SCCM 2012 R2 CU3 – easier way of getting CU3 into your TS

While looking around today, I saw this

This method is much nicer than the “copy the patch over the call it in the sccm setup command line” method….

It is simply

  • Obtain the hotfix or CU you wish to include ( for CU3 – current at time of writing)
  • Create a “ClientPatch” directory under Clienti386 and Clientx64
  • Copy in the appropriate MSP’s for each platform
  • Update the package(s)

Apparently this method has been around for a while – but is unsupported.
