  1. Content Locations management

    Content Locations tab in a package properties allows to Validate, Redistribute and Remove a Distribution point. If you need to add a new Distribution point, it should be done via Distribute Content option of the package.

    It would be great to have option to add new Distribution point on the same Content Locations tab.

  3. Rebooting Content Location server or Distribution Point Server does not resume content transfer

    If a Distribution Point server or server hosting the Content Location is restarted, the content transfer is not resumed to the Distribution Point. The content transfer should resume to the Distribution Point after the restart is complete.

  4. Upload packages to Distribution Point

    Sometimes the admin isn't local to the Primary site. This can make creating and uploading packages a painful process. Allow an admin to upload that shiny new WIM package to a local DP and have the DP be capable of pushing back to the "hub" that is the Primary Site. This will allow much faster uploading from the admin perspective (content available immediately locally even if not for hours at other locations).

    This one may be a pipedream ... but it's one of the last hurdles to never installing another Primary if you're sub 100k devices.

  6. An option to configure a DP such that it only downloads the distributed content from the site when the first client requests for it.

    An option to configure a DP such that it only downloads the distributed content from the site when the first client requests for it. This will help manage DP disk space efficiently as most of the content never gets used at a remote site but we do not know what's really needed in advance. With semi annual channels the content problem is getting worse each day.

    Below is the config manager thread I had opened and an expert asked me to submit a request here.

  7. Ability to move Distribution point from one secondary site server to another secondary site server' has been merged into this idea

    when we need to remove secondary site server or when need to rebuild secondary site server with another site code. A full uninstall and re install required for all Distribution points associated with that secondary site.
    Also when we need to move a DP from one site code to another site code, it requires uninstall / re install….to avoid this it will be helpful to have ability to move DP’s between secondaries.

  9. When updating content, wait to remove old content

    When updating content, don't automatically remove the old content on the DP's until the copy starts. Sometimes what happens is if there is a slow content transfer already taking place. The new content update waits for it to complete before it starts the transfer, so during that time the old content is not available (causing task sequences, packages, and applications that use the content to fail).

  11. content library logging

    Could logging for content library be improved.
    Recently had a situation where the ini, sig files weren't created in the FileLib. Noticed the logs weren't helpful when it came to actions managing the content library on distribution points. This made resolving difficult.
