  1. Change how software update maximum runtime is used in maintenance windows

    Currently, when a software update group is deployed to a device with a maintenance window, the estimated time required is calculated from the maximum runtime of each update. If this time is longer than the available maintenance window, the updates are not installed. The maximum runtime of updates has been increasing and the total maximum runtime is often longer than reasonable maintenance windows.

    I propose instead of calculating the total maximum runtime, each update be handled individually and compared to the remaining time in the maintenance window. For example, update 1 has a maximum runtime of 60 minutes. There isā€¦

  2. Make SUP products searchable

    Let's improve the Software Update Point Component Properties window by adding a text input box to allow searching/filtering through the available products.

    Scrolling through the list is not a user-friendly approach. Add to that the rather frequent product name changes and additions.

    A search box would make it easier to find and select the desired products in the list.

  3. Ability to deploy ARM64 Hardware drivers and Firmware with SCCM WSUS

    With all ARM64 firmware and driver updates only available from WU and no OEMs offering direct downloads; please provide the ability for WSUS to import ARM64 firmware and drivers. Many enterprise companies cannot use Intune to manage as it disconnects reporting and ease of deployment managment from SCCM. Please include all OEM ARM64 not just Surface Pro X.

  4. SCUP has a package limit of 2GB

    SCUP has a package limit of 2GB built into the code:

    newItem.FileSize = Convert.ToInt32(new FileInfo(validPackageSource).Length);
    --- This is an Int32, and the max size of an Int32 is 2GB.

    This should be changed to either UINT or ULONG to allow for larger update packages.

  5. Orchestration Groups query

    Make it possible to add also "Membership rules" to Orchestration Groups.
    Static lists are outdated. Server groups was better.

  6. M365 Offline Updates Exporter Utility - Language Selection

    M365 Offline Updates Exporter Utility - Language Selection

    Provide language option for OfficeUpdateExporter.exe so that only content related to language of choice is downloaded for an update (rather than update content for all languages). This would reduce a significant amount of time and disk space when gathering M365 App updates.

  7. Customisation of restart message

    The pop-up message displayed requiring the user to restart the pc after a software or update is intstall does not display information regarding the software requiring restart. The client settings in SCCM does not provide the possibility of making any such granular configuration. I therefore request Microsoft to provide a way of customising the pop-up messages in the concole

  8. Context menue - ADD function "Expired update"

    Context menue - ADD function "Expired update"

    it would make live easier to expire updates directly in the memcm console instead of using powershell or the WSUS...

    specially in the 3rd party patching area it would make sense to get rid of unwanted updates in an easy professional and smart way...

  9. Auto Phased Deployment

    Scenario: Right now I have about 8000 computers that need feature updates. I don't want to update them all at one time. It would be nice to tell CM to update one big collection, but do a set number per week. For instance, create a collection of 8000 machines, and set it to update 250 per week until it is done, or set a gradual duration of say 6 months to update the whole collection. This would work great for large application deployments as well. This way, the deployment could also be stopped if problems arise.

  10. Have Software Centre Updates include more info than status: past due will be installed

    Instead of having a status: past due will be installed. Include a date and time when the update will either try to be installed or will retry.

  11. Set maintenance windows just after Patch Tuesday

    Could we set the maintenance window just after patch Tuesday as Patch Tuesdays might be on the second or third Tuesday of the month. And the current setting could only happen on specified day of the month. Could we have a option just after after Tuesday,

  12. Prevent CM clients from attempting to switch SUP's when there is no network connectivity of any kind

    It's rare today to be in locations without any network connectivity at all, but it does happen. In this situation the CM client will continually attempt to switch SUP's. This can result in a user returning to the office and receive patching errors because the CM client happens to be trying to reach a SUP it can't contact, a DMZ server for example. Yes, this should correct itself over time, but preventing it from happing in the first place would be preferred.
    So the suggestion is to add some sort of network connectivity check to the SUP selection process toā€¦

  13. If trustedinstaller is disabled manual deployment of patches should report failure instead of not applicable

    When an MS endpoint has the trustedinstaller disabled, and a requirement to manually deploy a patch is in place, the system will report an update as not applicable. This should instead be reported as a block or failure during the check process. This in turn should be used for sccm reporting as the system will show as compliant when it is in fact not complaint.

  14. Allow ADR scheduling to be relative to the ADR day, but specify the time as static

    Right now, ADR scheduling is based on the time at which the ADR completes. We would like to schedule the ADR's as relative by day (ie, updates are available 3 days after ADR runs, and deadlined 7 days after the ADR runs), but static by time (ie, 1am).

    This way, we can make sure deployment times are never changing, even while we have the flexibility of setting deployment days based on the ADR.

  15. Ability to control when a client downloads updates for a deployment

    Have a separate deployment setting for when the updates will be downloaded by the client so that the client can download updates prior to the deadline time or even "Download As Soon As Possible". The setting would be useful for required and available deployments so that the clients could pre-cache updates.
    Options could be "As Soon As Possible. or a specific date and time.

  16. More options for Software Update Summarization

    It would be nice to have more options within the software update summarization. Today you only have the options to select days/hours. I have seen/heard where larger organizations have trouble running this in a timely manner. Some options would be to only summarize updates that are deployed and/or summarize updates that have been released/revised in x amount of days.

  17. Deactivation of Downloads and Updates in Windows Store App

    We distribute Windows Apps and App Updates over SCCM and there is no Policy or Registry Key to deactivate "Downloads and Updates" in the Windows Store App. The Policy for Deactivation of automatic Updates is already set, but the User can still manually update the Apps in the Windows Store App. So we have a mismatch of App Versions between SCCM and Windows Store. We cannot block the native Store app, because we have several other Business Apps installed, which needs the MS Store App Access. Please inform us, when additional Policy or Registry Key for the Windows Store Appā€¦

  18. Fix extremely prolonged software updates synchronization time with Surface category enabled

    When the Surface driver category is enabled at the Software Update Point role, currently here a software updates synchronization cycle takes around 100 minutes. When disabling the Surface category, even with 3rd party drivers and -updates enabled, the sync time including Microsoft product updates is only 10 minutes.
    We expect that the Surface sync works differential, same as it does for any other updates. So it does not make sense why it runs so unnecessarily long, even if one runs 2 syncs in a row where surely no changes happened at Surface drivers.

  19. Add SharePoint Patching process built-into SCCM

    Out of box process for patching SharePoint should be available in SCCM. If its a pre-built task sequence, or SCCM detects the roles installed on each server and knows how to patch those components. This primarily relates to security patching, but the process should be much easier.

  20. The ability to log off disconnected users from servers.

    Hi All,

    We notice that when using ADR's, that servers will not restart in their defined maintance Window when there is a disconnect user running in the background.

    A option to log off all disconnected user within the deployment of a ADR of perhaps in server groups would be a great addition.
