Last month Microsoft released SharePoint Server 2016 Beta 2. Let’s see what’s inside this build!
The installation image is available on Microsoft Download Center site with 180-day trial key.
The installation process is similar to the IT Preview version (see the detailed post).
Please note that you cannot upgrade IT Preview version to Beta 2!
- Support for Microsoft Identity Manager 2016
SharePoint 2016 no longer uses Forefront Identity Manager client – the default solution is Active Directory Import. In Beta 2 we can use Microsoft Identity Manager for bi-directional synchronization scenarios.
- Data Loss Prevention
Enhanced support for DLP policies that helps you secure senstitive information hosted on SharePoint sites.
- Extensible Hybrid App Launcher
It is a seamless navigation experience between SharePoint Server 2016 and Office 365. The Extensible Hybrid App Launcher displays Office 365 Delve, Video and custom tiles from your O365 on SharePoint Server.
- Profile Redirection
Profiles for all hybrid users are stored in Office 365 and hybrid users from on-premise will be redirected to their Delve profiles in Office 365.
