  1. Enable BranchCache on Task Sequence - Download On Demand Content

    For a Task Sequence, any content you have referenced and as long as you have "Download All Content Before Starting" set on the Deployment, it will download the Content into the CCMCache using BranchCache. However, we don't want to "Download all Content before Starting" in several situations, and in those cases, The Task Sequence doesn't leverage BranchCache at all for the download, which is VERY Bad.

    Please enable the ability for a Task Sequence to leverage BranchCache during an active Task Sequence when it downloads content during the Task Sequence.

    Priority 1, Make this work in Full OS

  3. "IsVirtual" builtin task sequence variable

  4. OSD - Create Variable to control creation of DisableCMDRequest.TAG in Setup Windows & ConfigMgr Step

    During OSD, specifically the Setup Windows & Configuration Manager Step, the step creates the file DisableCMDRequest.TAG right before rebooting from WinPE into the Full OS

    This disables the F10 prompt during the Windows Setup.

    Could you allow us to change this behavior via TS variable?
    Example: SMTSTDisableCMDRequest = False

    [Bonus] Then also automatically set the it to false if TSDebugMode = True

    This would be helpful for troubleshooting Windows Errors during Setup before the TS kicks back in after setup. (SetupComplete.cmd runs)

    Thanks for your suggestion. Updating status to noted – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each value.

    Can you elaborate with some examples of why this would be needed?

    We already have the task sequence debugger and comprehensive logging. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/osd/deploy-use/debug-task-sequence

    Also, Windows developed SetupDiag which can be run from the task sequence or used on setup.exe completion https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/upgrade/setupdiag

  5. Support Cloud Imaging without internal MP

    Please add support for cloud imaging without a local MP, meaning get all content for OSD, including policies from the CMG.

  6. Interactive "Run Powershell Script"

    When you use the "Run Powershell Script" step (Enter a PowerShell script in my case), it always adds "-noninteractive".
    This is problematic when trying to show an interactive GUI.
    Workaround is to have the ps1-file in a package and run it from a "Run Command Line" step.

  7. Add ability to specify a Package AND use Add Script in a Task Sequence

    Currently, when using the Run PowerShell Script step, you can specify a package and a script in that package, or you can use the entry box and enter custom powershell code there. It would be great to be able to specify package source AND use the custom code entry together. An example:

    Run Command Line with a Package Source selected:

    Powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass Import-StartLayout -LayoutPath .\StartMenu.bin -MountPath C:\

    Run PowerShell Script with Package selected:

    Import-StartLayout -LayoutPath .\StartMenu.bin -MountPath C:\

    To do this today using Run PowerShell Script, I would have to create a PS1 file in my Package source andā€¦

  8. Integrate SCCM OSD task sequence domain-join process with CyberArk secure password management.

    Integrate SCCM OSD task sequence domain-join process with CyberArk secure password management. The task to use the domain-join process does not have the capability of going to the CyberArk API and retrieving an encrypted password (dynamic) during each OSD deployment.

  9. Make ConfigMgr work with Autopilot and Enrollment Status Page (ESP)

    When deploying a device using Autopilot, the Enrollment Status Page (ESP) is used to prevent access to the desktop until the device provisioning tasks are complete. But ConfigMgr doesn't integrate with the ESP, so there's no way to wait for packages, apps, or task sequences - the user doesn't know when the process is done. Add that integration.

  10. Allow a local user (admin or not an admin) to be added in a Task Sequence

    It is possible to *** a local user/group to a local machine during OSD using the net command or PowerShell but it is impossible to do this so that the password is encrypted. PowerShell requires the key so it has to be made on the same machine but that's not always possible. Net command requires the password in plain text, also not desirable.

  12. Windows 10 Start Menu Designer for SCCM

    This is more of a config management item. Each release of Win 10 comes with different ways to create and deploy start menus it seems. This is very frustrating and time consuming. It would be awesome if we could have a drag and drop menu emulator and editor to be used in designing, testing, and deploying start menus built into the SCCM console. Integration with apps and packages would be optimal. A desktop layout designer would also go well with this. Give us the ability to manage shortcuts and whatnot in a more intuitive manner that doesn't require piecemeal GPOā€¦

  13. Mouse Support during OSD after WinPE stage

    During OSD in Windows 10, the Mouse gets suppressed and you can't see it after the "Setup Windows & ConfigMgr Step" until the end of the TS. Many of us have cheated by adding a registry value in the offline OS

    https://garytown.com/enable-mouse-support-in-win10-osd-during-state-restore

    MS has even blogged about it:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/mem/configmgr/no-mouse-cursor-during-osd-task-sequence

    My Request is... Build this into the Setup Windows & ConfigMgr step.
    In that step, you're already mounting the offline registry, just add that value while you're in there. Perhaps make it controlled via a checkbox on the step or variable.

    I see on your page you recommend undoing the changeā€¦

  14. Apply Configuration Baseline/item during OSD

    When trying to move away from Group Policies to Configuration times/baselines and in every other scenario as well, add a step in Task Sequence to evaluate and remediate select Configuration items/baselines. Then we can select which one of the Configuration Items/baselines should be applied during OSD so the settings are present when the user logs on for the first time

  16. Task sequence deployment to run when no user is logged on.

    It would be great to have the same user experience conditions available in Application deployments for Task Sequence deployments. That way we could deploy required in-place upgrades of Win10 that will install once the user logs off and not rely on the user to start the Available deployment themselves.

  17. Provide end users with Estimated upgrade times

    now with many more end users workign remotely, there are far more variables involved that can effect how long it takes to perform an in place upgrade.
    it would be nice if there was something built in, that could basically speed test against the target sccm DP to be used, combine that with the size of the install package/task sequence references, and provide them a realistic guestimate on how long the upgrade may actually take.

  18. ipv6 relay encapsulation support

    This will probably be very low prio for most people, but here goes. when SCCM PXE is done in an IPv6 network, where DHCP is handled over a dhcp relay, PXE boot may fail with error "invalid packet structure".
    cause analysis led to the following statement:

    "Your relay agent is encapsulating the original DHCPv6 packet in a relay-forward message (12). This is currently not supported by the SCCM PXE server. The SCCM PXE server currently only supports bare forwarded DHCPv6 packets.

    DHCPv6 message 12 is a quite tricky for the current SCCM PXE server because you can have nested message12s."

  19. Add LayeredDriver (keyboard driver) settings in OSD

    I would like to add setting of LayeredDriver (106/109 key, etc.) during OSD (OS deployment).
    These settings are "very important topics" for OSD guys in Japan and Korea.
    Without this setting, the keyboard will become an English keyboard.

  20. Task Sequence Step to Add Info to SMSTS.log

    I'd love to see a built-in step to add information to the SMSTS.log. Basically just a single-line text field that would parse TSVariables just like any other step that has text fields.

    This would allow:
    1. Easy way to dump a specific TS variable value at a specific point in time to the log for troubleshooting.
    2. A potentially easier way to search the SMSTS.log file for a specific point in the task sequence. While you can search for task name, there are many entries that contain the task name - you could make the content of the step uniqueā€¦
