SCCM 2012: Update to SP1 (RTM)

I am updating my SCCM 2012 RTM to 2012 SP1 (it is RTM’d couple of days ago and available for MSDN subscribers)

UPDATE: Official Microsoft Guide:

1. Install two WSUS pre-requisites (if you use SUP): and

2. Reboot the server

Update: Uninstall WAIK (recommended by

3. Install Windows 8 ADK (Deployment Tools, Preinstallation media, User State Migration Tool)

3. Start setup


Click Install and Yes to confirm. Click Next to start Upgrade config

Verify “Upgrade…” radio button is selected and click Next


Enter your Product key and click Next


Accept License Terms, Next. Check all three checkboxes and Next to accept additional License Agreements.

On the next page either put a location to download the produc pre-requisites or point setup to a folder with pre-downloaded pre-req’s (like in my case). Next


On next two pages select Language for server and Clients



Confirm Upgrade


Fix errors if you have them. In my case I missed ADK on my second DP Smile

I have two warnings left, can continue


Monitor installation using CMTrace (I had a bunch of SQL connection errors at the beginning)



Upgrade finished


Note: for some reasons my SCCM Console was not reinstalled (but disappeared from Start-Programs). I uninstalled the old console from Add/Remove Programs and installed the new version  from AdminConsole.msi in D:\Distrib\Downloads\SCCM2012SP1\SMSSETUP\BIN\I386 (or splash.hta from root of the installation media)


Console is ok now:
