  1. Way to view site reset progress and readiness

    Site reset can be performed using setup. Progress is shown in the configmgrsetup.log.
    Also site reset "occurs" after active/passive failover. However if invoked in this way there is no easy way of knowing when the process has completed and the site is ready for service.

  2. Update the console installer version properties for hotfixes & TP

    Currently the version properties on the Console's install files aren't reliably the same as the version of the console that they will actually install, making them always up-to-date would make packaging the console as an application much simpler.

    For example- AdminConsole.msi's version is the same as the initial console version for a release and isn't updated when hotfixes are applied, eg 2002 with and without KB4560496 list the same version, but install different console versions.
    The same thing also happens on TPs, eg both 2007 and 2008's ProductVersions are 5.2010.1031.1000 but the TP2008 console is 5.2010.1043.1000.

    ConsoleSetup.exe's version does seemā€¦

  3. Option to put SCOM Agent into maintenance mode when DP is put into maintenance from ConfigMgr

    It would be nice to have a checkbox like we have for deployments to pause SCOM agent on DPs when setting them to maintenance mode.

    Technically, all DP configurations are done by DistMgr, so it should be possible to update it with re-used code from the client functionality.

  4. Maintenance Mode Duration

    Can we please get the same options that exist in SCOM? It would be very helpful if we could set the duration for maintenance mode. See Attached.

  5. Reduce the number delta mismatch BADMIFS Generated

    We get about 1000 deltamismatch BADMIFs generated each day.

    Here is the case of sccm client Inventoryagent.log says successfully sent but the ccmessaging.log shows the upload failed.
    Why canā€™t the client inventory agent act on the status back from ccmmessaginglog and if the upload of the inventory fails, donā€™t increment the delta number.
    This would greatly reduce the number of deltamismatch files generated each day and improvement keeping the inventory up to date without having to force a full inventory sync for this case.

    Here are the details:

  6. Migration Wizard filter by security scope

    The migration wizard needs several improvements:
    Allow for filtering by source hierarchy security scope - We use security scopes for all RBA settings, but when importing objects I have to assign the same scope to all objects which is impractical when importing thousands of objects. There is no practical way to only select items with the same scope from within the wizard either as scope isn't displayed.

    Other improvements:
    Allow for resize of the wizard
    Allow for filtering of objects
    Allow for multi-select of objects in the available objects pane (shift-select)

  7. Use IIS for RestfulAPI Admin Service

    Use an IIS web application to handle the Admin service queries and calls instead of using the SCCMProviderGraph.exe. This would allow better control of the Admin service and make it more consistent with the other CM services. This would also allow the admin service to handle more queries and allow it to be a webservice that can be used by endpoints for querying live data from CM. Right now the Admin Service cannot handle thousands of connections to it.

  8. Make SCCM Database Page Compression Check Enabled Part of Pre-req check

    Just upgraded from 1910 to 2002 and the upgrade failed and had to open a support case. Bottom line our SQL DBA made unauthorized changes to SCCM database and enabled PAGE compression on 370 tables in the SCCM database.

    Please add to the pre-req check the running of this SQL query if any tables are set to PAGE data compression fail the pre-req.

    SQL to Check: SELECT t.name AS tablename,
    i.name AS indexname,
    p.datacompressiondesc
    FROM sys.tables AS t
    INNER JOIN sys.indexes AS i
    ON t.objectid = i.objectid

  9. Approved workstations / servers for management

    Now that we can see connected consoles in Configuration Manager, then the next step should be approved servers or workstations for management only.

  10. Allow Site system proxy to be configured as Winhttp proxy when we enable PullDP to fetch the content from CDP

    Hello, When we try to configure the PullDP to use CDP as Source, the pullDP only uses the proxy configured on Winhttp service, neither the proxy configured in site system property or the Configmgr control panel applet are used. Seems at moment the admin has to configure Winhttp proxy manually to allow the pullDP to get the content from CDP, whereas this should be handled by sccm, whenever the Pulldp is being enabled in the console, the proxy configured on the Site system props has to be applied in the winhttp service on the system context as well.

  14. MBAM integration: Support non-HTTPS infrastructures

    At present time (MECM 2002) integrated MBAM support is only available for infrastructures in HTTPS mode (a.k.a. Native Mode).
    Since most of the customers most likely operate their SCCM/MECM in HTTP mode, we request the support of integrated MBAM in HTTP mode (a.k.a. Mixed Mode)

  15. Allow the exclusion of security groups or OU's in Group Discovery

    The system discovery is great but still allows for unwanted systems to be discovered within group discovery. Group discovery is needed to create query based collections based off of AD groups. Allowing Group Discovery Exclusions would be very beneficial to exclude non windows systems that are inAD.

  16. blue arrow instead of green when connected with CMG/ICMB

    When clients are connected with CMG or ICMB make the green icon a different color, like blue for instance. Since we can't manage devices the same way when they are connected through the cloud, it would help knowing this by simply having a different color.

  17. raise base .NET Framwork of CM from 4.0 to 4.6.x

    currently all file system operations only accept filepaths with maximum length of 256 chars which is related to the used .NET Framework within CM.
    Starting with .NET 4.6 this limitation is now raised to 32.767 chars which is very usueful if you for eample manage driver and driver packs, applications and so on per script and file systems within a domain network. (Servernames FQDN could be longer than 8 chars in our case at minumum 30 chars)

  18. KMS over CMG

    This is a whacky idea, but how cool would it be if we could use the CMG to handle KMS requests from clients? It would allow devices that are never on site to receive product licenses through the management channel that we're already using.

  19. In-console update - add reporting step for updating boot images

    When you run the in-console updates the boot images are updated but the step is not reported which happens after "Start WMI". Problem is you get a delay of 10-15 minutes before the next step. If you are monitoring the cmupdate.log file you can see the activity but no where else.

  20. Distribution Point with Network Bandwidth Limitation

    Hi Team,

    Based on the below article, there seems to be no control on distribution point rate limit in SCCM Client or Server DP.

    https://www.systemcenterdudes.com/dp-network-bandwith-limitation/

    For an instance, If the company wants to throttle the package transfer from SCCM primary site to remote ditrbution point at 10% available bandwidth between the specified duration. If the WAN bandwidth for the location is 10 Mbps then SCCM rate limit feature use the % you specify as to when it can use 100% of the available bandwith. In my example, Iā€™m telling SCCM to use 100% of the available bandwith 10% of theā€¦
