Our last update to Skype for Business Server 2019 was July’s security update, to 7.0.2046.404.
Today we see build 7.0.2046.409, which updated four components on my Standard Edition Front-End.
- Kb5018063 Cannot assign policy for usernames that have a backslash by using MACP
Nothing noted, however ONE new cmdlet snuck into the SfB module in this update:
This “test-” cmdlet joins the only other verb we have for that noun, the “remove-“.
After you uninstall this update, the standard MACP user sign-in URL (“https://<your pool FQDN>/macp”) fails. Instead, you have to use the following URL to sign in to MACP:
https://<your pool FQDN>/macp/
Note the now critical trailing slash. I tested this without the trailing slash and it worked, so I don’t know if this is an old notice that’s now obsolete, or still relevant in some scenarios. One to note regardless.
I got curious, ran boostrapper (not called out as required), bounced iis, and the same URL worked, without needing the trailing slash.
Here’s the “before” view of it going on to my Lab’s Standard Edition Front-End:
The installer didn’t prompt me to reboot, but I always like to give it one for good measure.
5th October 2022: This is the initial release.
