We have in a quite large Organization Lync 2010 deployed. Also we use for software and updates distribution System Center Configuration Manager.
Our problem we face is that, if we distribute the Lync 2010 client updates through SCCM’s update service, and the update gets applied the Lync 2010 client silently quits. Whatever someone for example is in a Call, IM, Conference … Of course you can think this not so good if the Manager is in an important call and suddenly the Lync client quits.
We surely could distribute the update late at night or in the night, but then we have the problem that not all client are power up since most users shut down their PC after they leave the office, and let me say “Wake On Lan” isn’t really an options there.
So I’m curios how others handle Lync Client Updates in their organization? Or what are the best practices in distributing them...
