INFO: Upgrading System Center 2012 to Service Pack 1

imageUpgrading your System Center 2012 implementation to Service Pack 1?   I received some information from our Technology Specialist, Justin Stanton that may help.

The first thing to know is that SP1 for System Center 2012 is not a complete reinstall nor is it a single installer. It is, in fact, a set of separate installers for each component in the suite.  (i.e. SP1 for Configuration Manager 2012, SP1 for Service Manager 2012, etc.). 

  • If you have an MSDN subscription, you can download each installer separately, just search for System Center SP1.
  • If you have a Volume License Agreement, you can visit the Licensing Service Center to download the products here.

It is however very important to understand the order in which components should be upgraded since some have dependencies on others. 

Here’s a few additional references that might be useful.

More is coming from the Partner & Solutions Blog regarding upgrading Operations Manager so stay tuned.
