Cloud Connector Edition set automatic tenant update time windows

A very important task after installing a CCE (Cloud Connector Edition)

You must set a proper Update Time for your CCE Windows Updates und CCE Patching.

WARNING 1:
If you don't do this, at any point of time the CCE might start installation updates and will set you offline for the installation for up to 3hrs+.

WARNING 2:
You have to configure the UPDATE Window before you deploy the CCE!

NOTE:
The time zone is not configurable, but is tight to the Hyper-V host (the CCE location) defined in the windows host. Make sure the time zone setting are correct on the CCE!


First login in to your Office 365 Tenant

Import-Module skypeonlineconnector
$cred = Get-Credential
$Session = New-CsOnlineSession -Credential $cred -Verbose
Import-PSSession $session


Enable (Updates Windows)

You have to identify (name) and define a update windows

New-CsTenantUpdateTimeWindow -Identity AlwaysOn -Daily -StartTime 0:00 -Duration 24:00

You have to identify your CCE site and assign the update windows
The Update windows should be setup for both WindowsUpdates and CCE BitsUpdate

Set-CsHybridPSTNSite -Identity <SiteName> -OsUpdateTimeWindow @{add="AlwaysOn"} -BitsUpdateTimeWindow @{add="AlwaysOn"}


Disable (Update Windows)

Create a time window in which the update will not be applied:

New-CsTenantUpdateTimeWindow -Identity NeverOn -Monthly -WeeksOfMonth First -DaysOfWeek Sunday -StartTime 3:00 -Duration 0:0

Apply the new time window to your site:

Set-CsHybridPSTNSite -Identity <SiteName> -OsUpdateTimeWindow @{add="NeverOn"} -BitsUpdateTimeWindow @{add="NeverOn"}
