Forefront not updating
His script will take care of the SQL 2012 Express SP1 instances for you as well. Let’s say you didn’t know about Pat’s script or that you could preinstall SQL 2012 Express SP1 and you have already installed Lync 2013 Front End Servers using the SQL 2012 Express RTM code.
I will show you how to upgrade your SQL 2012 Express RTM instances to SQL 2012 Express SP1.
We will be focusing almost exclusively on the FIM Service and Portal components in this article and not talking to the FIM Sync service, Reporting or Certificate Management.
As we know the FIM Portal is based upon Share Point and installs into an existing site collection, thus Share Point is a pre-requisite for the FIM Portal.
I am wondering if I manually install the 4.1 client update if it will take the client updates after that.
I only have about eight Windows 8.1 machines so if I have to do that by hand for now then I will and I think my organization will be moving to Server 2012 and SCCM 2012 this summer sometime.
I am just wondering what else I can check or change to make sure my Windows 8.1 clients get the Forefront client updates as they should??For more information on this, please see this Tech Net blog post here.Lync MVP, Pat Richard, has created an excellent script for all sorts of automated tool downloads/installs as well as prerequisite installs.NOTE: It looks like Forefront is getting the definition updates just fine but even if I do a manual Windows update check the client/AV Engine updates do not even show up as an option.Nothing in the update logs that I can see to shed any light onto the cause.
There’s a great way to pre-install your SQL 2012 Express instances with SP1 instead of letting the Lync 2013 Deployment Wizard install SQL.
