No agents pending after SCOM 2012 SP1 (UR3) update?

You’ve got a MG with (hopefully) more than one MS and after updating the Management Servers the agents don’t appear under Pending Management so that you can approve the upgrade?

Maybe you’ve updated the first MS and it had no agents? In that case it is pretty easy: SCOM will only check the pending flag once per MG. No second chance. No way!

However, there is an easy workaround for that: simply apply the patch again. The easiest way (when you didn’t download but applied them with WSUS/SCCM/Windows Update) is to download it from here. Don’t forget to run the MSP from an elevated prompt.

Good luck!
