System Center 2012 Update Rollup 1 - SCVMM & App Controller

Sneaking in quietly under the radar is the first update for the just released System Center 2012.

N.B. Don't be alarmed that there are updates available already for a product that has only been released, the development cycle and the aligning of the different System Center components mean that Virtual Machine Manager was slightly ahead in development which means they've been able to focus on updates and service packs already (a CTP Preview of SP1 is already available, see the bottom of this post)

This update focuses purely on Virtual Machine Manager, both server side and console as well as App Controller.

The knowledge base for Update Rollup 1 can be found here:

The downloads can be found on Microsoft Update or manually here:

Virtual Machine Manager Server Update (KB2663959)
Virtual Machine Manager Console Update (KB2663960)
Virtual Machine Manager Self-Service Portal Update (KB2663961)
App Controller Update (KB2677596)

In total we're looking at about 16 issues that have been fixed in this rollup.

It's also worth noting that after performing the server side update, the VMM agents on your hosts will also require updating.

To update the VMM agent on the managed computers, follow these steps:
  1. Open the VMM Console.
  2. Click Fabric, and then select Servers.
  3. Under Managed Computers, select the servers, and then click Update Agent
