  1. Support for SQL always-on multi-subnet failover

    Recently, we tried to deploy SCCM DR solution using SQL AlwaysOn in different Geo locations (multi-subnet), however setup was failing. The Microsoft documentation was not clear for enough. After talking directly with the Microsoft engineer, he confirmed that SQL AlwaysOn in multi-subnet environment is not supported with SCCM (v1802 at that time). Considering this, itā€™s pretty useless to have SQL AlwaysOn on the same subnet as main purpose of having a cluster is to design a solution for a DR situation.

    Can you please confirm if Microsoft is working on AlwaysOn with multi-subnet/multi-site support for SCCM? When this feature willā€¦

  3. Make SQL broker port in use detection part of pre-req itself

    The setup fails to configure SQL Broker during the setup and it is such a pain to cleanup everything after that. SQL broker port in use detection ( in case we install 2nd site in the hierarchy) should be part of pre-req itself. we manually specify the broker port in setup wizard and thus we should have a pre-req check in before we begin the actual setup process.

    Setup fails with below error as we don't do it at the moment.

  4. Manage access accounts globally for the remote content library feature to work - 1806

    With the new feature of having a remote content library for the primary site (a prerequisite for HA ability), there is an issue with the access permissions set on the remote content library.

    During the process of adding a new application/package/driver/bootimage/etc, configmgr creates all the necessary files and folders in its own content library, however on one particular file structure for each package, it takes off inheritance of permissions and adds only the storage servers: 'users' and 'administrators' group.

    This causes issues when the storage is hosted remotely and the primary site computer account is not a member of theā€¦

  5. check performance gains for specific compatibility levels when servicing sccm

    When servicing SCCM (for example from 1802 to 1806) the compatibility level was changed from 110 to 130. The compatibility level was set to 110 specific because of major performance issues with level 130.
    With the compatibility level being reset the update from 1802 to 1806 is already running for 43 hours and still not completed (CE level is already changed back to 110). Why not running a few SQL query's, based on this article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3196320/sql-query-times-out-or-console-slow-on-certain-configuration-manager-d to check performance for each possible level. Then based on the results, change the compatibility level? If we have this kind of performance issueā€¦

  6. Disconnected Secondary Site

    This would allow a Secondary Site to operate disconnected from the hierarchy for a set amount of time. During this disconnected state the Primary above it would not try to reach out to the Secondary (and vice versa) but would wait (similar to a prestage DP) for the interval specified before trying. Also the Secondary while disconnected would process its client information similar to a Primary and optimize the replication data so that when the connection was re-established there wouldn't be a huge backlog. This would allow hierarchies with devices that have limited or no connectivity for extended periods atā€¦

  7. Distribution point configuration status - reset alerts

    When looking at the status of my DPs in Distribution point configuration status there is a yellow alert that won't go away due to some error that occurred during dp migration, there is no package ID associated with it so I am unable to use any sql tricks or tools to make it go away. I suggest making an option via gui to "clear alerts" like I can do via Site status. please add this feature

  8. Pre-Req Checks

    Perform permission checks on key locations where sccm will be setup. We had a problem experienced a few years ago where we had a "hash mismatch" error b/c the account I was using to perform the upgrade did not have permission to the install directory.

    this problem is still possible in CB

  9. Non Matching Custom Port DP Sharing/Migration Support

    Would like to see the product support moving from a 2012 hierarchy which is using custom ports for client communication and IIS bindings, into a CB hierarchy that is using default ports. My understanding is that both environments need to match exactly from a port perspective and we have over 400 remote DP's that will need to be removed manually from SCCM 2012, reimaged and then redeployed as remote DP in CB all over slow links. We have no internet connectivity options for a cloud DP scenario in these location (like China). This will significantly delay our migration globally toā€¦

  10. Allow install of State Migration Point role on client operating systems like Distribution Points

    It would be convenient if we could use PCs with client Windows OS (eg. Windows 7 or later) as User State Migration Points to backup and restore user data via USMT on remote locations, like we already do with Distribution Points. Given that, more or less this would imply the creation and management of a "simple" network share on the client, it could be relatively easy to implement and at the same time relieve us from the burden of using scripts etc. to configure and use USMT manually in our TSs.

  11. MVP-Current Logged User History and Date/Time

    With the addition of the current logged user on 1806, it would be good to have a history of log on/log off and the date/time sccm identified it. similar with the inventory history.

  12. Allow Preferred MPs with IBCM and CMG

    Not sure which category to put this in BUT I've come across a requirement to have both IBCM and CMG in place, at least temporarily anyway. It would be very helpful if we could use some kind of MP affinity or preferred MP between the IBCM MP and the CMG MP. Obviously the boundaries are ignored as this is internet based. A reg key change (or something even better) would suffice.

  14. Hotfix Rollback Option for the Microsoft SCCM CB Hotfixes Releases

    Hello: Microsoft release monthly updates for Microsoft SCCM Current Branch and sometime hotfixes. The hotfix rollback installation for Microsoft SCCM is not straight forward because Microsoft SCCM CB hotfixes installation has own process and procedures which executed in the backend. So it better to have an option provided to rollback the Hotfix.. Ex: KB4339794....

  16. Servicing Telemetry / Version Upgrade

    Air-gapped / never-connect, never-transfer networks are left with no method to perform any upgrades due to the requirement to submit telemetry data. The offline servicing method is not a valid method to perform these actions due to security regulations. No amount of assurances from the Microsoft team about the content of files will suffice.

    Telemetry data would have to be plain-text, human-readable, and of an appropriate size to allow manual transcribing to permit this methodology to work. Even then, some information which Microsoft may seem as innocent / standard is likely to prevent export on some networks due to variousā€¦

  17. Upgrading Secondary Site Servers to 1802 failed due to prereqs detection

    At a customer I've updated the Primary Site Server to 1802, this went without problems. The customer has 7 sec.sites. From ConfigMgr Console I started the upgrade which failed. In ConfigMgrSetup.log it stated that the SQLSysClrTypes.msi failed to install (see attachment). This prerequisite was already installed on the server. Also the 'Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Management Objectā€™ was already installed. Which eventually gave the same issue.
    I've worked around the issue by removing the MSI Installer registrations of these 2 prereqs in the registry. The upgrade was now able to end successful.
    Somehow the Upgrade sequence doesn't check if theseā€¦

  18. No possibility to upgrade to 1802 on a secondary site with cd.latest

    At a customer with 7 remote Secondary Sites, connected through a very small satellite WAN connection, we would like to schedule or manually start an upgrade to 1802 from the cd.latest instead of the Upgrade through ConfigMgr Console.
    As this method will copy one GB of data our customer would like to have more control on when this data is sent over and when the upgrade should start. A manual or offline upgrade through the cd.latest would be helpful.
    As far as I could find, the only possibility is through the Console.

  20. Expand Secondary Site Re-Assign Distribution Point to Migrate DP co-located on Secondary Site

    See https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/9197001-ability-to-move-distribution-point-from-one-second

    Currently, if the DP is co-located on a secondary site server, you are unable to move or re-assign the DP to a new site. Expand this capability to have the ability to move or migrate the DP to another site, specifically a primary site in this scenario.
