Upgrade SCCM 2012 to SP1

Recently I’ve been involved in upgrading one of our customer’s CCM setup to SP1 and here is my notes regarding the upgrade:

First (On each site):

  • Disable the maintenance tasks Delete Aged Client Operations and Delete Aged Discovery Data (Sites -> select site -> on top corner site maintenance).
  • Back the CCM MSSQL databases.
  • MSSQL Version should be 10.50.4000.0 (SP2) if MSSQL 2k8 is used.
    • Check the MSSQL version by opening the management studio and run the following query:
      • SELECT SERVERPROPERTY(‘productversion’), SERVERPROPERTY (‘productlevel’), SERVERPROPERTY (‘edition’)
  • If a new user is given rights for the installation, make sure the user is a sysadmin on the MSSQL server.

Second (On each site):

  • Uninstall Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) and reboot.
  • Install Windows Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) 8.
  • Install WSUS 3.0 SP2 Update KB2720211.
  • Install WSUS 3.0 SP2 Update KB2734608.
  • Install .NET Framwork 4.0 and  Windows Management Framework 3.0 (KB2506143).
  • Download the prerequisites \SMSSETUP\BIN\X64\setupdl.exe <downloadpath>.

Third:

  • Install the upgrade on CAS, then on primary sites and eventually on secondary sites.
  • While the setup runs keep viewing the logs via CMTrace to keep track of things.
  • Open the console and verify that the site is now at build 7804.
  • Enable the maintenance tasks Delete Aged Client Operations and Delete Aged Discovery Data (Sites -> select site -> on top corner site maintenance).
  • Client upgrades: Sites -> Hierarchy settings -> Enable Automatic Client Upgrades.

Have fun ;-)
