  2. Client deployment flexibility

    Please add a feature to be able to auto install the agent by device type. ie, servers, workstations, thin clients. Currently this is an all or nothing type thing, it would be nice to make it more granular.

  3. Pending restart not detected with ccm client upgrade

    When the CM client is upgraded on machines, sometimes there is a code 7 at the end of the install which means 'reboot needed' but in the console the pending restart is still on 'No'.
    Isn't it possible to reflect this reboot needed in the console 'pending restart' variable ?

  5. Deploy Application/Task Sequence directly from collection properties window

    I always find myself inside the collection properties window wanting to deploy an application or sequence. I then need to first make the necessary changes and memberships then go out and deploy.

    It will be much easier to be able to deploy within the window whilst adding memberships.

  6. Offline Deployments

    I would like to suggest an option for "Offline Deployment" to allow customers with low/limited bandwidth to perform self installs while offline.
    We have several low bandwith users (around 800) that basically live out of Hotels and secure locations. Deploying large packages/apps/Task sequences are always an issue because said deployments become available in Software Center, and yet the content has not arrived yet.
    Due to the nature of their work, we need to give them the ability to deploy apps/packages/task sequences on their schedule. Once a package is made available, it shows up in Software Center yet the bits areā€¦

  7. honnor / discard work hours for client upgrade

    Please provide an option to honor or disregard the (maintenance windows) working hours set locally. In some scenarios client does not update to the latest CU level when client only operates in the work hours and is shut down.

  8. UWF and WCD integration would be an amazing addition for the educational space

    Unified Write Filter and Windows Configuration Designer profiles are both great tools, especially for customers in the education space. We often need to deploy many devices in a "Shared PC" configuration for classrooms, computer labs, etc. It would be amazing if these tools were integrated into SCCM to make deploying and managing them simpler.

  10. Change Client Cache to work like DP SCCMContentLib folder

    Some deployed Applications and/or Packages during their execution modify their working directory (a log file created, new files created/deleted, etc...)
    When that happens, the Peer Cache feature fails because when other devices get a copy they immediately discard it since the copy is distinct from the one defined at the SCCM server. The error message "The hash value is not correct" is registered by the devices that downloaded the modified copy.

    I think the SCCM Client Cache should work like the "SCCMContentLib" folder existing at the Distribution Points, creating a hashed, compressed file for every package file.

  11. Exclude workgroup computers from Automatic Client Upgrade

    When using ACU computers in workgroups cannot upgrade because they are not able to query Active Directory when "ccmsetup /upgrade" is executed. We have seen some scenarios where the installed client on workgroup machines crashed after each failing installation trial. It would be great if an option was implemented to either exclude workgroup computers or provide a list of domains that should be considered during ACU.

  13. Stop wrapping the Mac SCCM client into an MSI file

    It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to wrap the Mac SCCM client in an MSI file. All the MSI file contains is a single DMG file which then has to be copied to the Mac.

    Having to install the MSI file on a Windows machine to get a DMG which has to be copied to the Mac afterwards is annoying, please just make the DMG file available for direct download.

    Thanks

  14. Move Client to new Active Directory Organizational Unit during reinstallation

    While migrating our existing clients to windows 10 with a reinstall TS we need to move the Clients to another OU.
    It will be very good for us to get this realised with during the TS with a special function. "Join Domain" will not work to move the existing client to another OU.

  15. Create custom TS Variables with values depending on return code

    While running a task sequence I would like to see the option to create a custom Task Sequence Variable and it's value depending on a return code from a running step (cmdline, PowerShell script, Application, Package). This variable can be used later on in the TS to run or skip specific steps.
    Think about additional reboot steps if a BIOS flash is performed (if no flash is performed you don't want a reboot). Currently I need to create and run a powershell script to make this happen.

  16. Automatic Client Upgrade: Allow option to ignore maintenance windows

    It is great that client upgrades now respect maintenance windows per the "Automatic Client upgrades - respect defined maintenance windows" feedback. However, we now are dealing with the opposite issue.

    We have very narrow maintenance windows defined for our servers and as such 75% of our clients were out of date 2 months post upgrade. It would be great for a toggle on the upgrade configuration so we can choose the behavior for the upgrade to respect the windows or not, similar to a normal application deployment. This way we would not need to manually push the client upgrade outā€¦

  17. Terms "pre-production" and "production" might not be best in context of automatic client upgrades

    Although we use term "piloting" in the package name, and there are references to term "staging" internally (database) as well, for UI/settings we are using term "pre-production". Althoug same "instance" of SCCM implementation/hierarchy can be used to manage multiple environments (development, QA, pre-production, production etc.) using term "pre-production" within the same instance of SCCM implementation/hierarchy can be confusing since it's technically still the same SCCM environment (whereas "pre-production" implies a different environement). This is especially confusing for customers who have separate/isolated SCCM instances/hierarchies managing their pre-production environments (DEV, QA, etc.).

    Therefore, the suggestion is to replace use of term "pre-production"ā€¦

  18. client issues in 1610

    We are facing issues with the new client in 1610. mainly it is very slow to load and returns errors at time. The service does not respond to restart calls. Finally, Sorting by status for installations does not work as expected.

  20. "Maintenance Windows" for Client Auto Upgrade feature

    We often found that SCCM Client is not working because SCCM client was corrupt during client.msi installation was failed due to external OS shutdown. OS shutdown during upgrade may cause corrupt SCCM client but we cannot set "Maintenance Windows" for Client Auto Upgrade in current SCCM version and so it is difficult to avoid this situation. We want to add "Maintenance Windows" for Client Auto Upgrade.
