Upgrade SCCM 2012 RTM to SP1–no database connection (old Console)

I’ve upgraded the SCCM 2012 RTM installation to 2012 SP1 for a customer. After the successful upgrade, I started the console and was scared about the message –> no database connection!

After installing the new console on the server it was o.k… Smiley!

Don’t forget to install it… and create a new package for the console deployment!


Kind regards

    Thanks for sharing. does SP1 installation overwrite the collections which we created? all data will be available after SP1?

      The collection will not be overwritten when upgrading to SP1. ONLY if you have changed the default collections of SCCM, then it would be overwritten!

      But backup the system bevore upgrading! You never know…
