Upgrading SCCM 2012 SP1 to SCCM 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are in the process of upgrading our current SCCM 2012 SP1 CU3 to SCCM 2012 R2 CU3, but I have some questions specific to the upgrade.

    Our current environment consist of 1 primary site, 2 management points, 6 Distribution Points. The primary site and SQL server are running on two separate Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise servers(both servers are virtualized).


    - Once we upgrade to R2, can we update to CU3 or do we need to install CU1 and CU2 first? I'm assuming we can

    - As for backup purposes, since these servers are virtualized I want to create snapshots of the primary and SQL server, but is this recommended practice? We backup the SCCM database regularly but wanted a quick solution to restore if things go wrong....
