  1. Super Long timeout for "INFO: Checking status of SharedAccess..." during setup/upgrade

    Every time we do a ConfigMgr installation or upgrade - even now with in-console updates - there's a ridiculously long wait (105 minutes) when the setup tries to verify that the SharedAccess service has been restarted. Two problems: 1) the timeout is way too long; don't know how this is even calculated but in our much smaller lab environment it's only 7 minutes, and 2) the service is disabled so why are you even trying to start it in the first place????

    This causes our site server upgrades to take much longer than they need to and introduces extended outagesā€¦

  2. Status Message Queries - Allow Criteria for SMS_StatusMessage.Severity

    In the Status Message Queries, when creating a custom query, you cannot select the Severity of the Status Message under the criteria tab.

    You can edit the WQL and add SMS_StatusMessage.Severity not like "1%" to show only Errors and Warnings, however, this does not always work (like when you have a prompted date/time value).

  3. Fix "Invalid Object Name 'SetupInfo' "

    Resolve the error described here - this is the type of error that results in customers needlessly rebuilding servers to get around it:

  5. 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.

  6. 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:

  7. Integrate an Distribution Sender Interpreter

    Please integrate an Log Interpreter for easier Log Control
    Such as http://www.danrichings.com/?page_id=12 for Sender Log.

    This makes the Life for Package Distribution and Server Control easier in an Enterprise Enviroment.

  8. Add Database Checking to pre-req check

    It would be great if functionality were added to the pre-req check to include an option to do some of the features of the testdbupgrade option of setup. For example, adding an option to check for foreign key constraint issues or other problems that would prevent an upgrade would be a great addition and would prevent issues where the upgrade fails in the middle of the DB upgrade portion of setup.

  9. 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€¦

  10. 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. Implement a sccm managed system to enable HTTPS communication between clients and site system roles

    As the title says:
    Implement a system to enable HTTPS communication between clients and site system roles from the SCCM console, comparable to the Advanced HTTP Site System feature so that we don't have to setup and configure AD Certificate Services to distribute certificates to the clients.
    Or a mechanism that allows the Azure AD Security token, in scenario's with hybrid domain join in place, to be used to authenticate against https enabled internal site systems

  13. Allow changes to DP Description while its in Maintenance mode.

    Allow changes to DP Description while its in Maintenance mode. Once a DP is in MM you cannot change any of the Properties. It would be helpful for people who do not have console access to be able to see that the DP is in MM. Either allowing Admins to modify the name or have CM do it.

  14. Ability to view and export boundaries with Network and Subnet Mask information

  15. Migration Wizard filter by security scope

    The migration wizard needs several improvements:
    Allow for filtering by source hierarchy security scope - We use security scopes for all RBA settings, but when importing objects I have to assign the same scope to all objects which is impractical when importing thousands of objects. There is no practical way to only select items with the same scope from within the wizard either as scope isn't displayed.

    Other improvements:
    Allow for resize of the wizard
    Allow for filtering of objects
    Allow for multi-select of objects in the available objects pane (shift-select)

  17. Update the console installer version properties for hotfixes & TP

    Currently the version properties on the Console's install files aren't reliably the same as the version of the console that they will actually install, making them always up-to-date would make packaging the console as an application much simpler.

    For example- AdminConsole.msi's version is the same as the initial console version for a release and isn't updated when hotfixes are applied, eg 2002 with and without KB4560496 list the same version, but install different console versions.
    The same thing also happens on TPs, eg both 2007 and 2008's ProductVersions are 5.2010.1031.1000 but the TP2008 console is 5.2010.1043.1000.

    ConsoleSetup.exe's version does seemā€¦

  18. Simplify configmgr server certificate management

    Currently it is rather cumbersome to use PKI-issued certificates in many places of ConfigMgr infrastructure (especially DPs), and aoutomate them. ConfigMgr acts as a CA and issues its own certs without any admin control - maybe letting us set it up as a subordinate (to the one probably existing in many companies) CA would solve the issue? Any other ideas?

  19. Stop DP upgrade when DP is in maintenance

    Maintenance mode for Distribution Points is an awesome feature. Thank you for implementing it!
    It significantly reduces amount of "false positive" errors and makes monitoring significantly easier.
    Please also include DP upgrades in list of tasks that are suspended when DP is in Maintenance mode.
    Currently (v 2006), as also noted in documentation, Distribution Manager continues trying to upgrade DPs that are in Maintenance mode, which generates error messages that make monitoring more difficult.
    Our remote sites occasionally go offline for extended periods of time, so this would reduce number of errors support engineers need to review.

  20. Specify end date for DP Maintenance Mode

    When enabling Maintenance Mode on a DP it would be handy to specify a "end date" for it to automatically come out of MM on.

    In addition, if there was a way to put a comment when setting MM to record why it was set.
