  2. Task sequence deployment to run when no user is logged on.

    It would be great to have the same user experience conditions available in Application deployments for Task Sequence deployments. That way we could deploy required in-place upgrades of Win10 that will install once the user logs off and not rely on the user to start the Available deployment themselves.

  3. ipv6 relay encapsulation support

    This will probably be very low prio for most people, but here goes. when SCCM PXE is done in an IPv6 network, where DHCP is handled over a dhcp relay, PXE boot may fail with error "invalid packet structure".
    cause analysis led to the following statement:

    "Your relay agent is encapsulating the original DHCPv6 packet in a relay-forward message (12). This is currently not supported by the SCCM PXE server. The SCCM PXE server currently only supports bare forwarded DHCPv6 packets.

    DHCPv6 message 12 is a quite tricky for the current SCCM PXE server because you can have nested message12s."

  4. Interactive "Run Powershell Script"

    When you use the "Run Powershell Script" step (Enter a PowerShell script in my case), it always adds "-noninteractive".
    This is problematic when trying to show an interactive GUI.
    Workaround is to have the ps1-file in a package and run it from a "Run Command Line" step.

  5. TS Manager is not supporting resume of Content Download upon manual/forced restart leading to partial caching of content

    TS Manager is not supporting resume of Content Download upon manual/forced restart leading to partial caching of content. Noticed an issue where during downloading of boot image or any other package associated with the TS, if the system was restarted or shutdown by user or by any other means, the ccmcache folder is updated with the partial content. When the system is up again and the TS gets executed, it assumes the content is downloaded properly. Contacted Microsoft Premier Support and this seemed to a design limitation where I stringly feel it is a bug than a design limitation. Howā€¦

  6. Application installation inside Task-Sequence

    It would be nice to install the Applications assigned to device and to Primary user inside the Task-Sequence.
    Criteria could be followed:
    - Install Deployment (not available)
    - not retired
    - last Version / Revision of Application / DeploymentType

    Maybe, some more criteria are possible or required :-)

    Benefit:
    If the Task-Sequence finished, Client is ready to use without waiting of install applications aso.

  7. Windows 10 Start Menu Designer for SCCM

    This is more of a config management item. Each release of Win 10 comes with different ways to create and deploy start menus it seems. This is very frustrating and time consuming. It would be awesome if we could have a drag and drop menu emulator and editor to be used in designing, testing, and deploying start menus built into the SCCM console. Integration with apps and packages would be optimal. A desktop layout designer would also go well with this. Give us the ability to manage shortcuts and whatnot in a more intuitive manner that doesn't require piecemeal GPOā€¦

  8. Task Sequence Right-click option to remove unused content

    Task sequences have the right-click option to distribute related content to DP's and they should have the option to remove unneeded (i.e. not used by any other task sequence/deployment) content from distribution points when expiring old task sequences.

  9. Integrate SCCM OSD task sequence domain-join process with CyberArk secure password management.

    Integrate SCCM OSD task sequence domain-join process with CyberArk secure password management. The task to use the domain-join process does not have the capability of going to the CyberArk API and retrieving an encrypted password (dynamic) during each OSD deployment.

  10. Option to prevent user sign on during task sequence upgrade after a system restart

    Due to us upgrading Office and Windows 10 versions we have noticed that a number of users are logging in and breaking the Office upgrades it would be appreciated if SCCM had an option to not allow the user the ability to sign back into the device until the task sequence has finished running.

    An example of this is when the task sequence runs in WINPE mode.

  11. Prevent devices with Modern Standby from going to sleep

    Until 20H1 this was able to be done by setting the CsEnabled registry key to 0 during the build, this key is no longer present in windows. We need a way to prevent devices with Modern Standby from going to sleep during the build.

  14. Task sequence Powershell Step - Add Package reference similar to Run Command Line Step

    Hi

    Please could you add the package reference in the "Run Powershell Script" Step in Task sequence. The option to select a packaged Script is possible, but when running an "entered" script and referencing a package is not there. This is possible in the "run Command line" entry.

    Regards Adriaan

  15. Enable BranchCache on Task Sequence - Download On Demand Content

    For a Task Sequence, any content you have referenced and as long as you have "Download All Content Before Starting" set on the Deployment, it will download the Content into the CCMCache using BranchCache. However, we don't want to "Download all Content before Starting" in several situations, and in those cases, The Task Sequence doesn't leverage BranchCache at all for the download, which is VERY Bad.

    Please enable the ability for a Task Sequence to leverage BranchCache during an active Task Sequence when it downloads content during the Task Sequence.

    Priority 1, Make this work in Full OS
    Priority 2,ā€¦

  16. Increased size of WinPE Scratch Space

    With the ability to add powershell to your boot wim (adds 100mb), + drivers for your machines and a couple of tools the 512MB is not sufficient especially if say you want to update the bios as part of a bare metal build. I.e. Dell tool + bios update program + bios file - you cannot reboot the machine back to the wim because there is not enough RamDisk space to hold it all. 512MB is tiny in todays terms, please can we have a much larger upper limit.

  19. OSD - Create Variable to control creation of DisableCMDRequest.TAG in Setup Windows & ConfigMgr Step

    During OSD, specifically the Setup Windows & Configuration Manager Step, the step creates the file DisableCMDRequest.TAG right before rebooting from WinPE into the Full OS

    This disables the F10 prompt during the Windows Setup.

    Could you allow us to change this behavior via TS variable?
    Example: SMTSTDisableCMDRequest = False

    [Bonus] Then also automatically set the it to false if TSDebugMode = True

    This would be helpful for troubleshooting Windows Errors during Setup before the TS kicks back in after setup. (SetupComplete.cmd runs)

    Thanks for your suggestion. Updating status to noted – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each value.

    Can you elaborate with some examples of why this would be needed?

    We already have the task sequence debugger and comprehensive logging. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/osd/deploy-use/debug-task-sequence

    Also, Windows developed SetupDiag which can be run from the task sequence or used on setup.exe completion https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/upgrade/setupdiag

  20. OSD on WinPE boot failures should not force WinPE to simply reboot without displaying some error information.

    Often times, when WinPE boots and there is an error before OSD completely loads, WinPE simply reboots without showing any errors and does not give you the opportunity to gather log files via console. While this issue is typically a driver or time issue, it's impossible to know for sure without looking at the logs. This forces the techs to submit tickets and for the SysAdmins to guess as to the cause of the issue.
