Hello everyone! Update 1607 for Configuration Manager Technical Preview has been released. Technical Preview releases give you an opportunity to try out new Configuration Manager features in a test environment before they are made generally available. We’re looking forward to hearing what you have to say about this month’s new preview features, which includes:
- 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: Add known duplicate MAC addresses or SMBIOS IDs to be ignored hierarchy-wide for PXE boot and client registration.
- Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) connector: Sync data such as collections from ConfigMgr to OMS.
- Windows 10 Edition Upgrade: Upgrade PC clients running Windows 10 Professional edition to Windows 10 Enterprise edition with just a product key; no reimaging required.
Update 1607 for Technical Preview is available directly in the Configuration Manager console. If you want to install Configuration Manager Technical Preview for the first time, the installation bits (currently based on Technical Preview 1603) are available on TechNet Evaluation Center.
We would love to get your thoughts about the latest Technical Preview! To provide feedback or report any issues with the functionality included in this Technical Preview, please use Connect.
