July 2011 Updates for Lync 2010 (CU3)

In lieu of the July updates appearing on Windows Update today, in case you missed it, a round of Lync server and clients updates were released at the end of July – collectively referred to as Cumulative Update Package 3 (CU3).

I have heard of several issues in the field recently that were addressed by updates to the core components.

Server Updates

Lync 2010 Server (KB2571546) Lync Core Components (KB2571545)

Client Updates

Lync 2010 Client (KB2571543) Lync 2010 Phone Edition for Polycom CX700 and LG-Nortel IP Phone 8540 (KB2577593)

Microsoft Lync Remote PowerShell Administration

One method of remotely administering a Lync deployment is through a remote PowerShell session. This is paticularly useful on a 32-bit O/S (yes, they still exist) where the 64-bit Lync Administration tools cannot be installed (see my previous post Lync and OCS Administration Tools for more information).

You can always use the Lync Server 2010 Control Panel (from any computer running IE 7, IE 8, or Firefox 3+), but having administrative access via PowerShell will allow you to do more powerful custom administration – specifically Topology related administration.

Below are some tips that might save you some time.
