Please refer to our new Blog Post about including Cumulative Updates:
In this post, I would like to show, how to integrate the Client hotfix cumulative update 1 in the operating System deployment Task sequence. First, CU1 is released and it will create update packages for Site Server, console and client (x64 & x86) installations when you apply this cumulative update to your System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1 Environment.
In SCCM 2007 an hotfix usually copied the patchfiles inside the existing Client Installation package Directory (<sccm install Directory>Client). This no longer happens with SCCM 2012, so you can modify the built-in package, or create an newone. I decided to create a new SCCM Client package, here is what i’ve done:
1) Take all files from <sccm install Directory>Client and copy it to your package:
2) Copy the files from the hotfix/cu into a subfolder, I just named it “Patch”:
4) Use the new package in your Task sequence
Click on browse, and chose your newly created SCCM Client Package:
And add the PATCH property to your Installation properties. I’am using the following command:
PATCH="%_SMSTSMDataPath%OSD<YOUR PACKAGE ID>Patchx64configmgr2012ac-sp1-kb2817245-x64.msp"
In earlier Versions, Microsoft does not recommend using the “%_SMSTSMDataPath% variable (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977384/en-us), but I never experienced a Problem with that.
