Has SCCM 2012 R2 CU5 been installed?

Cumulative Update 5 for System Center Configuration Manager 2012 R2 has been released https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/kb/3054451

Note that ConfigMgr 2012 R2 SP1 is expected next week, so you might just wait for that one instead of installing CU5.


So once again it’s time to take a closer look at how to determine the installation status of this cumulative update, this time for CU5.

After upgrading to System Center Configuration Manager 2012 R2 CU5, you will be able to identify the update as shown here.

The console reported version 5.0.7958.1501 before updating which is 2012 R2 CU4.


The Console update is also listed in Control Panel as an Installed Update.
