Upgrade an Evaluation Version of an Enterprise Pool

Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 will reach end of support on January 9, 2018. To stay supported, you will need to upgrade. For more information, see Resources to help you upgrade your Office 2007 servers and clients.

Use the full release version of Server.msi to automatically upgrade the evaluation version of a pool or server to the full version.

To upgrade the installation of each Enterprise Edition Server

  1. Log on to the Enterprise Edition Server using local administrator credentials.

  2. Upgrade the installation for the Enterprise Edition Server. Use Server.msi which can be run from the installation folder or the CD (Setup\i386\setup directory).

    MsiExec.exe /i Server.msi EVALTOFULL=1 [/l*v <Drive:\Directory\FileName.log>] [/q[n|b|r][+]]

    For example:

    MsiExec.exe /i Server.msi EVALTOFULL=1 /l*v C:\Upgrade.log


    Specify /qn parameter to run a silent upgrade of installation files during which no wizard pages or dialog boxes appear. If you run a silent install, specify the logging option with /l*vx <file path> parameter. You can also use the /qn+ parameter to run a silent installation that displays a dialog box at the end of the procedure indicating whether the procedure is successful.

  3. Follow the steps in the wizard to complete the upgrade.

  4. Click Finish to exit the wizard.

  5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 for each Enterprise Edition Server in the Enterprise pool.
