Cumulative Update 2 for System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2

As stated before, every quarter Microsoft will release a new set of patches and hot fixes for SCOM R2. This set will be put into a Cumulative Update. And every cumulative update will also contain the one before. Just a day ago a new Cumulative Update for SCOM R2 has been released, CU#2.

The release notes about CU#2, KB979257, describes this new CU in detail:

The CU refers to the same KB article as well:

Be wise and RTFM before applying this CU.

This CU can be downloaded from here. The earlier mentioned KB article also contains the installation instructions:

When you want to read about some thorough installation experiences, Kevin Holman has written a solid blog posting about it. To be found here. Combined with the earlier mentioned KB article you will get as much as good information as needed.

Soon enough I will share my personal update experiences.
