SCCM 1910 Step-by-Step Upgrade Guide

The Configuration Manager 1910 update is out. You can begin upgrading to SCCM 1910 on sites that run version SCCM 1806, SCCM 1810, SCCM 1902 or SCCM 1906.

The Configuration Manager 1910 update is available as an in-console update. There is NO SCCM 1910 baseline version.

I know it should be called as Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager 1910. This is because Configuration Manager is now part of Microsoft Endpoint Manager. Microsoft will be integrating Microsoft Intune,Configuration Manager, and more into a single solution called Microsoft Endpoint Manager. Read more about it here.

Configuration Manager 1910 Servicing Support

SCCM 1910 is the third current branch release of this year. I am excited to see what would be the next version of Configuration Manager. When you see a new update version, it remains in support for 18 months from its general availability release date.

With Configuration Manager 1910 update, the product will receive Security and Critical updates for first four months. And for next 14 months, it will receive only Security Updates. The below SCCM servicing support pic should give you a clear idea of servicing phases.

SCCM 1910 Upgrade Prerequisites Checklist

Here are some of the prerequisites checklist that you need to look into before you install Configuration Manager 19010 update.

  • Update 1910 for Configuration Manager current branch is available as an in-console update. There is NO SCCM 1910 baseline version.
  • To apply this update on your sites, ensure you have installed SCCM version 1806 or later.
  • If you’re running a multi-tier hierarchy, start at the top-level site in the hierarchy. First perform the CAS upgrade, later you can begin the upgrade of each child site. Complete the upgrade of each site before you begin to upgrade the next site.
  • Ensure that you are running a supported Operating System and SQL Server version.
  • If you’re running SCCM version older than 1806, check the SCCM In-place upgrade paths.

SCCM 1906 Hotfixes

After the release of SCCM 1906, there were several hotfixes released. Probably you may not have installed any or installed just few hotfixes. I often get this question in comments section whether to install these hotfixes first and then install SCCM 1910 or can we skip these hotfixes.

Answer – A hotfix contain either one individual fix or a bundle (a rollup of fixes). All the hotfixes released for Configuration Manager 1906 will be included in SCCM 1910. So if you see any hotfixes in your console while installing version 1910, you may skip them and directly install 1910 update.

This is a semi unrelated issue. I have 2 distribution points that are supposed to be synced with our onsite sccm server. Everything seems to be working correctly except when we have deployed images to pcs at this site and they are getting Windows 10 Education. Every image onsite is Windows 10 Enterprise. Do you have any idea why this might happen?
