  2. Searching in Software Updates filter by OS of Client Needing Update

    When doing a search in Software Updates, when filtering the search it would be excellent if one of the filter criteria were the ability to filter by the OS of the Client needing an update. I'm NOT speaking of the free text search of the OS'es the patch applies to, but rather the ability to look at the OS of the machines that need the patch and filter out the machines which are an OS we do not patch with SCCM. We only patch Client Os here and not servers Via SCCM. Therefore I'd like to be able to dropā€¦

  3. replace all local winsxs folders for centreal sccm winsxs folder and save on drive space and complex compatability issues

    Since day and night we are having issues with the winsxs folder and larger and larger drives. Using SCCM it caches the windows updates but also windows is saving new and older updates in the winsxs folder. I can understeand it is needed for uninstall etc. All physical and virtual servers can then save a lot of drive space and more important we don't need to pro active expant drivers or even have crashed machines after the tuesday update round.

  4. Add export feature to Monitoring/Queries

    Currently the only way to export data from any query built under the Monitoring/Overview/Queries location is to highlight, copy and paste. This seems rather ridiculous considering todays technology. I believe that an export feature should be added so the data can be retrieved from these queries easily, and to any number of outputs such as Excel, PDF, etc., rather than having to copy and paste especially when the output is several thousand rows long.

  5. Pre/Post patching validation

    Provide a means to do a pre-check for pending reboots
    Notify owners of server/workstation of update cycle
    Set a reboot order for collection so the server/workstation is booted in a predefined order
    Run a post patch validation after patching
    Give the ability to run a "script" to validate install applications are operating correctly.

  6. Sccm client resets its policies and download new ones every couple of days

    Sccm client reset its policies and download new ones every couple of days, it should delete it's policies, inventory and then download new policies, perform inventory and perform a DDR. I currently have a script that does this via a scheduled task.

  7. Elevated Access - Delete Collections

    Full Administrators should have the ability to delete collections no matter what roles are assigned. Currently in our environment we have multiple roles that have access to various collections and once a collection is created it cannot be deleted unless it is removed from a large number of roles.

    Request to have the ability to delete with confirmation, this will remove the collection (if empty) no matter what assignments are set on it.

  8. Maintenance Window for EP Definition Updates/Security Updates

    Please add the possibility in a MW to "apply this schedule to"
    - EP Defintion Updates (you may want to allow daily defintion updates, but you don't want to install anything else at that time)
    - Security Updates (not all Software Updates, as it is now, but only Security Updates)

    In this case make it multiselect too.

  9. Allow third-party code to read secret task sequence variables value

    Currently there is no way to use Secret Task Sequence Variables in third-party extension to SCCM. Please, add API for this or document how to achieve this.

  10. Exclude workgroup computers from Automatic Client Upgrade

    When using ACU computers in workgroups cannot upgrade because they are not able to query Active Directory when "ccmsetup /upgrade" is executed. We have seen some scenarios where the installed client on workgroup machines crashed after each failing installation trial. It would be great if an option was implemented to either exclude workgroup computers or provide a list of domains that should be considered during ACU.

  11. Incorporate Configuration Manager Servicing Extension's Collection Builder functionality to the main product

    Today Configuration Manager Servicing Extension brings new functionality to the product but it is a separate download. It provides a list of Configuration Manager client versions that may be present in your environment, and makes it easy to create queries to locate these clients. Make this functionality built-in to the main product.

  12. SCCM SUP as command and control only, no deployment pacakges

    When WSUS was running standalone it was possible to use it as command and control only no local storage of patches only. With SCCM it is impossible to use without having to download and distribute patches as deployment packages. Let's get rid of that requirement, just create the Software update groups and allow all content to be downloaded at deployment time from Microsoft patching infrastructure. Its way more geographically distributed and fault tolerant and anything we can build in an SCCM infrastructure.

  13. Deploy certificate with the Client (like in Intune)

    Certificate would tie up the ConfigMgr Client to a specific site and would make connecting ConfigMgr Clients from the Internet easier with MP in Azure.

  15. Add Richer Configuration Settings for Pull DPs into the console

    Currently when you wish to adjust Pull DP settings you need to do this through Webmtest, Powershell or VB script. Example adjusting the retry times or retry interval.

    It would be nice to take the most commonly used settings that are adjusted from review of the ConfigMgr cases and place those settings into the ConfigMgr console to make the Pull DPs more robust, manageable and a richer experience.

  16. Add predefined action (to task sequence or application/package) to copy files/folders to user workstation (as user OR as system)

    Often whole software config is a single file. It is a pain to keep creating batch files for a simple copy action

  17. More robust control of system restart

    Now we have only two parameters for Restart behavior: time to show the first warning and time to show the 'always on top' notification. It would be better if we can configure some user-controllable options. E.g. possibility to postpone a reboot.

  19. Internet Explorer version report

    An out of the box report on IE versions would be very helpful, whether in the Software - Companies and Products group of reports, or elsewhere.
