Lync 2010: Database Update failed
August 3, 2012
Posted by on
One of requirements for Lync 2010 Update deployments (since CU4) is an upgrade of back-end database.
Here is my environment:
FE01.domain.tld – front-end
Cluster.domain.tld – back-end SQL cluster
Lync-Pool.domain.tld – FQDN of my Lync Pool
According the http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2493736 we need the following command (if Monitoring/Archiving databases are not collocated):
Install-CsDatabase -Update -ConfiguredDatabases –Cluster.domain.tld –UseDefaultSqlPaths
Unfortunately that command failed for me with an error saying Cluster.domain.tld pool cannot be found!
Resolution – I used NETBIOS name of my cluster instead of FQDN like this
Install-CsDatabase -Update -ConfiguredDatabases –Cluster –UseDefaultSqlPaths
These command passed successfully.
