System Center 2012 SP1 Woes, Gotchas, and Workarounds

Microsoft System Center 2012 SP1 adds a bunch of new features to the Suite of products. However, there are a ton of reports coming in that SP1 is causing some frustrating issues in those companies that have decided to deploy it already.  This Wiki post serves to capture the issues in a central location to ensure everyone is aware of them and their potential workarounds until Microsoft releases fixes.

NOTE:  February 20, 2013 – Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 specific information has been moved to it’s own document here:  Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 Issues and Resolutions.  As we begin work with the other product groups within Microsoft concerning the issues around the other Suite products, we will move those issues to their own product-related doc, too.
