MDOP is a collection of virtualization, management and recovery tools for Windows business customers. It bundles together Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM), Application Virtualization for Windows Desktops (App-V), User Experience Virtualization (UEV), BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM), Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DaRT) and Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V).
The 2015 "Spring" release includes App-V 5.1; MBAM 2.5 Service Pack (SP) 1; UEV 2.1 SP1; DaRT 10; and AGPM 4.0 SP3. All of those updated pieces now include support for Windows 10. The full list of updated features for MDOP 2015 is available on the MDOP 2015 MSDN page by clicking "Details."
MDOP isn't the only set of Windows 10 tools for which business users are waiting. I've had several users ask me when Microsoft plans to release Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10. These tools allow Windows 10 PCs to connect to and manage Windows Server.
A Microsoft official said last month the Windows 10 version of RSAT should be out around mid-August. I've heard from others that Microsoft is planning to deliver the Windows 10 release of RSAT simultaneously with its next Windows Server 2016 preview. Given the Windows Server 2016 third technical preview bits leaked over the weekend, I'd bet the new RSAT tools should be out very soon.
Update: Microsoft also is rolling out the latest version of the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT), MDT 2013 Update 1. The latest MDT release supports the deployment of and upgrade to Windows 10. It includes support for the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows 10; the new Enterprise Long Term Servicing Branch and Education editions of Windows 10, and more.
A couple more Windows 10 tidbits that may be of interest to business users. For those who've been asking why some users who have PCs on domain-joined networks are having the "Update to Windows 10" app, if not Windows 10 itself, automatically downloaded to their PCs -- a scenario Microsoft officials seemed to indicate wouldn't occur -- there are various possible reasons.
When I asked Microsoft about this situation, I received the following statement from a spokesperson:
"For individuals who have chosen to receive automatic updates through Windows Update, we help upgradable devices get ready for Windows 10 by downloading the files they'll need if they decide to upgrade. When the upgrade is ready, the customer will be prompted to install Windows 10 on the device. For organizations, IT professionals have access to tools, which enable them to manage and control downloads on their network domain, and also make a determination as to when and if to install Windows 10. This approach is an industry practice, which stages software, reducing the time for installation and ensures the device is ready (e.g., has the correct graphics drivers to ensure display monitor will function correctly), should the customer choose to install the upgrade."
"We are aware that a small set of customers are experiencing issues with Active Directory account lockouts on Windows 10. Customers experiencing this issue should contact Microsoft Support for assistance. We are working to resolve the situation as soon as possible and thank our customers for their patience," a spokesperson said in response to my question via an emailed statement.
