FAQSs

How do I manage updates for Surface Hub?

How do I manage updates for  Surface Hub?

There are a couple ways you can control updates to your Surface Hub 2:

Windows Server Update Service (WSUS) Windows Update for Business (WUfB) is a set of features new to Windows 10, designed to provide enterprises additional control over how and when Windows Update installs releases, while reducing device management costs. WUfB can be configured using MDM policies, which means they can be deployed over System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) and other MDM solutions.

Update management using SCCM requires the Configuration Manager client, which is not supported on Surface Hub

Can I use Group Policy Objects (GPO) to manage settings on Surface Hub 2?

Surface Hub 2 is designed to be “appliance-like” in both how it is used and how it is managed. Group Policy is designed for managing PCs and servers, and contains thousands of different knobs and levers— the vast majority of which does not apply for Surface Hub 2. You can manage Surface Hub 2 using an existing Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution that you may be using for iOS and Android devices.

Can I use Mobile Device Management (MDM) to manage Surface Hub?

How long is Surface Hub’s duty cycle?

How long is Surface Hub’s duty cycle?

Surface Hub 2 can be used continuously for up to 18 hours a day. Nonetheless, Surface Hub is optimised for efficiency. To extend the life of the device, Surface Hub 2 uses smart sensors to turn off the LCD when it detects that no one is near it, so there is no need to turn it off at the end of the day. If the unit is installed in a 24-hour traffic situation, the sensors can be disabled so that it can comply with the 18-hours-per day (usage) requirement.

Can I use System Centre Configuration Manager (SCCM) to manage settings on Surface Hub 2?

Can I use System Centre Configuration Manager (SCCM) to manage settings on Surface Hub 2?

Yes. Surface Hub 2 can be managed using your existing Configuration Manager (CM) infrastructure. The current branch of CM supports modern devices that do not require the Configuration Manager client to manage them, including Surface Hub 2. This requires an Intune subscription, but you can continue to use CM’s administrative console as your “single pane of glass” for managing all of your devices. Note that you can also manage Surface Hub 2 using an existing MDM solution that you may be using for iOS and Android devices.
