Update 1607 for Microsoft Configuration Manager Technical Preview has been released

This month’s new preview of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager includes the following features:

  • Customizable branding for end-user dialogs: End-user dialogs that are opened from Software Center or taskbar notifications now show the same organization name, color and icon branding as Software Center. The administrator workflow for specifying branding settings remains unchanged.

  • Manage duplicate hardware identifiers: Allows you to add known duplicate MAC addresses or SMBIOS IDs so that they will be ignored hierarchy-wide for PXE boot and client registration.
  • Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) connector: Syncs data such as collections from Configuration Manager to Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS).

  • Windows 10 Edition Upgrade: Allows you to upgrade PC clients running Windows 10 Professional edition to Windows 10 Enterprise edition with just a product key; no reimaging is required.

Update 1607 for Technical Preview is available directly in the Configuration Manager console.
