  • Hi,

    You may use WSUS or any other patch management system (e.g. SCCM) to perform remote updates for those machines. Alternatively, you can download the updates https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2889923 and use GPO to perform the remote installation when user logins to the desktop the next time the machine is being rebooted. Hope this helps!

  • Hi Mital,

    would you check if user that did not receive update for Skype for Business does or does not have Microsoft update enabled?

    Windows can run in two modes:

    - check for Windows updates only

    - check for updates for Windows and other Microsoft products

    To get update Skype for Business you will need to set a second option

  • Added to M... you can control Skype UI in your environment by running the below scripts:

    Enable Skype UI for all users: Set-CsClientPolicy -Identity Global -EnableSkypeUI $true

    Disable Skype user interface (UI) for all users: Set-CsClientPolicy -Identity Global -EnableSkypeUI $false

    You need to update your Lync 2013 pool with Feb 2015 CU to support Skype for Business client.

  • Hi Mital Bhatt,

     

    I’m not sure whether the KB2889923 can be applied to Office 365 ProPlus.

    If the user who use Office 365 ProPlus , you can check out the following thread.
