  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. 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€¦

  4. 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 ...

  7. Make it easier to find Management POint log files

    First the earth cooled, then SMS was developed.

    Interestingly, the Management Point role uses some aspects of the ConfigMgr client to handle client communications, and thus stores some of the log files related to Management Point stuff (like MP_Registration.log!) in the ConfigMgr client folder.

    This leads to countless forum posts like

    Helpless dude: 'Clients won't register',
    MyItForum: 'OK check MP Registration.log'
    Helpless: 'I don't have that log!?'
    MyItForum: 'OMG it's over here in this totally unrelated path'

    It doesn't have to be this way.

    What if we :

    A.) If a management point is also a configMgr site server, justā€¦

  8. 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.

  10. Ability to use ContentLibraryCleanupTool and ContentLibraryExplorer on Distribution Point in untrusted domain

    At the time you can only use ContentLibraryExplorer and ContentLibraryCleanupTool on DPs on same domain. It would be great that you could supply credentials to use these tools on DPs on untrusted domain.

  11. When a new SCOM management pack will be available for the latest release of SCCM?

    Currently a very old version of SCOM management pack is available to monitor the SCCM infrastructure. When MS will release a completely new MP to could properly monitor all type of servers in a complex environment?

    Thanks!

  13. Do a tool which automatically analyzes an SCCM site based on Windows 2012R2 exist? This tool should ha a choice to apply recommended fixes

    Hi.

    Is there a tool that automatically analyzes an SCCM site based on Windows 2012R2?

    This tool should have a choice to apply recommended remedian fixes for errors as a normal SCCM RAP reveals.

  14. 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€¦

  15. Allow copy to clipboard for any fields in Resource Explorer (Ctrl-C)

    Please add functionality to use the clipboard in the Device -> Resource Explorer tool.
    This would enable us to quickly grab some information for one of the systems, like copy a MAC-address or MSI install code.
    At the moment, we either have to export the whole table to .txt and filter using a text-editor or manually write out the information which is error-prone.

    Functionality should look like:
    - Double click in a field in the table.
    - Press Ctrl-C to copy to clipboard.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. pre-populated SCCM for demo purpose

    It would be nice to have a pre-populated SCCM that can quickly be setup to be able to showcase/demo SCCM when going to clients. I'm thinking something in the line of the already existing Microsoft Customer Immersion Experience (CIE) for Office 365, where for example a PowerShell script is used to drop the necessary sources and DB and performs a restore of an SCCM site.

  19. service connection tool - allow restart on downloads

    Enable restart on downloads using Service Connection tools. Some customers are in remote and/or highly controlled sensitive environments which require the use of the Service Connection Tool. These environments can experience interruptions in internet connectivity is interrupted which cause the download to fail or even an unexpected reboot of the computer you are using to download the updates. You have downloaded 10 or 15 GB of data and you have to start all over. This is frustrating and needs to be addressed.

  20. 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.
