SfB 2015 Server Update – August 2021

It’s been three months since our last update to Skype for Business Server 2015, which was a rare security update that took us to 6.0.9319.606.

This is build 6.0.9319.619, and it’s a bit of a doozie. It updated seven components on my Standard Edition Front-End, and also uninstalled the now-defunct Skype for Business Online PowerShell module. Check out the scary one I’ve highlighted:

I note that the Web app and Mediation components received updates, but there are no kb’s listed explaining their contribution to this CU.

What’s New?

Nothing noted. No cmdlets have been added to the SfB module in this update.

What’s Changed?

Nothing noted.

What’s Gone?

This CU also uninstalls the skype for Business Online PowerShell module, given the product’s recent retirement.

The installer prompts: DONE: SkypeOnlinePowerShell.Exe was uninstalled successfully.
Please install Microsoft Teams cmdlets module for Windows PowerShell manually as a replacement for Skype for Business Online, Windows PowerShell Module. Download it from: https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/MicrosoftTeams.


 

Two commandlets have also been removed from the SfB PowerShell module:

  • Get/Set-CsUserSettingsPageConfiguration

Known Issues

This isn’t new, but it’s still being included in the kb article:

After you install the January 2019 cumulative update 6.0.9319.537 (CU8) for Microsoft Skype for Business Server 2015, the Unified Communications Web API (UCWA) applications, such as Skype for Business on Mac, a web application for UCWA, and Skype for Business mobile clients, can’t make a call or join a meeting. For more information, please see the following article:

Installation

Here’s the “before” view of it going on to my Lab’s Standard Edition Front-End:


 
 

Reboot?

The installer didn’t prompt me to reboot, but I always like to give it one for good measure.
