Increase Technical Preview client limit from 10
Currently SCCM technical preview only has limited client support of 10. This is inadequate amount for any mid to large company. We cannot accurately ***** the new features on how they will respond to our network and OS configurations.
It should be 20+ for technical preview. Otherwise we cannot mimic our actual environment very well at all.
This is by design. TPs should not be used for pre production testing, or to mimic actual environments. This is not their purpose. They are for early customer feedback on features that are very early in the engineering cycle, so customers can influence our design in those features. The TP builds barely work. Often times, some features in those builds won’t work at all. We ship them anyway, because we want as early as possible feedback on new features. If you need environments that mimic production environments, and are used for preproduction… then the production builds are the correct option.

Yes please! We don't need to lift the ban, we don't even need hundreds ... but 20/25 would make testing things like server groups (or whatever you guys finally call it) more realistic.

+1. Ideally 20 in order to test both new features in ConfigMgr, co-management, Windows 10 and also to have a few spare clients to test day to day stuff. For example, there have been times where something is working in prod (CB) and it's actually broken in TP. It would be nice to have room to test without constantly killing off clients just to test things.
