My stance on SCCM updates, following ConigMgr 2012 SP1’s initial release, is a cautious one to say the least.
Today we completed the updgrade of our ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 envronment to CU3, facilitating the following capabilities for Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2:
- Endpoint Protection
- Software Deployment
- OSD (http://blogs.technet.com/b/configmgrteam/archive/2013/10/21/how-to-enable-windows-8.1-deployment-in-sc-2012-configmgr-sp1-cu3.aspx)
Fully appreciate ConfigMgr 2012 R2 is now out, give it 6 weeks and we’ll no doubt deploy – however CU3 at least gets the Surface Pro 2 trial moving forwards, and gives bretahing space for authenticode issues and the like!
In our multi-site (Primary/Secondary) environment the update installed without anyhickups – backups/offline-snapshot people, just to be sure!
