OPSMGR UR updates are now pushed using Microsoft Update (MU) but be warned, don’t get too lazy !

15 Oct

Hi really short post. I ‘m getting a lot of questions on the new Update Rollup delivery method. Microsoft is now using the long requested windows update aka Microsoft Update for patching most of the system center products. In case of operations manager 2012 you can find them in Microsoft Update under  Windows Updates –> Important updates.


I am not going to cover the installation process as described in the MS KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2756127

But what I wanted to point out is that since most of the people will use this MU updating method you still need to import the supplied Managementpack files. The KB documentation is somewhat unclear on this point. You can find the MP files after applying the patches under

%SystemDrive%\Program Files\System Center 2012\Operations Manager\Server\Management Packs for Update Rollups

So i f you didn’t know you will now

happy Scomming.
