Microsoft Launches CU1 For System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

Recently, Microsoft launched the Cumulative Update 1 (CU1) for System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager. However, this update comes as a surprise for most users as they were expecting the update in the second quarter of this year. This was stated by Brian Huneycutt, who works as a developer in Microsoft’s Configuration Manager Sustained Engineering team. The Cumulative Update 1 is now available for the users in the Microsoft Support site.

In the blog post, Huneycutt also stated that the organizations, who are looking to use the latest Cumulative Update 1, should apply it only "if you are encountering, or believe you may encounter, one of the issues fixed by current CU (or a prior one)." He explained that while applying CU1, the organizations would be able to set a new servicing baseline for Configuration Manager. It was also said that Microsoft has plans to ship its CUs for System Center every quarter now, which would definitely boost the working of the organizations.

With every new launch of the updated version, the Cumulative Update number will be changed. It is a fact that the software giant launches cumulative updates to fix problems that are reported by product users. Along with it, CU1 fixes a list of common issues experienced by the users, as it is mentioned in the Microsoft Support site article. The best aspect of the latest CU1 update is that the program doesn't require a reboot to take effect and instead the version, which will be launched after CU1 is applied, will be "5.0.7958.1203."

Here, the update focuses on fixing the Administrator Console problem, wherein the wrong software update gets selected by the user accidentally for an operating system image while sorting out a list. The CU 1 update also helps to fix the issues related to the Android devices, where after enrolling a device "in both Exchange Active Sync (EAS) and Mobile Device Management", the wrong software update takes place. There is also an additional feature in CU1 by the name "wake-up proxy feature," which enables the developers to identify client computers that appear to be in sleep mode.

According to the Microsoft tech support center, the company is ready to perform additional tests associated with the issues. The support also added that the users could wait for the next update to get launched if they are not getting affected by the issues such that the option of using CU1 becomes a must.
