Are You Having Issue with Windows 10 WIP EDP and SCCM CB 1606

Are you having issues with Windows Information Protection (WIP, previously known as “Enterprise Data Protection – EDP”) policies which are configured through SCCM ConfigMgr CB 1606 production version? If so, I was one of you. Here I’m talking about the issue which I faced during the deployment of WIP policy via Windows 10 MDM channel. I will try to explain the issue which I had with WIP CI (for the specific scenario which I tested) :- When you open WIP CI and try to check whether everything is ok or not and  just exit out of CI with/without doing any changes, then it will automatically change some values in CI XML and this will intern break the entire CI. I’ve embedded a video below which will explain this bug/issue in much more detail. If you are new to WIP/EDP and you wanted to know how to create, deploy and test WIP with Windows 10 then have a look at the my previous post and video here.

Good news is that the new rollup update (KB3186654) released by Microsoft most probably fixed this issue. I have done extensive testing with Windows Information Protection (WIP) policies/CIs after installing the new rollup on SCCM CB 1606 server and the results are very promising. I tried creating new WIP CIs, editing the existing WIP CIs etc…All the scenarios which I tested worked well for me. I tested this with Windows 10 1607 build Build numbers 14393.00 and 14393.82 (via MDM channel).
