Post CU2 Updates Configuration Manager 2012 R2 When Using Intune and Unified Device Management

As you might have seen Cumulative Update 2 for Configuration Manager 2012 R2 has been released. After you’ve installed the CU you get a notice that there is an update to the Windows Phone 8.1 Intune extensions.

01 - NoticeFirst time you start the console after you’ve installed CU2 you’ll get the above notice telling you that there are new Intune Extensions.

Just as the popup mentions, we find the updates on the Cloud Services node in the Administration workspace (that is what the buttons on the far left bottom side is called in case you didn’t know – few does).

02 - Available Extension

Once on the right node you will potentially find TWO “Windows Phone 8.1 Extension”, that is because the extension has been updated. Also, it is a known bug that the new one might not have a a release date, in my demo environment none of them did. Double the fun. (In the above screenshot you see “Date Enabled”, not released).

Simply right click the extension and click Enable or use the ribbon like the mantra was during MMS a couple of years ago when ConfigMgr 2012 first was announced.03 - Enabling ExtensionNext, the extension will have Status “Enabling extension…” for a while (less than 5 minutes depending on your workload). After that they will be merged into one extension.

The next time you start the console you will see the below message.

04 - Notice 02

Simply let it do it’s job and you will finally see the message below once everything is done.

05 - Update Complete

You will at that time get all the improvements that came with ConfigMgr 2012 R2 CU2, such as improved policy deployment times for Windows Phone 8.1.

    I just updated to CU2 including all consoles, but haven’t received any notice that there is an update to the Windows Phone 8.1 Intune extensions when opening up the console. It’s also not listed under Extensions only the older one exists.

    • Tim Nilimaa says:

      Make sure that your console is updated (only the local one on the site server gets updated when you run the CU2 setup) and that your console has internet access.

      • Miha Pecnik says:

        Hi Tim, thank you for your reply. Console is 5.0.7958.1303, internet access is not a problem.

        I just recently (a day or two ago) enabled Intune, is it perhaps possible that I got the newer Extension before upgrading to CU2?

        Any recommendations as far as logs go, where should I check what’s happening.

        • Miha Pecnik says:

          I found out which logs to view by watching TechEd 2014 “Chris Green, Joey Glocke – Enrollment and Management of Mobile Devices with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager and Windows Intune”: AdminUI.ExtensionInstaller and FeatureExtensionInstaller.

          They are untouched since the original Intune implementation, CU2 didn’t add any information to those logs…so I’m probably still using the old extension.

          I rebooted the server multiple times, checked services, but can’t get this to update.
