Problem:

Some of you might have tried to use the Scheduled updates feature in ConfigMgr 2012 SP1 to apply patches to a Windows Server 2012 Image.  Well i am sure you didn't expect to see that there wasn't any updates available when indeed several updates have been released for Server 2012 already. 

SMSProv.log

ExecQueryAsync: START select * from SMS_UpdateCategoryInstance where LocalizedCategoryInstanceName like '%Windows 8 Server%'      

Cause:

An incorrect reference in the ConfigMgr database pointing to %Windows 8 Server% was the culprit luckily the product group quickly resolved this issue with the below released hotfix.

Fix:

The Schedule Updates Wizard does not list content for Windows Server 2012 in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Service Pack 1
