  1. Content Cleanup Tool Errors out on Nested Task Sequences

    Allow the Content Cleanup Tool to ignore issues such as Nested Task Sequences. Currently it is a known issue that Nest Task Sequences cause this error "This content library cannot be cleaned up right now because package *** is not fully installedā€"

  2. Clients to find closer MP, SUP, DP by network / ping latency (No Boundary Mgmt)

    Current methods of ADSite, IPSUbnet, IP Ranges are for larger enterprise pose hectic admin hours and pose for slippages, impacting software, patch deployment compliance. Would it be a good idea to tell SCCM client to locate its MP, SUP, DP etc servers by ping / network latency checks so it find a closer one...this saves us with no boundary management at all... some ifs, buts which can be addressed but overal lgains overweigh them

  3. Ability to set DP Reserved Disk Space from the GUI

    There is no option currently to set a DPs reserved disk space except with and SQL query and reg change. It would be good to be able to do this via a GUI option.

  4. Fix out of sync content on the Distribution Point

    At times, the distribution point will complain that there is a mismatch between the package list on the file system and the package list in WMI.

    The warning presented is as:

    Failed to retrieve the package list on the distribution point.
    Or the package list in the content library doesn't match the one in WMI. Review smsdpmon.log for more information about this failure.

    See attached error dialog.

    The fix is to manually force the WMI list to match the content lib list.

    I'm unsure what causes them to become mismatched, but it would be nice if MS could either fixā€¦

  5. More information about drivers in both console and database,especially unused drivers, usage count and last usage date

    There is no usage information about drivers both in console and database. In smsts.log file, we can track which drivers are downloaded and installed (with management point links and file infos). But, there is no information about usage ratio of the drivers. So, there are many unused drivers in out database and growing day by day.

    There should be a table in database which shows the usage info, installed date,last installed date and copatibility about computer models.
    Also, in console, in driver tab, there should be a column which shows the usage count and last usage date.

  6. Give an opportunity to view status of several deployments

    For example, We have 200+ deployments in \Monitoring\Overview\Deployments node.

    I want to see detailed status of several deployment.Nowadays, the sequence is:
    1. Searching a deployment. right click - view status. Deployment status is opened.
    2. left click on Deployments node.
    3. Searching a deployment. right click - view status. Deployment status is opened.
    4. left click on Deployments node.
    5. Searching a deployment. right click - view status. Deployment status is opened.

    And so on.

    It would be better to select several deployment and get this

  7. Cloud DP Preference

    Allow administrators to set preference in environments with multiple Cloud DPs based on Client Settings as opposed to being non-deterministic. This would increase Cloud DP adoption in distributed environments and allow for additional Cloud DP instances in multiple Azure regions.

  8. Show pending installation (deployments for apps and programs, software updates) in ConfigMgr applet

    To the admin and user it's not transparent if the ConfigMgr agent has work to do, like pending application installations, software updates and so on. I have many customers asking for an easy overview of "is there something missing/pending" on the client. The don't want to browse through log files, or create there own scripts/WMI queries, reports and so on. Of course they already did, but every new customer is missing this information. It's quite easy to query, all information is in WMI and visible through some additional tools, but it would be very neat to have this out-of-the-box.

  9. Can't run ContentLibraryCleanup.exe on DPs in other domains

    The ContentLibraryCleanup.exe will only execute in the domain that the primary site is in. I have a flat SCCM structure with only a primary site server and multiple distribution points. The DPs that are in the same domain as the primary work fine. If the DP is in an untrusted domains, the ContentLibraryCleanup.exe failes to run and returns and access denied message.

  10. Office 365 Client Management

    It's a good feature in SCCM 1710 to view the Office 365 client management as a graphical representation in the Dashboard.

    More beneficial if we render (or take reports) the machine details from that graphical representation. So that we can focus on that hosts by deploying or troubleshoot why the Office versions are not updated.

  11. Removing entries from Peer Cache

    As per the discussion here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/hierarchy/client-peer-cache
    When deleting a client from ConfigMgr the associated peer cache entries are not removed. It is my opinion that they should be...

    I would like to see a configurable method such that content that hasn't been recently verified as available in a client's peer cache is not returned as an available location. ie. Remove the peer cache referrals for content that has not been verfied as available within the past week etc...

  12. Allow exclusions in ConfigMgr content folders

    When selecting a content location it would be nice to be able to add a list of folders (and possibly files) to exclude from the content. e.g. we often include an installation wrapper script in the content that drives the installation or removal process for applications / packages it would be nice to include them in a small git repository in situ. While we can do this now ConfigMgr copies the repo as part of the content. It would be nice to be able to exclude it from content replication / delivery / caching.

  13. Client cache size - define what remains untouched, reserved for OS

    Defining a fixed cache size always leads to a configuration, that fits first in the beginning, but later not.

    It would be nice to define X% of the hard drive, should remain free, reserved for OS (...etc...). Similar to the configuration and approach by the distribution points.

  14. Show installation progress on the Windows Lock Screen

    It would be incredibly useful to show progress on the lock screen for in-place OS Upgrade Task sequences. After the OS upgrade is complete, we have several additional task sequence steps that need to run before a user should log on. A visible progress bar and/or completion notice would help out a lot.

  15. Distribution points in Hierarchy view

    Make it so that distribution points are visible in the Hierarchy View and not only primary/secondary sites. An while we are at it have a view to see the package distribution status on each distribution point, example if there are 100 packages and 60 are distributed, 30 in progress an 10 failed then we would see the proper pie chart. and clicking on the section of the pie chart would give us the view of that section. Would be great for updates as well, being able to see which computers need which updates

  17. Auto discover/identify missing subnets/boundaries

    Given that ConfigMgr collects IPs/Subnets during inventory, it would be very helpfully if there was an automated way of identifying/discovering when clients are on a subnets that aren't configured within a boundary.

  18. 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.

  20. STOP accidental deployment or content transfer

    The bigger question is Can SCCM Admins undo accidental deployments? Do they have any out of box controls in SCCM to STOP the deployment they initiated by mistakenly?. SCCM is still missing that big RED button to stop all the initiated deployments. SCCM / ConfigMgr doesnā€™t have any mechanism to stop the package replication or traffic over the WAN immediately.
