How can we improve Microsoft Intune

Windows 10 Upgrades (1511) via Intune

The Windows 10 1511 Upgrade is not available via Intune. We use Intune as our Update Management platform (small business).

I thought that the Windows update functionality in Intune should be like a WSUS in the Cloud. With peer-Distribution in Windows 10 and in Intune before it should be possible to not overload our Internet line.

If this should not work by design then please Microsoft state clearly which of your products is designed for which Scenario.

        This is unbelievable. We are now up to 1709 and still Intune cannot deploy feature pack upgrades! I have computers stuck on 1511 that cannot be updated unless I manually go to each computer or I completely remove Intune! WHAT A JOKE! I've attempted to manually upgrade one notebook this weekend by clicking the 'Check online' option and it's been going all weekend and it's still downloading! For me this is the final straw for Intune. I'll be removing this from all remaining clients starting this week. NOT GOOD ENOUGH MICROSOFT!

        This is done under Windows 10 Update Rings. You can control the version CBB / CB, control driver updates, and control HTTP blended peering behind a NAT firewall.

        We would like to see the ability on Microsoft Intune to deploy OS upgrades to Windows 10 MDM enroll devices.
        Example: Upgrade windows 1511 to 1703

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Is there an easy way to transition away from the Intune Desktop Client (which doesn't allow for feature updates) to the new Azure MDM solution (which does allow for feature updates)?

      • Jack Lewis commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Intune can now be used to manage the feature update rollout to Windows 10 Enterprise 1607 devices, that are MDM managed, by using the Windows 10 Update Rings feature from the Intune module in the new Azure Portal.

      • Andrew Yen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Isn't that now implemented with that Azure thing? Now I think I can setup distribution rings or something?

      • Tijs Bouwmans commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        An appropriate short term solution could be to disable automatic update trough intune by devices that are managed trough Intune, thus individually updating trough Windows Update online.

        How is this not fixed yet? Windows 10 branches are losing security-support in a few months. This is getting critical

      • Fábio Bretes Vitor commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hey guys, Any news about this? Is quite strange that all Windows 10 enrolled machines (even deployed using Windows 1511) aren't able to be upgraded just using Microsoft Intune. I already tested the scenario availble in the new Azure Portal, but seems not working. Even from 1511 to 1607 (CBB), or from 1607 to 1703 (CB).

      • La Var commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I can not believe this is not even possible for Intune. How is this not possible? Is this being planned? I have clients in different states it would suck that I go and visit them just to upgrade their os from 1511 to 1607 to 1703. Come on Microsoft Help us out here!

      • Jordan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Like some of the others here, we have thousands of machines which will need to be upgraded from 1511 to 1607 and later on 1703. If the new upgrade model includes rapid releases of Windows 10 builds, then Intune should have the ability to support that same model. Otherwise, it would seem Intune is failing to deliver what it promised.

        We need to enroll the anniversary update per Intune aswell. Please include those updates also in Intune! Big Thanks

      • Greg Hay commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Seriously. we have 3000+ devices sitting on 10240. We don't plan to walk to every device around the country. we don't have sccm (and don't plan to) How do we get intune to push these devices to the anniversary release? we wanted to go windows defender advanced protection and we cant, because the devices wont work, because they are on the wrong build, and intune wont upgrade the build. Not a great pitch for intune or windows atp.

      • Andrew Yen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        For now the only real workaround I've figured was running the windows 10 upgrade assistant as a application with a required install... but even so it's a hit or miss game.

      • Gabe commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Learned of this the other day as well. How can I roll out start menus if the XML formatting of 1607 is different to 1511? How do I explain to my sponsor that Intune does not cover all Windows Updates?
        That is, we have subscribed to EMS starting this year, but the Intune part has gimped our planned rollout of cloud management of identities and devices. As long as we cannot manage device configurations and apps properly via Intune, I cannot recommend the Enterprise Mobility Suite to anyone.

        There is tons of movement within in other areas (Azure, Office 365, etc.), but Intune appears to be the red-headed step child. What in the world is going on?
