  2. AD Group Discovery

    It would very helpful if AD Group Discovery had the capability to bring in attributes for the group, just like AD User Discovery has this capability. example ManagedBy attribute. When writing SSRS reports this would be very helpful.

  3. custom site default settings

    Currently ConfigMgr comes with tons of default Settings, Discovery Methods, Site Maintenance, Client Eval Settings, etc.
    They are super generic, doesn't matter if I'm settings up a lab for 10 VMs on PC Hardware, or for prod with 500K clients on enterprise hardware, I get the same settings. I'd like the installer to scan the hardware it's getting installed on, and have that as a starting point, then ask me additional questions, Intended purpose, approx expected clients, single site server, or future additional servers, and expected roles, then give custom recommended template for settings to best fit my environment. I'dā€¦

  4. Site Hierarchy Topology- to include all servers and site system roles

    In the console, under monitoring, there's an embryo to a server/network topology diagram. But it only includes a basic topology of all primary systems. I guess most customers only have one primary server- but would love to visualize their Topology with all site-systems included, with their enabled roles.

  5. Allow non AD integrated SMTP servers for alert meail notification

    When configuring authenticated SMTP only AD style credential (domain\username) are supported.

    This prevent thar organizations with smtp server that authetictes against other than AD identity providers can be used.

    It would be desirable to allow the use of arbitrary authenticated SMTP server.

  6. Make deletion age configuration in "Delete Aged Status Messages" Site Maintenance task

    The "Delete Aged Status Messages" site maintenance task does not allow you to configure an age at which the messages will be deled. This would be helpful for audit purposes.

  7. Add new steps to Update Pack Installation status about boot image updates

    Updating ConfigMgr boot images takes quite a long time. However, ConfigMgr console's Update Pack Installation status doesn't tell anything about boot image update. Boot image updates is just part of step: Start WMI.

    Please just add new steps to Update Pack Installation status window:
    - Updating <boot image name>

  8. SCCM Backup fails if DB is remote and Case of DB Name is different between Registry of Primary and in DB

    SCCM Backup fails if DB is remote and Case of DB Name is different between Registry of Primary and in DB ("SQLDatabaseName" in Table "SC_SiteDefinition")

    SCCM Backup fails if DB is remote and Case of DB Name is different between Registry of Primary and in DB ("SQLDatabaseName" in Table "SC_SiteDefinition")

    • In Lab, both the DB and Registry entry were in CAPS as "CM_VNP"

    - But when we further checked the logs from customer we saw that this is different as below:

  9. Issues after upgrading to 1706

    Iā€™ve updates to 1706 in my lab. There are a few things that they donā€™t work appropriate way.
    1) Log compmon.log said that ā€œCan not get the current execution state for component CONFIGURATIONMANAGERUPDATE since it is not installed or completed installing.ā€. That is not true.The update process is finished. The console said all tasks were completed.
    2) Configuration Manager Service Manager does not communicate with most of components. I have no idea why because they work

  10. Support for Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V Production Checkpoints for Site System VMs

    Itā€™s not possible to use the new Production Checkpoint Feature of Windows Server 2016 Hyper-V with VMs that are running a Configuration Manager Site System role. The Checkpoint creation fails.
    To enable modern host-based backup like DPM 2016, it is necessary that ConfigMgr. Fully supports this Hyper-V feature.

  11. Data Warehouse service point and MBAM compliance information (sccm 1702 and later)

    When sccm deletes old computer information (as per the scheduled system maintenace task), compliance information for Bitlocker is also removed for that computer.
    Can the datawarehouse servicepoint also copy MBAM compliance to the datawarehouse database (when MBAM is integrated with SCCM).

  12. Support installing new technical preview releases on an expired technical preview installation

    Occasionally I forget to upgrade one of my ConfigMgr TP environments, and it expires. Once expired, the servicing node won't allow new TP releases to be installed. Remove this restriction, let me upgrade expired TPs with new TP releases so I don't have to reinstall and reconfigure.

  13. When running the "Modify site database configuration" option, allow support for keeping SQL servername the same

    When going through the process of changing the configuration for the site database (in order to move it to a new SQL server), if you are keeping your SQL server name the same, the wizard will not allow you to input the same SQL server name as the old. We want to get rid of our SQL 2008 R2 servers running on Windows 2008 R2 and replace with Server 2016 and SQL 2016, but also keep the same hostname for the new server. Our only option since the wizard doesn't support this scenario is to do a backup and restore.

  14. Change SUP synchronization message to secondary site SUP's to either be high priority or not use file based replication

    If you have secondary site SUP's they are told to synchronize by the primary site by file based replication (sender sends a file to the secondary site telling it to sync).

    This can be a problem if your secondary site(s) are operating under bandwidth controls, for example if you set to only allow high priority data to be sent during the working day to conserve bandwidth.

    If the primary SUP synchronizes but the sender is unable to drop the required file to the secondary site, then what happens is all clients in the secondary site will try and switch theirā€¦

  15. WinRM SSL for installation of remote site systems + TCP 445.

    Need certificate based communication between site server and site systems for server role installation. Need to remove dependency on RPC Dynamic ports and use WinRM SSL for secure communication and installation of site roles. This would improve security by eliminating a high range of ports that must be open between site systems.

  16. Look for Connection account before trying to connect to site server

    SCCM Site Server should look for a connection account (Site system properties - "Use another account for installing this site system") prior to attempting to connect to a remote site system MP/DP/SUP instead of trying to use the Site Servers machine account first, and when that fails, look for a Connection account. Currently (as of 1702 + KB4019926), network intrusion software is detecting SCCM as trying to brute force login into its remote site system using its machine account.

  17. I would like to seperate the roles for example DP and PXE should be two different roles.

    I would love to separate roles instead of having PXE embedded with the DP role they should be separate.

  18. Put the complete SCCM Version into the database instead of having to query registry keys to get it

    Currently the Database contains the build number and shows the base version such as 5.00.8498.1000 where the updated version is 5.00.8498.1700 or 1702 (currently in my case).

    It cant be hard to store the "Friendly" version information in the database.

    You could even break it down into Site version, Console Version and Client version if necessary if these components are likely to get out of step due to hotfixes.
