  1. SMSDPMon.log Size

    Currently can't find a way to customize log size. Tried updating HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SMS\DP\Logging\@Global without success. Logs are 500KB by default and can't find a way to adjust them. It would be nice if it was at least 2.5MB by default or even better, customizable.

  2. Option to right click on a computer or collection and rerun an advertisement.

    Option to right click on a computer or collection and rerun an advertisement.

    This will help us a lot because when doing mass deployments many times we have deployments failing on few computers.
    If we have this option we can either right click on individual computers and rerun advertisement or create a new collection of failed computers and rerun advertisement on collection.

  3. Support Center Advanced Log File Viewer Advanced Filtering

    It would be great if in the new Suppert Center Advanced Log File Viewer, there would be an option for Advanced Filters, when opening a log file, the filters load automatically and we dont need to load them manually everytime we open a log.
    Same as with the other buttons, that can be activated and deactivated.

  4. Have ccmeval fix a corrupt GPO cache file

    With 8000+ workstations we regularly see a corrupt GPO cache file. This breaks the policy updates, including policies for SCCM (security) updates.
    Detection:
    - Event log
    - gpudate command fails with error
    Remediation:
    - Delete file c:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\machine\registry.pol
    - Run gpudate /force
    - Restart ccmexec service

  5. Support logging to a central database

    For large environments the ability to log to a central database. this would collective provide a central location for all server logs (DPs, MPs, ect..) deployments with a high server count (500 DPs), if\when there is a issue, the logs role over very quickly and the chance at catching the issue is not likely

  6. CMG reset feature

    I've experienced this situation on a few customer sites. I've been unable to "fix" a broken Cloud Management Gateway which was previously working. On these occasions the easiest way to resolve is to remove and re-deploy the CMG. This always fixes the problem but seems a little extreme. I'd like to see a CMG reset feature (along the same lines of the site reset feature) which resets the CMG services and permissions instead of having to remove it.

  7. SCCM Capture - Reboot problem with Windows 10 1703 just before WinPE step

    I just started creating a new set of Windows 10 1703 images and while the build operation went just fine, the capture part seems to be experiencing a bit of trouble just before entering the WinPE step. As it turns out the "reboot" before WinPE just doesn't take place although it's clearly visible during the TS progress window that that's the intention. The target system remains in a state where most drivers are cleaned up as part of the sysprep step.

    The temporary remediation is to manually reboot the system. Afterwards it continues straight to WinPE and captures the systemā€¦

  9. management point iis log cleanup

    We are finding we have reached a point where the IIS logs on our management points are frequently close to filling the disks. It would be nice for ConfigMgr to have a *native* ability to configure a cleanup of IIS logs for components that use it rather than having to create a separate "scheduled task" or similar action.
    This could even be an action triggered when the component monitor reports a low disk space on MP status.

  11. hardware inventory size

    If Hardware Inventory is limited to the default 5MB MIF File size it likely fails with Asset Intelligence enabled (Recently Used Apps) on a number of clients, because inventory gets too big. Make the client aware of the maximum MIF size (should be configureable in the console, not registry). to not send HWInv, if its clear that it will be dropped. Send Status message indicating that instead. Maybe determine the class causing that (# of instances per class should indicate that easily) and exclude it for affected clients (but send status message warning also). And also do not send deleteā€¦

  12. Upgrade logging improvements

    Upgrade needs to have better logging - for example during an upgrade, the spimportinventory stored procedure was failing on a merge with SQL error 8672:
    The MERGE statement attempted to UPDATE or DELETE the same row more than once. This happens when a target row matches more than one source row.

    Tracking this down was difficult because of the MERGE statement - if each row were being processed separately, the specific problem data could be called out when an error occurs.

  13. Fix typos in the product

    I figured it was time to have a UserVoice item that gathers together all the known misspellings throughout the product. Add your own to the list below making sure to note the version of Configuration Manager. Be sure to indicate where in the console or what log.

    [CB 1702][ruleengine.log] Deadlock detected, not retry since there is 1 open transaction(s)

    [CB 1702] [Package Manager Status Message] Package Transfer Manager is currently sending software distribution package ### to distribution point server ### (Education|Business) percent of the sending has already completed.

  15. Admin console should show update synchronization and summarization progress (was: Simplier Troubleshooting!)

    When doing a Full Software Synchronization or Summarization, it would be great to see some sort of progress bar? For example sometimes update are not appearing on the servers, then we have to click those two, but no idea the progress etc. Also make it easier to troubleshoot issues via the console without having to siff through endless log files and no idea which log files you supposed to look at.
