    Be warned

    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...

    It'll be interesting to see how this latest generation of consoles match up as this is literally the closest they've ever been, architecture-wise, to x86 PCs. Historically though games consoles on launch have been massively more powerful and had much better graphics for the money than any equivalent PC of the time. I've owned a PC though every console generation from PSX though to the last gen and it's always amazed me how superior the console was next to PC's of the day. Even recently I recall playing games like PGR and Oblivion on my Xbox360 and there literally wasn't a PC you could buy (regardless of cost) that came close to it's 3D capabilities.

    I'd also disagree on the cost of consoles being more expensive. The PlayStation 3 was 425 on launch and even the xbox360 was 280. Going back further most Sony/MS/Nintendo consoles have been launched at around 300. When you take inflation into account modern consoles are actually cheaper! I'd agree that the games are starting to get worryingly expensive though I remember PlayStation 1 games retailing for 40 and that was 15 years ago so 50 RRP now isn't as bad as it could be. I still remember paying 65 for Streetfighter2 when it was released in 1993.

    Granted Steam sales make everything else look ridiculously expensive but honestly gaming has never been cheaper if you ask me!

    @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!!

    there is also a Microsoft tool called CSVDE which will allow you to create users from a CSV file but it's a bit long-winded to use...

    Looks good - however if you create a user in AD and give the profile and home folder values like
    \\SERVER\USERS\%USERNAME% and apply group memberships etc
    then when you need to create a new user, simply copy that user and it will do all the work for you

    I often get people coming to me all excited, saying "I just found out how to do this from blahdey-blah, I think it would make a really good IT tip!", at which point I have to tell them yes it would, and it did, 2 months ago when I sent it out.

    Hopefully some of you have found them useful this academic year, at least!
