A new week has come and with it a new SP for System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager.

Microsoft: we are happy to let you know that System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1 and System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP2 are now generally available and can be downloaded on the Microsoft Evaluation Center.

These service packs deliver full compatibility with existing features for Windows 10 deployment, upgrade, and management.

Also included in these service packs are new hybrid features for customers using System Center Configuration Manager integrated with Microsoft Intune to manage devices.

Some of the hybrid features that you can expect to see are conditional access policy, mobile application management, and support for Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP).

You can view the full list of hybrid features included in these service packs here: What’s New in System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1

NOTE: that both the System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1 and System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP2 have the same package for upgrade. But from a binary perspective, System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1 and System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP2 are exactly the same. Guess this is a mishap by Microsoft and will be addressed soon.

 

So what should you do ? Well i recommend always to be updated to latest version and considering this has been out for some time and no major post regarding potential bugs introduced here, i strongly recommend to upgrade.

Here is a guide for you with step by step lines on how to properly upgrade ConfigMgr to SP1

The guide is from Cortech so there is no source more reliable than that.

Happy patching !
