SCCM 2012 R2 CU5

Short but sweet…

System Centre COnfiguration Manager 2012 R2 CU5 has been released, and it is rather delicious! For me personally, it allegedly addresses an issue I have ben seeing, and in fact, quite possibly made Microsoft aware of via TechNet and our Microsoft Support Partner. Specifically:

Software distribution fails when the client cache is full and virtual applications have been deployed.

Errors that resemble the following are recorded in the Cas.log file on the client:

  • IsCacheCopyNeeded returned ‘true’ by {content id}

I see this on a lot of our domain PCs, which seemingly refuse to then do anything else for a sustained period of hours. I am crossing everything that can be crossed in the hope that this will fix things.

Here is the article.

The upgrade itself was easy. I applied the CU5 to the Site Server and servers running a console. As with CU4, I had to bounce the Distribution Points to get things working again; however once I know I need to do that, it’s a simple task. As with anything, when it goes wrong and you know how to rectify it, it’s really a problem. I did my clientpatch hack, as per my post here,

I’m staggering the rollout, and currently have around two thousand PCs reporting minor build .1604. No issues as yet…
