System Center 2012 SP1 RTM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am deploying management servers for System Center 2012 that will be running Windows Server 2012, and I needed to know if System Center 2012 SP1 has gone RTM yet. I keep running searches on the Internet and keep coming up with the CTP2, and as this is something I am needing to put in for a client, I don't want them on beta software. If it still has not RTMed yet, does anyone know when we can expect the RTM to come, I was thinking that it was supposed to be with Server 2012, but I am not finding any resources. And to just clarify, I need to install with SP1 already on the system from a clean install state is more what I am looking for. Any help with this would be great.

  • No, it is not RTM yet.

    However, yesterday the BETA of SP1 was released.  You can only test that in a lab environment however, with the full and complete understanding that more than likely you'll be destroying your lab when the real SP1 is released, and recreating it.

    You also can't upgrade (if you have one) your existing CTP2 lab to SP1 Beta--it's a complete reinstall.  Remember, this is for lab environments only, and is very much a beta; for geeks like us to play with.  It's a beta release for a reason--not meant for production.

  • Hi All,

    Is it possible to install SC SP1 beta, and then, when the RTM is released uninstall the beta and then reinstall the RTM ? I'm asking the question specially for VMM 12.

  • This forum is for ConfigMgr 2012 related questions only (and it won't be supported to upgrade SP1 beta to RTM; uninstall also does not work).

  • Hi JeffBothel,

    RTMs typically represent feature-complete products, although  the final "general availability" release of System Center 2012 SP1 is  scheduled for early January.

    Few notes to make the upgrade path crystal clear:

    •         General Availability is targeted for early January.
    •         Upgrade from Sp1 Beta is only supported for TAP customers who installed RC.
    •      Non-TAP customers will only be able to upgrade from DPM 2012 RTM (+ qfe's) to DPM 2012 SP1 RTM.
    •      There is no upgrade path from BETA Sp1 to RTM Sp1, you must reinstall DPM 2012 RTM, then upgrade to SP1 RTM.

    Technet content will be updated to include new supported workloads in SP1 of Exchange 2013 and Sharepoint 2013.
