Unnecessary image version updates on a telephone that is running Lync 2010 Phone Edition

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a telephone that uses a Common Area Phone account and is running Microsoft Lync 2010 Phone Edition. 
  • You set the EnableHotdesking parameter to True. This lets users log on to the telephone by using their Lync Server 2010 accounts.
  • The Common Area Phone account and Lync Server 2010 user accounts are hosted in different pools. These pools have different image versions on a Device Update server.
  • The user switches between the two accounts.
In this situation, every time that the user switches between accounts, the Device Update server updates the image version of the telephone unnecessarily.
To resolve this issue, install the following cumulative update.
