How to manually install SCCM 2012 R2 admin console

After you upgraded your ConfigMgr to the new Version you need to upgrade both the Clients and the deployed consoles for your IT staff.

Console upgrade

In the Installation Media go to SCCMISO]SMSSETUP\BIN\I386 and copy both “AdminConsole.msi” and “ConsoleSetup.exe” to an Application folder for deployment.

Folder

Then you need to create a package or application  with content to deploy the new console.


"ConsoleSetup.exe" /q TargetDir="%programfiles%\ConfigMgrConsole" EnableSQM=0 DefaultSiteServerName=FQDNSiteServer

1. create a new package, name it and define the source folder where you put the files in

SCCMR2ConsolePackage01

2. create a standard Programm

SCCMR2ConsolePackage02

3. configure the user experience

SCCM2012R2SP1AppConsole03

 

4. enter the installation program information

SCCMR2ConsolePackage03

Finish the wizard, distribute the package and deploy it to your clients.


 

Or you can create an application.

I won’t show the steps to create a  new application but you have to create a new deployment type “Script Installer”

1. create the deployment type, add the location to the folder you created earlier. then you need to define the

Installation program
"ConsoleSetup.exe" /q TargetDir="%programfiles%\ConfigMgrConsole" EnableSQM=0 DefaultSiteServerName=FQDNSiteServer
MsiExec.exe /X{7952AC6D-315A-4791-BDE3-0976D6E0AD72}

SCCM2012R2SP1AppConsole01

2.  define the deployment detection. I got that one from the AdminConsole.MSI.

3. Next,next…Finish

4. Distribute content and deploy it to your clients


Client Upgrade

To Upgrade the client you can simply go into the administration Tab -> Site Configuration – Sites and select hierarchy settings and select the days in which all client should be upgraded.

This will create a scheduled task on the client which will trigger the client upgrade within the given time period. You can also run this task manually to upgrade the client

TaskScheduler01

This setting will always upgrade the clients to the newest version after you install a new UR!

If you don’t want to do this, you have to create an upgrade package. These packages will be created by the UR package and will be available for deployment after you installed the next UR.

To monitor this you can create a collections with these queries

All SCCM Clients below Version 5.00. 8239.1000

select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System WHERE Client = 1 AND ClientType != 3 AND ClientVersion IS NOT NULL AND ClientVersion < '5.00. 8239.1000'

All SCCM Clients at or above Version 5.00. 8239.1000

select SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceID,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceType,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Name,SMS_R_SYSTEM.SMSUniqueIdentifier,SMS_R_SYSTEM.ResourceDomainORWorkgroup,SMS_R_SYSTEM.Client from SMS_R_System WHERE Client = 1 AND ClientType != 3 AND ClientVersion IS NOT NULL AND ClientVersion >= '5.00. 8239.1000'
