SCCM ConfigMgr CB Download Upgrade Step by Step Guide Configuration Manager Intune

Discuss the SCCM ConfigMgr CB Download Upgrade Step by Step Guide Configuration Manager Intune. This Saturday, the Microsoft SCCM team released the latest technical preview.

I blogged about the two exciting features of the SCCM ConfigMgr CB version in the post “SCCM ConfigMgr AAD User Discovery and Client Authentication with Cloud Identities.”

This is not the production version of the SCCM ConfigMgr CB version. You should not install this version of SCCM in a production environment. Technical preview versions of SCCM CB will get released every month.

I recommend that SCCM admins install the TP version of SCCM CB in their lab environment so that they can keep up with the new features that are enabled in every TP release.
