Microsoft recently released SCCM 1903 Technical Preview as you can see here. This release comes with yet more new features and I’m proud to say that one of the new features was based on a UserVoice that I submitted.
Note: You might come across a situation where the download never completes, if you do, follow my advice here. This state will be clear as it will sit on ‘downloading’ for a very long time (hours on end) and you may see a warning in dmpdownloader.log about a file not being signed like in the screenshot below.
Note: If you get any problem related to lack of free disk space while upgrading the ConfigMgr console, please see this post.
After installing the new console everything is completed and it’s time to check out the new features.
Once done, i restarted the AdminConsole, selected the Task Sequence I was busy editing, selected it, choose Edit and then saw the following dialog.
After clicking on Discard Changes, you’ll be able to edit your task sequence, but you’ll have lost whatever you were working on when the console crashed. But this is great as it means you don’t have to wait 30 minutes or so for the SEDO lock to time out.
Clicking on Discard Changes allows me to re-take control of my work and begin approximately where I left off. Great feature ! Thanks @Djammmer and team !
