Modified Product Family – Office Communications Server & Office Communicator appearing in WSUS


Hi WSUS Admins,


Just wanted to give you a heads up, later this month you will see the product family called “Office Communications Server” updated to “Office Communications Server & Office Communicator”.   This category will contain updates to components offered for various components of Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 and  Microsoft Office Communicator.


Office Communications Server 2007 and R2 manages all real-time communications including: instant messaging, VoIP, audio and video conferencing. Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 and R2 also powers presence, a key benefit of Microsoft unified communications that unites the contact and identity information stored in Active Directory with the ways people communicate.  Security updates can be released through this category periodically.


Office Communicator  is a unified communications client that helps people be more productive by enabling them to communicate easily with others in different locations or time zones using a range of different communication options, including instant messaging (IM), voice, and video. Integration with programs across the 2007 Microsoft Office system — including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Groove, and SharePoint Server — gives information workers many different ways to communicate with each other via a consistent and simple user experience


Due to the variety of applications/components that can reside under this product family, subscribing to this product family is recommended. We will send out additional information if anything changes.


 


Thanks, 


The WSUS team

    Finally, we get Office Communicator patches to WSUS. I’ve been waiting for this for some time. Great stuff.

    Thanks.

    Finally!  No idea why Communicator wasn’t on WSUS in the first place.  Pretty unbelievable if you ask me but at least it’s getting added now.

    Category is renamed to

    "Office Communications Server And Office Communicator"

    But still only one Sub-Cat "Office Communications Server 2007".

    Still no "Office Communicator Client" Sub-Cat and still no Communicator Client Hotfixes (like KB957707) available by WSUS

    We began a Communicator pilot deployment with the understanding that we’d be able to update it via WSUS well before now.  Can anyone tell us when we’ll see updates for Office Communicator on WSUS?
