What’s new in ConfigMgr and SCEP Technical Preview 2

Today, ConfigMgr and SCEP Technical Preview 2 became available. Technical Preview 2 provides you with an early glimpse of the functionality that is planned for Q4 2015 (close to Windows 10), bringing with it full support for client deployment, upgrade, and management of Windows 10.

New features available in Technical Preview 2 include: 
-Universal Windows apps support for Windows 10 – Side-load internally developed Universal Windows apps to Windows 10 devices.
-Peer cache support for Windows PE – Includes OS deployment scenarios for Windows PE, extending our existing Configuration Manager peer cache content management.
-Ability to manage Windows 10 PCs and mobile devices via MDM with on-premises ConfigMgr infrastructure – Manage Windows 10 devices using ConfigMgr integrated with Microsoft Intune (hybrid) without the need to store your data in the cloud. This is especially helpful for managing devices that are unable to connect to the Internet such as Windows IoT/Embedded devices. (Intune subscription required)

Also included are features that were previously released in the first Technical Preview in May:
-Support for Windows 10 upgrade with OS deployment task sequence – In addition to providing support for existing wipe-and-load (refresh) scenarios, the ConfigMgr Technical Preview includes enhanced upgrade support with in-place upgrade to Windows 10.
-Support for installing ConfigMgr on Azure Virtual Machines – Similar to how you can install ConfigMgr on Hyper-V today, you can now run ConfigMgr in Azure VMs. This provides flexibility to move some or all of your datacenter server workloads to the cloud with Azure.

For more information and download have a look on:
TechNet Evaluation Center

Also, if you have a feature request, make sure to share your ideas on the new ConfigMgr UserVoice site.

Just download and enjoy this second Technical Preview!
