Skype for Business updates through Windows Updates?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are Skype for Business updates now being pushed through Windows Updates? Last I checked they were separate but our NOC partner is claiming they are now being pushed through MSU. Is this accurate? I'm having trouble finding any documentation to support this claim.

  • Client or server?  Answer to both is yes, but I would avoid using WSUS for server updates and opt to follow the articles for this to ensure the databases are updated as a part of this.

  • Hi efrank85

    Yes, agree with Anthony.

    Based on my understanding, you could use windows update and WSUS.

    If you use WSUS, it will help you to save network bandwidth.

    About windows update(.msu file), here is a blog for your reference
