AACC - Microsoft Service Packs Compatibility List
 
Has anybody used one of the new 2015 Avaya Microsoft Service Packs Compatibility List spreadsheets?

The specific hotfixes are no longer listed on the monthly spreadsheets, are we now supposed to run Windows Update to install Microsoft Security updates, if not, how do we identify the security hotfixes applicable to our systems?

The FAQ tab on the spreadsheet makes little sense.

As the spreadsheet is only applicable to 6.4 SP14, how does a 6.4 SP13 customer know what Microsoft security updates are approved by Avaya?

It all seems incredibly vague considering we can potentially end up installing incorrect patches onto our system, leaving us with a broken and unsupported Contact Centre.

Please help Avaya, this isn't progress and it isn't really good enough.

Latest list is available here:
https://support.avaya.com/products/P...t-center/6.4.x
Select ‘Product Documents’
Select ‘Contact Center Portfolio Service Packs Compatibility’
=> This allows to install all published hotfix up to the 2nd Tuesday of the month where the document was published. For critical MS hotfixes released within this month there will be a separate notification (PSN).
It was verified on systems running AACC 6.4 SP14 only but also applies for older AACC software load line-ups.

Two questions hergenmuelle:

1) Document is where? Link takes me to AACC product page.

2) I've been told system must be on current SP level or Avaya doesn't vouch for compatibility with and applicability of Microsoft Windows updates, in other words: patch at your own risk.

Thoughts?
