Updated SCCM 2012 R2 clients version in Admin Console

In this case I was manually updating SCCM R2 clients on some Windows based servers with latest rollup update, but the newly (updated) SCCM client version for those servers was not refreshed (reported) in SCCM 2012 R2 Admin console. The reason for this behavior was that the SCCM client versions are reported by heartbeat discovery. Default value for heartbeat discovery is 7 days.

In order to make SCCM clients to report client version as soon as possible there are two options:
  • Lowering the default value of 7 days for heartbeat discovery, or
  • Manually trigger Discovery Data Collection Cycle action from client
Update the collection membership and new version of SCCM client will be shown in SCCM admin console.
