  2. Add Win32_DeviceGuard WMI Class

    Request to add the Win32_DeviceGuard WMI Class into Configuration Manager Hardware Inventory by default. This is a crucial WMI class that we can query Virtualization Based Security configurations on systems. Right now we have to manually add the class as described in the following blog:

  3. Fix Active Directory Discovery Attribute <Not Set> Bug

    When an optional AD attribute has been selected for inclusion in AD discovery, if that attribute has a value at time of discovery, it is included in the discovery and reflected as part of the information for the user/computer/group object in CM. If that AD attribute is later cleared (changed to <not set> / NULL value in AD), discovery identifies that the attribute is a NULL value and purposely skips it from the discovery. As such, the user/computer/group object in AD falls out of sync with the AD attributes and continues to report the value even though it has beenā€¦

  4. Making CTRL+V (Keyboard Paste) work in the "Import Computer Information" dialog

    Making CTRL+V (Keyboard Paste) work in the "Import Computer Information" dialog would allow to quickly paste the MAC or the BIOS UUID, instead of having to accurately place the mouse cursor for a right-click Paste.

  5. Management Insight: Inventories approaching and violating max MIF size

    There's already a UVI for two to increase the default maximum MIF size. Regardless of the size this seems like an easy Management Insight win. Let me know if the existing limit is being violated or if some devices are starting to get close so I can investigate why. Obviously we need to determine which devices are in question.

  6. store client boundary IDs in database

    A client's last reported list of boundaries and boundary groups it was part of should be stored in the database. This will allow for collections and report built around clients within a boundary or boundary group.

  7. Software-Inventory: Click on the Software to see where it is installed

    It would be nice to double-click on a inventoried Software to see on which Clients this Software is installed.

  8. Inventory printers (local and network)

    It would be nice if there would be a report that shows all the current printers "attached" to a user profile (local and network). Without having to reside un custom SQL scripts or custom reports (for us the people that don't know scripting or SQL)

  11. Add missing properties to Win32_QuickFixEngineering

    The WMI Class ROOT\cimv2:Win32_QuickFixEngineering has an Property InstallDate but I do not get any values returned.

    Having the Installed Date available will allow us to sort and see the latest installed patches remotely. This is valuable when assessing problems caused by the latest installed patches.

  12. Create Boundaries based on OU membership.

    We are have lots of groups that are coming into the company using VPN. As an example we canā€™t properly manage locations with many machines all coming into the corporate network via a common VPN and the IP addresses change every time and the network speed is a challenge. We end up flooding their pipe into the VPN so if we could use OU membership as a boundary we could managed the deployments.

  13. Add the ability to add registry keys to the hardware inventory from the console

    Add the ability to extend the hardware inventory to include registry keys simply by browsing and selecting the relevant keys, similar to the current functionality for adding WMI objects through the client settings in the console. This would avoid the need to use 3rd party tools such as regkeytomof and hacking the configuration.mof file.

  14. Capture Cisco CDP and LLDP packets in SCCM reporting for asset tracking

    CDP and LLDP packets are generated by network switches and sent to clients to identify which port they are connected to. If the computer is on an enterprise wifi access point, it will capture which access point it is connected to. This data should be captured by SCCM so inventory reports can be run to get a PC's physical location in the network.

    This data can be captured with Wireshark, but if SCCM could capture these packets it would aid greatly in PC location and network troubleshooting since it tells you which switch and port number the computer is on.

  16. Client Notification ā€“ Option to Collect a Full Hardware/Software Inventory

    For troubleshooting purposes would like and option to run a full hardware/software inventory on a client under client notification. Because there are cases when you are trying to troubleshoot why HW or SW inventory data is not flowing into the SCCM database and the best way to do that is forcing the client to perform a full inventory and look at the logs. Delta inventories sometimes do not pick up changes on the client.

  17. Make configuration.mof changes and restores from backup more robust

    Currently, changes to configuration.mof appear to be read in based on the timestamp of the file.

    This means that if you restore configuration.mof from a backup, it will not be re-read into the database because the timestamp is older.

    Recently I had to force a re-read of a backup of configuration.mof by making a trivial change to a comment in the file so that the timestamp was changed and thus hardware inventory would again run on my clients.

    It would seem that perhaps a checksum of the file compared to a file that was read in previously would resolve thisā€¦

  19. Manage and Disable Business Hours via Client Settings

    Currently you cannot manage business hours within the console using Client Settings. We should be able to set defaults, prevent users from modifying them, and disable them altogether. Our servers do not need business hours and in a highly virtualized environment we can see a global CPU spike at 10 PM when the default Business Hours end.

  20. Ability to utilise Azure Traffic Manager with Cloud Management Gateway & Cloud DPs

    I've dabbled with the deployment of Cloud management gateways, and Cloud DP's and one thing that I observed is that when you create the CMG or CDP you are specifying a region to deploy where you want the resource to be located (east US, West Europe, etc)..
    As someone who manages SCCM endpoints at a global level, trying to deploy resources to handle staff to operate across multiple geographic locations (US, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand) you can imagine that I need a lot of Cloud resources to keep traffic local to the endpoints.
    It would be fantastic if thereā€¦
