The CU3 update for Lync Server 2013 has landed, and at first glance there’s at least one high-visibility fix. My Front-End adds updates to 9 different components.
There’s not a lot of detail provided – instead the descriptions are almost entirely “The cumulative update improves the reliability, stability, and performance of Lync Server 2013 <component>”.
2882803 Mediation server can’t forward call history headers when a forwarded call number has an extension in a Lync Server 2013 environment
2882800 You can’t dial out or share video in a Lync Web App meeting in a Lync Server 2013 environment
What’s New? Operator Assistance for Dial-In Conferences!
2882802 Update that enables the “operator assistance” feature during a PSTN dial-in conference in a Lync Server 2013 environment
This update enables administrators to provide support for the *0 Dual Tone Multi Frequency (DTMF) command in a public switched telephone network (PSTN) dial-in conference in a Microsoft Lync Server 2013 environment. After the update is installed, a PSTN caller is able to be transferred to an operator number that the administrator defines.
To enable this feature, the administrator must provide a valid help desk telephone number in the OperatorLineUri parameter by using the New-CsDialInConferencingDtmfConfiguration cmdlet or the Set-CsDialInConferencingDtmfConfigurationcmdlet.
Here’s what it looks like:
PS C:> Get-CsDialInConferencingDtmfConfiguration Identity : Global CommandCharacter : * MuteUnmuteCommand : 6 AudienceMuteCommand : 4 LockUnlockConferenceCommand : 7 HelpCommand : 1 PrivateRollCallCommand : 3 EnableDisableAnnouncementsCommand : 9 AdmitAll : 8 OperatorLineUri : tel:+61270001237
The update takes the server to “5.0.8308.556”:
Consistent with most CUs these days, the installation process requires a reboot to complete – and database changes too.
Ew! My Control Panel is now in Times Roman. (I’ve rebooted to no avail – will try an uninstall/reinstall later). Let me know if you encounter the same thing! (Since confirmed elsewhere: thanks Tristan!)
Don’t forget, you’ll always find the latest updates and all the documentation and support utils on my Lync 2013 Resource Toolkit page.
