Installing Lync Server 2013 Administrative Tools using command line


Hi All

I recently needed to script up the installation of Lync Server 2013 Administration Tools on a remote administration server so I could make it repeatable, and so I thought I’d share. Unfortunately it is not simply just running the admintools.msi. It’s not much more, but there are a few pre-reqs you need to make sure are installed. Enjoy.

Happy Skype/Lync’ing…

PS Don’t forget to test in a test environment before running in Prod 🙂

Run these commands in a Command Prompt as Administrator.

REM Mount Lync ISO as F:\

f:

cd f:\Setup\amd64

 

REM install visual c++ redistributable

start /max /wait vcredist_x64.exe /install /quiet

 

REM install SQL System CLR runtime

start /max /wait msiexec /i SQLSysClrTypes.msi /qb

 

REM install SharedManagementObjects.msi

start /max /wait msiexec /i SharedManagementObjects.msi /qb

 

REM install Admin Tool components (Lync core components is also required)

cd f:\Setup\amd64\Setup

start /max /wait msiexec /i OCSCore.msi /qb

start /max /wait msiexec /i AdminTools.msi /qb

 

REM go to location on Server where latest CU file is saved.

cd /d c:\software

 

REM finally install the latest cumulative update…

start /max /wait LyncServerUpdateInstaller.exe /silentmode

 

Version 2 approach

To make this more graceful, copy the vcredist_x64.exe, SQLSysClrTypes.msi, SharedManagementObjects.msi, OCSCore.msi, AdminTools.msi and LyncServerUpdateInstaller.exe to a folder like c:\Lync2013AdminTools.

Then run as Admin in Command Prompt the following .cmd file.

NOTE: You should be able to use this script as a package in SCCM, play around with it running psexec with the -s system flag to test how SCCM would run using the system account.
