  • Never mind I've discovered the answer

    if you use the ContainerImage  provider for the gallery to get the TP5 images

    PS>  ContainerImage\Find-ContainerImage | ft -a

    Name              Version         Source                Summary

    If you use the ContainerProvider provider you get the TP4 images

    PS>  ContainerProvider\Find-ContainerImage | ft -a

    Name              Version      Source Description
    ----              -------      ------ -----------
    NanoServer        10.0.10586.0        Container OS Image of Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 4 : Nano Server Installation
    WindowsServerCore 10.0.10586.0        Container OS Image of Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview : Windows Server Core Installation

    Its really inexcusable that the provider was changed without a proper announcement. I've realised that the online documentation now shows to use ContainerImage but its not obvious that things have changed.

    The old provider should be withdrawn
