  1. Management Point Health Alert

    When adding an MP, the box "Generate alert when MP is not health" is never checked by default. Should be checked by default, and why is this even an option? I don't see a scenario where an Admin wouldn't want to know the MP isn't health.

  3. Add Azure File Storage support for Remote Content Library

    For Site Server high availability, it is recommended to host Content Library and Package source on a remote location. Please add the support for using Azure Files (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/services/storage/files/).

  5. preserve permissions on cd.latest folder after CM update

    After applying an SCCM update via in-console servicing, permissions on the cd.latest folder are not retained. This requires any process/account backing up the cd.latest folder to have read access re-granted after every SCCM update.

  6. Add a "Enable Branchcache" box for the SUP Role.

    I was having trouble with BranchCache not deploying any updates. My SUP is on a standalone server and after some light digging I discovered that you have to enable that feature separately. It would be nice if the SUP properties section had "Enable BranchCache" option like the Distribution Point Role.

  7. SQL Usage rights comes along with SCCM license allows to setup SQL Always On AG ???

    My understanding is the SQL usage rights comes along with SCCM license will be Standard Edition only. Please correct me if I'm wrong. So does the SQL usage rights comes along with SCCM license allows to setup SQL Always On AG???

    As per below link, I could see that SQL usage rights of SCCM allows SQL Always On. But SQL Always on with SCCM requires Enterprise edition. This is were I'm confused, please help !!!

  8. Halting/pausing to perform remediation task during an Install of Configuration Manager

    Too many times I've began an install of Configuration Manager, complete the pre-requisite check with no failures, then begin the install only to have some small issue an HOUR INTO THE INSTALL totally derail the install forcing me to start all over. There has to be some way of implementing a halt or pause during the installation to remediate certain issues, like changing the TCP port number the SQL instance uses so the SQL Server broker service can be configured. Or at least make sure that prerequisite check covers everything that could cause an issue later down the line. It'sā€¦

  9. Service Connection Tool - don't overwrite log after each run

    By its very nature the ServiceConnectionTool requires several runs in order to fully complete its job. Prepare ā€¦ export ā€¦ connect ā€¦ import. Each run of the tool overwrites the log file.

    It would be preferable (imho) that the tool appended to the log file instead, so that a full record of the entire offline transaction is available.

    Thanks in advance, and you're welcome.

  10. Upgrade SCCM Order server roles

    When updating the infrastructure, the server update order by selecting the servers to put first.
    At a minimum, start with the infrastructure servers:
    - Connection Point Service
    - Provider
    - MP
    - ...

  11. 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.

  12. Bring back the option to change the retention period

    Bring back the option to change the retention period. The retention days will revert back to the default of 1095. We are not aware of separating a retention date for a cloned CAS database from the actual production CAS database.

  13. MBAM consoles and SQL HA

    During the BitLocker user portals setup, the database server name is supplied which the portals use to connect to for key recovery. BitLocker portals do not have a fallback mechanism. If you have an SQL AO configuration, you need to install a second portal so you can still use the recovery functionality bur you also need to notify every admin user to switch...Not really convenient.

  14. Standardize releases of SCCM Versions to twice a year instead of current frequency.

    Standardize releases of SCCM Versions to twice a year instead of the current frequency of three times a year 2002, 2006 and 2010 and so on.

    Please review the pattern of windows feature releases and a clear timeline on supportability for SCCM.

    Please give a road map of supportability whether or not the customer has moved to co-management or not

    SCCM Client Version supportability in line with Server Version. All these three may be clearly documented please.

  15. Expired MEM evaluation lab kit

    The current MEM evaluation lab kit expired on February 7, 2021. When will it be updated? I downloaded and installed it just days before its expiration. So how much longer can I keep evaluating it? This isn't documented very well.

  16. HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) 'NOT ENFORCED' on CMG provisioned Virtual Machine.

    The VM that is automatically provisioned as part of the Cloud Management Gateway setup from the ConfigMgr console, when security scanned, indicates HSTS is not turned on/ enforced.

    This has been discussed with Microsoft Support and Configuration Manager experts from Microsoft, as this is obviously a concern. All attempts to mitigate this issue failed as any settings made as advised by Microsoft were reverted or failed to mitigate the issue.

    We have assurances the service is secure however, we are aware that HSTS being off is recognised as a vulnerability to Microsoft and you recommend all to enforce this onā€¦

  17. Support for Dedup in content source directories

    The support for Dedup for the content library is fantastic. It would be great to extend this support for content sources as well.

  18. Unused HW Inventory table columns in SQL DB should be defined as "Sparse"

    After enabling the collection of 3 attributes from the win32_process WMI class from our PCs, the database blew in size, as all other (30+) attributes of that class take up as much disk space as if they had data in them.

  19. Enable Enhanced HTTP by default

    As an alternative to presenting a warning for HTTPS and potentially causing confusion, Enhanced HTTP should be enabled by default and there would be no need for warnings or prompts. EHTTP no longer requires Azure on-boarding so there is no reason not to enable it by default going forward. If the user wanted to use HTTPS they could still do so in the console after initial setup or upgrade is complete. The new warnings for HTTPS do not belong in the initial setup wizard because this is not a setting to be taken lightly, but being presented these choices upā€¦

  20. Ability to add a Management Point Role to a DP hanging off of a Secondary Site

    With the addition of allowing clients to prefer using a management point specified in a boundary group in R2 SP1 (or SP2), it would be a value add to be able to add the management point role to a site server that is a distribution point hanging off of a secondary site.
