Podcast 258 - SharePoint 2016 Beta Watch Day 17

In this episode I lament that we still haven't seen the much anticipated SharePoint 2016 Beta. I took this as another opportunity to tell folks how they can get prepared. Then I talk a little about the August 2015 CU for SharePoint 2013 and some of the good and bad things it does. Then I transition into one of my favorite new topics, hybrid deployments.

User Profile Service

Correct me if I'm wrong, but somewhere I read the UPS in 2016 was going away.  Alas, it shows up again in my initial install.
I see some differences in the Site Collections (how to's, etc) but Central Admin looks pretty much the same.  I know the way servers are added to the farm has changed, and it looks to be for the better, so what else did I miss?
Keep up the great work!

Re: User Profile Service

The User Profile Service itself is there, as you've discovered. What they took out with the FIM based _Sync_. The only option now is the simple Sync we had back in SharePoint 2007. If you need the addition features of FIM you have to install it separately and wire it up to the UPA.
