Configuration Manager 2012 R2 CU4 to SP1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • There's lots of confusing information out there. A couple of basic questions:

    1) Will remote consoles need to run some kind of update?

    2) I assume this will come with a client upgrade? Does it need to be pushed out quickly?

    3) It looks like I will need to create another ISO for OSD once this is done. Is this correct?

    4) The only reason why I'm doing this is for SCEP support of windows 10. I'm assuming this service pack is required for that to happen? Also should this be anymore difficult to install than CU4?

    Thanks as always for any info!

  • #1: yes
    #2: there is a new client and it should be updated sooner or later
    #3: yes if you want it to contain the updated client (which would make sense)
    #4: test the upgrade of the database first (on a copy of the db). Make sure that you've got a working backup. Apply CU1 for R2SP1 (which was released today).

  • ... which is not a supported recovery scenario (especially not if there are multiple sites in the hierarchy and DRS replication comes into play).

  • You can install console manually or create a SCCM package to install the new console. The bits can be found on your site server: \Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\tools\ConsoleSetup.

    Here is an example of building a package to install the console. 

    You should also use consolesetup.exe, example syntax: 

    • consolesetup.exe /q EnableSQM=0 DefaultSiteServerName=SERVER.LOCAL

    On a side note, be aware of this after the upgrade.

  • My SCCM servers are on VM. I always do a snap shot first in case something happens.

  • Here's a question I haven't seen yet. How do you upgrade the remote consoles? Is there a file to run afterwards or something like that?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You can use the following command line to update a Configuration Manager console. This command line runs MSIEXEC on the computer and references the .msp file that the update bundle extracted on the site server: msiexec.exe /p \\<ServerName>\SMS_<SiteCode>\Hotfix\<KB Number>\AdminConsole\<Platform>\<msp> /L*v <logfile>REINSTALLMODE=mous REINSTALL=ALL

    For more information, please review the link below:
