ConfigMgr : SP1 CU3 / Windows 2012 R2 / 8.1 Support

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:

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!
