Deploy 12.1 RU2 from a SEPM running 12.1 RU1??

Created: 14 Jan 2013 • Updated: 16 Jan 2013 | 5 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Can someone tell me if on a 12.1. RU1 Manager if you can deploy a 12.1 RU2 installation package from it? Or can you only deploy the RU2 package from an RU2 manager??

I'm basically looking to get RU2 on a few Windows 8 users but trying to see if I can do it without having to upgrade the SEPM to RU2.

Well yes I understand that it can be managed from the older console, that far I have gotten. But if I wanted to create an installation package for RU2 from the RU1 console, is THAT possible??

Ok great I think I have it figured out. Except my issue now is that I uploaded the incorrect client package and now I cannot remove what is there. I keep getting the error "this is the latest package. You cannot delete it".

Any ideas on how to manually remove a bad client install package?
