Michael Niehaus' Windows and Office deployment ramblings
As you may have noticed, either from the http://blogs.technet.com/msdeployment blog or via an e-mail announcement from http://connect.microsoft.com, we have released MDT 2010 Update 1 Beta. If you haven’t yet downloaded this to try it out, sign up now to get the files.
So what’s new in this version? Well, there are a few new features, such as:
There are also lots of bug fixes and other minor enhancements, mostly based on the feedback we have received from people using MDT 2010.
Try out the beta and provide feedback via Connect as soon as you can – we want to get any remaining issues taken care of as soon as possible so that we can get a final release out this summer.
Is there USMT support from Office 2010 to Office 2010 for refresh?
I really surprised and disappointed by MDT 2010 Update 1. Still Microsoft didn't provide any support for Wired 802.1x Network Authentication. When I was in Tech Ed Berlin 2009. I have asked this questions to many deployment Microsoft's guru and they all said that we are working on it and will be fixed in Summer 2010. Do you have any idea, when MDT 2010 or WDS can able to suport Wired 802.1x network authentication?
USMT definitions for Office 2010 are being worked on, but aren't yet available.
An 802.1x component was released for Windows PE and can be downloaded as a hotfix. See support.microsoft.com/.../972831 for details. Work is still ongoing to create documentation that explains how to use this in various scenarios. Because this can be used in many different ways, it's not a simple implementation.
Yeah I know about this hotfix but there is no documentation... I am looking forward for documentation. I hope, if it could be released this summer...
But you still cannot do a USMT 4 hardlink using just MDT2010 in PE, correct? If so, I cannot figure out how to do this at all. But from my understanding, unless you are using SCCM, there are no real advantages to the update.
