    Brilliant - I wish I had found this before is started using SOLUS3 - we use SCCM so were looking to see if this could be done. Have you had any feedback on this - issues that I need to look out for? Thanks

    SP1 itself didn't seem to create an upgrade client - the cumulative update patches did, but not SP1 itself - so I've just set the heirarchy to auto-update and created some Device Collections based on your query above to monitor it.

    I did manage to create a package for an SP1 upgrade, using the package definition and the CCMSETUP.exe file from [programDir]\ClientUpgrade, but it didn't install automatically, only if I manually went to a machine and clicked retry.

    System Center, always fun and games, huh? Been on a wild goose chase this already morning as somehow, SCCMAdmin had been removed from the SMS Admin group, so I couldn't open the console anymore - cue lots of rooting around in WMI thinking that was the cause. Oh what fun.

    @sonofsanta i used the package that is already in SCCM to upgrade the client. I didn't use an MSI or anything.

    What file should I be pushing out for the manual upgrade? (I'd like to keep an eye on it with the reporting)

    I'm guessing [SCCMinstallDir]\Client\x64\client.msi - or should I be doing ccmsetup.exe from the level above that, and if so, any flags I should know of?

    EDIT: scratch that, finally found the relevant TechNet page - you can never get the answer to these things until you've already opened your mouth and looked stupid, can you...

    @sccmlovehate glad that i could help. Microsoft support didn't have a clue what was going on either so you are not alone. It took me a good while to fix it.

    FN-GM,

    Thanks very much for posting about SCCM on Server 2012! You just save me another week of pain and suffering. We are running SCCM on Server 2008R2 but we recently upgraded our main DP to Server 2012. We had 5 out of 30 brand new machines throw the hash error (0x80091007) and we could not figure out what the heck was going on. I just flipped the NIC over to VMXNET3 and we are all good now. Thanks again!!

    Is there a SP1 standalone installer for this or do we need to download the full 2012+SP1 ISO?

    Im trying to upgrade SCVMM for example using the full ISO and its saying i need to do an uninstall then reinstall the new version.

    Is it the same for SCCM?

    Ours is a Sonic Wall SSL-VPN 4000 which alows for way more users simultaneously connecting than we ever get but the Head at the time insisted on it thinking that maybe three clesses would try to login remotely at the same time!. I have never seen more than 12 users on at once!

    It was supplied as a remote access solution by a company but for some reason we did not buy the firmware upgrades which I regret now.

    Hi,

    In the job i work at one of the first jobs what’s to buy one. We purchased ours for £1,800. This included the physical box, licenses, support for 3 years and 3 years upgrades. We got them from Kelway. I am not sure how much it would cost you to get the new firmware.

    What appliance do you have?

    Hi

    I have had Sonic Wall for about three years now and wondered how costly it is to get a firmware update. How or where do you go for the cheapest price on this. Our Sonic Wall SSL VPN box has been 100% reliable and used everyday, but I would like to improve access for Mac Users.

    Is there a way of getting the results back for an OU in Active Directory so rather than idividually targetting the machines we can pull a classroom list back?

    IIRC you need the Windows 7 RSAT installed before you have access to "netdom".
