Configuration Manager 2012 Agent installation fails on a Management Point with CU3 installed

When attempting to install the Configuration Manager 2012 client on a site system hosting the management point (MP) role and that site system has CU3 installed, the installation will fail.

To work around this issue you would have to:

  1. Uninstall the MP role first.
  2. Install the Configuration Manager client
  3. Reinstall the MP role.

Hope this saves you some troubleshooting time!
