Noteworthy Updates: SQL 2008 R2 Support, CU6, Communications Server 2010, and Lync

Three recent OCS developments you should be aware of:

1] Communications Server 2007 R2 Does Not Support Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2

An official statement was released regarding OCS 2007 R2 not supporting SQL Server 2008 R2 for the back-end database. The primary reason is that OCS 2007 R2 hasn’t been tested with SQL Server 2008 R2 which contains some significant changes to functionality. For more information see:
