Updating status to started:
SCCM 1904 Technical Preview is released.
For more info:
This Technical Preview has the new variable I mentioned – https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/get-started/2019/technical-preview-1904#bkmk_osd
Set SMSTSRebootDelayNext to control the restart delay after SMSTSRebootDelay
Impressive! Thanks for the update Bob!
The flaw with SMSTSRebootDelay that Aaron mentioned is documented here: tinyurl.com/yxzrcmp9
There's also clever a workaround, but it's an awkward and unsupported hack-job. We shouldn't need to do that to fix this.
Thanks for the feedback – updating status to Noted. See https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configmgreng/2016/03/11/configmrguv/
As mentioned there’s some excellent samples provided from our MVP community. We’ll likely break this item to distinct pieces e.g. expanding Check Readiness step to test for Battery/Is Wired etc.
As well as preflight using /Compat prior to upgrade can help with finding issues before deployment. For 1806 that will now run without stopping CCMExec (setting ProvisioningMode).
Coupled with using /Compat for upgrade Windows produced SetupDiag to help diagnose upgrade blockers in more detail – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/upgrade/setupdiag
Please add/improve this. It could be a lot easier to stay current on Win10 if a good upgrade TS was included. There's a lot of help out there (Thanks MVPs!), but the included SCCM functionality should be a lot better.
