Need a working link to the file McxStandalone.msi RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    One client needs to update their current Lync 2010 infrastructure. For a successful update, mobility services must be installed. Links to the installation file (McxStandalone.msi) do not work (404 not found), or links to the last CU that does not contain the desired file. For example:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2675053/description-of-the-cumulative-update-for-lync-server-2010-mobility-ser

    Perhaps someone has saved this file. Or someone else has a working and updated Lync 2010 infrastructure, in this case, you can get this file from the cache catalog: "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Lync Server\Deployment\cache\4.0.7577.0\setup\". If suddenly someone can help, please share a link to the file. Thanks.

  • Yes, the download page cannot be found because it is too old. Hope others still have this file.

    In addition, Lync 2010 will end of the support, suggest you upgrade to Skype for Business Server 2015.

    Lync Server 2010

    Bring up a new Skype for Business Server 2015 pool and then migrate users to this new pool. You can then decommission the old Lync Server 2010 pool. Upgrading from Lync Server 2010 to Skype for Business Server 2015 is similar to upgrading from Lync Server 2010 to Lync Server 2013. See Migration from Lync Server 2010 to Lync Server 2013.

  • Hi Anikin Alexander,

    You can install the KB 2861313. This cumulative update also resolves the issues that are previously listed in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article: 2675053 Description of the cumulative update for Lync Server 2010, Mobility Service: February 2012.

    The download link of the file is: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=11551.

  • Hi Sharon,

    This link refers to the latest cumulative update. It does not contain the desired file.

    If everything was so simple, then I would not ask for help on the forum) Thanks.

  • If you have a multi-homed Front End server the Mobility Service (Mcx) may sometimes fail

    Reason: When calculating routing for a Mobility request the service makes a call to read DNS settings of the registered adapter. In some instances it is possible for the non-registered adapter to be returned.
    This causes routing of the request to fail This is regardless subnet configuration on the second NIC
    There should be a forthcoming Release Note or KB Article on this topic
    UPDATE: This issue was fixed in the february 2012 mobility update: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2675221
    If you use a Director it must be updated the same way as for a Front End

    If you plan to support Lync Mobility and Push Notifications over a Wi-Fi you need to

    Add lyncdiscover (and resolve it the external IP) in the internal DNS
    Open TCP 5223 outbound in you firewall to support Push Notifications

    Thank you, but this post has nothing to do with my problem.

  • Hi Anikin Alexander,

    It seems the McxStandalone.msi file does not exist now. Hope someone else can share the file which is saved before.

    As JayceYYY said, Lync 2010 will end of support in 4/13/2021. It recommends you upgrade to Lync server 2013 or Skype for Business server 2015.
