Smart setup – not so smart afterall.


This Feature works now – just tested it wit ha fresh ISO – and tadaa.. the setup process is doing a “patching” step.

After deploying the first dozen of SKYPE for Business customers mostly Upgrades, but also a couple of greenfields – approximately the last half of them being done POST CU1 release – i finally decided to write this heads-up.
When announced the “Smart setup” sounded great – an exchange 2013-like feature securing that when deploying new servers, you always install the latest and greatest code instead of RTM.

Sadly this does not seem to be the case – YET 🙂

So when deploying SKYPE for Business – AND you choose to check for updates – still run the CU installer afterwards, to ensure your servers are up-to-date

So please remeber to keep your servers updated.
Still – Happy SKYPE’ing though.
