This method works on Fire TV Stick’s running the oldest software version, which is version 184.108.40.206_user_100211520.Our experience with the Fire TV has shown us that different software version will handle failed updates differently.Overall I like what HP has done with the firmware update process.Updating firmware is a process that is usually uneventful besides the butterfly effect in your stomach until you see the final reboot get past the initial BIOS screen (most people will relate to this).The overall process is basically the same as what Office Communications Server does, but with added flexibility of easily customizing some of the timing of the different events.The entire process happens over time based on a number of intervals, and by default looks like this: value indicates the default behavior of Lync Server to search Active Directory for any changes every minute.Before VMware or any other OS is installed on your new server I always recommend to update the firmware immediately.HP is always releasing new updates and they can truly improve the performance and reliability of your server.
This method involves cutting the Fire TV Stick’s internet connection at a precise moment during the initial setup.
Now, this can be a big pain if your internet connection is provided by a T1.
Once the ISO is downloaded you would now have to find a computer with a CD/DVD burner and fish around for some blank CD/DVD’s.
If this is not the case or for some reason normal replication is failing then a manual process can be used to toss out the entire copy of AD information in the SQL database’s address book store and regenerate a completely new copy.
To rebuild Lync’s copy of the AD data simply use the cmdlet.If you are blocking updates, the Fire TV Stick will not allow you to complete the initial setup.
