Happy new year – have a Lync update! The CU4 update for Lync Server 2013 has landed, and at first glance there’s at least one fix for which I already carry a scar. My Front-End updates only 5 components.
This update takes the Server to 5.0.8308.577 (from .556).
2912334 Event ID 57006 is logged when you cannot restart the Lync Server 2013 front-end service (when a user’s SIP URI contains a reserved character, e.g. “firstname.lastname@example.org”)
2912338 Can’t call Enterprise Voice-enabled users when the users have the same main telephone number in a Lync Server 2013 environment
2912340 An external call is routed based on Location-Based Routing that is configured for internal AD sites in a Lync Server 2013 environment
2912343 Event ID 1001 is logged when the RTCSrv.exe progress crashes on a Lync Server 2013 Edge server
2912341 Event ID 32054 is logged on a Lync Server 2013 front-end server when a user signs in to a Lync mobile client
2912342 Lync Server 2013 supports TDE (Transparent Data Encryption) in SQL Server 2008 or a later version on a back-end server
If any other new tricks are flushed out, I’ll add them…
The installation didn’t force me to reboot the server, but it’s always good to give it a cleansing reboot with every new CU.
No Need for a Database Update!
Yay! The installation process doesn’t stipulate a requirement to run any database update commandlets. I thought I’d give it a whirl anyway, and I can confirm that none of the database components (as listed by Doug here) were changed as part of that process.
All reported much like the below:
