  1. Task Sequence Pre-Cache for all Packages inside

    It would be nice to have the ability to conditionally pre-cache all packages in Upgrade TS and not only OS Upgrade step.

    To describe it in more details, in current design we are able to pre-cache only OS Upgrade step to computers based on conditions. This is not enough for companies with 20+ languages as best approach is to create en-us core image and then apply MUI on top of that. Doing this will cause system to report as e.g. de-de so we would need to download and distribute to 150+ DPs all supported Upgrade packages instead of distributing onlyā€¦

    Updating status, I didn’t receive any reply for expanding on what your ask was.

    Standalone media is used for scenarios where there’s low or no bandwidth and also for recovery scenarios.

    We do not allow specifying the Primary site – I presume this is for the management point, once the client installs dependent on boundaries, AD membership etc. the client will find the management point and register. (that’s assuming there’s network available).

    Thanks and regards,
    Bob

  3. Task Sequence - View Only option

    Add Option to View TS, instead of "edit". Often times I just want to look at a TS for reference, and not edit it. Just safe guarding the TS from my accidental clicks.

  4. Enhance task sequence step preprovision bitlocker with encryptionmode options

    For MBAM clients I want to use preprovisioned bitlocker volumes.
    A requirement is to use the AES256 encryption mode.The pre provision bitlocker step defaults to aes128, and cannot be changed in the step itself.
    I now have a extra step before the preprovision bitlocker step with this command:
    cmd /c reg.exe add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\FVE /v EncryptionMethod /t REG_DWORD /d 4 /f

    Thanks to this website:

  5. Queries vs Collections

    We have also experienced "Collection Creep". A tool would be handy to view/delete collections from a search criteria, e.g: No Memebers, No Deployments, no membership change in 6 months.

  6. Create an SCCM Community Catalog Feature

    Creating SCCM Collection Queries is an art, and like most art, some of us are more suited to stick-figures while others produce beautiful creations worthy of a place in the Louvre, featuring graceful sub-queries, artful tabbing and good code practices.

    When creating a collection, it would be helpful to have an optional 'Community Collection Catalogue' to choose from, which could have a user-voice style 'Most useful' collections list.

    Users could create collections here, possibly even having a community 'wish-list' area for those without skills to request from those who would like to share.

    Contributions in the community catalog could beā€¦

  7. Disk number variable for Format and Partition Disk step

    Sometimes OSD does not put Windows on the drive that we want in systems with multiple drives because of things like raid/SAS controllers or nVME. If you allow a variable to be used for the "disk number" in the format and partition step, a custom UI could be used to select the correct disk number from WMI and send that variable (which is just a number) to the format and partition step.

  9. Add import code button to new Run PowerShell script task sequence step

    The 1811 Technical Preview added a "enter or paste a PowerShell script" function to the "Run PowerShell script" Task Sequence step. That is an awesome feature, but even more awesome would an import code button that automatically puts the code in for you when you direct it to a .ps1 script.

  10. DwnLdr-SPY

    Hi,

    I noticed that our company Sophos software picked up a virus that the SCCM Endpoint software did not, can you confirm if the following virus is in your threat catalogue?

    VBS/DwnLdr-SPY aka Trojan.GenericKD.4228438

    This has been in the Sophos database since 20 April 2017

  11. Run Scripts: Ability to Edit Scripts

    In 1706, once you create a script and approve it (or deny it) there is no way to alter the script except but to create a new one. Would be great to have the ability to set the script back to waiting for approval, which would unlock the code to be edited.

  13. Need support for Option 82 in PXE DHCP handshake as network tenant based on BGP/MPLS needs it for forwarding to DHCP Client.

    In order to avoid using distributed PXE Servers a support of the Option on PXE DHCP Handshake would make proper inter tenant forwarding possible.

    Thanks for all your feedback and suggestions. Updating status to completed ā€“ see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/configmgr/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each status.

    This is the opt-in phase of our 1910 release (fast ring) and it is now live. Customers can opt-in and then download 1910 through their Admin Console now. In a couple weeks, weā€™ll open it up to everybody (slow ring), to enable downloading without the need to opt-in.

  16. Run Powershell Script (Task Sequence Step) passed parameters not visible in logging

    When parameters are provided on a 'Run Powershell Script' in a task sequence, the SMSTS.log only logs the name of the script. It does not log the full command (including parameters) that are invoked.

    For example: if I call Java.ps1 with parameters -level 1 -language eng the SMSTS.log only shows...

    Running powershell script: 'Java.ps1'(PkgID: SCM00000) with execution policy 'Bypass'

    This would be helpful in troubleshooting what parameters were actually passed to the script that is executing. Otherwise you have to track down the task sequence and assume everything entered is passed and run. Or you have to build your PS1ā€¦

  18. Upgrade Operating System Task should be able to use Windows Servicing Content and Allow user interaction

    Problem:
    ā€¢ Current state of windows 10 servicing via upgrade sequence requires full media to take the client through setup.
    o Full media is 2x the size of existing ESD (upgrade content)
    o The Upgrade Operating System step does not allow the end user to defer the reboot nor does it warn the user of a reboot pending once setup has been kicked off

    I. The Upgrade Operating System step in the task sequence shall permit the administrator to reference windows 10 servicing content
    II. The Upgrade Operating System step in the task sequence shall permit theā€¦

    Updating status to completed – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each value.

    This ask spans a couple of areas, we’ve addressed the system reboot customization with the variable SMSTSRebootDelayNext – I’ll close this item and return your votes to you.

    For using ESD, we have this item https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/16896706-windows-10-upgrade-servicing if you want to add your votes to that.

    [Aaron Smith – I’ve sent you a couple of messages to help solve your issue, let me know the status, thanks]

  19. Software Center View Settings configurable in Client Settings

    Would love to see the ability to set list view or tile view for Software Center in the Client Settings. List view is much easier to read that tile view and having users change it manually is difficult. Not to mention the settings don't save.

  20. List SMS Provider as site system role

    When decomissioning a site sytem, having the sms provider installed on that site system can cause the decomissioning to fail. By just displaying the sms provider as a site system role in the console, it's much easier to figure out that the fact that the sms provider is still installed is causing this.
