  1. Point and Deploy to Single Machine or small group of machines/users.

    Remove the extra steps to create a collection of one or more existing machines to deploy a program or application or task sequence to.

    When needing to do a small targeted and IMMEDIATE deployment the admin should be able to right click and pick what to deploy and when he hits ok an adhoc collection should automatically be created into a default folder, say call it "Adhoc Collections" which without any keystrokes, mouse clicks or mouse swipes would be created in that folder with a name starting with the date in format YearMonthDay-Hour:Minute:Second-(Package | App Name | Task sequence|)-CreatorName

  4. Fix the issue that automatically adds UTC time in the console in local time when scheduling a deployment...

    Not sure why but after this last update, whenever I deploy software SCCM automatically adds 5 hours to the local time which is the time difference from Chicago time to UTC...

  5. 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.

  6. Content Library Cleanup Tool - improve error handling

    While using the Cleanup tool I've encountered a few occasions where it crashes out with file access errors. It crashes to the command prompt and all previous activity is lost as it doesn't get logged. Is it possible to improve the error handling of the tool that it logs access errors instead of throwing an exception? I've included a sample of the exception error message below.

    System.IO.IOException: Access to the path '\mydistpoint.com.au\SCCMContentLib$\DataLib\Content_27822e98-f79a-436a-af07-fa88beac76c5.1\Templates' is denied.

  7. 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.

  8. Fix SCCM Content Validation to be able to validate even when the Content Location Folder is empty

    Fix SCCM Content Validation to be able to validate even when the Content Location Folder is empty.

    If you send content to a DP and it has a content location but the folder has nothing in it, you will be able to send the content to the DP just fine but the Content Validation will fail when it runs.

  9. Use the content library also for client cache

    Please bring the Content Library to the Client Cache. That would be nice to have in some cases only a sync Methode instead of downloading over BITS a kompressed file.

  10. Calendar integration for file replication schedule

    add possibliy to import or set calendar. This would allow to take care about public holidays concerning file replication schedules. On limited file replication settings this would allow a faster replication during off-hours of remote locations e.g in other countries with different calendar.

  11. Option to right click on a computer or collection and rerun an advertisement.

    Option to right click on a computer or collection and rerun an advertisement.

    This will help us a lot because when doing mass deployments many times we have deployments failing on few computers.
    If we have this option we can either right click on individual computers and rerun advertisement or create a new collection of failed computers and rerun advertisement on collection.

  12. 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.

  13. Allow DP Distribution Throttling Based on Day

    Currently you can configure Content Distribution Rate Limits to throttle based on the hour of the day. It would be nice to be able to make this different depending on the day of the week. For instance, I'm provisioning some new DPs, and I want the floodgates of content throttled M-F, but I don't care if it opens wide on the weekends when almost nobody is working anyway.

    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...

  15. TRusted Source locations - Complete the Trusted Source story

    I would like to see Trusted Source locations to be added to ConfigMgr as a Node in Administration, and permission so that only Full Administrator or a specific RBA Role can manage these locations.

    All ConfigMgr wizards that allow path data-entry will be changed to become a drop down list of approved Trusted Source locations. The User will be able to navigate into the folder structure of the Trusted Source location, creating new directories with a restriction on placing content on the root of the Trusted Source location, since this can induce data-loss if the sub-folder is not specified inā€¦

  17. ContentLibraryCleanup Distribution Point Maintenance Mode

    I love the ContentLibraryCleanup tool, but in the small environment I'm working with about 10 remote DPs, the tool takes a really long time to run. On 2 of our DPs, it took 2 days each to run. Because it took so long, they both failed because at the end the tool reported that a particular package wasn't fully replicated yet.

    We'd like a way to do the following:


    1. Put a DP in Maintenance Mode. This would let Content currently being deployed to the DP to complete (basically coming to a soft stop), but would stop new content from startingā€¦

  18. Source DP prioritization during refresh content/MS package update over other DPs

    During content refresh or MS SUP cleanup content update requests get sent to all pull/DPs. However, Source DPs do not have the content present and therefore the child DPs cause extra messaging stating content not present in DPs. request that Source DPs get priority when updating content prior to request being sent out to DP to download/update content

  19. Retry mechanism when deleting packages

    When a package is deleted from the console, the packages/apps are removed from the database. If for any reason a pull DP or DP is not available, or WMI has issues on those remotes site systems, the files on the remote SCCM content Lib are not removed. This creates orphaned files on the Content Lib and causes storage issues on the servers.
    We are working with a customer that as a large number of PullDP's so we would like to suggest on the behalf of our customer, to have a retry mechanism in the console to delete the content fromā€¦

  20. 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
