have you ever tried to create a baseline based on a Software Update? Yes, it is really painful as there is no “good” way to do it.
based on this, i’ve created a powershell script as well as a console extension that will allow you to create a baseline based on a sw update group.
To do it, download the CreateBaseline zip file, extract and add the files to the following places:
RFL-SUP Deployment Group.xml to <CM12R2Console Installation Path)\XmlStorage\Extensions\Actions\2853886b-cce5-4ed4-af43-df69efb2e7d8 and <CM12R2Console Installation Path)\XmlStorage\Extensions\Actions\bb1a22d4-816f-438c-b6e7-51cbc210112f (change the CM12R2Console to the path of the console :))
CreateBaseline.ps1 to C:\Scripts\CM12R2Console on the same computer where you installed the CM12 R2 Console
Once you have done it, restart the console and you’ll see a new action group called RFL Systems and once you right click any software update group, you’ll also be able to see the action (see below screenshot)
But what happen when the baseline already exist? Easy, the script will ask you to confirm if you want replace it or not. in case you want, it will replace it and the version history will be incremented.
