  1. Stick WU server in registryĀ during client upgrade

    During an automatic CM client upgrade there is a risk the update agent gets out to internet and download updates and upgrades from Microsoft Update servers before the new client agent is installed. During a CM client upgrade the local GPO/WU server registry settings should be sticky to block this behavior.

  2. SCCM ability to change office 365 channel like in GPO Settings

    Would like to be able to change O365 Channels for Clients in SCCM,
    Like you can in GPO... currently GPO wont honor the channel I want because SCCM is managing the O365 Client.

  4. Add 'Next Run Time' Column in the Automatic Deployment Rules

    In the Automatic Deployment Rules window, it would be helpful to see the next scheduled time the ADR is supposed to run. If it doesn't have one, then the cell would be blank.

  5. Add More User Control Over Windows 10 Branch Upgrades

    Currently Windows 10 branch upgrades act similarly to Windows updates. We would like to have more control to release them not unlike the Windows 10 upgrade released by Microsoft where there is a deadline but say, daily notices that users should upgrade.

    It would also be handy to have a message talking about the upgrade taking longer than normal with some kind of time given say 30-45 minutes or more accurate times based of telemetry if it's available.

    As our fleet moves to Windows 10 we foresee this being more and more an issue.

  6. Allow us to configure Proxy server settings for the console that is downloading Software Updates

    On our Primary site server, under Admin > Site System properties, we have set the proxy settings with username and password.

    In our company, Domain Admins are blocked at the proxy server from accessing the internet. My colleague, who is an SCCM admin, but not a Domain Admin, can download Software Updates and add them to a Deployment Package. I am a Domain Admin, and when I try this, it fails with: "Error: Failed to download content ID 16902216. Error %1 is not a valid Win32 application."

    So, that proxy setting is used by some functions of ConfigMgr, but notā€¦

  7. ADR engine improvements

    - when naming ADR, it would be good to have an option to create a name convention when creating the update group. not just <ADRName>+DateTime, but could use some variables like %MM% %YYYY%, etc.

    - it would be good to have some exclusions options on the search, like exclude when text does not contain, maybe restrict by platform, etc. like the filter we can create on the console but adding options for a more complex with and's and or's

    - multiple collection/template based on time as well as ability to exclude updates based on update group. scenario is when youā€¦

  8. Please forward internal links for Features on Demand and languagepacks to WSUS

    On Windows 10 i can download and change the user language, but as SCCM-Client i use WSUS for Software updates. Windows 10 can't connect to Windows Update or WSUS to download LP's or Features. But both is in WSUS available. Only a Workaround (disable or remove the UseWSUSServer = 1 DWORD in Registry) make thr download available for a short time

  9. Force Software Updates to be installed from console

    Right-click the device in console and force all available software updates to be installed immediately, regardless of deadlines and maintenance windows.

  10. Bug - SCCM 2012 SP2 CU3 - Software Updates are all set to a 10 minute timeout.

    All software updates are set to 10 minutes, and newer SCCM will set the new cumulative updates to 30 minutes. But SCCM 2012 leaves this setting at 10 minutes. Some updates are already 1gb+ in size, therefore are timing out when deployed.

  11. Software update deployment flexibility

    Currently, there are two options that can be configured in CM to control when update actions occur on CM client devices. One allows us to set a date/time for when updates are available. The other sets a deadline date/time when updates are to be installed and a reboot process is initiated. My recommendation is to divide these two update scheduling options into three options.

    1. When updates are available (date/time)
    2. When updates must be installed by (date/time)
    3. When a reboot must occur by (following the installation of updates)

    The option for when a reboot occurs should allow forā€¦

  12. Automate OS Images by integrating the latest Software Updates from the Configuration Manager Console

    Rather than manually updating Build & Captured images every month and selecting when it's applied. set up an automated rule that applies Windows updates on a scheduled basis to a windows image that, then updates the distribution point(s) automatically.

  13. Software Update Groups - Speed up 'Edit membership'

    'Edit membership' is unuseable if you've got many update groups. Please add simple tools like 'Add update(s) to existing group(s)', 'Remove update(s) from group(s)' and 'Remove Update(s) from this group' (if you're in context of an update group).
    The sub dialogues of this aditional functions shouldn't provide the information in which update group the patches are listed because the query runs too long. Just let us choose the groups form a simple search list. A filter to minimize the list of results would also be fine.

  14. Allow Maintenance Windows To Work correctly with include rules

    When you add an include rule to a collection that has a maintenace window the machines that were "included" never get the maintenace window for that collection.

  15. Add Columns to ADR Deployments

    Expose more of the properties from ADR deployment settings as column headings in the lower-section "Deployment Settings" box when viewing ADRs in the console. For example, schedules, user experience, download settings, etc.

    It would be nice to be able to see and change all properties of an ADR after it is created, such as deadline times, availability times, etc.

  17. Add "Product Family" to the search feature of Software Updates and ADR

    Currently, the "Product" can be used as a search filter for Software Updates node and for ADRs, but I would like to see "Product Family" as well.

    This would help in situations where you want all updates targeting the Windows OS products, but you don't want to specify 10 individual products in a search.

  20. "select all"

    With 1606 we can multi-select updates thankfully however on newly imaged machines there may be 80 or more updates to select.
    It would be really nice to have the ability to Select All security updates with one click.
