System Center Configuration Manager SCCM

So Microsoft have today released version 1802 of Current Branch for Configuration Manager. This is great and there are some features in this upgrade that we are looking forward to trying out.

But, on the slow ring, it could be a few days or weeks until it drops into your Configuration Manager Console. That’s bad. So, what can you do if you simply must have the update NOW!

Well, head over to the TechNet Gallery and download the fast ring script which will give you immediate access to the upgrade. The link is available here:


Download ConfigMgr 1802 Fast Ring Script


Once you have downloaded it, you should then open up a PowerShell command prompt and then run the following command:

EnableFastUpdateRing1802.ps1 CM01


  • CM01 = your site server name

This will then very quickly run through the fast ring script. You should then go into your Configuration Manager Console and click on the Administration ribbon and then onto the Updates and Servicing branch:

SCCM - 1802 Upgrade Released & How to get it now! 1

Then go ahead and click on the Check for updates button on the top ribbon bar and then also click the Refresh button:

SCCM - 1802 Upgrade Released & How to get it now! 2

You should then notice that the update will start downloading:

SCCM - 1802 Upgrade Released & How to get it now! 3

Once that has completed it will change to Ready to install:

SCCM - 1802 Upgrade Released & How to get it now! 4

You can then go ahead and run your Prerequisite check and if all comes back good, go ahead and install the update.
