Method 1: 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 When you click Install Updates, the UI provides a clear indication of which updates are installed.

    To run the Cumulative Server Update Installer, run the following command:

    LyncServerUpdateInstaller.exe  
    Note You can use the following parameters 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, and then it 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's named "Extracted" in the folder from which you ran the command.
After you run the Cumulative Server Update Installer, you must update all the applicable back-end servers. See how to update the back-end servers.
