    Any idea if you can upgrade SCCM 2012 SP1 Beta to SCCM 2012 SP1 RTM when that comes out?

    I upgraded an existing Site to play with it. It shows installed under “Add/Remove” programs, however there is no indications that anything SP1 has actually installed. None of the options in the console have changed such as MAC support etc.. When I try to uninstall SP1, it says “This isn’t really installed, want to remove it from the list?” Something didn’t work right.
