Client Upgrade on Primary Site Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • This should be an easy question but I really want confirmation.

    When you perform a Cumulative Update does the Update upgrade the client also on your primary site server?  If so do when you create a device collection for x86/x64 clients do you exclude the site server from getting push?

  • Hi,

    No the SCCM Client stays at version 5.00.7958.1000 on the primary site.

    If you wanted you could upgrade the SCCM client on the primary manually by running.

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\hotfix\KB2970177\Client\x64\configmgr2012ac-r2-kb2970177-x64.msp and then exclude it from the below collection or let it go out automatically.

    This is from an older version but the principle is still the same.

    You can go straight from R2 to CU2. You do not need to install CU1 first.

  • Why do you want to exclude the site server from being updated? It's perfectly fine to update that client too.

  • I don't want to exclude the server from being upgraded.  I just want to make sure it is done right... There are 4 packages made.

    Console Update

    Server Update

    x64 Client Update

    x86 Client Update

    After I run the actual update on my Primary Site Server the registery shows CU2 so am I done with the primary site server?  And then only need to update machines that have console and agents?
