  2. Show Last Backup Time of Site in Console (SQL / Site Maintenance)

    It would be really useful to have the Last Backup Time of the SQL database and successful site maintenance task listed somewhere against each site. In addition, being able to right-click on a site and selecting "see backup log" would be useful (displaying the smsbkup.log or corresponding status messages for the SMSSITEBACKUP component via the console). This would make checking for successful backups much simpler for admins.

    So far the only screen I can see this being useful on is under Admin > Hierarchy Configuration > Sites, but it obviously fits better under Monitoring. Maybe a new nodeā€¦

  4. Status Filter Rules Should Allow for Text Filters/Regex

    Status filter rules are great. I want to be able to add a filter to a rule, so that only event IDs with specific text trigger an action. Today I have to do this in code, passing all events matching an event ID, which causes a lot of processing overhead.

  5. Site Servicing status - monitoring node extension

    Now as some customers donā€™t trust Microsoft that hard to send telemetry data , many valid questions at customers came up . Currently at my knowledge ( correct me if I am wrong ) , there is no status at the 1511 console thru the monitoring pane that says when :


    •    The service Connection point is connected and up and running with what privacy mode (display mode only)ā€¦
      

    •    The Service Connection point is healthy and when it did itā€™s last sync . They want an additional node like the software update sync status to see when it synced correctly with

  6. If each ConfigMgr TP build does not get its own full install, provide a way to reset the expiration.

    My ConfigMgr TP4 has expired. It is currently on build 1601. I cannot upgrade to 1603 to reset the expiration and I do not want to have to rebuild my entire test platform again to have a new activation.

  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. Allow unicode passwords in ConfigMgr

    With Windows OS you can use unicode characters in passwords. Unfortunately, ConfigMgr doesn't support unicode passwords. If you have unicode characters in your password, ConfigMgr shows a message that password is not correct.

  9. One, Single, graphical dashboard to monitor and manage WAN bandwidht usage by SCCM in complex environment

    every SCCM admin in the world knows it generates a lot of traffic, especially if uptades and software deployment are not continuously tuned and properly configured. A centralized dashboard to manage Bandwidht usage between site servers, between clients and servers and to apply QoS and traffic shaping policies would be a great improvement in a complex environment.

  10. Support changing the name or domain of SCCM servers

    Currently it is unsupported to change the name or domain on any SCCM servers. However, there may be scenarios where a potential change in domain is required, such as a domain refresh or a company purchase/divestment. Right now it would mean having to rebuild the SCCM environment in the new domain, which can be extremely costly and time consuming.

  12. Historical Client Connections - Management Point

    It would be great to be able to report on within SQL how many clients in total have connected to a Management Point/s.

    The scenario being for example, in a newly configured IBCM environment it would be nice to be able to report on how many clients in total have connected to one of the IBCM enabled MP's, business use being able to report on current uptake.

    Currently you can report on LastScan but that is unfortunately only taken as a current snapshot and data would change as clients move back and forth between Internet and Intranet networks.

  14. Make siteserver move easier.

    Now with Site Server HA, I can move to a new Server OS... but moving all the roles (SQL, DPs, Content) is tedious. Can we make it easier to move it all at once. (Panu's request)

  15. Support Active/Active mode with Site Server High Availability

    Now that Site Server HA is supported in 1806 (primaries) / 1810 (hierarchies)ā€¦ it is only Active/Passive. Add capabilities for Active/Active.

  16. Allow easier move to Site Server HA

    Too much manual work, and juggling of steps... setup of content library, move providers, move SQL, move roles remote. If I'd like to just move machines to a newer OS, or a new machine name... give me the easiest way possible to move the switch.

  17. Pre-stage Update bits on secondaries

    Current branch updates and hotfixes take a long time to apply. This could be sped up if we could do 2 things.


    1. run a pre-req on the secondaries ahead of the upgrade, like we can do for the primary.

    2. pre-stage the bits on the secondary, It take s a long time to copy the bits over and greatly prolongs the update process.

  19. Speedup Site Reset during Upgrade and Maintenance

    When doing Inplace Upgrades of Sites or Maintenance of Sites that require Site Resets (like changing Active/Passive, moving SQL, ā€¦) it takes hours or days for the Site Reset to complete in complex Environments with Site Systems behind slow (low bandwidth, high latency) links. And the worst Thing About that is, that PXE mostly is down during that Phase until the reset is finished. I would appreciate to Speed that up, prio1 make PXE stay available during reset, prio2 only copy binaries over WAN links when needed (Upgrade) and maybe use WinRM for Controlling the remote Servers. Also making theā€¦

  20. PreReqCheck for WindowsManagementInstrumentation Service Dependencies

    Would be nice to have a PreReqCheck that checks for Services that depend on WindowsManagementInstrumentation (Winmgmt). If other Services are detected than the ones coming with Windows (like TrendMicro TMListen), log a warning, that this may interfere with Setup, Upgrades and Site Resets, if the Service cannot be stopped the normal way (i.e. because AV TamperProtection requires a Password to stop it). Seen several Environments, where this brought Maintenance to fail or take uneeded Long. The warning should inform, that the Admin Needs to make sure, that the Service can be stoped, or to stop it by himself before theā€¦
