  1. Bug with SW Center custom client interface settings

    When there have been previous customizations in 1710 or earlier in Administration->Client Settings->Default Settings->SW Center and there has been custom logo or other customizations, after the upgrade to 1802 as now the Custom Settings are moved to a new Windows Form and it Fails to load with unhandled exception System.IO.InvalidDataException: Invalid format in settings xml.

    This has happened for 2 Environments for us so far, upgrading from 1710 to 1802. However, we had no issue with the upgrade of a fresh Environment from 1702 to 1802.

  2. Citrix layered non persistent vdi client support

    We have been testing the new Citrix App Layering on non-persistent VDI machines. Basically a layered VDI. So the OS is in one layer and then each application could be in a layer and then the user has their own layer. Everytime a person logs out they release the VM and when they log in they get a different one with all their layers added.
    What we have seen is that this throws the CM Client completely out of whack. To the point that on one machine SCCM had one SMSGUID, WMI on the machine had a different SMSGUID, andā€¦

  3. Make Peer Caching retry times configurable

    Simply make the timeout or retry a configurable item. The retries are killing us because we have power mgmt policies that enforce power or sleep states. This means peers will not be on. We should be able to configure peer cache to override any retry and hit the DP instantly.

  4. Enable Windows 10 Developer Mode

    With Windows 10, there is an optional feature for Developer Mode. Enabling Developer mode on a Windows 10 workstation managed by SCCM fails with the warning "Advanced development features could not be located in Windows Update". I would ask that SCCM be able to manage Windows 10 optional features such as developer mode and not default to Windows Update.

    Start - Settings - System - Apps and Features - Manage Optional Features - Add Feature

  5. Add Windows 10 "Version" to the default HINV classes

    The version number of Windows 10 are used by administrators to manage their Windows 10 assets.

    The ReleaseID registry key is the version number.
    If this is added to the HINV list of default classes this will allow for administrators to retrieve this information!

    This is located in: HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
    ReleaseID

    This will help administrators differentiate what version of Windows 10 they have install and also support patch management.

  6. Inventory FilePrivatePart in Software Inventory

    In multiple scenario we require to inventory a specific file version using Software Inventory to identify potential threats for instance.
    The file version information reported in the Explorer is different than what we actually inventory with SCCM. Detailled explanation is given here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askpfeplat/2014/12/07/how-to-correctly-check-file-versions-with-powershell/ or https://rohnspowershellblog.wordpress.com/2013/12/16/getting-accurate-file-versions/.
    Great improvement would be to inventory FilePrivatePart as part of the software inventory as well

  8. Customize restart pop-up with customized branding like text/message, logo and additional options for end user with extending-options.

    Customize restart pop-up with customized branding like text/message, logo and additional options for end user with extending-options. Would love to see two options when doing a "restart" from the console. One that is quick where it uses predefined message and settings, something generic. And one that is restart advanced where you can customize the message and the time-extending settings.

  9. SCCM disabling BITS throttling policy when client on internet

    We started to use IBCM and realized our policies configuring BITS speed during business hours to protect our internal network are still applied even the client is on Internet. Can this be removed or at least can you add an option to disable the speed limitation when on internet? Thank you

  11. Client Settings Priority - Set value using text input

    My Company has almost 30 client setting profiles. I would like to see the ability of using a text entry box to set the priority of the client settings instead of using the "increase" and "decrease" mouse clicks. When creating a new client settings, it takes too many mouse clicks to get it to the correct priority.

  13. Priority system simplified

    Instead of having to right click and each time choose between increase or decrease priority (really boring) why not simply have the choice to indicate the priority we want (like a text box) and let SCCM compute behind the whole priority system to still be compliant

  14. Embed the ConfigMgr client components / Intune components in Windows 10

    Embed the ConfigMgr client components / Intune components in Windows 10 to provide the ability and capability of allowing ConfigMgr to also act and become Intune as well. With the Client components/Agents embedded in the desktop OS, the idea is this would allow for enrollment of desktop devices and enrollment of mobile devices providing the same or similar method for enabling management for both desktop and mobile devices. The ConfigMgr/Intune client agent can only be woken up after the installation of a Configuration Manager site is installed in an Active Directory environment. This would ease and simplify client deployment andā€¦

  15. Ability to make some collections as non-deployable

    Ability to make some collections as non-deployable

    In many organizations we deal with, some clients are scared to deploy the SCCM agent to servers such as domain controllers.

    It would be awesome to be able to mark collections, or perhaps records as "non-deployable" - so there is no chance of deploying any application, program, updates etc to the record - only be able to report on it.

  16. Identical to the anti-malware policy, configure DirectAccess clients to have the option to download security updates/fixes from Microsoft.

    Identical to the anti-malware policy, configure DirectAccess clients to have the option to download security updates/fixes from Microsoft. This will remove the need to have a cloud DP or CMG be configured just to have the DA clients be updated with security fixes/patches. If this can be tagged against a boundary group or collection that will be great!

  18. Customize reboot window for Feature Update different from Software Update

    It would be interesting to have a reboot message custom for the feature update different from the patch (software update), with different colors and message, so that users recognize the message and understand that you are installing the system update operational and it will take a little longer to install.

  19. Client Proxy / Network Tab CMG

    With the addition in 1902 to be able to add a CMG to a boundary group, it would be nice to also have the client proxy settings from the Network tab to work when a device is on the Intranet but connected to the CMG. From testing it appears this configuration is only used when the client is on from Internet. But for customer's that want to use CMG for Slow Link Remote Offices they may also have a Proxy they have to connect through.

    Also would be nice if you could specify the Proxy setting with the client installā€¦

  20. Computer Restart policy needs more granularity

    Currently running SCCM CB 1806. I would love to see more policy settings for Computer Restart. As of today, we only have a "temporary notification" and a "permanent notification". Below would be nice to have:


    1. Set a time on how long the "temporary notification" displays for the user. The current display disappears way to fast and is not very beneficial to the end user unless they are literally staring at the systray.


    2. Customize the wording for the Restarts


    3. Allow us to enable/disable the Hide or Close button on either the "temporary" or "permanent" notifications


    4. Write to the scnotification log orā€¦
