Lync Management Shell on Windows Server 2012 R2

I’m currently building a new test and demo lab for Lync Server 2013 based on virtual Windows Server 2012 R2 machines. I know that after installing the Lync Standard Edition Server the newest cumulative update should be deployed. This also needs some SQL database updates. After installing Lync RTM bits I updated using the brand new January 2014 updates and started Lync Management Shell to do the necessary database updates.

But nothing happened – the prompt in Lync Management Shell did not appear, ever after waiting for a very long time! Asking via Twitter I got the suggestion from @MKressmark to load the Lync modules in a normal Powershell session. This worked and I was able to run all database update commands.

Interestingly now also the normal Lync Management Shell came up as usual!
