Overview

Depending on the size of the update and the number of updates being installed, the reboot may take several minutes and possibly up to an hour.

Sonus publishes Update Packs on a regular basis through the Sonus Download Center . The Update Packs work with Windows Update and other Non-Windows updates in order to keep the ASM up-to-date. The Update Packs contain a list of tested and authorized Windows updates, or specific installation packages such as Lync Cumulative Updates.

There are two methods of updating the ASM:

  1. Using the built-in functionality in the SBC 1000/2000 User Interface

  2. Using the REST interface

The ASM needs to have access to the Internet and specifically to the Microsoft Windows Support website.

As the SBC 1k/2k ASM employs Mircosoft's Windows Server operating system, it is necessary to perodically download Windows Updates.  Updates are normally downloaded directly to the ASM from the Microsoft Windows Update website. In some cases, the ASM may be installed in a network that does not have Internet access to Microsoft's Windows Update website, therefore the ASM requires an alternative method to download Windows Updates. For more information, see Installing a WSUS.

Two types of ASM Roll-up Update .pkg files are provided and they include the following:

NOTE: Windows Update packs are cumulative (you only need to install the latest release). The update requires the following 2-step process:

  • Installation/Uploading the .pkg via the Install ASM update task. - This installs the Authorized windows updates list
  • Initiating Windows Update installation (via the operational status pane). - This connects to Microsoft support to install the updates listed in the authorization list

Installing Updates Using the UI

Uploading/Installing the Windows or Cumulative Updates ASM Roll-up File

  1. Download the roll-up file from Sonus Download Center and save it on your desktop or other convenient location.

  2. Launch your preferred browser. See Supported Platforms.

  3. Login to the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 node through the WebUI.

  4. In the WebUI, click the Tasks tab.

  5. In the left navigation pane, go to Application Solution Module > Install ASM Update.



  6. Browse to the roll-up (.pkg) file.

  7. Click OK.

Installing the Windows Updates

After a successful upload of a windows update .pkg file, the Windows State field in the Windows Update panel changes to Updates Available - Install.
Once the .pkg file is uploaded to the node, the Operational Status pane, Windows Update, and Update State field will change to Updates Available - Install.

To install the updates:

  1. In the WebUI, click the Tasks tab.

  2. In the left navigation pane, go to Lync Survivable Branch Appliance > Operational Status.



  3. Click the Updates Available - Install link in the Windows Update panel.

  4. Click OK.

  5. If required, click "Yes - Restart ASM now (this is not always required).

Depending on the size of the update, the reboot may take several minutes.
