  1. Add site setting to Automatically enable/disable maintenance mode as DPs go offline and come back online

    Currently we run a powershell script every half hour that pings all our DPs and places any that dont respond to a series of 3 pings with a 45 second wait between them into maintenance mode. This script also takes any DPs currently in maintenance mode that do respond to a ping out of maintenance mode. Can this be integrated into the console? Seems like most of the code base for this is already there with the MP showing online status for clients in the console (would obviously have to handle non-managed DPs as well).

  2. 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€¦

  4. 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.

  6. Do not allow "SMS" as Site Code Name

    I found some customers which has "SMS" as name of SCCM site. This make a lot of problems with normal management. This name should also be make as do not allowed (wizard blocks also other names). And if already named, it should allow one time change.

    We do document this, and this has been the case since at least SMS 2003.

    See:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/279868/reserved-site-code-names-in-sms-2003-and-configuration-manager
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/servers/deploy/install/prepare-to-install-sites

    I’ve also confirmed that Setup disallows you from using the several “reserved” site code names and has done so since at least 2012 SP2.

    Was unattended setup used? That’s the only way I can think of that may have bypassed this validation.

  8. Possibility to reduce SMSbackup database size

    Is it possible to provide another option to back up SCCM database during SMSBackup so that the database size can be reduced?

  9. Wake on LAN should be possible to trigger from the CAS

    It will be a nice thing if the WOL can be done from the CAS based on the site assignment of the client.

  10. SCCM should support enabling scenarios instead of enabling invidual roles and settings

    Today for various E2E scenarios you install the required roles, set client agent settings, and ensure pre-reqs are all installed. I would prefer that I just select to enable a feature, SCCM scans my role servers, makes a suggestion of what needs to be installed where and various pre-reqs that are needed and give me the option to select just do it. At that point everything would get setup automatically in a way that is suggested as best practice by the SCCM product.

  13. Decouple Site System Installation from Distribution Manager & Site Component Manager

    I think the installation/uninstallation, monitoring, & availability of site system roles / components should be handed off to a "Site System Installation Manager" component. This would free up the Distribution Manager & Site Component Manager from handling similar duties and allow Distribution Manager to be more content-centric rather than handling the installation of DPs through it as well. This could also potentially allow a role or site system to be flagged as in maintenance, not ready, etc., so content or data wasn't distributed or communicated to that component.

  15. Enable Performance Counters for all Components

    Expose Performance Counters for all ConfigMgr Components, and extend beyond the basic performance counter-set on offer today.

    This will allow us to implement solutions around monitoring the product in finer detail, as well as provide a rich backdrop for troubleshooting analysis.

  17. Include/Exclude Some Roles

    ā€¢ Bank Configuration Manager team wants to have the ability to include/exclude some roles in the attached Pictures.
    ā€¢ For example use for MP only and exclude DP/SMP etc
    ā€¢ Like three checkboxes and enabling/disabling each of the roles independent of each other (1st attachment)

    Or even much like attachment 2..
    Enabling/disabling roles on that screen based on the Fast/Slow setting

  19. Improve monitoring in "Upgrades and Servicing"

    Improve the interface with SCCM administrators to allow better monitoring of the update stream (perhaps allowing the update to be launched from the console of the server that will be updated instead of only from the center console - which would allow greater interaction with the operating system in SCCM server to be updated - also making the process more flexible). Also experiencing greater confidence and visibility for administrators who perform it.
