  1. Add an Alert that shows the state of the CMG Connection Point

    Add an Alert that shows the state of the CMG Connection Point.

    Currently, I have no automated way to tell if the CMG is healthy unless I go into the console and run the Connection analyzer.

    I'd like to see a built-in alert I can configure to notify me if the CMG service is in a non-Ready state, the Connection Point is "disconnected" or the number of "Clients online from CMG" is below a specific threshold.

  2. Add SQL Server configuration recommendations to Management Insights

    Based on a database analysis, give recommendations for SQL Server settings that are relevant for the ConfigMgr performance. Examples: MDOP, memory configuration, compatibility level (since 110 is obviously sometimes better than higher levels), ad hoc workloads.

  4. Translate IDs in Support Center logs

    When viewing the logs using the log viewer in the Support Centre, it shows CIs with their IDs. When you're troubleshooting something, this can be really frustrating as you have to manually translate the IDs when trying to identify things.

    Please add the ability to automatically translate the IDs in logs for CIs into their display names to improve their readability.

  5. MDT 2013 - Linked Deployment Share issue with replace mode and Office updates

    Hi, I use MDT since many years (starting with MDT 2010). I have a setup since 5 years that i working very fine where I have a "master server" where I test my deployments, when everything is working fine I synchronize data with all my 7other MDT servers using "Linked Deployment Shares" and "Replace the contents of the target deployment chare folders with those selected".

    This method should delete old data (not merge)... And he did it perfectly with all applications, drivers, etc... but I observed it's not totally true with Microsoft Office 2016 (MSI) application !!! I have noā€¦

  6. Create a tool to easily troubbleshoot and report root problems for an application deploiement failing.

    Most of the support desk do not have the needed knowledge to go to all the logs on a client and check why an application is not installed or do not appears in Catalog.
    Is it a policy issue , a Global conditions issue , does a requirement is not met , is a dependencies not installed ?
    Add to this one time to go to log you need ScopeId or CI , or Policy ID , all this make difficult the job for a SD Level 1 or 2
    Results it come too often to Level 3 and Adminā€¦

  8. include Windowsupdate.log in log collection

    Hi,

    We have new option to collect client log from the console. it works quite good.

    But to better troubleshoot frequent WindowsUdpate problems, it would be nice to include windowsupdate.log (after instant generation on w10/w2016+), and eventually CBS.log

    This way we have a better view of the computer state when digging for non installed KB, without asking remote user to send the files.

  9. Add methods to force new GUID generation for Clients

    Duplicate GUIDs are a real pain to deal with. Not everyone in our environment is a CM admin or has access to delete objects from the CM db so we need a way (and i'll suggest multiple) to force a client to regenerate a GUID that doesn't require coordination of activities on the endpoint and in the CM DB to make it happen.

    1 - Allow a registry value to be set that blocks the retrieval of the GUID from CM when missing from the client
    2 - Add a parameter to the RepairClient() WMI Method ... RepairClient can takeā€¦

  10. Provide logging/recording/tracking of what specific clients were removed during the "Delete Inactive Client Discovery Data" maintenance task

    Currently, there doesn't seem to be a way to determine which clients were removed during the "Delete Inactive Client Discovery Data" maintenance task. It reports on the number of inactive clients it removed but not which specific clients it removed.

  11. Show content for updates in Support Center

    Have the ability to select the Updates show in the content of a workstation and the ability to click install and to see the error if it reports back an error.

    This can currently be done for Application content but cannot be done for Updates.

    To try to get this capability just for Updates for troubleshooting/support for workstations. You have to leverage ReCast- Right Click Tools and leverage the Remote Software Center to kick off updates for install for workstations that you are troubleshooting.

    We are working on adding updates capability into Support Center for future releases. In the latest Technical Previews, we now display information about maintenance windows and all the updates installed on the system.

    We plan to further extend this to provide more in-depth information about deployed updates like we have for applications.

    Stay tuned for more on this in upcoming technical previews.

  12. Better information in the Client health dashboard

    Include reasons for why something is showing as a failure or success in the client health dashboard.

    Include common fixes for each problem.

    Better documentation would also fix this problem.

  13. Trigger log collection from task sequence either automatically or via client action

    The new option in the console for Client diagnostics - Collect Log files, need to be able to trigger option from the client running a task sequence. The reason for this is when a task sequence logic encounters a error and you want to auto capture the logs, this client action will be key to automating the log captures. Also for Windows 10 Servicing where the machine runs on the Internet and capturing the logs works great over the CMG, but again just want to automate the log capture than rather manually capturing the logs.

  15. New Components should also be affected by the Archive RegKeys

    Newer Components like

    ā€‹- BusinessAppProcessWorkerā€‹
    - SMSCloudConnectionSTSWorkerā€‹
    - SMSDataEngineā€‹
    - SMS
    PhasedDeploymentā€‹
    - WsfbSyncWorker

    should also be affected by the Archive RegKeys:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Tracing\ArchiveEnabled
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Tracing\ArchivePath

    Currently the old Logfile Versions are saved at <InstallDIR>\Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs\

  16. Tool to find out what cause SCCM Client installation/Communication failure on Workstations

    In our environment SCCM Server installs client on discovered resource but they failed to install due to machine specific issue, could you prepare a tool which we can give it to floor support technician to run on machine which have SCCM Client issue or Installation failure, the tool should check for all prerequisites for client install also firewall issues like (WMI and File and Print sharing not allowed ) it should the issue with which it becomes easy to fix the underlying problem and get the sccm client successfully deployed

  17. Support Center Advanced Log File Viewer Advanced Filtering

    It would be great if in the new Suppert Center Advanced Log File Viewer, there would be an option for Advanced Filters, when opening a log file, the filters load automatically and we dont need to load them manually everytime we open a log.
    Same as with the other buttons, that can be activated and deactivated.

  18. Management Point Admin. It would be great to have a Management Point folder under Administration, with reports and MP health checks.

    We recently added a new MP to a trusted domain, and modified the boundaries, so client on that domain would only connect to that MP. We have no way of checking if this is working. A simple list of clients connected to which MP would be super helpful. We would be able to tell from a list which domains these clients are on and if they are connected to the correct MP. Also health info of the MPs, trolling through logs ain't fun. A quick easy look at MP health status to tell if something needs investigating.

  19. Ensure Tables v_ClientDownloadHistoryDP_BG and table ClientDownloadHistory have correct start time data with client.

    Currently the tables vClientDownloadHistoryDPBG and table ClientDownloadHistory have correct start time data with client. It does not match when a client downloads a package either from the DP our cloud DP and it's very hard to match the data. As per the escalation engineer, this is by design?
