We received a lot of questions about “will SCCM 2007 support Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012?”. Here is the answer including WHAT is supported…
There is a Hotfix available for SCCM 2007 SP2 to support Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 –> KB2750782.
The Hotfix will give the possibility to MANAGE Win8 and 2012 Operating Systems.
- Software Distribution
- Software Update Management (Patch Management)
- Desired Configuration Management
The Hotfix will NOT provide OSD (Operating System Deployment) functions. You can deploy Windows 8 and Server 2012 without any MS Support and without new features (like BitLocker PreProvisioning –> see here Bitlocker Features in SCCM 2012 SP1 Beta)!
If you need also features like APP-V 5, Cloud Distribution Point, Mobile Device Management for iPhone, Android, Windows Phone… you have to upgrade to SCCM 2012 SP1 (release should be in January 2013)!
