Microsoft introduces flighting for Windows Server insiders
2024-01-26 19:02

Microsoft has launched flighting for Windows Server systems enrolled in its Windows Insider open software testing program.

"If you have a recent Windows Server insider build installed, you can now go to Windows Update in Settings app, and check for updates. This will bring you a newer build, as a Feature update," said Microsoft software engineer Artem Pronichkin.

"From now on, we plan to publish each new build to Windows Update at the same time we publish the familiar ISO to our Windows Server insider community. It's your choice to upgrade using Setup as before, or to use Windows Update for the same."

The "Flighting" feature is exclusive to Windows Server preview releases, requiring administrators to manually install preview updates on Windows Server 2022 or Windows Server 2019 production systems.

Operating system upgrades via Windows Update are exclusively accessible through the Settings app for Windows Server with Desktop Experience.

Microsoft also aims to expand the Windows Server Insider flighting functionality over time by adding additional Insider channels, just like those available for Windows 11 flighting.
