Update SCCM 2012 to SP1 CU1

Purpose: You have installed SCCM SP1, but its not up to date anymore, Aieee! Do something again!

So you thought you are safe now that the SP1 is installed and all your worries will go away? Wrong! SP1 created some new issues and did not fix all the original issues you might have had with the system. So I urge you to update SCCM 2012 SP1 to the following Comulative Update 1, which will help you to grow less grey hair. With all these different issues, there will most likely be updates more in the future, but do not wait for SP2 to appear, it could take a while.

Bug fixes in Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 CU1 (Includes download link)

Updating the system to SP1 CU1 is far less ambitious task than updating the system to SP1 was. However, you might need to do some requirement tasks and post installation actions with the CU1 as well. Just as a heads up: The CU1 is not a major version update, and finding the new version numbers across the system can prove difficult. I will post here where you can find each one of them. NOTICE: Even if this is a small update, it does make changes to the actual database. Therefore you might want to backup (and test the backup) again before proceeding with the changes.

Installing SCCM SP1 CU1

Great! You are just about ready to start. Hit the ConfigMgr2012-SP1-CU1-KB2817245-X64-ENU.exe in your SCCM 2012 SP1 CU1 installation media (you extracted this file from the download you did from microsoft hotfix site) and continue the installation. You can use the pictures below to see how it should look. This installation will take far less time than the SP1 installation did.

Now you should be interested of how to validate that the version has updated?

SCCM 2012 Version is: 5.00.7711.1000
SCCM 2012 SP1 Version is: 5.00.7804.1000
SCCM 2012 SP1 CU1 Version is: 5.00.7804.1202

Normally, you can see the version you are running from the Admin Console by navigating here:
\Administration\Overview\Site Configuration\Sites (and take properties upon your site).
However, the CU1 update is not strong enough update to change the version in this view at all.

However, you can see your environment Comulative Update -level from the registry (should you have a need to create a collection or a query based on this installation, you can use this as a reference point):

And finally, you can see the Comulative Update also from the Windows Server Programs “View Installed Updates” as a normal update:
