Installing Skype for Business 2015 Administrative Tools


Hi All

I wanted to script up the installation of Skype for Business Administration Tools on a remote administration server so I could make it repeatable, and see if it works the same way as Lync 2013, so I thought I'd share. It's a little more than running admintools.msi, not much more though; there are a few pre-reqs you need to make sure are installed. The main trick is to copy all the files in yellow off the Skype ISO and into a single folder. Then use that folder to run the following commands. In my case the folder was c:\software\sfb\admintools. When we have a Cumulative Update released for Skype, don't forget to include that too (which will be run with something like start /min /wait LyncServerUpdateInstaller.exe /silentmode, at least that is how we did it in Lync 2013. At this point in time there isn't a released CU so I will ignore that.

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.

@echo off

cd /d c:\software\sfb\admintools
set LogFile=%Temp%\InstallSkypeAdminTools.log

dir > %LogFile%

REM install visual c++ redistributable
date /t >> %LogFile%

start /min /wait vcredist_x64.exe /install /quiet /log %temp%\SkypeAdminTools-VCRedist.log

REM install SQL System CLR Runtime
