Update 2007 for the Technical Preview Branch of Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager has been released. Hardware inventory can now be viewed for a tenant attached Configuration Manager device in the admin center.
This preview release also includes:
Improvements to client data sources dashboard – The client data sources dashboard now offers an expanded selection of filters to view information about where clients get content. These new filters include:
- Single boundary group
- All boundary groups
- Internet clients
- Clients not associated with a boundary group
Fixed-width font now used in some console areas – Based on your UserVoice feedback, various areas in the Configuration Manager console now use the fixed-width font Consolas. This font provides consistent spacing and makes it easier to read. In this release, you’ll see the Consolas font in the following places:
- Application scripts
- Configuration item scripts
- WMI-based collection membership queries
- CMPivot queries
Manage task sequence policy size – Configuration Manager technical preview version 2004 included new management insight rules for OS deployment. These insights help you manage the policy size of task sequences. Large task sequences cause problems with client processing. To further help manage the size of task sequences, starting in this release Configuration Manager restricts the following actions for a task sequence that’s greater than 2 MB in size:
- Save changes in the task sequence editor
- Save changes with PowerShell cmdlets
- Import a new task sequence
- Any other change using supported SDK methods
Update 2007 for Technical Preview Branch is available in the Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager Technical Preview console. For new installations, the 2007 baseline version of Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager Technical Preview Branch is available on the Microsoft Evaluation Center. Technical Preview Branch releases give you an opportunity to try out new Configuration Manager features in a test environment before they are made generally available.
