OPINION: Update SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 to the latest CU3 or go to 1511?

03/06/2016 1858 views
Just looking for some feedback from SCCM users that may have taken the plunge to version 1511.   A recent update to SCCM2012 R2 SP1 came out (Link Below) and I was thinking about applying that or just going to version 1511

SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 CU3 - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3135680

Since we are starting to migrate to Windows 10 it seems SCCM 1511 is focused on that but I have heard that there are some issues that could make it a pain to work with.

I know this is old but if you have not already upgraded wait until Server 2016 gets released as there is going to be another Full release of ConfigMGR which is another upgrade so go to R2 SP1 CU3 instead as there is basic support for Win10.

Otherwise if you have upgraded feel free to ignore me :)

  • I have not upgraded but I do not think we will upgrade to Server 2016 this year. I work in education and I school is almost out so I plan on upgrading to 1511 and then to 1602 or whatever the latest is in a couple weeks. Then maybe next year over spring break or summer break upgrade to server 2016 and SCCM 2016 or whatever they call it.
    • Sounds like a plan... Seen a few people upgrade last month to the current branch and they are happily doubling work to do full install again end of year. Some people it makes sense to do others its a struggle (I have to do it out of hours when sleep is a priority)
      • Yeah, We have a lot coming down this summer. We are going One2One with devices with our students so that means 700+ new devices this year and every year for the next few years. To accommodate all that we are having a complete wireless infrastructure overhaul and network backbone upgrade to 10Gbit. So that on top of a Windows 10 roll out should keep me very busy.
Before you upgrade make sure your up to speed with the 2016 licensing changes
