This section describes how to manage Device Update Web service, including how to use the Device Update Web service on the Lync Server Control Panel, obtain and test updates, approve updates, roll back updates, and manage log and image files. For details about Device Update Web service, see Updating Devices.

The devices are programmed to check the Device Update Web service for approved updates every 24 hours by default and also whenever the device starts up and when the user signs in. When an approved update is available, Device Update Web service downloads it to the device, and it is automatically installed while the device is not in use. If necessary, you can also roll back updates that have been installed to devices, restoring them to previous versions. Device Update Web service stores device logs and update logs, which you can use to track updates and devices, and troubleshoot any problems.
