  2. Need details pane for Intune Subscription information

    It would be nice to have a 'details' pane when selecting a subscription, to maybe even show a little bit of status (like last time synchronized, number of devices enrolled, etc.

  4. Replace .wim download via tftp with wimboot via http with ipxe

    The idea of wim download via tftp is so 20 century. Takes 59 sec to download wim in my environment during TS PXE boot (then the actual boot process)
    Same .wim bootted with ipxe/wimboot via http takes 15 seconds all in! (that is less then a 1/4)

  5. Integrate MDT by default

    Instead of having us integrate MDT, why not just include the scripts in a new SCCM install by default?

    Declining because we have already added a number of native steps to mirror commonly used steps from MDT in SCCM Task Sequences and we have an overall work item for completing integration of more all our feedback is captured for this work too so comments below are appreciated and not lost. We’d rather return your votes and let you know we have this as an open item.

    If there are specific features of MDT you would like to see natively in SCCM then please re-purpose your now returned votes to make specific suggestionsā€

  6. on-premises MDM

    Support for iOS, Android and W10 to enable scenarios like offline Kiosk computers in shops/stores to be managed with on-premises MDM.

  7. Powershell cmdlets on client machines

    Currently, PS cmdlets are only available on machines where the Console is installed. However, there are many things that an admin may want to do that would be made a lot easier if a large subset of those commands where available on the client machines. This would especially be helpful when running scripts during a Compliance Item, but would also make an impact during OSD Task Sequences, or Packages that deploy and run scripts to perform actions, etc.

    Examples would be to query/modify collection membership during a script on the client, set primary user from client based on some criteriaā€¦

    I’m marking this as declined to return votes back to folks.

    This isn’t something we plan on addressing. The main problem as mentioned before is that the PowerShell cmdlets require SMS Provider connectivity to work, and that in turn requires having a certain level of trusted site server access for the account executing the cmdlets.

    We do support PowerShell remoting so you can run cmdlets from another machine that has the administrator console installed without having to install the console on the client machine that you’re currently connected to.

  8. Continue and enhance Linux support

    I'd like to see the Linux client have more functionality as the Windows client.

    o Automatic deployment
    o ability to reinstall
    o more detailed status returned
    o ability to query existance of certain files on a linux system

  9. Possibility to deploy a .vhdx instead of just a .vhd into the VMM library.

    Possibility to deploy a .vhdx instead of just a .vhd into the VMM library.
    Also the following features should be optional when the vhd/vhdx is created and is being copied into the library:

    1) Insert an auto-updated incrementing version number (x.x.x.x).
    2) Add a disk tag.
    3) Add family name

  10. Need true imaging solution

    Deploying operating systems from a WIM file and then adding applications via packages, leaves a lot to be desired from a speed standpoint. It typically takes at least an hour to fully deploy via OSD to a target machine.

    My suggestion would be to acquire a true imaging or cloning solution (Ghost, Altiris) and incorporate that functionality into SCCM vNext. I haven't used one of these other solutions in some time, but it seems that they at least used to perform a sector for sector copy and pull down an image in a matter of 2-3 minutes.

    Thanks for the feedback. While Sector based imaging does offer some speed benefits there’s many benefits to using WIM format

    WIM can be serviced, patched offline. Any of the DISM actions for customization
    WIM can be split – this is useful for spanning media when the image is large
    WIM can contain multiple indices, these can be separate data or another OS
    there’s many more..

    You mention ‘… then adding applications via packages’ – with sector based the applications are typically baked in meaning that image is useful for one group only. With OSD/task sequence the same image can be used with App deployment customizable

    We won’t be moving from WIM so I have to mark this Declined.

  11. Update PowerShell Cmdlets to be more consistent between functions.

    PowerShell functions for CM aren't always consistent. For example, when you create a new Software Update Group using New-CMSoftwareUpdateGroup, it requires the addition of updates using the CI_ID, which is not readily visible, nor is it as intuitive as using a patch description or KB. Whereas, with the Add-CMSoftwareUpdateToGroup, you can add updates a number of ways including by name.

  13. Support for VHDX virtual hard disk format for export to System Center VMM

    We want to take advantage of ConfigMgr's ability to produce virtual hard disks for VMM templates. The concern we have is that our standard is VHDX format. However, ConfigMgr only seems to support VHD's according to the documentation.

    This should have been updated with the other VHD items in 1806 timeframe

    Updating status of this item to Declined.

    Support for VHD was deprecated, this was announced in January 2017 ā€“ see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/changes/deprecated/removed-and-deprecated-cmfeatures

    In 1802 we have removed the VHD node. Actions on existing VHDs e.g. Removal can still be completed using our PowerShell CmdLets as we havenā€™t removed the SDK

  14. SCCM 2012 CU 5 - urgent requirements

    Requirements:

    1. Collection:

    -You are creating a collection with a Query based rule
    -The query statement is about adding 2000+ machines to the collection
    -But in the show Query design window, if we copy the query which is containing 2000+ systems, its unable to accommodate that
    -You are able to add around 1800 systems in CM 2007, in the same way, but not in CM 2012

    1. Program:

    -In CM 2007, you create a package
    -Create couple of programs a.Disable b. Enable
    -In Advertisement, you first select the Disable program
    -After your QA team validates it, they will just change the programā€¦

  16. Many ideas

    It will be great to introduce:
    - A real time installation progress for client deployment with % and step details (in the collection column for example) ...
    - An automatic clean rollback for software updates deployment when an issue is happen.
    - All client actions from the console (like right click tools).
    - more possibilities from the remote control like files transfert and chat...
    - Approval request by email (submit and receive).
    - Full management for Windows firewall (create protocol, rules, exception ... like from GPO).
    - Endpoint client push deployment on one client or on a collection.
    - Moreā€¦

    Great ideas, can you please submit these individually though (at least where it makes sense). This way we can more easily prioritize the ideas based on votes.

  19. Pending Reboot - Client Status

    Could we have one or all of these features?

    1) A built-in dynamic collection for just computers that are in Pending Reboot Status

    2) Under The Monitoring section under Client Status - Include a Pending Reboot table of some sorts.

    I’m going to decline this for now (given you know the 0-vote system to get my attention), to give you quick feedback. This is an interesting idea; but not something we could make work. Reboot notifications are through the fast channel, and thus too volatile – and would stress colleval out if a dynamic collection was based on them. For now, you can sort (or filter) in the UI – anytime you are looking to take action on them.
