  1. Virtual Environments - User and Machine targeted members

    Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems you can't mix a an SCCM/App-V 5 Virtual Environment with Machine and User targeted apps.
    e.g. Adobe Reader DC must be machine targeted and I'm trying to deploy User targeted plugins as they are licensed.
    You can achieve this with App-V 5 Connection Groups.
    BIG BIG failing if this is the case..

    • Tag Devices No Longer in Active Directory

      It would be nice to have a pre-built collection that puts devices found in SCCM that do not have a corresponding object in Active Directory. We could then delete those objects on a cycle or as needed. This will help keep our SCCM inventory more closely resemble Active Directory and keep it clean.

      • Allow the Device Properties dialog box to be resized, by default it is too narrow

        Allow the Device Properties dialog box to be enlarged to allow admins to view the tabs with wide content, such as the Deployments Tab in particular. Also for the Deployments Tab reduce the default width of the "Program" and "Type" fields as they generally waste a lot of column area with blank space.

        • Add exclusions for Software Inventory

          Provide a feature where exclusion paths can be provided for software inventory. Right now, I either need to accept all local hard disks or explicitly define every path that I want (which is unrealistic in a large enterprise).

          I would like software inventory amended so that I can inventory every *.exe in C: with the exception of C:\IamTheSameOnEveryCorporateBuild, C:\Windows, etc.

          • 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)

            • Add InventoryLog to replication

              Add InventoryLog to replication in a hierarchy. This would allow the ability to query the table from the CAS.

              • Client Notification – 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.

                  • Client status icon should be Green for online, yellow for offline, red for dead/inactive and grey for broken/misoconfigured/requires help

                    The current '2 color' method of identifying client status icon in the console should also include yellow and red.
                    Client status icon should be Green for online, yellow for offline (but still active), red for dead (more than 30 days) inactive and grey for broken/misconfigured/requires assistance clients.
                    Also make the icon column as a searchable criteria in the console.

                    • Put beside the device name the related user of the device for Reports, Lists,....

                      Put beside the device name the related user of the device (Primary User) for reports, lists, views, dialogs....

                      For us it is always good to see that relation fast. So an option to add here and there the column for the primary user) will be very heklpful.

                      • max mif size

                        The Max Mif Size should be increased from 5MB to a default of 50 MB. We know that the average size is now more than default of 5 MB. Admin needs to increase it in order to ensure up-to-date inventory within SCCM.

                        • Add the capability to Software Metering to collect and present data only for the device and not the user

                          Many customers want to use Software Metering, but are legally not allowed to, because ConfigMgr always discloses the user's name and his/her usage. To be compliant with European law it should be possible to collect data only related to the machines software is installed on. Of course that would not allow for all metering features/reports to work, but at least could many companies start using the feature in general and act on that data.

                            • Change hard coded limit for HW inventory mif files.

                              There is a hard limit of 50 MBs for Hardware inventory set within the data loader for MIF file. If you enabled AI classes to collect more data by SCCM, it is not unusual for these computers to hit this hard-coded limit. This causes an endless loop of resyncs being performed by SCCM clients. the resync then consumes network bandwidth and processing time on the client/MP/etc. It is not until it hit the Data loader that these MIF files are rejected and ultimately a resync occurs to start the whole process over. The hard code limes should be increased to…

                              • 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.

                                • Develop a report for devices within a collection that DO NOT have specific software installed

                                  It would be very useful to have a built in report that shows devices with details and primary user information for computers in a collection that do NOT have specific software installed. Currently we need to make a collection of target devices (based on OU for example) with software x installed, then another collection of those same target device, and add an exclude collection rule pointing to the first collection... it's difficult to explain that to basic operators and would be nice to have a built in report that does that for us.
