Customers deploying Lync Server 2010, Office Communications Server 2007 R2, and Office Communications Server 2007 will encounter a service pack update for Windows Server and Microsoft SQL Server database software used in the deployment. But will this be supported in your deployment?

The answer is yes. We will support any service pack beyond what we documented as the minimum required for support.  

Communications Server 2007 R2 shipped with support for the following operating systems and databases.

Supported Windows Server Operating Systems

  • Windows Server 2008 Standard or Windows Server 2008 Enterprise

  • Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard x64 with Service Pack 2 (SP2) or Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise x64 with Service Pack 2 (SP2)

  • Windows Server 2003 Standard x64 with SP2, or Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 with SP2

    Supported Back-End Server Databases

    • SQL Server 2008 (64-bit or 32-bit)

    • SQL Server 2005 with SP2 (64-bit or 32-bit)

    Since that time, Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2 for Windows Server 2008 and Service Pack 3 and Service Pack 4 for SQL Server 2005 were released. Each of these service packs is supported for Communications Server 2007 R2. Future service packs will also be supported.
