Configuration Manager now supports SQL Extended Protection for Authentication


Configuration Manager now supports SQL Extended Protection for Authentication. It's a security feature that enhances protection against MITM attacks, making SQL Server more secure when connections are made using Extended Protection. These enhancements collectively reduce the risk of unauthorized access and protect sensitive data managed by the SQL Server Database Engine.


For more information, see Connect to the Database Engine Using Extended Protection


BitLocker support in Arm devices


Configuration Manager now supports BitLocker Task Sequence steps for Arm devices. In BitLocker Management, policies that include OS Drive encryption with a TPM protector and Fixed Drive encryption with the Auto-Unlock option are supported on Arm devices.



Introducing Centralized Search - Desired Workspace Selection


The centralized search box now enables the option to select the desired workspace for searching. Users can easily refine their search results by selecting the desired workspace from the dropdown menu.

Performance Enhancement of policy processing and collection evaluation


The performance of policy processing and collection evaluation has been enhanced. Previously, blocking chains from sp_ProcessPolicyChanges, called by PolicyPv, would run for hours, disrupting multiple workloads including collection management and policy processing.

Known issues


Unable to import or connect to Powershell Configuration Manager module via console


While importing or connecting to Configuration manager Powershell module via CM console users get the following error message : PS C:\Build\AdminConsole\bin> Import-Module .\ConfigurationManager.psd1 Import-Module : The module manifest 'C:\Build\AdminConsole\bin\ConfigurationManager.psd1' could not be processed because it is not a valid Windows PowerShell restricted language file. Remove the elements that are not permitted by the restricted language

Configuration Manager console won't automatically update


If you update a technical preview site from version 2401 to a later version, the Configuration Manager console fails to update. This problem is because of a known issue in the extension installer.


Mitigation: To work around this issue, after you update the site from version 2401 to a later version, manually uninstall the previous console and run ConsoleSetup.exe.


For more information, see Install the Configuration Manager console


Update 2405 for Technical Preview Branch is available in the Microsoft Configuration Manager Technical Preview console. For new installations, the 2405 baseline version of Microsoft Configuration Manager Technical Preview Branch is available on the link:  CM2405TP-Baseline or from Eval center


Technical Preview Branch releases give you an opportunity to try out new Configuration Manager features in a test environment before they are made generally available.
