Microsoft Windows Server 19H1 test build is here

Windows Insiders can now play around with the latest Microsoft Windows Server version 19H1.

Windows Server 18282 build was released on the 20th of November. In any case, the newest release is the latest Insider test build that was released after Microsoft re-released Windows Server 2019/1809 on the 13th of November.

The Microsoft officials haven’t said anything about the new features of Server 18282 up to this point, although there was a brief blog post that mentioned it. The article more or less confirmed that the version is the first Insider build of the Semi-Annual Channel release. Please bear in mind, however, that the build is set to expire on the 14th of December 2018. No activation keys are needed.

Windows Server 19H1 should become available to mainstream users somewhere around April next year.

In other related news, Microsoft has made the details surrounding the multi-factor breakdown public. The company has listed three root causes.

The first one was a problem that acted as a latency issue in MFA’s front end communication to the cache services. The second one was connected to how the MFA back-end server reply was processed. The third one was basically the MFA back-end being unable to communicate with the front-end and process its requests.

Microsoft has already issued an apology to all the customers that were affected by this. However, at the time of writing, no word has been shared regarding a potential financial compensation. The full details are available on Microsoft’s official blog.
