  1. Change hard coded limit for HW inventory mif files.

    There is a hard limit of 50 MBs for Hardware inventory set within the data loader for MIF file. If you enabled AI classes to collect more data by SCCM, it is not unusual for these computers to hit this hard-coded limit. This causes an endless loop of resyncs being performed by SCCM clients. the resync then consumes network bandwidth and processing time on the client/MP/etc. It is not until it hit the Data loader that these MIF files are rejected and ultimately a resync occurs to start the whole process over. The hard code limes should be increased to…

    • max mif size

      The Max Mif Size should be increased from 5MB to a default of 50 MB. We know that the average size is now more than default of 5 MB. Admin needs to increase it in order to ensure up-to-date inventory within SCCM.

        • Improve PC lifecycle management feature

          ConfigMgr should have better PC lifecycle management.

          E.g. following features:
          - Recognize potential devices that are removed from the network e.g. devices that are removed/disabled from AD, not active within ConfigMgr
          - When removing a device from ConfigMgr, the device should be removed also from AD/Intune/CMDB. There should be a way to provide a custom command to remove the device from 3rd party CMDB
          - Create a workflow with multiple conditions and steps with optional approval

          • Add hardware inventory information to Devices view as selectable column

            Make information from hardware inventory a selectable column in the Devices overview list.
            IS-Situation:
            The selectable column list is limited and does not include some very useful information.
            SHOULD-Situation:
            We should be able to select all inventoried fiels as a selectable column.
            Use cases for us would be:
            - Show Operation System "pretty" value (at the moment, there is NT Workstation X.Y, but we want "Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise 1709").
            - Show serial number of the OEM.
            - Show device model of OEM.
            - etc.

            • Add Win32_DeviceGuard WMI Class

              Request to add the Win32_DeviceGuard WMI Class into Configuration Manager Hardware Inventory by default. This is a crucial WMI class that we can query Virtualization Based Security configurations on systems. Right now we have to manually add the class as described in the following blog:

              • Management Insight: Inventories approaching and violating max MIF size

                There's already a UVI for two to increase the default maximum MIF size. Regardless of the size this seems like an easy Management Insight win. Let me know if the existing limit is being violated or if some devices are starting to get close so I can investigate why. Obviously we need to determine which devices are in question.

                • Fix Active Directory Discovery Attribute <Not Set> Bug

                  When an optional AD attribute has been selected for inclusion in AD discovery, if that attribute has a value at time of discovery, it is included in the discovery and reflected as part of the information for the user/computer/group object in CM. If that AD attribute is later cleared (changed to <not set> / NULL value in AD), discovery identifies that the attribute is a NULL value and purposely skips it from the discovery. As such, the user/computer/group object in AD falls out of sync with the AD attributes and continues to report the value even though it has been…

                  • Remove the SMS_Unit qualifier for classes like v_gs_partition, as inventoried from win32_diskpartition

                    Classes like v_gs_partition, as inventoried from win32_diskpartition may use a definition such as SMS_Unit ("KiloBytes") for certain properties.
                    Block size for instance will then be reported as 0 even if there is an value like 512 hence all devices may report incorrectly 0 as block size.
                    Removing the SMS_Unit for all those properties resolves that issue.
                    The same also happens for e.g. win32_volume.

                    • store client boundary IDs in database

                      A client's last reported list of boundaries and boundary groups it was part of should be stored in the database. This will allow for collections and report built around clients within a boundary or boundary group.

                              • Capture Cisco CDP and LLDP packets in SCCM reporting for asset tracking

                                CDP and LLDP packets are generated by network switches and sent to clients to identify which port they are connected to. If the computer is on an enterprise wifi access point, it will capture which access point it is connected to. This data should be captured by SCCM so inventory reports can be run to get a PC's physical location in the network.

                                This data can be captured with Wireshark, but if SCCM could capture these packets it would aid greatly in PC location and network troubleshooting since it tells you which switch and port number the computer is on.

                                • Client Notification – Option to Collect a Full Hardware/Software Inventory

                                  For troubleshooting purposes would like and option to run a full hardware/software inventory on a client under client notification. Because there are cases when you are trying to troubleshoot why HW or SW inventory data is not flowing into the SCCM database and the best way to do that is forcing the client to perform a full inventory and look at the logs. Delta inventories sometimes do not pick up changes on the client.

                                  • Add the ability to add registry keys to the hardware inventory from the console

                                    Add the ability to extend the hardware inventory to include registry keys simply by browsing and selecting the relevant keys, similar to the current functionality for adding WMI objects through the client settings in the console. This would avoid the need to use 3rd party tools such as regkeytomof and hacking the configuration.mof file.

                                    • Add InventoryLog to replication

                                      Add InventoryLog to replication in a hierarchy. This would allow the ability to query the table from the CAS.

                                      • Make configuration.mof changes and restores from backup more robust

                                        Currently, changes to configuration.mof appear to be read in based on the timestamp of the file.

                                        This means that if you restore configuration.mof from a backup, it will not be re-read into the database because the timestamp is older.

                                        Recently I had to force a re-read of a backup of configuration.mof by making a trivial change to a comment in the file so that the timestamp was changed and thus hardware inventory would again run on my clients.

                                        It would seem that perhaps a checksum of the file compared to a file that was read in previously would resolve this…
