The ) to indicate a newer version, in addition to the last four digits being incremented.

Yet in practice using the Lync Device Update service for VVX phone updates is identical to the process used by LPE devices.

So when working with a Lync Server already setup for LPE updates then adding VVX updates is as simple as importing and approving the new packages.

The Restore Version is initially blank and will be populated when this process is performed again with another newer update.

When approving a newer update the previously approved version will be moved to the Restore Version field which can then be used to easily roll-back devices to that older version.

It is important to understand what the three version fields represent in the device update configuration.

The Pending Version is the version of files which were last imported into the server using the cmdlet.

If there were any problems connecting to the device update service on the Lync Server (internally or externally) then this status window would report a connection failure.

To further validate that this device was successfully connected to the update service the server’s device log can be checked for any entries associated with the device.

If a new update is available LPE devices will wait for a certain period of inactivity on the phone and then automatically download, waiting again for more idle time before rebooting itself to complete the process.

VVX devices operate in the same way but also offer two important improvements: (1) the inactivity timeout is configurable and (2) when a new update is available the device will prompt the user to install it immediately if desired, or defer if not.

The only differences are how the updates are packaged and where they are stored on the server.
