  1. GetCacheInfo Additional information exposed

    GetCacheInfo Additional information exposed

    Can you please have the data available in WMI or ComObject include additional fields.
    Currently:
    ContentId
    ContentVersion
    Location
    LastReferenceTime
    ReferenceCount
    ContentSize
    CacheElementId

    Could you add information from the Package Fields in the Console:
    PackageName
    *PackageVersion
    PackageLanguage
    PackageDescription

    I'd like all of them, but I really need PackageVersion for a project I'm working on.

  2. LEDBAT support for CMG/CloudDP

    It would be nice to make the new LEDBAT DP functionality also available for CMGs or Cloud DPs.

  3. Have smsdpmon also query the primary for assigned software when performing content validation

    Smsdpmon.exe appears to only use the local SCCMDP class for the list of content to validate. We have experienced a few cases where the SCCMDP content list does not match what is assigned at the site level. For complete validation can it also query the primary server for the assigned content and then flagged the differences as well???

  5. Keep Previous Version of Content available while Distributing

    Currently, when content for an OS Image, Package, Application, etc is being updated, that object is unavailable until the content update completes. This means that content updates for large items must be timed very carefully, especially when sending to remote sites.

    It would be amazing if a Distribution Point could keep the previous version of the item available while the content is updating, then switch to the new content and delete the old after it's completed.

  6. Package (compress) content before send to client

    A lot of applications use hundreds, maybe thousands of files (e.g. Paint shop pro, oracle client, Autocad) of just a few KB / MB.

    For those applications sometimes you have to wait a long time before the application package is transfered to the client.

    Becouse of those large number of small files, there is not a large TCP window size, therefore the transfer could take longer than necessary.

    i would like to see a feature that packages on a DP are "packaged" (zip, rar or whatsoever) in larger blocks (e.g. 100MB split files) before any client will received it

  8. Redistributing Failed Content

    In the Content Status node of the Monitoring workspace, add an option to allow all failed content to be redeployed without having to go into each package/application and selecting redeploy. When a site has numerous packages that have failed to deploy, having the option to easily redeploy all of the failed content (or specific packages) at the same time would very useful.

  9. SCCM: Allow SCCM to ignore files or folders, especially .git?

    I'd like to be able to tell SCCM to ignore a .git folder in the content folder for a specific (or all) application. This would allow our group to use Git to manage changes to our application installers but not have SCCM pick up the Git database files, etc.

  11. Configure Rate Limits for different days

    Currently rate limits only allow you to configure this for a 24 hour period.

    Consider expanding this to allow a schedule based on the day of the week.

    This would allow for remote sites to use 100% of their bandwidth during the entire weekend, but a limited amount during business hours.

  12. AD Forest Discovery: More information for subnets

    When doing an AD Forest Sync with subnet import enabled. Could SCCM also import the subnet location and description attributes so when looking at boundaries in the console we have more detailed information?

  13. Fix out of sync content on the Distribution Point

    At times, the distribution point will complain that there is a mismatch between the package list on the file system and the package list in WMI.

    The warning presented is as:

    Failed to retrieve the package list on the distribution point.
    Or the package list in the content library doesn't match the one in WMI. Review smsdpmon.log for more information about this failure.

    See attached error dialog.

    The fix is to manually force the WMI list to match the content lib list.

    I'm unsure what causes them to become mismatched, but it would be nice if MS could either fix…

  15. An option to configure a DP such that it only downloads the distributed content from the site when the first client requests for it.

    An option to configure a DP such that it only downloads the distributed content from the site when the first client requests for it. This will help manage DP disk space efficiently as most of the content never gets used at a remote site but we do not know what's really needed in advance. With semi annual channels the content problem is getting worse each day.

    Below is the config manager thread I had opened and an expert asked me to submit a request here.

  17. Improve Content Replication

    Content Replication from Site to DPs should be a frustration free Process or SCCM Admins. Unfortunately, I know no customer without smaller or bigger issues in this area.
    Here is an uncomplete list of some issues I´ve noticed:
    • Content Eval - Scheduled Task lost
    o SCCM does not check if the schedule task got lost/deleted
    o Suggested Solution: SCCM should verify the Scheduled Task on Service Startup
    • Content Eval - Hash mismatch/Eval fails for package
    o When content Eval fails for a package, the admin must manually redistribute it / take care of the error
    o There should…

  18. Active Driectory: LAPS and BitLocker

    It would be nice if SCCM could pull the LAPS passwords into a table. And while we are at it the BitLocker recovery key. These are the 2 most important things to have if an AD computer account were to get deleted for some reason. We could then limit access to the data and write reports for it. I'm assuming that the information would get updated as part of some AD info sync process. The data would need to be non-volatile in case the AD account is deleted at least the information would be in the SCCM database. Maybe also…

  19. Add an option to update only Install or Uninstall content of a deployment type

    It is great that you can now provide a separate Install/uninstall content location for a deployment type of an application. This is very useful for large applications.

    However, there is one major limitation: You cannot update just uninstall (or install) content. If you have updated your uninstall script, the current Update content task will try to update both install/uninstall content.

    Even though you haven't changed anything in your install content, it will takes ages for large applications, before SCCM understands that install content has not been modified.

    It would be so much faster if you could just initiate "Update uninstall"…

  20. Add a status of 'Skipped, prestaged content mode' for content distribution. Currently this appears as 'in-progress'.

    Add a status of 'Skipped, prestaged content mode' or 'waiting, maintenance mode' for content distribution. Distribution points in prestaged mode are skipped and not processed, yet the status states 'in-progress'.
