SCCM 2012 SP1 Error connecting console after upgrade to SP1

I decided to upgrade SCCM 2012 to SP1. The upgrade went thru with no issues.

However when i tried opening SCCM 2012 Management console Iwould get an error connecting to SCCM site.

I looked in the event viewer and saw the following error:

Description = “Please upgrade your Admin Console to newer version”;
Operation = “ExecMethod”;
ParameterInfo = “SMS_Identification”;
ProviderName = “WinMgmt”;
StatusCode = 2147749889;

Which led me to the conclusion that there must be a seperate intall for the management console. Opened the install splash screen and saw the option to “Install Configuration Manager Console”.


Click that option and install the new console.

All is good and working now.
