This post outlines some of the best features which were released with SCCM 1806 Current Branch. The adoption for 1806 has been rapidly increasing since it was released just a couple of weeks ago and the upgrade process has been seamless.
CMPivot – A New tool has been released to allow you to obtain real-time results on the state of your connected devices. This allows IT Admins to quickly analyse devices and answer business questions or respond to security threats.
Site Server High Availability – You can now setup a site server in Passive mode so that it is always available incase your active site server goes offline. This has been a feature which has been eagerly anticipated by many IT admins.
