  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. ON-OFF switch for the encryption function

    Make an adjustment in the system settings to allow - or disallow the encryption of the harddisk. That way ransomware couldn't do any damage to user data anymore

  8. Offline staging of MDT

    The option Offline Staging of MDT works great to update image with latest patches even office is possible. Please include this option so we can get rid of MDT.

  9. Conditional 'continue on error' in task sequence

    With a bare metal build if something fails I don't care, I can kick off the TS again.
    But in some situations (eg. when using USMT) if a build fails because one app didn't install it can be very difficult to recover from. In these situations I would like to continue on error to minimize any issues, so being able to 'conditionally' continue on error would be very nice indeed.

  10. Add option in Task Sequence Reboot Computer Step

    Add an option to the Reboot Computer Step that uses a TS variable to decide whether or not to reboot to the Boot Wim or the OS on the hard drive. With the ability to call other TS's within a TS (Which is freekin awesome btw!) I'm finding that some of the TS's I'm building can be called from PE or the OS. I know I could build two separate TS's or set a variable and have two separate reboot steps, but as another requestor put it in their request..."It would be much more elegant" if this option were builtā€¦

  12. 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€¦

  13. Advise which dependency failed during OSD on the screen as well as the log.

    I work in an environment that does not allow me to enable the command prompt in a boot image. This makes it difficult to check what went wrong. During the dependency check in a PXE advise which dependencies failed on the screen as well as the log. It would be good to state if the NIC and storage drivers are working ok.

  14. Add ALL reg key types as options in Task Sequence conditions

    In the conditions for Task Sequence steps, the only reg key type you can use the 'exists' or 'not exists' options for is REGSZ. I would like to see the others REGMULTISZ, REGEXPANDSZ, REGDWORD, REGQWORD, REGBINARY. Similarly, when you choose 'equals' or any of the other operators, the only options are REGSZ, REGEXPANDSZ, and REGDWORD. The other options should be available there as well.

  15. too many deployments

    For a larger organization that handles 120+ image configurations (same base image but different software installed depending on the task sequence used), we run into problems with the deployment size to 'unknown computers' being too large and ends up breaking imaging to unknown machines.

    We'd like to see this limit either increased or removed, as it's constantly causing us issues.

  16. TS Menu

    I currently have 3 task sequences. I want to combine all three into one task sequence and present the user with a wizard to ask, which SOE they want to install.

    the way around it I have to create a powershell gui script to prompt the user and set the TS variable, then assign that variable to each group in the in task sequence. it gets messy.

    I explorerd HTAs, MDT Wizards but these are difficult to adopt and implement in a timely manner.

  18. 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.

  20. better driver and driver pack updates

    Consider this scenario: you have 2 hardware models (eg. Lenovo X1 Yoga and Lenovo X1 Carbon); you download the SCCM driver pack for both models and import them into SCCM.
    When you import a driver pack you add a category to identify the model that belongs to.
    After you complete the import process for both driver packs you recognize that some drivers are in use by both models.
    So at the end you will have:
    - drivers used by model A only
    - drivers used by model B only
    - drivers used by both model A and B

    The mainā€¦
