When you upload device update to the Device Update Web service on the Lync Server Control Panel, it appears on the Pending Updates tab of the Lync Server Control Panel. Then, you can either approve or reject the update. Approving the update moves it to the Deployed Updates tab and makes it available to your organization’s devices. When a device connects to Device Update Web service, it automatically receives a deployed update that is appropriate to the type of device. As a best practice, you should test new updates to ensure that they function properly on your devices before you approve them.
|Devices always receive an approved update as long as the version number of the update is different from the version number of the update currently installed on the device, even if the approved update is older than the installed update.|
If you do not want an update to be deployed to your organization’s devices, you can reject it rather than approving it. Rejecting the update removes it from the Lync Server Control Panel.
|When working with updates, remember that a separate instance of Device Update Web service runs in each pool. When you upload, approve, reject, or roll back an update, this action takes effect only for the current pool.|
To approve an update
On the Pending Updates tab of the Device Update Web service on the Lync Server Control Panel, click the update to approve it.
Note: Use CTRL+click to select multiple updates.
