  1. Continue and enhance Linux support

    I'd like to see the Linux client have more functionality as the Windows client.
    o Automatic deployment
    o ability to reinstall
    o more detailed status returned
    o ability to query existance of certain files on a linux system

    • Make EndPoint protection client for Unix installable unattended

      The SCEP client for Unix can not be installed unattended as it requires console input. This means that you cannot use ConfigMgr to deploy it Unix clients. In our environment we hacked the installer script to remove the prompts but we'd rather not have to do this.

          • Let the Linux SCCM Client make use of the Enrollment Point Site Server Role

            Currently in an HTTPS only SCCM infrastructure it is cumbersome to get client certificates for Linux computers from a Microsoft CA. It would be great if the Linux SCCM client could make use of the Enrollment Point to make this process of enrolling for and renewing certificates easier.

            • Make the enrollment of Macs more automated.

              Make the enrollment of Macs more automated. This could be done with a .pkg and maybe a xml or some other config file maybe enroll with AD bound macs auto. Just seems like it should be easier than putting in a server name and username and password

              • Allow the Linux CM (Configuration Manager) agent to connect to Secondary Sites

                While deploying Configuration Manager current branch to our Linux servers, we discovered (and confirmed with MSFT) that the Linux CM agent will not communicate with Secondary Sites, only the Primary site. This causes us unexpected WAN network traffic. This is also different behavior from the Windows CM agent which makes optimal site design impossible.

                • IBCM for Linux/Unix

                  IBCM does not work for Linux/Unix.

                  Can this be looked at, or could the option to use a 'gateway' server (like OpsMgr) be looked at.

                  • Awaiting Ubuntu 16.04 supported SCEP and SCCM agent

                    Please provide new SCEP and SCCM agents that can support Ubuntu 16.04 OS. Also, management layer for SCEP non-Windows agent in SCCM instead of managing it via SCOM.

                    • automatically management client logfile

                      automatically management client logfile is needed. Other Tools eq logrotate and so on are known but not unrewarding. We have to optimize the disk space, so no big logfiles schould created.
