Welcome to Recast’s Endpoint Management Recap, May 2023 – by Daniel Engberg

Hello everyone. As we bid farewell to May, I wanted to share some exciting updates and reflections from the past month.

While I couldn’t attend this year’s Midwest Management Summit (MMS), I’ve heard nothing but praise from my friends in the community who were fortunate enough to be there. They returned with valuable insights and new connections, highlighting the importance of events like MMS in our professional growth.

In the realm of scripting, ChatGPT continues to revolutionize our tasks, making them more efficient and unlocking new possibilities along the way.

Don’t miss out on the ongoing Cloud Skills Challenge, offering you the chance to earn a free Microsoft certification. This exciting opportunity ends on June 20th, so make sure to seize it before time runs out!

A new version of Configuration Manager technical preview (2305) has been released, reinforcing its significance in enterprise environments. Despite its perception as a legacy product, Microsoft continues to invest in updates, ensuring it remains adaptable to the evolving needs of our field.

As we progress, let’s stay informed about the latest security alerts, including the Windows Boot Manager revocations for Secure Boot changes (CVE-2023-24932). We can safeguard our systems and ensure a secure environment by remaining proactive.

I extend my sincere gratitude to all the community members who generously share their expertise through blog posts, podcasts, and other platforms. Your contributions inspire us and foster a thriving knowledge-sharing community.

See you next month!

The latest Configuration Manager Technical Preview version, version 2305, brings several exciting new features. These include introducing the Preferred Management Point (MP) option for PXE boot scenarios, allowing PXE clients to communicate with an initial lookup MP and receive the list of MP(s) for further communication. A new Site Maintenance task called “Delete Aged Task Execution Status Messages” is now available to clean up data older than 30 days on primary servers.

In other updates, Intune is preparing to introduce Windows driver and firmware updates, enhancing device management capabilities.

Furthermore, the highly anticipated feature of booting straight into a Windows 365 device is now available for deployment in the public preview.

Stay tuned for more exciting developments from Microsoft’s ecosystem of products.
