  1. BITS throttling policies does not detect the Slow/Fast configuration

    BITS throttling policies does not detect the Slow/Fast configuration and applied for all requests.

    Scenario:
    ā€¢ Create a boundary group with multiple ā€œSite System Serversā€ mark some as Fast and some Slow connection.
    ā€¢ Apply a BITS throttling policy to clients as below.

    Client downloads from both DPā€™s with BITS limitation.

    Customer is requesting BITS to detect slow/fast and BITS throttling should not be applied to BPD01

  2. Increase SCCM Upgrade with the option of a Full Backup of All SCCM Files (not only Inboxes), All Registry and SQL

    Include the full backup of the database, registry and "all" SCCM set of files installed on the server (not only the INBOX folder): This could mitigate the problem we find binaries coexisting with previous version after restore failed SCCM upgrade atempts, allowing new update attempt to be made without failures. May be including the option to administrators to include this backup process as part of the Upgrade process with a simple flag.

  3. Improve/Flex SCCM Updates and Servicing new model

    Flexibility in the upgrade process for allowing manual execution (in part or 100% - in the manner of the process used for the updates of Cumulative Updates and new releases made to the 2012 version and the 2012 to 1511 - more flexible and less plaster, mature, stable and be technically more professional for whom is running). This can eliminate the dependence of customers for handling patches of unsuccessful updates failures in SCCM databases by Microsoft engineering in case of failure (especially in the tables that control the update process itself), since this type handling is not supported by Microsoftā€¦

  4. Multithreaded prereq checker

    The prereq checker will check a number of "things" on all site systems, including if the OS version is supported or not. However, if you have a large number of remote distribution points across very poor lines this can take many hours. I have recently upgraded a CM12R2 site to 1511. The prereq checker ran for more than 8 hours.

    My suggestion is simple, in an upgrade scenario the prereq checker should read the number of packages that distmgr is allowed to process an use the same number of threads to check remote distribution points (or other site roles).

  5. 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.

  6. 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€¦

  8. "Scale-Out" Primary Server

    It would be really great if there was an easy way to decouple components that run on one large Primary Site Server and transfer them on to a number of smaller machines and be able to migrate those roles across machines quickly (similarly to how this is done in SCOM with Management Servers and Resource Pools). That would allow the following:
    1. Simplify Maintenance - currently, every time we need to patch SCCM Primary Site Server, we need to agree upon the outage window with all the teams that rely on SCCM. If we could move the workload, we'd beā€¦

  9. General speed of SCCM Console and Client

    Over any new feature, I'd love SCCM to just be faster in general. Just creating deployments and testing deployments is a notoriously slow process, even for a small 200 user organisation like ours.

    First of all, the console itself is sluggish. There's a measurable delay accompanying almost every click. I'm not sure where the bottleneck is, but I'm suspecting it's the server-side architecture. It's bearable, but still frustrating when you're trying to get something done quickly. Replacing the clunky console with a snappier web interface (overdue in my opinion) would likely help, along with some architectural improvement in the background.

  10. 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.

  11. 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....

  13. Ability to run SCCM Update prerequisite check again if failed

    If you did not run a prerequisites check prior to installing the Configuration Manager and it fails you aren't able to run it again. The run prereq check button is greyed out and if you use Retry installation any warnings during prereq checks are ignored.

    It would be great if the Run prerequisites button would be available in this scenario to run it again without ignoring the warnings.

  14. FIX Bitlocker for MPs in Untrusted Forests

    FIX Bitlocker for MPs in Untrusted Forests - We use SCCM across untrusted forests. Upon upgrading to SCCM 1910 and implementing the integrated Bitlocker Management (integrated MBAM) we cannot install the Bitlocker websites on the MPs in the untrusted forest.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 'SCCM Essentials' for small-to-medium businesses

    SCCM is big and complicated. A lot of smaller organizations would benefit from a stripped-down edition that shipped as an appliance VM with a setup/integration wizard.

  19. Make installing sccm as easy as choosing a system role

    Setting up a new sccm site server is much more complicated than it should be. We fork out licensing costs and then have to bring in consultants... An installer similar to the vcenter vsphere setup would be awesome, or better yet choose the role and off we go. We just need to provide a naked 2012 or 2016 server and the installer does the rest using the best practices for configuring sql.

  20. Add wizards for in-console updates

    When doing the upgrade to 1602, there is not a very good visual indicator of progress without manually opening a log or moving to the monitoring tab. Would prefer to see a progress window open once the update or pre-req check has been started. (like you get when going through the normal setup)
