  1. Content Version Rollback - Rollback Package Contents to Previous Version

    From time to time, we need to rollback Content to a previous version. This is all done manually, and actually bumps the Content Version and forces us to redistribute the content to both DPs & Clients. When we have to do this with large packages (Upgrade Media), it causes a lot of extra network traffic.

    I'd like the ability to Rollback from version N to N-1, literally have the content version go from 6 to 5.

    Challenges: This would mean you'd have to keep N-1 of the Content on the DPs (Dedup would make this almost a non-issue)

    Pros: Currentlyā€¦

  2. Checkbox on deployment whether to allow download over CMG

    Create a checkbox on the content locations tab of a deployment that dictates whether or not clients should use the cmg ti download content.

  3. AI-supported, predictive content locations (Super Peers, DPs, Cloud DPs)

    Planning your content distribution in ConfigMgr is usually a one-time thing but over time - especially in large environments - optimization of said distribution infrastructure tends to become a "when we have time for it" job while the network topology can change drastically; sometimes without ConfigMgr admins knowing about it. Proper boundaries, branchcache, delivery optimization, pull-DPs etc. already provide great tools for us to optimize this but some questions remain and are currently not answered within ConfigMgr itself:
    - which clients could become viable peer cache clients?
    - which DPs should act as pull-DPs and from which DP should theyā€¦

  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.

    Undo "Clear Required PXE Deployment"

    In the Security Roles
    Allow/ Disallow: Clear PXE Flag for Clients
    Allow/ Disallow (Hide): Clear PXE Flag for the entire Collection

  6. Much more robust content distribution

    Most of my time in CM is cleaning up content distribution. Packages in WMI but not in Content Library, in Content Library but not in WMI, content failed validation, etc. We need a much more robust content distribution process. If the package list is not correct, auto repair. If content is in the content library but not vaild, remove it. If content distribution fails, retry it AFTER the previous has been cleaned up. Having to run PS commands to remove orphaned packages from WMI, and then run SQL queries to find packages ID's for Applications (which should be a columnā€¦

  7. Add an option to update only Install or Uninstall content of a deployment type

    It is great that you can now provide a separate Install/uninstall content location for a deployment type of an application. This is very useful for large applications.

    However, there is one major limitation: You cannot update just uninstall (or install) content. If you have updated your uninstall script, the current Update content task will try to update both install/uninstall content.

    Even though you haven't changed anything in your install content, it will takes ages for large applications, before SCCM understands that install content has not been modified.

    It would be so much faster if you could just initiate "Update uninstall"ā€¦

  8. Move inboxes

    inboxes\despoolr.box\receive
    Get full depending on the size of the deployments.

    Being able to move this to another drive so that the isntallation drive doesn't get filled up.

  9. Content validation

    At SCCM you can validate Content only for one Device or you have manny work to validate Content at all Devices. With waork around right click tools you can validate content for all Devices. Implementing the right click solution and it will a better work with Content

  10. Display Content Status on Content Tab of Distribution Point Properties

    On the Content tab in a Distribution Point's properties add a column to display the current content status (Success, In Progress, Failed). This would make it easy to see what content has not yet made it to a DP while on the screen where it would also be easy to Redistribute the content.

  11. AD Forest Discovery: More information for subnets

    When doing an AD Forest Sync with subnet import enabled. Could SCCM also import the subnet location and description attributes so when looking at boundaries in the console we have more detailed information?

  12. Content Status Node - have "Pending" column as a default column?

    Be nice to see the Pending column as a default column instead of adding it each time.

  13. Shorten Pull-DP retry interval

    Reduce the amount of time between when content distribution is completed on a Standard DP and when its Pull DP begins to transfer. Consider using some type of notification to the Pull DP that it may begin instead of having it just wait when it could be pulling.

  14. update distribution point on a schedule

    when we want to schedule an update for a package, if you enter a previous date than the current one (due to an error) you don't receive an advertisement message telling you that date is anterior. If you click OK, then package is update immediately!

  15. Active Driectory: LAPS and BitLocker

    It would be nice if SCCM could pull the LAPS passwords into a table. And while we are at it the BitLocker recovery key. These are the 2 most important things to have if an AD computer account were to get deleted for some reason. We could then limit access to the data and write reports for it. I'm assuming that the information would get updated as part of some AD info sync process. The data would need to be non-volatile in case the AD account is deleted at least the information would be in the SCCM database. Maybe alsoā€¦

  18. Bind MP & DP to boundary

    Make it optional wether a client should use normal logic to identify MP and DP or hardcode which site system(s) to use.

    Boundary A : normal behavior
    Boundary B : MP = Server1 DP=Server3

  20. Automate Contentcleanup for Distributionpoints

    Some sort of task or possibility to be able to automate the Cleanup-utility(ContentLibraryCleanup.exe) would be greatly appreciated. One of my costumers has nearly 200 DP's and the majority of those had invalid content that stretched to 200GB. Now we've been able to manually run the command towards every single DP and removed alot of invalid content. It would be nice to have some builtin possibility of this in SCCM instead of creating scheduled tasks or similar to solve this issue.
