  1. content repliction

    Dear sccm Team,

    we have a lot of middle sized Locations with max. 2 Mbps Connections that hold distribution points and we often have issues replicating. It would be great to leverage something like DFSR (with cross file remote differential compression). Also it would be great if we finally could copy single files between DPs when there were issues during DP update for a package. Wouldn't that be possible with a small command that verifies checksum and updates the CM database Information.

    Thx
    Sebastian

  4. Add bandwidth controls for content library between Primary and Secondary Sites

    It would be good to have bandwidth controls on the packages being transferred from the primary to secondary site content library similar to transferring to DPs.

  5. Change how reboot settings are configured

    Reboot configurations are set per-client. I would like the ability to do this per-deployment. It can currently be done through creative collections, but it's time-consuming to maintain. Just adding a couple of fields to the deployment table for reboot override behavior ought to do it.

  6. Allow distribution points to be installed on server core

    To reduce the attack fingerprint of servers it would be good if you could deploy a distribution point on server core.

  7. 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.

  9. Cascading distributions

    Set up distributions of content that hit one DP Group, then another automatically and so on.

  10. Provide the ability to set the number of PullDP that can download at the same time.

    By providing this settings, it would ease up massive distribution of a package to many PullDP.
    A setting similar to Concurent download on DP would be perfect!

    As of now, updating a package hosted on 1000 PullDP will trigger all PullDP at the same time to update the package.
    This cause high CPU and IO on the server as well as potential network load.

  11. Allow a "Redistribute" action directly from the Distribution Point Configuration Status workspace

    When monitoring a DP that has multiple package failures, you have to go to the DP>Content Tab and search for the failed packages individually, or go to the package and Right click>Redistribute on each DP. When you see 10 failed packages when looking at the DP at \Monitoring\Overview\Distribution Status\Distribution Point Configuration Status, a "Redistribute" action right there in the message view would be awesome!!

  12. 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.
