  1. Make ConfigMgr upgrade process resilient

    As of now when an enterprise thinks of upgrade, we have only one thing to do before (TestDBUpgrade). This makes sure if the DB is upgradable. But what if the Upgrade fails at the next step (Copying files). We don't have an option to again run the upgrade only from that step and running from beginning will not work as DB is already upgraded it will fail to find some objects. If this is a CAS site this means you have to again go back to a previous version and recover it and make sure the sites in the hierarchyā€¦

  2. Add support for tftp windowsize

    I think it would be great if SCCM could have a configurable value in registry for TFTP windowsize just as it has with TFTP blocksize. Both WDS and bootmgr.exe seem to handle it but there is no easy way to get this option into the generated BCD file upon PXE boot. Seems like a low hanging fruit.

  3. Integrate Configuration Manager Reporting with Power BI or provide OData reporting

    Configuration Manager is a great source of information for organisations. The problem with this repository of data is that it requires someone to take advantage of it. Reports or queries need to be generated by someone who knows what they are doing. Connecting Configuration Manager to PowerBI or providing an OData interface would allow Configuration Manager inventory data to be more easily accessed and used

  4. Add a "Description" Parameter to the Get/Set/Add CMDistributionPoint cmdlets

    I'd like to see a "Description" parameter added to the Get/Set/Add CMDistributionPoint cmdlets so descriptions can be programatically added w/o having to try this through separate WMI cmdlets.

  5. Better support of high DPI and UI scaling in the console

    I know Windows 10 is bringing much better support of HiDPI, but I don't believe the console is taking advantage of those enhancements.

    Most of the console renders OK on HiPDI screens, but there are many windows that are simply unusable due to improper support of scaling. The examples I've attached are from a 4K monitor at 150% (which is the default for Windows). This issue also occurs on HiPDI screens on laptops like the Dell XPS 13.

  6. Initiate update deployment eval post reboot after install from Software Center

    When a user installs updates from Software Center only the updates that were selected to be installed are evaluated for their state post reboot. The whole deployment those updates were in, even if all updates in the deployment were selected, will not be queried for compliance post reboot. This causes a delay in the deployment compliance reporting as you need to wait for the deployment to be evaluated on schedule. In some instances this could be days. Running evaluation on the deployments those selected updates were in post reboot would solve the reporting delay.

  7. SCCM 2012 R2 - PowerShell Commandlet needed to remove Updates from Group (Add-CMSoftwareUpdateToGroup exists)

    Hi all, my customer is using the PowerShell on a really high level to automate nearly all his ConfigMgr Patchmanagement Tasks. They are using Add-CMSoftwareUpdateToGroup but they're missing the matching Remove Commandlet.

  8. Set-CMProgram should support operating system requirements

    Add the possibility to set an operating system requirement on program for legacy package. The cmdlet set-cmprogram has no switch for that.

  9. When you uninstall an application and the content for all the deployment types is not in the cache then the entire content will be downloade

    When you uninstall an application and the content for all the deployment types is not in the cache then the entire content will be downloaded again even if this is not required for the uninstallation routine.

    The client should be able to determine whether or not it needs to download the content before initiating an uninstallation.

  10. Make all dialogs shown to the end-user include company logo

    A truly great feature would be to be able to customize all dialogs show to the end-user, both for OSD, but also reboot prompts basically all dialogs shown to the end-user.
    Adding a company logo so that the end-user actually knows it is from our company and trustworthy.

  11. Request for intelligent MP, SMP and SUP selection based on network location, like current DP selection

    This is a DCR requesting that we improve the logic around MP, SMP and SUP selection by clients. Currently, we gather AD Site and IP Subnet details for DPs, store that in DPInfo and include that information in the XML body returned on content lookup requests. Why can we not do this for other server roles so that the client can choose the best server to connect to based on matching AD Site and/or IP Subnet? This would provide a far better solution than having to populate AllowedMPs, too.

  12. Add a button in Software Center to allow the users to refresh the Machine/User Policy

    Add a button in Software Center so the user can update the MAchine and User Policy. Would be a great feature for the end-user when waiting for an application to be available!

  13. Preferred Software Update Points

    Now that we have the option to define both Distribution Points and Management Points as preferred, it'd be terrific if we could have the same option for Software Update Points. It would make a strong case when designing a flat hierarchy.

  14. Combine Software Center and Application Catalog into a Single application

    We would like to see a single web portal, preferably HTML-based, to marry the Software Center and Application Catalog. We deploy both types of offerings, and a single place for users to get new software would be great.

  16. Automatic Client upgrades after upgrading Site with Cumulative Update (CU)

    When upgrading your site with a CU, have the clients automatically upgrade as well instead of creating a Package Deployment.

  17. Continue to invest in Out-of-band support (Intel Vpro/AMT)

    SCCM only supports up to version 6, latest hardware uses version 10.
    SCCM provisioning uses SOAP which was deprecated by Intel.
    This is now a big hassle for people who want to use Intel Vpro in combination with SCCM. We need to make use of an Intel Add-on (Intel SCS) to get things working but itā€™s far from ideal.
    Please bring back the provisioning support compatible with the latest versions of Vpro and bring support for new features such as KVM.

    In order to support customers as the speed Intel is update Vpro/AMT – we worked with Intel for them to own the integration, and support latest versions (as ConfigMgr itself only supported up to version 6.) Intel has released an updated version that should solve the customer needs:
    http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/software/setup-configuration-software.html
    We will continue to partner with Intel to provide APIs they need for the integration.

  18. SCCM Gateway Servers for Deployment to DMZ's

    We should be able to deploy SCCM Gateway servers for deployment to DMZ, Internet and Remote locations where opening ports to the management servers / domains are not feasible. We are unable to forward ports from the internet to our LAN and must use a DMZ. There is no way to implement SCCM for IBCM because of this.

  19. Support Evaluation of "On Battery" for Most Client Activities

    To reduce potential for failures due to low battery situations and to minimize the ConfigMgr client's impact to system battery life, introduce a check for certain client actions to allow them to be delayed or bypassed when the system is found to be running on battery or running critically low on battery:
    + Software distribution
    + Compliance settings
    + Inventory
    + Anti-malware scans

  20. Option to set security scopes for SCEP policies

    SCEP policies do not have the ability to set security scopes. This is a problem because our SCCM is shared by several departments and colleges in the university. For example, someone may inadvertently (or intentionally) modify a policy for DCs which can have a catastrophic effects. Having the ability to set security scopes will restrict who has access to individual SCEP policies.
