Also, check out the SCCM 2012 SP1 to R2 upgrade checklist here

New Issue :- SMSExec crashes after modifying the Maximum Number of Retries setting in SCCM ConfigMgr 2012 R2. When we change the maximum number of retries less than the default value (100 retries) then the package replication will fail, also  SMSExec will crash. Awaiting for hotfix soon 🙂

  1. Hi,
    the Update 2913703 is for SP1 Cu3..

  2. Oliver says:

    Hi, Update KB2910552 superseededs KB2905002 but there is no hint if you still need to use the Patch= command within task sequnences as described in the superseeded article.

  3. Anoop says:

    Hi Oliver ! – Hope, you’ve already applied http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2910552 then you can replace patch command with KB2910552. Also, remember the thumb rule, if we’ve a specified problem then only we need to install hotfixes.

  4. Oliver says:

    of course i follow the thumb rule … but as Microsoft itself says it´s superseeded i thought it is worth to mention it here too. 🙂

    Hey Anoop!
    I installed a clear SCCM R2 on my server, then i installed CU3 but still have a problem with slow downloads during OSD TS. Can you explain what to do – also install a 2905002 hotfix? If yes, is there necessity to patch client package with this hotfix?
