  1. Update SDK Documentation about the use of this file FormatMessageCtl.dll

    Update documentation to reflect where this FormatMessageCtl.dll file is. It is documented as being required to work with status messages but no longer seems to appear in the product. Several locations are shown such as in the ssrs install file as well as inetpub but those no longer seem to hold the file.

      • Clarify relationship between SC and SCCM

        List of discrepancies treating CM "Configuration Manager" different from DPM, SCOM, SCORCH, SCSM:
        - The SC Roadmap makes no mention of CM. http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/9/6/59602436-C9C5-48A1-B305-827654B9077B/System_Center_Roadmap_EN_US.pdf
        - All the SC components except for CM appear to be on the same SAC (Semi-Annual Channel) software release train schedule with two releases (1801 and 1807) to date. https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/windowsserver/2018/07/24/system-center-1807-available-now/
        - The Microsoft Docs URL for CM does not include "system-center", whereas the other SC offerings do. e.g. https://docs.microsoft.com/system-center/scom/ vs https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm

        • Small SCCM Hardware VM Recommendations

          I'd like primary site sizing recommendations for small to medium size environments. We have <500 client devices, your recommended specs are way too high.

          • Improved documentation / flowcharts for client activity

            It would be nice to know the process or flow that occurs on the client side. This information is often times needed to explain the technology to management. There would likely need to be different flowcharts for each client function. The following is made up 100% and is not correct in any way and not in the correct format, but illustrates the idea.

            Client wakes up -> Identification Information sent to Primary Site -> Client receives MP list -> Client receives DP list -> Client randomly chooses MP and requests machine policy -> policy is compared to what has beenā€¦

            • SDK Support for BoundaryGroupCache

              Introduce broad support/documentation for BoundaryGroupCache values in Root\CCM\LocationServices to be read programatically and leveraged in Compliance Settings and other areas for Location based configurations. Example: configuration of BITS Throttling settings based on current Boundary Group. Setting up Collections / Custom Client Settings is not performance efficient.
