SCCM Client Support for Windows 10 1803 

Have you upgraded your SCCM CB to the latest version of CB 1802? If not, Microsoft won’t officially support any Windows 10 1803 SCCM clients in your environment. It doesn’t mean previous versions of SCCM client won’t work with Windows 10 1803.

I did a quick test with SCCM 1710 client on Windows 10 1803 machine, and it worked for me. But, I did test all the features of SCCM. So, there is no hard block on the SCCM client installation and functionality.

Microsoft recently updated support statement documentation about the Windows 10 1803 as an SCCM client. Following table has more detailed information. SCCM attempts to provide support as a client for each new Windows 10 version as soon as possible after it becomes available.

SCCM Client version 1802 or later is the ONLY supported version for Windows 10 1803

Do you have Windows 10 1803 machines with SCCM CB client version (1710 or below)?

Microsoft doesn’t support any previous versions of SCCM CB client running on Windows 10 1803 machines

Windows 10 ADK Support with SCCM CB Infra Versions

Microsoft released the newest version of ADK for Windows 10 1803 version. Windows 10 1803 ADK is NOT supported with SCCM 1710 version. So Microsoft doesn’t recommend you to install Windows 10 1803 ADK when your SCCM CB version is 1710 or below.

You can have 1803 or 1709 or 1703 (backward compatibility) Windows 10 ADK versions for 1802 version SCCM CB infra

The following table lists the versions of the Windows 10 ADK that you can use with different versions of SCCM. Microsoft already updated the support statement documentation to reflect the following changes.

  1. Hi – Based on above info, I should remove older version of ADK and install ADK 1803 within my lab infra running CB1802 – right?

    Thanks

  2. How does one handle multiple version of Windows? There does not seem to be an easy answer here. Currently we deploy Windows 7 and Windows 10 1703 in our environment. When I upgraded from SCCM 1702 to SCCM 1710, I moved us from ADK 1607 to ADK 1709. While I am aware we should be matching the ADK to the version of Windows 10 we deploy, most environments dont just have a single version. Not only do we still have some SCCM Windows 7 build requirements, but I also need to support Windows 10 LTSB 2016 (which is actually Windows 1607) as well as support newer versions of Windows 10 like 1709 and 1803 for testing. Based off of Microsofts logic I should only be using 1703, as thats the main version of Widows we deploy. Next week I will be upgrading SCCM to 1802. Do I keep the ADK level at 1709?

  3. Same question as below in my mind. Can ADK 1803 support Windows 7 SP1 OSD?
