Recast’s Endpoint Management Recap – May 2022

Welcome to the Recast Endpoint Management Recap, May 2022 – by Daniel Engberg.

This edition will be my first, and I’m very excited to be joining Recast with a monthly recap. I’ll start with a quick introduction. My name is Daniel Engberg, and I have been working and covering the enterprise client management space for the past ten years on my blog, danielengberg.com. I live in Gothenburg, Sweden, with my wife and 1.5-year-old son and work as a Principal Consultant at Agdiwo.

This month, we have a new version of the ConfigMgr Technical Preview, which resolves a long-awaited feature for configuring maintenance windows offset from Patch Tuesday. The community has provided us with a few blog posts on the topic. 

One fun trend I’m seeing is the plethora of new, free community events. Check out a few of them below and sign up! 

I hope you like the newsletter. If you want to be featured, or have any comments, feel free to reach out to me on Twitter.

This month, Microsoft has provided us with some updates for Microsoft Defender for Endpoint (previously Microsoft Advanced Threat Protection). 

We also see updates for ConfigMgr, being some long-awaited updates in the new Technical Preview 2205. It is interesting to follow the updates here, as any improvements are usually carried over to the production release within a short timeframe.

  • Among some new improvements, the biggest news in this release is the addition of the option to set an offset for maintenance windows following Patch Tuesday. Configuration of this offset has been a long-standing issue, and I have previously written about this and created a solution: SCCM Maintenance Windows Creation based on Patch Tuesday (danielengberg.com). Hopefully, this should not be required any more.

Every month, we cover updates to the tools, scripts, and software provided by the major hardware vendors related to enterprise client management. For a full list of tools, blog posts and information about the vendors, check out the ConfigMgr Manufacturers’ page.

** Much of this information is provided directly from the vendor, so when you see “we” think of it as, “Vendor Name,” and not Recast Software.

This month, HP has provided us an update to their suite of scripts, called the HP Client Management Script Library (CMSL).

Due to the sheer amount of community content, I have decided only to include one post per contributor, to keep the size of the newsletter down. Great work everyone with providing so much to us for free!
