Microsoft Intune

Following up from Microsoft Ignite

I posted a blog with the Microsoft Ignite sessions that I thought would be interesting for anyone working with Windows Autopilot.  Now, those same session links point to the video recordings of all of the sessions.  A few key items to call out:

  • Windows Autopilot user-driven Hybrid Azure AD Join will add support for deploying over the internet, through support for VPN clients.  (We call this “BYO VPN” because any VPN client that can make a connection before the user signs in will work fine.)
  • ConfigMgr will be able to immediately run a task sequence as part of a Windows Autopilot deployment, so you can use all of your existing ConfigMgr expertise as part of this process.
  • A preview for the Delivery Optimization Connected Cache (previously called the In-Network Cache) will be available soon, sign up now.
  • You’ll be able to edit group tags and device names for Windows Autopilot devices soon, via the Intune console and Graph API.
  • We’ll soon have a Windows Autopilot deployment report in Intune.

Check out the recordings for more detail on these.  Here are a couple of teaser slides from the Windows Autopilot session – watch the video for explanations.
