Support for Windows Server 2016? The TechNet page mentions it would be coming in CU5: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn951388.aspx#OS
Edit: I guess the page does say "after CU5", so maybe no support yet.
Hi @Jeff Brown - stay tuned. It's coming!
Thank you for this update! I was about to open a ticket and now I don't have to.
@Earl Zirkle - Boom!
Is there an enhancement in this CU to enable the "Press 1" for the PSTN "call me at" feature in order to prevent getting voice mails on SfB conferences? Rumor has it that was being released soon for on premise SfB 2015. Fingers crossed.
Looks like Support for 2016 is included.

@Wolfgang Bach Try again - it may have been down for a bit but it should be up again. Sorry for the confusion.
The downloads are available. Is Skype for Business Server 2015 officially supported on Windows Server 2016 now?
