  1. Task Sequence(Windows 10 1903) progress hidden with screen stuck on screen ā€œJust a momentā€¦ā€

    While Running Task Sequence to deploye custom image for Windows 10 version 1903, task Sequence doesn't show any progress bar in Full OS Mode.

    Task Sequence progress bar works fine until WinPE Phase which includes image applying and download of "Setup Windows and configmgr". Right after the reboot when we are expecting to start Full OS phase starting with SCCM Client installation, there is blue screen shown with message "Just a moment..." till the time all the all the steps of task sequence completes successfully.

    This doesn't bring a good customer experience.

  2. Be able to specify the deployment type when pushing applications

    One of the biggest issues I have with the new applications vs packages is the inability to specify deployment types in task sequences. I usually write 2 or 3 different DT's. One silent, one noisy (For self serve) and one uninstall.

  3. Support the imaging of machines with multiple hard drives/NICS without having to uninstall/disable/remove HD's or NIC's.

    Having to unplug, remove, or disable multiple NIC's/HD's is cumbersome, especially in the server environment, not to mention techs often forget.

    Can you add more details on what the issues you encounter with multiple NICs/HDs, please?

  4. Task Sequence Allow Application Installs by Administrative Categories

    We'd like to see the following functionality added to the Install Application Task Sequence step.

    Install application according to administrative categories.

    We as a point of practice ALWAYS include some kind of Administrative Category in the Applications we package in SCCM it would be nice to have a way to leverage that in something more than just filtering in Configuration Manager searches

    dynamic variable list is kind of nice but we have to set a variable list in EVERY Collection we want to deploy said applications to and if we have to add or remove an application we have toā€¦

  5. Built-in step in a task sequence to Auto login as a domain or workstation user

    We have the need to customize the desktop, deploy some user specific apps, as well as setup and configure Outlook and OneDrive. It would be nice to have the ability to have the system automatically log in as the user, provided we have their credentials, so that custom scripts can continue after the task sequence finishes. This is especially true for new hires as we do have their passwords and we make them change it once we turn over the system to them.

  6. Run Task Sequence with local administrator account context for B&C scenario

    in MDT OSD the task sequence runs with local admin context. that's why B&C are more easy in MDT because we can modify the admin user's shortcuts, pinned items, registry keys, etc... and then capture it with using the <CopyProfile> tag in the unattend.xml and have the settings copied to the default profile.
    It will have a huge impact to be able to do the same in SCCM OSD without custom scripting on the default profile that some of them aren't possible without <CopyProfile>.

  7. Merged AD discovered object and Manual machine entry cannot boot

    When there is Device object created by Group discovery method in SCCM and we create new Manual machine entry object. It can happen (when device was online during Group discovery process), that objects are merged. In that time Group discovery record's ID wins, so device cannot boot from PXE (Resource IDs are excluded - that make sense). To by pass that we have to delete all objects and recreate manual machine entry object again.

    Can Microsoft change the logic, that Manual machine entry Resource ID wins, please?

  8. Run remediation items in task sequence

    The new step which lets you run powershell scripts in a task sequence have an open and a browse button. It would be awsome if a button was added which lets us select a configuration items remediation item (script or registry or w/e).

    This way we can set up the machine the same say we do after it has its client configured but we dont need to add startup scripts or services to fix this before first logon.

  9. Bitlocker Network Unlock with WDS-less PXE

    With Bitlocker Network Unlock, a WDS server can automatically unlock your bitlockered device without requiring the user typing the PIN at boot. (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/information-protection/bitlocker/bitlocker-how-to-enable-network-unlock).
    As we all go forward using the SCCM WDS-less PXE-provider instead of WDS, it would be a good idea, if it supported Bitlocker Network Unlock, too.

  10. Task Sequence - Create "Merged" View including Sub TS as Group

    I'd like in the Right Click Menu on a TS to have a "View" option that includes all of the Referenced Task Sequences populated into the TS as a Group.

    We have so many sub task sequences in our main task sequence that sometimes it is easy to get confused where exactly a step is going to be run in the process. Providing a view that enumerates all of the steps from the sub task sequences and places them into the parent would be helpful. (just view, not edit) Similar to how the client merges all of the policies intoā€¦

  12. Improve Collapsible Task Sequence Groups

    The Task Sequence Editor should not expand collapsed groups when any changes are made. Once a group is collapsed it should remain collapsed until I expand it. It should also remember what groups were collapsed between editing sessions.

    Essentially make it work like the editor in MDT does. The editor in MDT already does this.

  13. Supported Move OU step in task Sequence

    A supported step to reassign a OU in a task sequence instead of having to rely on vbscripts or powershell scripts to perform this function. Seems this could be based off the network settings step easy.

  14. OSD - Domain Recovery

    This was a great feature in MDT. If domain join fails initially, this can be used to launch a GUI informing the user or technician that the domain join failed and instructions on how to remediate this before deployment continues.

  15. Add variable for controlling smsts log files

    Today, sccm will retain two copies of a task sequence log at most, and then truncate them when they reach a certain length.

    It's possible to customize this but you need to bake a file into your boot wim image. This capability should be moved into the task sequence as a new variable.

    Call it smstsnumberoflogs and SMSTSLOGROLLOVELENGTH.

    finally, zti_copylogs should be amended to copy all smsts log files, not just the first two, as it's written today.

  16. Add support to Cloud Distribution Point for dynamically defined content

    Add the support for dynamically defined content in an OSD task sequence to Cloud Distribution point. Today in an on-prem environment you can use OSDDownloadContent.exe to pre-cache or download driver packages, BIOS packages and other items that are machine specific.

    However this functionality is not available on Cloud Gateway/Cloud DP. The sequence will execute but support for Dynamic Variables Task Sequences so we can modify the packageID in sequence and then then trigger the OSDDownloadDownloadPackages command to download that content while the sequence is running is not.

    Back in 2018 Tweeted about this https://twitter.com/PaulEAndrews/status/1030155355236560897.

  17. Administration service URL Task Sequence variable

    With the new great possibilites using the Administration Service it would be great to have a Built In task sequence variable with the URL to the SMS Provider(s) so we can easily call that in our OSD Powershell scripts during OSD

  18. Ability to select drive for _SMSTaskSequence during format task in OSD

    We have seen that SMSTaskSequence is created on a not preferred drive and sometime it have failed to complete as when the OSD reboots into the deployed OS the SMSTaskSequence is on a drive that is not mounted anymore.
    It would be good to see an option during the format drive task to set where the folder should be placed so it can be forced to for example C: drive.

  19. Feature check Package Hash mismatch errors with packages referenced to Task Sequence on Distribution points.

    Feature check Package Hash mismatch errors with packages referenced to Task Sequence on Distribution points.

    I hope there might be lots of package hash mismatch errors with packages when we do OSD deployments and applications deployments.

    As every one is migrating/updating current SCCM to new Current branch.

    a feature can be added to check the hash values are correct on distribution points to correc the issues to avoid delays in providing the support to for deployments.

    This feature can be help full to check the single package status on slected DP or multiple.

  20. Allow entering XML data within task sequence apply OS step

    Allow you to be able to paste in an unattend.xml file directly into the Apply Operating System Image task sequence step instead of having to use a package. Similar to how you can add a PowerShell script directly in to the task sequence step in SCCM 1902.
