  1. Nested task sequence different user targets

    Presently nested task sequences only run under a single context. There are some workloads that it would be helpful if a child task sequence could run under a different context. For example, the system account of the computer may not have sufficient rights to add an object to an AD group, but capturing administrative credentials and passing to a child task sequence would facilitate this function.

  3. Offline Servicing

    Could you add an option to add some sort of version control for offline servicing, i.e. option to alter the name or version number. i know there is a BAk file but this get this in the console with new versions.

    Also an option to clean the image after an offline update. as the image can grow quite a bit after the updates.

  6. Allow users to have different view/copy/modify permissions spanning across different Task Sequence folders

    I would love to have the option to allow our users to have access to some Task Sequence folders but, not other folders.

    I get the option to limit the folders but this prevents them from either being viewed or being copied/modified.

    I would like my Task Sequences viewable but not editable. It would be great if users could copy from 'read only' area into their 'test' area and can the create/modify without any risk.

  7. Option for Task Sequence to require local admin rights to run

    Add an option to only allow a Task Sequence to be run by a user with local administrative rights.

    This will allow a Task Sequence to be advertised to systems but ensure that only support staff who have local admin rights can initiate the Task Sequence, preventing standard users from accidentally re-imaging their computer.

    In the past we have used the option to 'run another program first' on a Task Sequence and call a script to evaluate the current users groups/permissions, but it would be really useful if this was a native feature.

  9. download wim directly from SCCM console

    Allow to download windows wim file from SCCM console. Windows 10 is available from online publicly using media creator tool. So adding this option will make it easier to download in one place

  10. Add option to place DPs into maintenance mode while running an OS upgrade task sequence

    Add an option to place DPs into maintenance mode while running an OS upgrade task sequence on the upgrade operating system step. Currently we run a powershell script every half hour to place non-responsive DPs into maintenance mode and bring any currently in maintenance mode that come back online out of maintenance mode, but it would be nice to allow the task sequence to do this to clear up the distribution queue.

  12. Software udpates for workgroup machines doesn't work during build and capture.

    Software updates for workgroup machines doesn't work during build and capture. Panu says it works if you domain join; and then patch; and then leave the domain... but doesn't work if you are workgroup machine one.

    Thanks for the feedback

    What’s happening here is the policies are not visible across different sites. So, if a client is already assigned to site A, the Management Point/Distribution Point on site B wonā€™t be able to access those policies and boot the client.

    The guidance is to delete the record – same as what you’ve been using

    We filed a documentation update to add the same information to https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt627940.aspx

  14. Windows 10 20.04

    After creating new deploymentshares, and then building a new 2019 deployment server. MDT can't deploy Windows 10 20.04. 6 days spent reading forums, docs and so much more. I have applied the bdd patche as requested but I still get a total failure.
    Sysprep simply does not open or run. The system restarts with out running sysprep. There is nothing on the subject to help me.

  15. Operating System Deployment and Power Management - temporarily disable automatic sleep for large content download

    A nice feature would be an integrated solution to allow a computer to remain awake during large content download. We currently have the ability to WOL for deployments, but in a some situations where content is not pre-staged/downloaded or if you use the option to download all content locally before running a task sequence the computer can sleep during content download. A use case is for this example is Windows 10 in-place upgrade TskSeq. Please implement a Power Availability Request based on process or thread to resolve this issue. The alternative of managing custom power plans or hacking a toggleā€¦

  17. Allow Windows features to be enabled and disabled within OS image

    Add the option to the GUI to enable or disable windows features within an OS install WIM in SCCM rather than relying on DISM. This would allow for significantly easier OS deployment and provide and easy method of verifying the features enabled in a WIM.

  19. Task Sequence Import - Mass Overwrite / Ignore

    When importing a TS, and you have multiple dependencies to import with it, would be nice to have a check box to overwrite all, instead of clicking on each one to overwrite, or ignore.

  20. Operating system upgrade: delete previous installations after Windows 10 upgrade

    After an operating system upgrade, it would be nice to be able to delete the files of the previous installation in order to free up disk space. Cleanmgr.exe doesn't work under SYSTEM context.
