MinRole Improvements in SharePoint 2016 Feature Pack 1

A couple of weeks ago at Ignite Jeff Teper announced that in November we SharePoint admins would have even more to be thankful for than a belly full of turkey and mashed potatoes. Feature Pack 1 for SharePoint 2016, originally promised to us in 2017, will actually be out in November of 2016. Hooray!

I’ll have a larger write-up on Feature Pack 1 in general, but one of the biggest parts of the FP1 package is the improvements to MinRole. Those improvements deserve an entire article all to themselves. So, I wrote one. For my friends at Petri.com. You can read all about it here:

MinRole Improvements in SharePoint 2016 Feature Pack 1

Read it. Like it. Share it with your friends. Smile

Availability and sizing

Thanks for sharing!
Three quick questions:
a) any idea about more specific timing then 'nov 2016'?
b) sizing of combined roles: will this impact minimal reqs of a SharePoint server (now 16GB 4 procs for a minrole prd server)?
c) when installing a new (combined) farm: any ideas yet about installation process? (hint: RTM bits installation, but then: combined MinRoles will only be present in FP1 ... hence FP1 = full installer op product?)
Thx!
