Resolutions to the following issues are also included in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1.

  • Setting a schedule in the future for a Software Updates deployment is working now as intended fixing an issue where TSInstallSWUpdate would previously stall and time out.
  • The table ClientModeReadiness is now fully replicated. This fixes a previous issue where the report “Count of clients capable of HTTPS communication” would not return data when run on the CAS or would only return data for a particular primary server the report was run from.
  • Installing a remote distribution point and specifying a local site system installation account, as opposed to a domain account, now no longer creates an untrusted login error.
  • File names with a hash mark (#) are now properly encoded during download.
  • Configuration Manager sites can now be used to back up a Remote SQL Server using the UNC path.
  • In System Center 2012 Configuration Manager RTM, large database modifications included in a single transaction sometimes caused the replication system to take a long time to extract the change and send it over to another site. In SP1, large modifications are no longer allowed in single transaction.
  • When using a variable list to dynamically install a list of applications within a task sequence, if one of the applications cannot be installed because the content is unavailable, policy provider no longer blocks and prevents all other applications from being installed.
  • Task Sequences no longer experience significant processing delays or time outs due to large numbers of install software steps within the sequence when clients have slow or poor connections to the management points.
