Welcome to Recast’s Endpoint Management Recap, September 2022 – by Daniel Engberg
The first official month of fall is here! I like this part of the year, it’s still not that cold, but you can be inside without any bad conscience.
In September, the main highlight is the release of Windows 11 22H2, which, most significantly, adds built-in security features.
The community has also provided a massive amount of content.
Apart from Windows 11, there is also much content around Windows 365. This month, I tried using a USB-C connection on an Android phone to get a whole Windows 365 experience. It had some hiccups, but it worked! I can see a cool future where you have your cloud PC in your pocket.
The following newsletter will most likely be packed with content since Ignite is happening in October. This will be a hybrid event, digitally and on-site, in Seattle. Sadly, I will not attend, but I will watch as many sessions as my busy schedule allows.
Recast Software will host a webinar Tuesday, October 18th with Sami Laiho, a 12-time Microsoft MVP, to discuss what privileged access management means for your team and provide tips on how you can move closer to a zero trust environment. Attendees will get a first look into Recast’s new PAM solution, Privilege Manager.
Talk to you next month!

In September, Microsoft released Windows 11 22H2 with some built-in security features, such as additional security features. Apart from that, I’m excited about the new releases and know that some extra things will come to add support for Windows 365. We also have some usable applications, such as Clip Champ. The update is available through deployment in Intune, Visual Studio Subscription, and as an image in the Windows 365 gallery.
- Windows 11, version 22H2 Security Baseline
- Administrative Templates (.admx) for Windows 11, version 22H2
- Group Policy settings reference spreadsheet for Windows 11, version 22H2
- Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) for Windows 11, version 22H2
We also have a new SCCM Technical Preview version, 2209. My favorite feature in this release is that searches in the console include sub-folders by default.

Every month, we cover updates to the tools, scripts, and software provided by the major hardware vendors related to enterprise client management. Check out the ConfigMgr Manufacturers page for a complete list of tools, blog posts, and information about the vendors.
** 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.
- Dell Command Configure Update – version 18.104.22.1684, A00
- Dell Command Deploy WinPE Driver Pack – version 1.0, A28
- Dell Trusted Device Agent – version 4.8.135, A38
- HP Image Assistant (HPIA) – version 5.1.6 – Adds command line parameter /ReferenceFile that allows passing a reference filename. This is equivalent to using the UI for Analyze Image in the Choose Reference Image field.
- HP Client Management Script Library – version 1.6.8
Due to the sheer amount of community content, I have decided only to include one post per contributor, to keep the size of the endpoint management recap down. Great work everyone with providing so much to us for free!
