What Configuration Manager CU to install

As System Center Configuration Manager 2012 has been in the game for a while id thought it be worthwhile mentioning what the current levels 2014-01-29 are. *Updated 2014-04-06*

System Configuration Manager 2012 RTM

System Configuration Manager 2012 SP1

System Configuration Manager 2012 R2

Worth mentioning is the upgrade from SP1 to R2, at first there was an issue that the changes introduced in CU3 for SP1 had changes for Pull Distribution Points that where not included in the R2 release. Microsoft corrected this by updating its prerequisite files. So if you do like many others downloads them once and keep them for every install you do you should really download the prerequisite files again and keep doing that on a regular basis or for every install you do.
