Just a very quick blog post to let you know that MDT 2012 Update 1 Beta 1 is available, I’m convinced that, if you read my blog, you also read Michael Niehaus’ Blog, so you might already know 🙂
Among the list of new features, I really like the fact that now you are able to add UDI pages without having to write code (I attended a partner session at MMS where the topic was how to write code to add UDI pages … BORING and now … Useless, thanks MDT team 🙂
I also like the integration with Orchestrator, MDT is now officially inviting itself in the public/private cloud deployment cycle !
As always with beta version, please read the release notes, and if your plan is to test a Windows 8 Release Preview ZTI deployment, then read this :
Deployment of Windows 8 Release Preview and Windows Server 2012 RC in MDT is supported for the LTI, ZTI, and UDI deployment methods. The ZTI and UDI deployment methods require System Center 2012 Configuration Manager with SP1 Community Technology Preview 2 (CTP2) to support Windows 8 Release Preview and Windows Server 2012 RC.
