  1. MVP - DCR wanted for server groups

    My customer has +_ 600 maintenance windows using the server grouping feature .

    Feature Request Nr1 : They use the node drain / node resume feature with PowerShell. They are still modifying and changing the script almost every week . That script is used for those 600 collections :

    a) a central repository/place to enter the script details and be able to reuse that for each server group collection like for power management custom templates .
    b) If they make a change in the ā€œcentralā€ PowerShell repository , it keeps history ( Like application revisions ) and replaces that automaticallyā€¦

  2. Allow Wildcard for cmdlets Get-CMPackage and Remove-CMPackage

    This would make it easier to remove multiple packages with similar names.

  4. Allow use if DeploymentID as identifier in Set-CMPackageDeployment and Set-CMSoftwareUpdateDeployment

    Set-CMPackageDeployment and Set-CMSoftwareUpdateDeployment do not allow DeploymentID as unique identifier. Instead you need to use e.g. programname and packageid.

    In the case of Set-CMSoftwareUpdateDeployment this requires DeploymentName which is not even possible to retrieve from Get-CMDeployment

    Please, allow DeploymentID as an option to identifying the deployment in these cmdlets.

  5. Create a PowerShell cmdlet too add/edit/remove duplicate hardware identifiers

    New-CMDuplicateHardwareIdentifier
    Set-CMDuplicateHardwareIdentifier
    Remove-CMDuplicateHardwareIdentifier

    Please create cmdlets to add/edit/remove duplicate hardware identifiers. We have a large organization and those pesky Lenovo Yoga's get a USB to Ethernet dongle with each one. We have over 500 dongles currently, and I don't see a way to automate importing those MAC addresses. Thanks!

  6. SCCM module cmdlet creation for folders

    The ConfigurationManager module does not have any *-folder cmdlets.

    I would like to see some created that allow for more folder manipulation within system centre configuration manager, for example Get-CMFolder -Name "Test" would provide me with the Folder ID, Name, Heirarchical Location in ConfigMgr and more!

    As well as New-CMFolder, Move-CMFolder, Remove-CMFolder, etc!

    I would also like to see the ability to add -Folder to other cmdlets, such as New-CMDeviceCollection -Name "Test" -Folder "TestFolder" so the collection called Test is made in the folder called TestFolder instead of the Device Collections root.

  9. PowerShell cmdlet "Remove-CMMaintenanceWindow" should accept Window Time as parameter

    Powershell cmdlet "Remove-CMMaintenanceWindow" should accept StartTime as a parater. Current implementation only accepts limited parmaters of collectionid, and maintenance window name. If you have two windows by the same name, with different start times... you will remove both by using this utility. I suggest it should also accept the StartTime as a paramter for specific window deletion. Maintenance windows are a point in time schedule, and therefore the Point in time should be considered as a parameter for removal. The current implementation of this cmdlet is dangerous, and cannot be used for finite window removal.

  11. The cmdlet move-cmobject FolderPath does not reflect name of Applications node

    The folder names are different in the console and the cmdlet Move-CMObject.
    Console: Applications
    Cmdlet: Application
    Since this is a standard folder regardless of site code, the names should be the same.

  12. Update CM cmdlet documentation and downloadable help file

    Running update-help pulls down a help file to an older version of the cmdlets. For instance, do a clean install of the console and cmdlets.
    Type:

    Get-Help Add-CMApplicationCatalogWebsitePoint

    On a machine that has not had the help file updated, you will see 6 parameter sets under Syntax. Run update-help and then try again. You will now see 2 parameter sets under Syntax. In addition, there is no detailed information for the new cmdlets added.

  13. Transaction support for PowerShell cmdlets

    today when using powershell cmdlet the action is performed direct against the server, as example, if you want to create an application, add couple of deployment types and perform other small changes, you end up with lots of revisions (easily, 10). when you have lots of revisions, this start to impact the performance.

    it would be nice if we can have the cmdlets transactional, in this case, you create the object and the changes does not apply to the database, you need to "save" the change.

    on the application example, you could create the application, create the dt's, changes, etc.ā€¦

  14. Save-CMSoftwareUpdate has no option to select the download source

    The Admin-Console is capable to download Softwareupdates from WSUS or a Networkshare wsuscontent). But there ist no commandlet for that. Save-CMSoftwareUpdate seems to be the commandlet for that. If so, than the parameters for the source are missing.

  15. Provide a Powershell PackageManagement Repository and perhaps management thereof

    PowerShell PackageManagement is a unified interface to package management systems and aims to make Software Discovery, Installation and Inventory (SDII) work via a common set of cmdlets (and eventually a set of APIs). Regardless of the installation technology underneath, users can use these common cmdlets to install/uninstall packages, add/remove/query package repositories, and query a system for the software installed.

    Providing a dashboard/portal with the ability to manage the NuGet repository underlying the packagemanagement solution would make SCCM more attractive over phasing it out to go towards Chocolatey Enterprise.

  16. add a powershell possibility to add requirements to a deploymenttype of an application

    At the moment it is not easy to add requirements to an application deploymenttype with PowerShell. I think many of us would benefit if this would be simplified.
