Announcing Windows Server Annual Channel for Containers Preview Build 26010

Hello Windows Server Container Insiders!

Today we are pleased to release a new build of the next Windows Server Annual Channel for Containers Preview that contains Server Datacenter Core edition. Branding has not yet been updated and remains as Windows Server 2022 in this preview - when reporting issues please refer to "Windows Server Annual Channel VNext" rather than Windows Server 2022 which is currently in market.

 

What's New

 

To learn about this new offering for container host and Kubernetes development, please review this post: Windows Server Containers (microsoft.com)

 

Known Issues

 

[NEW] Setup: Some users may experience overlapping rectangle voids following mouse clicks during "OOBE" setup. This is a graphics rendering issue and will not prevent setup from completing. This issue will be addressed in a future release.

 

[NEW] WinPE - Powershell Scripts: Applying the WinPE-Powershell optional component does not properly install Powershell in WinPE. As a result, Powershell cmdlets will fail. Customers who are dependent on Powershell in WinPE should not use this build.

 

Upgrades from existing Windows Server installations are not supported with Annual Channel for Containers previews. You must perform a clean install.

 

This build has an issue where archiving eventlogs with "wevetutil al" command causes the Windows Event Log service to crash, and the archive operation to fail. The service must be restarted by executing "Start-Service EventLog" from an administrative command line prompt.
