Early this year, Microsoft announced the Windows Autopilot private preview for HoloLens 2. Last Friday, Microsoft announced the public preview of Windows Autopilot for HoloLens 2. Windows Autopilot for HoloLens 2 will allow admins to pre-configure new devices and set them up for productive use.
Windows Autopilot streamlines deployments and first user experiences, driving significant cost and time savings.
When a user starts the Autopilot self-deploying process, Autopilot completes the following steps:
- Join the device to Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). Note that Autopilot for HoloLens does not support Active Directory join or Hybrid Azure AD join.
- Use Azure AD to enroll the device in Microsoft Endpoint Manager (or another MDM service).
- Download and apply device-targeted policies, certificates, networking profiles and applications.
- Provision the device.
- Present the sign-in screen to the user.
