  1. Cloud Management: Replacing accidentally deleted Client App

    We recently had a scenario where someone at customer end deleted the Client/Native App from Azure AD stopping Azure AD Token Authentication from working. Clients were not on VPN and no PKI Certificates for Authentication.
    It seems like there is an unsupported way to manually edit SQL DB to re-import a new Client App, but it would be nice to have a supported option with so much CMG adoption lately and the dependency it creates for remote management.

  2. Azure Stack Support

    As MEMCM supports a number of virtualized environment namely Hyper-V, it would be ideal if support is extended to Azure Stack Infrastructure.

  3. Please make inbox/outbox system webservice based instead of SMB based

    It would be lovely to not rely on SMB for inbox and outbox operations since these are very fragile in high latency environments. Changing this to a webservice would be so much like year 2020 technology.

  4. Specify end date for DP Maintenance Mode

    When enabling Maintenance Mode on a DP it would be handy to specify a "end date" for it to automatically come out of MM on.

    In addition, if there was a way to put a comment when setting MM to record why it was set.

  5. Option to put SCOM Agent into maintenance mode when DP is put into maintenance from ConfigMgr

    It would be nice to have a checkbox like we have for deployments to pause SCOM agent on DPs when setting them to maintenance mode.

    Technically, all DP configurations are done by DistMgr, so it should be possible to update it with re-used code from the client functionality.

  6. MBAM consoles and SQL HA

    During the BitLocker user portals setup, the database server name is supplied which the portals use to connect to for key recovery. BitLocker portals do not have a fallback mechanism. If you have an SQL AO configuration, you need to install a second portal so you can still use the recovery functionality bur you also need to notify every admin user to switch...Not really convenient.

  7. Stop DP upgrade when DP is in maintenance

    Maintenance mode for Distribution Points is an awesome feature. Thank you for implementing it!
    It significantly reduces amount of "false positive" errors and makes monitoring significantly easier.
    Please also include DP upgrades in list of tasks that are suspended when DP is in Maintenance mode.
    Currently (v 2006), as also noted in documentation, Distribution Manager continues trying to upgrade DPs that are in Maintenance mode, which generates error messages that make monitoring more difficult.
    Our remote sites occasionally go offline for extended periods of time, so this would reduce number of errors support engineers need to review.
    Due to pandemic…

  8. Standardize releases of SCCM Versions to twice a year instead of current frequency.

    Standardize releases of SCCM Versions to twice a year instead of the current frequency of three times a year 2002, 2006 and 2010 and so on.

    Please review the pattern of windows feature releases and a clear timeline on supportability for SCCM.

    Please give a road map of supportability whether or not the customer has moved to co-management or not

    SCCM Client Version supportability in line with Server Version. All these three may be clearly documented please.

  9. Simplify configmgr server certificate management

    Currently it is rather cumbersome to use PKI-issued certificates in many places of ConfigMgr infrastructure (especially DPs), and aoutomate them. ConfigMgr acts as a CA and issues its own certs without any admin control - maybe letting us set it up as a subordinate (to the one probably existing in many companies) CA would solve the issue? Any other ideas?

  10. Bring back the option to change the retention period

    Bring back the option to change the retention period. The retention days will revert back to the default of 1095. We are not aware of separating a retention date for a cloned CAS database from the actual production CAS database.

  11. Create new audit status message whenever a status message gets deleted.

    Whenever a user deletes a status message, there is no record of this within SCCM (SMSProv.log file gets overwritten fairly quickly). I would like to see a new audit status message get created, whenever a status message gets deleted (showing who deleted the status message). This will leave some sort of trace whenever someone deletes a status message.

  12. Reduce the number delta mismatch BADMIFS Generated

    We get about 1000 deltamismatch BADMIFs generated each day.

    Here is the case of sccm client Inventoryagent.log says successfully sent but the ccmessaging.log shows the upload failed.
    Why can’t the client inventory agent act on the status back from ccmmessaginglog and if the upload of the inventory fails, don’t increment the delta number.
    This would greatly reduce the number of deltamismatch files generated each day and improvement keeping the inventory up to date without having to force a full inventory sync for this case.

    Here are the details:

    Dataldr.log for computer: CHOSIJ1-L2

    Thread: 6108 will use GUID GUID:c28fa179-d722-4692-be69-a71f5a81e75c SMSINVENTORY…

  14. raise base .NET Framwork of CM from 4.0 to 4.6.x

    currently all file system operations only accept filepaths with maximum length of 256 chars which is related to the used .NET Framework within CM.
    Starting with .NET 4.6 this limitation is now raised to 32.767 chars which is very usueful if you for eample manage driver and driver packs, applications and so on per script and file systems within a domain network. (Servernames FQDN could be longer than 8 chars in our case at minumum 30 chars)

  15. Maintenance Mode Duration

    Can we please get the same options that exist in SCOM? It would be very helpful if we could set the duration for maintenance mode. See Attached.

  16. Allow Site system proxy to be configured as Winhttp proxy when we enable PullDP to fetch the content from CDP

    Hello, When we try to configure the PullDP to use CDP as Source, the pullDP only uses the proxy configured on Winhttp service, neither the proxy configured in site system property or the Configmgr control panel applet are used. Seems at moment the admin has to configure Winhttp proxy manually to allow the pullDP to get the content from CDP, whereas this should be handled by sccm, whenever the Pulldp is being enabled in the console, the proxy configured on the Site system props has to be applied in the winhttp service on the system context as well.

  17. MBAM integration: Support non-HTTPS infrastructures

    At present time (MECM 2002) integrated MBAM support is only available for infrastructures in HTTPS mode (a.k.a. Native Mode).
    Since most of the customers most likely operate their SCCM/MECM in HTTP mode, we request the support of integrated MBAM in HTTP mode (a.k.a. Mixed Mode)

  18. Migration Wizard filter by security scope

    The migration wizard needs several improvements:
    Allow for filtering by source hierarchy security scope - We use security scopes for all RBA settings, but when importing objects I have to assign the same scope to all objects which is impractical when importing thousands of objects. There is no practical way to only select items with the same scope from within the wizard either as scope isn't displayed.

    Other improvements:
    Allow for resize of the wizard
    Allow for filtering of objects
    Allow for multi-select of objects in the available objects pane (shift-select)

  20. Use IIS for RestfulAPI Admin Service

    Use an IIS web application to handle the Admin service queries and calls instead of using the SCCMProviderGraph.exe. This would allow better control of the Admin service and make it more consistent with the other CM services. This would also allow the admin service to handle more queries and allow it to be a webservice that can be used by endpoints for querying live data from CM. Right now the Admin Service cannot handle thousands of connections to it.
