  1. Improve and Automate the Content Cleanup Tool

    The original UV item for the content cleanup tool was closed when 1702 was released. However, that item has several suggestions for improvement that were not implemented:

    Handle in-process or failed content. This can quickly become a catch-22 where content is failing because a lack of disk space. In process I understand, but if content failed then an option to force it anyways and remove any content not tied to a valid package.

    Support cleanup of the site server's content library.

    Minimize the rights needed to run the tool. Currently, the tool requires 'Full Administrator' which seems overkill. Why wouldā€¦

  2. Adopt, Integrate the most used community tools

    There are a lot of great community tools/script/services out there. (Modern Driver/BIOS management, ConfigMgr Webservice ect.)

    We all use them with a purpose and because its need. (Functionality is missing in Configmgr)

    The MVPā€™s do a great job to support those tools but if anything at the backend changes or they stop development they may be broken.

    I know you dont Need to use those tools if you dont have the knowledge to read and adjust them but thats not How it works in the real World.

  3. CMTRACE - load blocks of file instead of whole file into memory to speed up intial loads

    When opening file in CMTRACE, load portions of the log file (blocks) into memory instead of whole log so intial load is quicker and consumes less ram.

  4. Wake on Lan feature that does not require deploying an application.

    I want a simple Wake on Lan tool on the SCCM console which does not require me to initiate it as part of a application or package deployment. I want an option available on the device collection level when, after selecting the device collection, is available upon right mouse clicking the collection. Perhaps this could go in the DEPLOY selection(to save on real estate) or its own option Wake On Lan.

  5. hashdir.exe for SCCM CB SHA256

    The old version of HASHDIR.exe tool doesn't work with new version of SCCM. This could be because of SHA256 hashing of SCCM CB.
    Is there any possibility to release a new version HASHDIR.exe tool for SHA256 hashed content. This would be really useful whenever SCCM admins want to perform has miss match troubleshooting ...
    This concern was raised by Stefan - https://twitter.com/stefan_farnik/status/1030075218365227008

  7. Provide a new tool for cleaning up duplicate GUID's

    Since Microsoft deprecated CCMDELCERT we no longer have a method of cleaning up duplicate GUID's. Please provide a method for us to do this.

  8. Fix ContentLibraryCleanupTool's inability to run in several cases

    ContentLibraryCleanupTool should be updated to do the following two actions:
    1. Instead of failing when encountering non-installed pacakges, ContentLibraryCleanupTool should keep an array or list of in-progress and failed packages (anything "Not fully installed"), untarget those packages to the DP and wait until those removal messages have been processed by the DP, continue cleaning up the content library on said DP, then retarget all the packages in the array/list of packages when it is finished.
    2. Automatically double the wmi quota limit when encountering quota limit errors.

    Hardening this utility in this way will alleviate the manual tediousness of fixingā€¦

  9. Add line numbers in CMTrace

    I often use a tool to search all log files for a particular entry, and the search results tell me what line the entry is located on within each log file. If CMTrace had line numbers, it would help locate the search results within the log files.

  11. Add "color" (i.e. error level) filtering to cmtrace

    I open cmtrace for one reason: to find the red lines. Just thinking about opening a log file and dragging the scroll bar around triggers my carpal tunnel.

    Please add a button to quickly toggle between showing "all", "only errors (red)", and "only warnings and errors (yellow and red)".

    The logic (however rudimentary it may be) is already there. This is really only a (huge quality of life) GUI/view change.

  12. Bring back CCMClean support

    We need a "manual" or force clean - a complete removal of all traces of the ConfigMgr client to be supported again.

    Too much wasted time is spent trying to track down all the left overs that cause unhealthy clients.

    Thankfully some of those in the community have published scripts that help, but unfortunately they are "not supported" and many times incomplete.

  13. Add Maintenance Task Results and Details to Monitoring in Console

    Today, you configure maintenance tasks under the administration workspace in the console. To see the results and details around those tasks, you have to go into the component status and parse through the SMSDATABASENOTIFICATION_MONITOR to see when tasks started, stopped, how many records were cleaned, or whether the task failed, or, you can run a query directly against the database that shows when the tasks last started/stopped....but even then the task names in the DB don't necessarily match the names in the console. I propose that there is an area in Monitoring workspace that shows the status forā€¦

  14. redirect wake on lan broadcasts

    Our clients boot and shutdown into an Authentication VLAN (for posture checking before connecting to production network). Wake on LAN wants to send broadcasts to the subnets that the clients were last discovered.

    Need the ability to configure on Site Servers to send the broadcasts to a specified subnet regardless of where the client was last discovered.

  16. Fix Support Center on running app deployment eval cycle remotely

    When Support Center runs App Deployment Evaluation cycle locally, it uses Schedule 121, which is OK. However, when itā€™s connected to remote machine, it uses Schedule 123, which was deprecated at some point.

    Future release of Support Center should always use schedule 121.

  17. CMTrace select font eg monospace

    Allow to select view font in CMTrace, eg monospace. Per session (some files look better in default font, some would look better to view in monospace).

  18. Do not require local admin to run service connection tool to download offline updates

    In an offline environment customers use the serviceconnectiontool to download the update bits. When running the service connection tool the administrator has to have local admin rights, even to just download the content using -connect. We should not require customers to run this as an administrator just to download media.

  19. Switch to set view when opening logs in CMtrace.

    A switch to pass when opening multiple log files in CMtrace via command line. Example: you want to monitor a client install, so you want to open ccmsetup.log and client.msi.log.

    Something like cmtrace <path to file1>,<path to file2> -Vertical
    or cmtrace <path to file1>,<path to file2> -Horizontal
