Lync 2010: Database Update failed

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 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.
