MDT 2012 Update 1 Beta 1

Ca y est ! En parallèle de l’annonce du service pack 1 de SCCM 2012, la beta 1 de MDT 2012 update 1 a été annoncée hier par Michael Nielhaus sur le blog de MDT

Entre autres nouveautés, on notera la possibilité de générer des pages dans l’assistant de déploiement sans avoir à coder 🙂

La beta est disponible sur Connect et comme pour toute beta, n’oubliez pas de contribuer et de donner votre avis.

Le détail des nouveautés en anglais :

  • Support for using the DaRT 8 Beta with the Windows 8 Release Preview version of the Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK).
  • New “Build Your Own Pages” support for User-Driven Installation (UDI), enabling IT pros to create new wizard panes using simple drag-and-drop operations – no coding required.
  • Integration with System Center Orchestrator, enabling task sequences to invoke Orchestrator runbooks at any point in the deployment process.
  • Completely reworked “Roles and Features” logic, supporting both installation and removal, as well as providing a new Lite Touch wizard pane for selecting roles and features to install at deploy time.
  • Support for PowerShell 3.0 to make it easier to run PowerShell scripts inside task sequences on Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, and Windows PE 4.0.
  • Simple monitoring functionality for Configuration Manager task sequences, leveraging the monitoring capabilities provided initially in MDT 2012 for Lite Touch deployments.
  • Improved “boot from VHD” deployment capabilities, supporting both bare metal and refresh deployments
