Additionally Microsoft plans to release new versions of the Lync Phone Edition client quarterly as Cumulative Updates (CU).Just last week CU1 was released and CU2 is slated for release in Q2 2011.
Previous releases for the same device family and edition are then taken offline so that only the latest edition is typically available at any given time (previous URLs will be forwarded to the latest editions as well).In most cases the latest OCS 2007 R2 software (3.5.6907) will be installed on a Tanjay and this version is capable of signing directly into Lync Server given that the required DHCP options are configured. At this point a reboot of the phone can help kick things off a bit quicker as well as make it easy to track the progress though server logs which may be full of activity from other devices in use on the network.When updating Aries device there are no legacy hostnames used and as these devices only operate with Lync Server. Download and install the update package on to the Lync Server. Configure a test device to first validate a successful update and working installation. Trigger an update on the test device (or just wait). But understand this is not necessary and now that the Test Device is created the associated device will update on it’s own after a period of inactivity (typically 10 minutes).The process is even simpler to support, except for the case that a pre-release beta device is in question. The reboot simply triggers the phone to look for an update without waiting as long.The large majority of Aries devices in existence today will have at least the Release Candidate version (4.0.7457), if not already at RTM. While waiting the IIS server logs on the Lync Server can be viewed to see what the phone is up to, as well as keep an eye out for the update version check.In physical terms, delegation is very similar to how a manager will delegate responsibility of tasks to his staff.
The results are the same, however more than one person was involved in the process.The first line shows the device on it’s original 7457 build asking for the internal and external URLs to download an approved update from.Also note that the device’s specific hardware revision ( Less than 10 minutes later a second entry from the same device appears, this time reporting that it is running the latest 7577 build.The Test Device object can be retained for later use or deleted if no longer testing with that specific device.It's normally this last stage of delegation that is broken with most home user setups.When working with Tanjay devices the Lync Server Client Version Policy by default blocks clients running version 1.0.196 or older.
