  1. "client is Windows 7, 8, or 8.1, and express download not anabled yet" error

    I have enabled express update on SCCM 1802, and my windows 7 OSes are not getting patched, instead I am getting
    "CBundledUpdate::OnJobAttach - failed with error 0x87d0066a"
    "Failed to perform Job Attach to update, error = 0x87d0066a."
    "client is Windows 7, 8, or 8.1, and express download not anabled yet" errors on UpdateHandler.log
    Not to mention there is a typo "anabled". I can't find any document about how to enable windows 7's express update function on your M$ sites.

    • Software updates query

      I would like the software updates module have an improved filter.
      Basically I want to create filters which can use NOT LIKE on columns such as severity or Product.

      • s int32 instead string.

        In this way we could compare built compilation versión better. It's useful this comparation for build dynamics collections throught queries which gathers device with lower built compilation than current ones.

        • Customized Pilot user section in Software Center

          It would ne nice to have the ability to flip a switch that allows users to then see an area in Software center where they could join the company pilot group. Currently we have to manually maintain a list of users. This way, users could opt in to the pilot group for their machine. Pilot deployments would then be distinguishable from standard deployments so the user would know what was going on. Also a way for them to send feedback to the SCCM team would be great, even if it was just a thumbs up/down.

          • Windows 10 Servicing Management without Task Sequences

            The idea of leveraging a Windows 10 Servicing plan is great. It's a relatively simple process that can keep companies on a defined Windows 10 lifecycle. However, due to the nature of the upgrades and processes in which things get reset or reinstalled customers are forced to leverage task sequences. With the announcement of Windows 10 1803 pre/post configuration scripts, there now appears to be somewhat of an avenue where these items can start to be managed. However, when you look at our customers failure percentages for any deployment, you have to ask yourself, would a customer really want a…

                  • Manage Internet Facing SUP using weights

                    We have Internet SUP's in AMER, APAC, and EMEA. I would like to see the local client not randomly pick a SUP from the available list, but be able to determine the best SUP based upon location, response time, and home site.

                    • Bug: Folders for Software Updates are not independent for Windows 10 Servicing and Office 365

                      Consider the following user story on 1802:

                      I decided to organize all my software updates that are synchronized in my hierarchy by creating folders such as YYYY-MM. After performing move operations on these updates that were released within this format I noticed that the folders are duplicated underneath the 'Windows 10 Servicing" node and Office 365 Updates node. When I browse for the updates in the folders I created under "All Software Updates" my updates visible as expected; however these folders are triplicated down the side of the console and are all empty in other nodes.

                      From the All Software…

                      • Add an entry to Audit Status Messages when an ADR is manually ran

                        Currently the only way to tell who manually initiated an ADR is to check the SMSProv.log. However, since this log is recreated so frequently it's easy to lose this record. Due to the impact that a rogue ADR can have on an environment, a more reliable way of auditing ADR's that were manually initiated should be added. First idea that comes to mind is creating an Audit Status Message.

                        • Patch Download should be optionally done by the site server

                          To make automatic deployment rules work site servers in enterprise environments needs proxy and firewall exceptions. So site servers should be able to download software updates. But in remote console sessions the console users also need proxy permissions because the downloads are done in context of the console users and for their workstations firewall exceptions need to be defined. This makes it unimpossible to run the console on a secured Workstation by an administrator account that can not access the internet. It would be usefull if we had the option to choose who downloads the patches. In example "use my…

                          • ADR add possibility to set a User for "download software updates from a location on my network"

                            Please add a possibility to specify a user which the ADR will use to download the content.
                            In a infrastructure with a DMZ and a own untrusted domain, it is not possible to set a user which is downloading the Updates from a WSUS. Till now SCCM is always using the system account of the Site Server to download the Updates.

                                  • Console notice when new or revised Update is available-per ADRs

                                    Patch Tuesday can be hard, especially like April 2018 when an update is expired after 2 days and new version is available. Unless you knew to pull the new update in or have the ADR set to run every day, there is no way to know about this update. I don't want just a auto push on Friday Moring of Patch Tuesday week with out some kind of notice first.
                                    This would generate a notice that a patch X has been removed and patch Y has been added.

                                    This would not good for Defender or some other updates but If…

                                      • Software Updates should support specifying order of install

                                        Request being file on behalf of a large communications customer. Please ping me for any specific details required.

                                        Based on the recent challenges with 4088878 and 4088875

                                        We released a fix, 4099950, to resolve the issue. Our guidance is that we should install 4099950 prior to the March update. The software updates mechanism in ConfigMgr currently does not provide a means of specifying an installation order for updates. Scenarios such as this underscore the need for such capabilities.

                                        • Ability to modify user notifications to include expected update duration

                                          In SCCM, administrators should have the ability to modify the text in notification balloons that currently states:

                                          Software changes are required
                                          Your IT Department requires changes to the software on your computer. Click here for options

                                          Users are not given the information needed (ie. how long will it take) to make the decision when to start the update.
