On September 24, 2015 Microsoft announced support for iOS9 through he iOS9 extension for Microsoft Intune in Configuration Manager.
To enable the extension, go to your SCCM console (2012 R2 SP1 CU1). Under Administration, expand Cloud Services and click Extension for Microsoft Intune.
In the right pane, right click the iOS 9 Extension and click Enable (or from the toolbar). If you do not have CU1, this can fail.
Accept the License Terms – make sure you read all of it first 🙂
After couple of years of debates to do this or not, we have decided to move forward with this group. There is no similar group like this in Chicagoland area. We have done topics with the Chicago Windows User Group in the past and will continue to support them in joint events. However, the membership for a Windows user group vs. a System Center, EMS, datacenter and client management, is much different.
If you are in the Chicago area, please sign up.
The group is co-founded by Rich Lilly. Check out his blog here and follow him on Twitter
Deploying and managing Windows 10 in your business does not mean upgrading your client management infrastructure. Use your existing SCCM and Windows Server investments to deploy and manage the new Windows 10, which has now been officially released. See the matrix below for compatibility information. Also note, a new version of System Center Configuration Manager is in the works which will offer new capabilities related to Windows 10 features but is not needed to get Windows 10 out to your users today!
The following are quick steps to enroll the Microsoft Windows 10 Insiders Preview (as of build 10130) to Microsoft Intune in a hybrid environment with Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 SP1 Configuration Manager (SCCM).
This assume you have already configured Microsoft Intune into your SCCM environment.
- In the SCCM console, navigate to Administration -> Overview -> Cloud Services -> Microsoft Intune Subscriptions.
On the top ribbon bar, click the Configure Platforms button. Click Windows in the drop down
From the Microsoft Intune Subscription Properties, click the Enable Windows enrollment.
Log onto your Windows 10 desktop, go to Settings and choose Network and Internet
Click on Accounts and then Work access. On the Connect to work or school section, click the + Connect
Enter your work email address that are Intune enabled (an account that has synchronization between your on-premise Active Directory and Windows Azure Active Directory). After you click continue, you will be sent to the Microsoft site to authenticate.
Once done, you see the connected account on the main section.
In the SCCM console, you will now be able to see your newly enrolled device as a Mobile device. You will be able to deploy applicable compliance policies just like any other mobile devices in your organization.
In this video, I talk about how companies are using Adaptiva OneSite to produce incredible ROI, dramatically reduce administrator workload, and perform zero-touch Windows deployments on a massive scale.
As most have seen the blog announcing the Intune Mobile Application Management and Conditional Access for Outlook. At the very bottom, there is a Note about the hybrid customers (SCCM) availability that seems to be missed by few folks when they update to SP1.

Microsoft will be making the next update for Microsoft Intune between March 4, 2015 and March 7, 2015. New Intune standalone (cloud only) features that will be released as part of this service update include:
- Ability to streamline the enrollment of iOS devices purchased directly from Apple or an authorized reseller with the Device Enrollment Program (DEP)
- Ability to restrict access to SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business based upon device enrollment and compliance policies
- Management of OneDrive apps for iOS and Android devices
- Ability to deploy .appx files to Windows Phone 8.1 devices
- Ability to restrict the number of devices a user can enroll in Intune
It’s important to note that the updates are for the stand alone Cloud only and not the integrated with SCCM. Updated to the integrated extensions are usually 3-6 months after the standalone is available.
Usually when I go onsite to clients for OSD related projects, once in a while come across those that do not want to adapt to using the Software Update Point (SUP). These clients want the capability for integrating the Software Update process in the Build and Capture as well as the Deployment Task Sequences without SUP.
This is easy to do if you have the MDT 2010 Toolkit packaged.
In the Task Sequence for the Build and Capture (of the Deployment TS)
1. Add the MDT Task Use Toolkit Package
2. Add the task Set Task Sequence Variable. Set the WSUSServer variable to the corporate WSUS.
3. Add the task Run Command Line. Enter the command line as shown below (Figure 3).
