Servicing the build server

Although we could use the same process to apply binary updates to the build server as we did on the development VMs (albeit using the command version), the build server is a little special.

The process of applying a build is that the environment (local packages folder and data) is restored from a backup and merged with objects from TFS. If we simply applied the update, the next build will, effectively, remove it.

Getting ready

You need access to an LCS project that allows the download of metadata hotfixes. LCS deployed VMs and Customer implementation LCS projects can do this.
