Cumulative Update 3 (CU3) for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1 is now available as a hotfix download from KB 2882125. This update contains fixes for various issues, and an updated version of the Endpoint Protection client, and adds support for Windows 8.1-based clients.

SQL Script changes with CU3

CU3 introduces a new version of a SQL CLR stored procedure. As a result of this change, some additional steps are required when running the update.sql script manually. These steps are not required if you choose to allow the cumulative update installer to perform the database update.  In order to manually run the update.sql script after CU3 has been installed, perform the following steps:

If the site database is installed on the site server, use the steps below.

  1. Locate the updated binx64MessangeHandlerService.dll file on the site server
  2. In the update.sql file, which is in the hotfixKB2882125 folder under the Configuration Manager installation folder, search for:
    [[SMS_ROOT]]binx64MessageHandlerService.dll
    Using a text editor replace this with the full path to the file, such as
    C:Program FilesMicrosoft Configuration Managerbinx64MessageHandlerService.dll
  3. Run the update.sql script while connected to the site database in SQL Management Studio

If the site database is installed on an instance of SQL remote from the site server, use these steps instead.

  1. Locate the updated binx64MessangeHandlerService.dll file on the site server
  2. Copy that file and update.sql script to a temporary location on the SQL server, such as D:Temp
  3. In the update.sql file on the SQL server, search for:
    [[SMS_ROOT]]binx64MessageHandlerService.dll
    Replace this with the full path to the file, such as
    D:TempMessageHandlerService.dll
  4. Run the update.sql script
  5. Remove the manually copied script and DLL from the SQL server

As with other cumulative updates, this release is optional and does not affect the product support lifecycle.
