  • To start a new instance of Microsoft Silverlight, clear the browser cache in Silverlight, and then restart Silverlight.

  • Do not install this update rollup package immediately after you install the System Center 2012 R2 server. Otherwise, the Health Service state may not be initialized.

  • If User Account Control is enabled, run the .msp update files from an elevated command prompt.

  • You must have System Administrator rights on the database instances for the Operational Database and Data warehouse to apply updates to these databases.

  • To enable the web console fixes, add the following line to the %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\web.config file:

    <machineKey validationKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" decryptionKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" validation="3DES" decryption="3DES"/>


    Note Add the line under the <system.web> section, as described in the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

  • The fix for the data warehouse BULK insert commands timeout issue described in Update Rollup 1 for System Center 2012 R2 Operations Manager adds a registry key that can be used to set the time-out value (in seconds) for the data warehouse BULK insert commands. These are the commands that insert new data into the data warehouse.

    Note This key must be manually added on any management server on which you want to override the default BULK insert command timeout.

    Registry location:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft Operations Manager\3.0\Data WarehouseDWORD name: Bulk Insert Command Timeout Seconds
    DWORD Value: 40

    Note Set this value in seconds. For example, for a 40-second time-out, set this value to 40.

  1. Install the update rollup package on the following server infrastructure:

    • Management server or servers

    • Gateway servers

    • Web console server role computers

    • Operations console role computers

  2. Apply SQL scripts (see installation information).

  3. Manually import the management packs.

  4. Apply the agent update to manually installed agents, or push the installation from the Pending view in the Operations console.
