  • Why have you uninstalled it? A upgrade to SP1 and R2 would have been possible ...
    Installing the client: it depends. You can use whatever method (GPO, startup script, client push etc) to install the R2 one. It will uninstall the RTM one automatically.

  • Not sure what article you are searching for, but I'm assuming the official statement about the upgrade of the clients. That statement can be found here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj822981.aspx#BKMK_UpgradeR2Checklist

    Quote: When you upgrade a client, the current client software is uninstalled and the new client software version is installed. To upgrade clients, you can use any method that Configuration Manager supports.

  • Hi,

     Currently, the clients cannot accept the policies from SCCM 2012 R2 MP, so Push installation, GP installation and manual installation should work. After upgrade, the GUID of clients will remain.
