Update 1704 for SCCM Technical Preview Available Now. Technical Preview Branch releases give you an opportunity to try out new Configuration Manager features in a test environment before they are made generally available.

This month’s new preview features include:

  • Secure Boot inventory data – Hardware inventory can now determine whether the device has Secure Boot enabled (enabled by default).
  • Run Task Sequence step – This is a new step in the task sequence to run another task sequence, which creates a parent-child relationship between two task sequences.
  • Reload boot images with latest Windows PE version – During the “Update Distribution Points” wizard on a boot image, you can now reload the version of Windows PE in the selected boot image.

This release also includes the following improvements for customers using System Center Configuration Manager connected with Microsoft Intune to manage mobile devices:

  • Android app configuration support– Administrators can create an app configuration policy for Android applications deployed with Google Play.

Update 1704 for Technical Preview Branch is available in the Configuration Manager console. For new installations please use the 1703 baseline version of Configuration Manager Technical Preview Branch available on TechNet Evaluation Center.
