  1. 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.

  2. Improve peer caching performance during task sequence

    When downloading task sequence policies and resolving package download locations during a peer cache request, only download the content which is actually needed during the PE phase of the task sequence. Currently it downloads peer cache locations for all packages associated with the task sequence, even though it doesn't use it all since it only works in PE. This adds significant time to resolve task sequence policy during this step.

  3. Customer would like the ability to manage Primary sites content with the same options we already have for Distribution Points.

    Customer would like the ability to manager Primary sites content with the same options they have for Distribution Points. Specifically the ability to adjust space options such as the existing DP options for MinFreeSpace and ReservedDiskSpace to manage the content library on the primary site "

  4. Distribution Point - Timezone schedule sync

    At the moment when setting up a schedule for Distribution Points to do their syncing the timezone being used is the one from the primary site server.

    when having DP's over multiple continents this brings some advanced math to get the sync done right :p

    Would there be a possibility to use "Use DP local Time" as with advertisements ?
    Or maybe in the schedule tab on the DP properties have a dropdown list with for example "you are now scheduling in GMT+1" where you can select a list of timezones so it does the calculations for you.

  5. Ability to delete a deployment from the Monitoring node

    It would great to be able to right-click a deployment from Deployments in the Monitoring node ad have the option to delete that deployment. It's a great spot for it since all deployments are listed there.

  7. Include an option in a program deployment to not allow peer cache

    Would be a nice option to exclude certain deployments from allowing clients to use peer cache as a content source.

    This would help for situations where content needs to be downloaded but also immediately cleared from the client cache, thus causing other client downloads to fail until they fall back to a DP, or randomly find a peer that hasn't deleted or modified the content.

  8. Rework the Asset Message Pane

    Especially when I am testing a Task Sequence Deployment, I like to check the status messages that the SCCM Site receives from the clients.
    Much easier to see steps and associated exit codes than waiting for the build to finish and trawling the log file.

    Monitoring>Deployments>(Deployment)>In Progress>(Machine)>More Details> Status

    The only problem with it, is that the actual dialog box that pops up has no window controls, so you have to drag the edges to read the info, and more often than not when you hover over the message so you can read it, it closes after a couple ofā€¦

  9. Make global conditions usable for all types of Deployments (Maintenance Windows, Power Settings, Compliance Baselines,...)

    It's crazy how many different manually-made Collections I have just for targeting a Maintenance Window to match a particular department's needs, then also Power Settings, then their Compliance Baselines, then their Apps. Wouldn't it be better to just push evaluating applicability for all that out to the clients and free up server resources?

  10. Need to enable the option to run "Client Notification" options for devices under Deployment Monitoring Status Node

    Under Deployment Monitoring Status Node especially while checking a deployment status we get to see error category node and double clicking the same would provide us the list of machines under that category. We need to enable the client notifications under this just like we run client notification actions on collections or devices inside a collection.

  11. Favourite Deployments

    It would be useful to be able to set "favourite" deployments, then have a Favourites section where we could quickly check the status of those deployments.
    Or an overview screen which showed the status of all favourite deployments.
    This would be particularly useful to make monitoring windows updates easy

  12. LiveFlow of DP to Network

    Currently there is no centralized way within ConfigMgr to determine if the expected desire of boundaries for content / site assignment works as expected. As boundaries can be configured in multiple ways (subnet, ad, range etc) and also allows to fallback between different servers - it would be good to allow insight into what clients from what networks are connecting to a DP to retrieve content. This would allow if the current design works as expected.

    Information that would be useful for on-prem DP;
    1. Devices (COUNT?) connecting from network (initial octets/subnet-mask)
    2. Connectivity type: local, remote, fallback etc...
    3.ā€¦

    Noted  ·  djam responded

    Totally agree. Having realtime visibility into what boundaries clients are in RIGHT NOW, and thus which DPs (and peer clients) they will use is critical. We’ve been talking about this internally for awhile. There are innovations on our roadmap in this area.

  13. Implement content distribution rings

    Existing: if a given content distributed to 2000 plus pull distribution points they may all start downloading at the same time.

    Ask: implement content distribution rings for large enterprises that they can group their pull distribution points exactly like dp groups. Provide ability to prioritize and set compliance thresholds on these groups

    Example:

    DP group 1: 200 dps compliance: %90
    DP group 2: 200 dps compliance: %80
    DP group 3: 200 dps compliance: %80

    If content is distributed to all 600 dps then config manager will send the notifications to first dp group and stop. It will monitor compliance basedā€¦

  16. Fix problem with Peer Cache only working via HTTPS since CB 1710

    We noticed 2 things making it impossible for us to use Peer Cache:
    In CB 1702, we noticed that clients contacting the Peer Cache Source only attempt this via HTTPS.
    This doesn't make sense, especially because we (and most of the other customers we know) use HTTP for the entire SCCM infrastructure.
    Furthermore, in the client settings the option to switch from HTTPS to HTTP was obviously forgotten - it's missing.

    Is the PG aware of this, and can we expect the issues will be fixed in CB 1802?

  17. Redistributing Failed Content

    In the Content Status node of the Monitoring workspace, add an option to allow all failed content to be redeployed without having to go into each package/application and selecting redeploy. When a site has numerous packages that have failed to deploy, having the option to easily redeploy all of the failed content (or specific packages) at the same time would very useful.

  18. Prioritize the DP to replicate first

    Prioritize the DP to replicate first.
    we manage a large number of DP, some are more critical, we would like these DP to be distributed first
    why not a notion of cost on each PD to ensure that replication is managed more finely.
    Thank you for your support

  19. Fix the bug where SCCM does not "Disconnect users from distribution points"

    We frequently use SCCM to deploy folders and files that don't need constant synchronization with the source.

    We make these files available for manual execution from the shared folder as well as creating programs in that package that we can then push to clients.

    There is a bug that keeps SCCM from disconnecting users from any open files in that folder. When this happens, SCCM starts deleting files in the shared folder but can not close the open file, so it just stops - leaving the folder with only some of its contents. To work around this bug and otherā€¦
