  1. Here's a really wonderfull idea, how about you make the office 365 installer actually work when you deploy them to machines.

    Created an Office 365 installer using the console and deployed it to machines, it doesn't work. When I copy the files manually and run them it gives me a very un-descriptive message saying a compatible version of office needs to be installed. So do I have to install office to install office? How does that work? Seriously, don't even put these features into SCCM unless they work, I've wasted a day on this. Absolute joke, we pay a fortune for SCCM.

  2. Easy way to change Settings package in Task sequence.

    Now if you want to change settings package you need to manually find every single instance of Gather, and replace settings package. Why not have it set as TS preference, and you could set it once for a TS, like you do when you use wizard to set up TS.

  4. Password Protection only for "Unkown Computer"

    Currently you can only protect a PXE enabled DP completely with a Password. So ZTI would brake for known Computers. But to prevent unknown Computers to accidentally been reinstalled a Password Protection is usefull.

    Please make it possible that a DP only asks unknown Computers for a PW to proceed the OSD. Know Computers which will be reinstalled should not be ask for a PW so that ZTI is possible.

    Thanks an best Regards

  5. Setup Windows and ConfigMgr TS step customization

    The "Setup Windows and ConfigMgr" task sequence step could use more customization. Add a way to change the restart time-out and message contained within that step. Add the option to run packages after the in-between reboots. Also improve the status bar messages because they are pretty vague (I doubt it is really trying for 5+ minutes to initialize the configuration manager client).

  6. Option to Remove from Domain first during Apply Network Settings

    Currently there is an option during Apply Network Settings to join the computer to a specific OU. If the machine already exists, it does not move it to the OU specified. Additionally, if the machine is disabled the domain join would fail.

    Adding an option to remove the workstation from the domain first before joining would correct both of these issues. It would also allow for AD group membership to be cleared in the event the workstation was moving to a new department.

    When auto-launching a PowerShell script inside of a customized version of WinPE, the script will fail if an Import-module function is required in the script. a workaround is to open PowerShell, manually import the module before running the script and it will work. It appears that PowerShell is not fully initializing if you call a script as a command line parameter of Powershell.exe...

  8. SCCM 1702 - OSD issue on Lenovo x270 - OSD Task Sequence Error 0x80091007 - Hash could not be matched for the downloded content.

    we are doing a windows 10 upgrade project. It goes well but we have an issue with 3 Lenovo X270 laptops.

    These machines could not get OS image during OSD process. The strange is that they could not get any image from sccm because the osdapplyos.exe hash checker said the hash is incorrect...

    We tried almost everything:
    - redeploying image to DP (only 3 laptops affected, others could be installed properly)
    - running hw diag (all affected laptops are healthy according to lenovo and 3party hw diag apps
    - installing on other switch, other port, other cable, on dock stationā€¦

  9. Task Sequence Steps - Add ability to run step under specific account already stored in "Administration > Security > Accounts"

    The ability to run a step under a specific account is fantastic but if it had the functionality to select from a list of the service accounts already being used by Configuration manager, then updating all task sequences when you change the password would be a much simpler task.

  11. Use Servicing Content for Upgrade Operating System Task

    Instead of importing full Win10 media to use for Upgrade Operating System task, allow option to use Feature Updates from servicing as content for in place upgrade. One scenario this would help close the gap on is deploying branch upgrades with Task Sequences for Internet based clients. as there is no WinPE requirement. Sequence is initiated and run from within Windows, any pre- and post-install tasks requiring content can be provided by cloud DP, and content for Win10 branch build could be pulled directly from Microsoft the same as Software Updates can currently be set to fall back to MSā€¦

    would be nice to just remove that one extra step before the task sequence starts

  13. OSD support for bitlocker encryption above defaults

    Currently in OSD you cannot without an additional step set up set non defaults for encryption. Please add options for the OSD steps pre provision or enable bitlocker to have options for non default encryption like xts-aes 256.

  15. Approval process for deploying required task sequences

    It would be great to have an approval process for deploying required task sequences because they are such a high risk. This could be similar to how group policy is handled with AGPM.

  16. Recurring deployment scheduling

    We would like to see a way to create a custom, recurring schedule for task sequences deployed to a collection. Currently we can set a start and end time for the deployment. We deploy large packages through our task sequences, and we have a lot of people imaging computers. If we could limit the deployment to only be available after-hours and on the weekends, this would prevent someone, maybe a new person, from deciding to image multiple labs at one time during business hours.

  17. Merge Default App Associations

    Running the command "Dism /Online /Import-DefaultAppAssociations:\Server\Share\AppAssoc.xml" overwrites all App Associations. This can result in Windows 10 automatically fixing broken extensions, confusing the both Admin and User.

    Please add a "Merge" switch.

    This would be very helpful for Enterprises who want to manage default applications, extensions, or protocol during OSD.

    Otherwise, the OSD admin must manage all default applications, extensions, and protocols separately, or create a custom dynamic solution.

  18. In OS OSD launches to overide existing deployments

    In OS OSD launches to overide existing deployments - If you are blasting aware an OS why do you need to wait for a patching and application installs? This would speed up OSD testing.

  19. Make USMT more streamlined

    I would love to see a more streamlined USMT process. Currently it's a multiple step process, which requires you to create the associations, and then target the source and destination PC's via task sequence. Ideally all you would need to do is setup the association, and the migration would then kick off without the need for a Capture and Restore task sequence.

  20. Whenever the Task Sequence fails, give a DIRECT way to EASILY show and/or save the smsts log WHEREVER it is buried.

    Because it occurs quite often since there are so many ways to make a TS fail, and the guy in front of the computer may be on the other side of the planet, not knowing what a CLI is...
