Packages resides on HotFix Folder from your Configmgr Drive.image

Distribute these packages to selected distribution points,monitor the status(distmgr.log,sender.log and pkgxfermgr.log) .

Note :This patch will not install automatically on the Configmr clients, You should distribute the patch (msp file) to all existing clients in the environment.

We will now create collection for each update and then deploy the patch.

    Hi Your blogs are good, I like it.
    I need to advice from you.
    My system center configuration manager just 2013.
    What s the upgrade procedure for SCCM 2012 SP1 CU 3
    And hope SCCM 2012 R2 is not good for production use.

    Thanks

      there is no special instructions to upgrade from CM12 SP1 to CU3.close the console and start installing the CU3 hotfix.just follow the instructions step by step what it takes you.

  2. Scott says:

    Great Post! However, the SQL query for the Console Update is missing "select" at the beginning of the query.

  3. bandara says:

    My Question here can I directly upgrade it to SCCM 2012 to SCCM 2012SP1 CU3

  4. Joe Heaton says:

    I copied and pasted the first query, for the console update, and when I clicked ok after pasting in the Query Statement, I got an error:

    This query has a syntax error. Are you sure you want to save it?

    Did I do something wrong?

    My system is at SP1, with no CU installed.

  5. Joe Heaton says:

    Thanks, the quotes were exactly the problem.

    Another question, when you push the new, updated client, will that also update the SCEP that's installed, or, if none installed, will it install the new SCEP? I'm trying to get some Server 2012 R2 boxes protected.

  8. Dean says:

    This is a great help! Thank you, I am always nervous about using specific versions in my queries. I prefer to use a query with a minimum version and a "less than" or "greater than" condition. but multi-part versions can cause some real pain with that as well! Just something that has burned me in the past, and something to watch out for as the product moves ahead! Thanks again!
