        Updated to Noted. We’ve been discussing the same in our planning meetings.

        Thanks,
        BobMN on behalf of SangeeV for SCCM OS Deployment

                I’m updating the status. For 1606 we’ve made some changes, listed below.
                As more are added we’ll update what Tech Preview/Release they appear in.

                Timeout scan is now configurable
                We added a new task sequence variable to allow a configurable timeout for scan. Variable name is SMSTSSoftwareUpdateScanTimeout, default is 30 minutes. Value is set in seconds so an hour is 60×60=3600

                Logging changes
                In the SMSTS.log we list the log files to check for updates download and evaluation.
                These are UpdateDeployment.log, UpdatesHandler.log, WUAHandler.log and WindowsUpdate.log

                New Option for full scan
                There’s a new checkbox added to the Install Updates step – ‘Evaluate software updates from cached scan results’
                If the checkbox is on we use cached results, if the checkbox is off we do a full scan
                Task Sequences that are upgraded will have this option checked on – this is parity with the existing behavior

                Power management changes…
