I’m re activating this one based on the fact that we don’t show the intrusive reboot countdown after the software was installed. We still have some work to do here to make this experience meet the requested behavior.Sven Mattheus commented
Believe there are 2 things which could be improved:
1. SCNotification (especially / at least when indicating a pending reboot) should go not only to Win10's Action Center, but more important: should remain a "visible" icon on the Taskbar (in the foreground by default / not hidden away!) - so that a user is better aware of the pending reboot.
2. Leverage Win10 user configurable settings like "Active Hours and Restart Options " into the SCCM agent ( e.g. "Business Hours" ) for a more seamless experience. Users do not understand why they should configure these settings in 2 different locations...
Updating status to Started.
SCCM 1904 Technical Preview is now released.
For more info:
This Technical Preview contains changes for task sequence pre-cache.
OS Images can be set for pre-cache – these follow the same properties as OS Upgrade Packages.
Driver Packages use the Model for determining if the package is to pre-cache or not.
Select * from Win32_ComputerSystemProduct where Name like “yourentry”.
There’s also a new column added for both objects showing the download rule.
Very much a work in progress, Packages are to be completed. Then the Create Driver Package wizards needs to be able to set the properties, PowerShell to be completed
Note: for testing, I know most Tech Preview is in small labs on virtual hardware. For testing using ‘Virtual Machine’ as the model name works fine, the content will go to CCMCache.
