  1. Configure Active Directory Discovery Containers

    I would like to see some changes in the way containers are processed during discovery.

    1) I would like the ability to change the order and/or prioritize which containers are searched first. We have multiple forests, and it would be good to be able to set some to run before others.

    2) I would like to be able to establish multiple schedules for AD Discovery so that some containers can be run more frequently than others.

    3) I would like to be able to right click on a container and manually run discovery on that container only.
    4) Allow theā€¦

  2. Allow clients to update their own IP address into SCCM

    With many of our users working flexibly via VPN, hopping between sites etc. They may end up connecting back to our network multiple times per day and end up changing IP address frequently.

    DNS doesn't always update as quickly as we would like and therefore often when we try to perform client actions, DNS does not reflect the current IP address and client actions then fail.

    Could there be an option to allow a client to directly update SCCM with the client IP address to avoid delays in DNS catching up with current IP address?

  3. Allow adding read and execute access to the SCCM client install folder.

    Currently, a second shared folder has to be created and the client installer has to be copied to this folder. Everytime an update is performed to SCCM, the client has to be re-copied as well. Granting read and execute permissions are wiped out. Manual installation of the client is needed periodically for troubleshooting purposes and the extra steps to set it up are not helpful.

  5. Exclude Virtual Cluster from System Discovery

    This request ( https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8414520-exclude-virtual-cluster-and-ou-from-discovery ) was not fully completed, but it was marked as complete. People have been commenting that it is NOT done.

    We appreciate the addition of OU exclusion, but Virtual Cluster exclusion is also a big part of what we need!

    I believe most of us don't want to have to pile up our cluster objects into a junk OU just to exclude them. My AD is organized such that it makes far more sense to see these objects sitting with the real computer objects.

    Please review the request for Virtual Cluster exclusion as a separate requestā€¦

  6. an improvement on clients

    it would be nice if MS could spend some time in improving the clients:

    • making them respond faster (receiving policies, deployments, and gather's information)
    • not to break all the time (it feels most of the time is spent troubleshooting clients issues)

  7. If possible... it would be nice if you could push a Packages and/or Applications to a Device rather creating a Device collection

    If possible.... It would be nice to be able to push an Application and/or Package to a device rather than creating device collections. If this is possible I would love to know how to do this?

  8. Merge two resources with the same MAC Address

    If I import a new computer using its MAC Address but later I install manually the client in the actual computer, two resources with the same name end up in the SCCM Database.
    An option to make the default action merging both resources or just associating the client DDR to the manual import.

  9. Prevent people from creating programs/deployments from the build-in Configuration Manager Client (xxx00003) package

    When you do an upgrade from CM12 SPx , prevent people to have programs/deployments from the build-in Configuration Manager Client (xxx00003) package . When you do not look / validate closely - your clients all get updated in no-time when your 1511 site servers go's online - even when you disable site-wide upgrade .

  11. Add MAC addresses to Heartbeat Discovery data

    We find ourselves trying to go from MAC address to device in the console fairly regularly, especially when troubleshooting things like PXE from the logs (which only shows MAC address) and needing to kill off failed OSD records (which may be named "Unknown" or have a random computer name in ConfigMgr, but you're now in WinPE ready to kick off the TS again).

    If the MAC Address information was pulled with Heartbeat discovery, it could easily be used to filter the device list and find the resource .As the information rarely changes, it seems like it would be very lowā€¦

  12. Include updated Windows Update Agent during client install

    There are well documented issues with issues when using older versions of the Windows Update Agent. The configmgr client install still just checks for the base level of the Windows Update client. The client install should include the most up to date windows update agent so that customers will not be required to deploying the updated agent after client install to resolve known scan and related issues.

  13. Update SCCM Client install to download and install the latest WUAgent

    Why does the SCCM client still download the 7.6.7600.256 for Windows 7 when the latest version is 7.6.7601.23453?

    Would be good when the sccm installs or upgrades that it attempts to install the latest version.

  15. Pin Configuration Manager client properties box to taskbar

    It would be really nice to be able to pin the properties box to the taskbar to get to it quicker. As it is now in the taskbar, I can only right click and close the window.
