Upgrading Standard Edition Servers

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 following procedure to upgrade the evaluation version of a Standard Edition Server using the command line.

To upgrade the installation files for each Standard Edition Server

  1. Log on to the evaluation version of Standard Edition Server using local administrator credentials.

  2. Upgrade the installation files for the Standard 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


    Specifying the /qn parameter will make the upgrade of installation files procedure silent and no wizard pages or dialog boxes will appear (step 3 is skipped). For the silent /qn case, the Windows Installer recommendation is always to specify the logging option with /l*vx <file path> parameter. See the syntax in step 2. Also, the /qn+ parameter can be used for silent installs but a dialog box appears at the end of the procedure indicating whether the procedure succeeds.

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

  4. Click Finish to exit the wizard.
