A supported update is available from Microsoft. However, this update is intended to correct only the problems that are described in this article. Apply this update only to systems that are experiencing the problems described in this article. This update might receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by these problems, we recommend that you wait for the next service pack that contains this update.

If the update is available for download, there is a "Hotfix download available" section at the top of this Knowledge Base article. If this section does not appear, contact Microsoft Customer Service and Support to obtain the update.

Note If additional issues occur or if any troubleshooting is required, you might have to create a separate service request. The usual support costs will apply to additional support questions and issues that do not qualify for this specific update. For a complete list of Microsoft Customer Service and Support telephone numbers or to create a separate service request, go to the following Microsoft website: Note The "Hotfix download available" form displays the languages for which this update is available.

Installation information

The PowerShell changes that are referenced in this article are contained in the Administrator Console update (Adminconsole.msi). The Administrator Console update is not automatically installed on a site server when the cumulative update setup wrapper (Updatesetup.exe) runs. The wrapper creates an additional installation package and program that must be run to update the Administrator Console.


To apply this update, you must have System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1 installed.

Restart information

You do not have to restart the computer after you apply this update.

Note We recommend that you close the Configuration Manager Administrator Console and any associated applications such as the Remote Control Viewer or Status Message viewer before you install this update.
You may be prompted to restart the computer to which the Administrator Console update is being applied if the Remote Control Viewer (CmRCViewer.exe) is being used during the update process.
This can be avoided by closing the Remote Control Viewer before you install the update, or by adding the REBOOT=ReallySuppress parameter to the update installation properties. 

Update replacement information

This update does not replace a previously released update.
