  1. Azure AD Group Discovery - Discover Intune Enrolled Devices

    Today in the Modern workplace of Autopilot provisioning; Organizations decide to keep everything on Azure Active Directory (Device Identity and User identity) with co-management capabilities.

    Currently Azure AD Group Discovery does support to discover only cloud based resources.. But to enable Advanced deployment targeting; it would be better to enable these discovery methods.

    (i) Able to discover Hybrid Users as well not only for Cloud Users
    (ii) Able to discover AAD Joined devices through Device Discovery especially Intune and Autopilot enrolled.

    Through this; organizations will be able to create SCCM Deployments with Device and User Group Membership through Advanced customizedā€¦

  2. Exclude Virtual Cluster from System Discovery

    This request ( https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8414520-exclude-virtual-cluster-and-ou-from-discovery ) was not fully completed, but it was marked as complete. People have been commenting that it is NOT done.

    We appreciate the addition of OU exclusion, but Virtual Cluster exclusion is also a big part of what we need!

    I believe most of us don't want to have to pile up our cluster objects into a junk OU just to exclude them. My AD is organized such that it makes far more sense to see these objects sitting with the real computer objects.

    Please review the request for Virtual Cluster exclusion as a separate requestā€¦

  4. Allow clients to update their own IP address into SCCM

    With many of our users working flexibly via VPN, hopping between sites etc. They may end up connecting back to our network multiple times per day and end up changing IP address frequently.

    DNS doesn't always update as quickly as we would like and therefore often when we try to perform client actions, DNS does not reflect the current IP address and client actions then fail.

    Could there be an option to allow a client to directly update SCCM with the client IP address to avoid delays in DNS catching up with current IP address?

  5. Add Boundary intelligence

    It would be helpful to know if SCCM sees a machine or group of machines that do not belong to any boundary and show that result in the console or some sort of dashboard and be able to action on that. There does not seem to be any development on this as Boundary and Boundary groups seems to be static concepts with no intelligence for the administrator to leverage. Obviously there would still be some interaction from the administrators but perhaps some network intelligence concepts from appliances like the Citrix NetScaler would be helpful.

  6. Run Software Inventory in a seperate thread

    We often see systems where Hardware Inventory and Heartbeat are lagging because they are waiting for Software Inventory to finish.

  7. Configure Active Directory Discovery Containers

    I would like to see some changes in the way containers are processed during discovery.

    1) I would like the ability to change the order and/or prioritize which containers are searched first. We have multiple forests, and it would be good to be able to set some to run before others.

    2) I would like to be able to establish multiple schedules for AD Discovery so that some containers can be run more frequently than others.

    3) I would like to be able to right click on a container and manually run discovery on that container only.
    4) Allow theā€¦

  8. Network Discovery Subnets - Import using CSV

    new feature request. It's too late for me, but I'm about to add 200+ subnets with masks to Network discovery. There should be a way to do a bulk import here. (maybe there is, but I haven't been able to find one)

  9. Include current IP address in SMS_CollectionMemberClientBaselineStatus

    The IP address information that is accessible for queries and reporting is often out-of-date especially with remote and VPN clients. It's more useful to know what an online client's IP address is now rather than what it was at various points in the past.

    It would be useful if the current IP address and current subnet (based on subnet mask) was included in SMSCollectionMemberClientBaselineStatus and vCollectionMemberClientBaselineStatus as part of Client Online Status.

    This data appears to be available in BGBResStatus, and since that table is already being used in vCollectionMemberClientBaselineStatus, both the IP address and subnetā€¦

  10. Forrest Discovery scanning for IP subnets should be dynamic within SCCM. Defined susbnets that change in AD, do not update and showt this.

    Defined susbnets that change in AD, do not update and showt the new data. Description or the exacts of a defined ip range or ip subnet that are changed in AD, do not show up in SCCM. While re-using or moving IP subnets is not a great idea, it does happen and sometimes happen often.

  11. Allow exclusions by Active Directory group for system discovery

    Currently, you can exclude discovery of machines by OU. While great, some systems can not be organized easily into one or a few OUs.

    Requesting a feature be added to allow the same functionality but exclude systems from system discovery that are in a specific Active Directory group.

  12. Add option to exclude containers/OUs from Group Discovery

    Hereā€™s the problem. Systems exist in the Domain Computers group and other groups, so any recursive discovery of groups for the domain will put the partial system discovery back in the system.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/servers/deploy/configure/configure-discovery-methods#bkmk_config-adsd
    Starting in version 1806, select subcontainers (and/or OUs?) to exclude from this recursive search. This option helps to reduce the number of discovered objects. Select Add to choose the containers under the above path. In the Select New Container dialog box, select a child container to exclude. Select OK to close the Select New Container dialog box.

    The list of Active Directory containers in the Activeā€¦

  13. use Reliability Monitor/SystemStabilityIndex in inventory, client health and cmpivot

    System Reliability Monitor is the integrated Windows 10 Troubleshooting tool which is a filter to the eventlog, looking at performance and stability related information
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/technet-magazine/dd362384(v=msdn.10)
    For example you can find out since you installed a driver or app the system gets unstable

    this data should be used in #configmgr client health, inventory and cmpivot

    There is an number, the SystemStabilityIndex

    get-wmiobject Win32_ReliabilityStabilityMetrics -property "SystemStabilityIndex" | select-object -first 1 SystemStabilityIndex

    Based on that we could create collections of good and bad performing machines or query cmpivot

  14. Create ddr even if system discovery cannot ping/nslookup device

    Create ddr even if system discovery cannot ping/nslookup device. Primary server is behind firewall due to network decision, therefore system discovery fails. Checkbox that will create DDR without successful nslookup or ping would allow us to discover devices.

  15. Exclude certain operating systems from discovery

    It would be great if we could exclude certain OS's from discovery. I have over 5500 machines in my DB that I couldn't care less about but they reside in an OU where I have machines I do care about.

  17. Add firmware property to Win32_Diskdrive in hardware inventory

    We have had a number of cases where old firmware versions of SSD drives caused computer failures - so being able to report on these is important.
    OOTB the Win32_DiskDrive class is available but doesn't include the firmware property.
    This means you need to add a custom class to enable discovery of this data.
    Can we extend the existing class to have the firmware able to be enabled without any customization?
    More info on an unsupported way to achieve the same result: https://timmyit.com/2017/03/13/hardware-inventory-disk-name-and-firmware/

  18. Add Windows Build Subversion "BUILDEXT" collection for Windows Server 2016

    The previous request that was suggested and implemented was completed only for Windows 10, it is desired that the new system discovery "BuildExt" be extended to return the same information that it does currently in 1802 for Windows 10 for Windows Server 2016 as well.

    Add Windows Build Subversion "UBR" collection to the default HINV classes
    The UBR registry key is responsible for displaying the subversion of a Windows Server 2016 or Windows 10 build to a patch administrator or end-user. For example 14393. where is the UBR string. If this is added to the HINV list of default classesā€¦

  19. AD System Discovery - Skip the DNS Check Please!

    Please add a check box which would enable me to have the DNS check skipped during computer system discovery. There are situations when a system may not resolve in DNS from the CM server, however I would still like to have the attribute data (LastLogon, pwdLastSet, etc) from Active Directory updated by the discovery process regardless of the DNS check. Currently these values are not updated if the system is not found.
