How can I upgrade to System Center 2012 R2 SP1 with MDT 2013 Update 1 integrated?

Recommended Posts

Excellent post thanks, helped me with my upgrade.

 

great to see so much assistance on SCCM for what would be a quite complex upgrade.

 

A couple of stumbling points for me, I had officescan and that caused an error on the upgrade so had to disable that. This then cause the site to go into warning so I could'nt upgrade to CU1.

Thank you for the excellent walkthrough! It is very nice to have a guide to use during this process! My bootimages did not get updated during this process. I used the directions http://www.scconfigmgr.com/2014/02/28/default-boot-images-was-not-updated-after-a-configmgr-2012-r2-upgrade/ to get them updated, but I am not clear what causes the images to be skipped!? I also somehow missed the USMT update. I was able to update my USMT package manually, and all appears to be OK; I was just wondering if you had any insight as to why I might have had those two issues.

 

Again, thank you for the guide!

the configmgrsetup.log should give you some clues, it's in the root of C:\ on the site you do the upgrade on, does it reveal anything ?

Great guide just a question regarding post upgrade

 

Does the console need to be updated if its installed locally on workstations or published in citrix?

 

If so where would the new installation file be located after the upgrade has completed?

Hi,

Thanks for your great articles!

 

I have never worked on MDT before, so my question might be silly.

Here it is;

First I upgraded from 2012 R2 SP1 to 2012 R2 SP1 CU1

Uninstalled WAIK 8.1

Installed WADK10 as told

Installed MDT 2013 Update 1

Now I dont see the custom boot images (In your article they are named as MDT 2013 Boot Image) and thinking maybe I did something wrong.

Do we need to install MDT 2013 before installing MDT 2013 Update 1? Why I dont have those boot images?

Thanks

Hi,

Thanks for your great articles!

 

 

you are welcome !

 

Now I dont see the custom boot images (In your article they are named as MDT 2013 Boot Image) and thinking maybe I did something wrong.

 

 

you didn't do anything wrong, those images are old boot images i created years ago in my lab so are only specific to my lab, you didn't install MDT back then therefore you don't have them

 

Do we need to install MDT 2013 before installing MDT 2013 Update 1? Why I dont have those boot images?

 

 

no not necessary ! you don't have them as they are simply old boot images I created in previous releases of MDT

 

the only reason you'd have them show up is if you installed an older version of ADK/MDT and then went through MDT integration into ConfigMgr and then created MDT boot images and finally upgraded as described in this guide.

Hi, Niall, thanks for all your work.

 

I actually upgraded prior to reading your guide unfortunately and have noticed these two issues:

 

1) My USMT was pointing to the correct new datasource location but wasn't renamed like your post said. I simply renamed it, but the Win8.1 version is still installed. Am I good to go or do I need to fix this? You said I would have problems deploying Win10 if I don't uninstall USMT for Win8.1 - which I haven't. What should I do?

 

2) After upgrade my USMT and boot images are at version 10.0.10586.0 (although Control Panel says USMT is v10.1.10586.0!) but in your guide they are at version 10.0.10240.16384. Is this a problem? Why is this?

 

Thanks, again. John.

Excellent post as always.

 

I would suggest adding a note about the issues with the latest ADK v1511 tho. I've just hit this issue after installing it. Only workaround is to uninstall ADK v1511 and install the RTM version.

 

http://blogs.technet.com/b/configmgrteam/archive/2015/11/20/issue-with-the-windows-adk-for-windows-10-version-1511.aspx#pi168308=2

 

From Software Center, launch a task sequence that uses a Windows PE v10.0.10586 boot image. When the computer restarts into Windows PE, it will fail when “Initializing hardware devices” with the error: “Windows PE initialization failed with error code 0x80220014.”

 

At this time, we do not recommend that Configuration Manager customers use the 1511 version of the Windows 10 ADK.

 

Although I personally had this error in a build and capture pxe scenario, and others have reported it on bare metal installs too.

thanks

1. use the Windows 10 USMT package for your task sequences and you should be fine.

2. you've used the 1511 Windows 10 adk which is why your version is 10586, you can uninstall that ADK and use the original Windows 10 ADK instead which doesn't suffer from the issues mentioned in the post after yours.

Hi anyweb,

 

I have at the time the SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 with Bulid Number 8239 and Console version 5.0.8239.1000 and I have still installed ADK 8.1 and MDT 2013.

Could I install ADK 10 and MDT 2013 update1 on my system? If yes how can I do that? Is the following steps OK?

 

1) Uninstall ADK 8.1 and install ADK 10

2) Uninstall MDT 2013 and install MDT 2013 update 1

3) Install SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 CU1( KB KB3074857) and SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 CU2 (KB3100144)

 

Or should I install the new SCCM 1511 without to do above steps? I know I need for SCCM 1511 the ADK 10 and the CU1 and CU 2 are not mandatory).

 

Am I right?

 

Thanks for help

I would change it like so

 

1) Uninstall ADK 8.1 and install ADK 10, reboot

2) Upgrade MDT 2013 to MDT 2013 update 1

3) Install SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 CU1( KB KB3074857) and SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 CU2 (KB3100144)

 

once everything is in place, you can then consider doing an inplace upgrade to CM1511

Thanks for your replay. Could I not upgrade directly to the SCCM 1511? Then I dont need to install CU1 and CU2. Is that correct so? I am not sure but I think the Cumulative Update is not mandatory.

 

Thanks again

Hi,

I followed this guide and everything went as explained in the tutorial. Now under the MDTToolkit Folder I have folders such as Applications, Captures, Operatings Systems, Scripts, Out-of-Box-Drivers and so on. So I guess my deployment share is the folder named MDTToolkit. When I start Deployment Workbench, there is no deployment share connected to Deployment Workbench. Should I connect it manually, or can I just use MDTToolkit folder as my deployment share. I am asking this because in my OSD TS, I need to add a run command line step to add wifi profile and in "Start in" option I need to specify "%deployroot%\Applications\wifi.xml" location. I need to make sure my deployroot is the folder named MDTToolKit folder. I hope I could explained what I am trying to do.
