the results, the StateOnPrimary field should be Principal for all databases that are associated with the server pool.
  • If the Lync Server 2013 Enterprise Edition back end servers have SQL mirroring configured and the Central Management database installed, follow these steps to apply the database changes:
    1. Run the following cmdlet to retrieve the mirror database state:
      Get-CsDatabaseMirrorState -PoolFqdn Pool.FQDN -Verbose
      Notes
      • In the returned results, the value of the StateOnPrimary field should be "Principal" for all the databases that are associated with the server pool.
      • If an SQL database mirroring witness is deployed, some databases may fails over to the primary database, and other databases may fail over to the mirror database. If you do not configure all databases to fail over to the primary database before you run the Uninstall-CsMirrorDatase cmdlet, the databases are split across both servers.

    5. Run the following cmdlet to reinstall the mirror:
      Install-CsMirrorDatabase -DatabaseType Application -SqlServerFQDN EEBE.FQDN -SqlInstanceName SQLInstanceName -FileShare MirrorFileshare -Verbose
    6. Run the following cmdlet to retrieve the mirror database state:
      Get-CsDatabaseMirrorState -PoolFqdn Pool.FQDN -Verbose
