Microsoft has just announced the release of the preview build 18317 for the Windows Server vNext Semi-Annual channel release, as well as Windows Admin Center Preview 1812. The new Windows Server build brings the ability to support multiple code integrity policies through three different scenarios, in addition to a couple of bug fixes.

Windows Admin Center, the new graphical management tool for Windows Server is also getting some love in this 1812 release. New features include a new dark theme UI, the addition of Power configuration tab on the server settings page, and the ability to configure Windows Admin Center using PowerShell.

This new Windows Server build is now available to download for Insiders on the Windows Server Insider Preview download page. Microsoft noted in the release notes that in-place upgrade will fail for this build, so you’ll have no choice but doing a clean install.
