  1. Explanation of the future of MDM support in SCCM

    Hybrid MDM support is deprecated in SCCM. Details of this deprication is here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/mdm/understand/hybrid-mobile-device-management
    If you are a Hybrid customer, Microsoft is very happy to work with you to make your migration to Intune seamless/painless. Please reach out to Microsoft support.

    While Hybrid support for MDM is going away, SCCM will innovate together with Intune, and will continue to grow closer together. More capabilities and better together scenarios will be coming soon.

  2. Explanation on SCCM linux/unix client deprecation

    Why was the SCCM Linux/Unix client deprecated. Some SCCM customers use and depend on this functionality. Why is it no longer being invested in?

  3. Use SCCM to remote control multiple monitors

    When using SCCM to remote control multiple monitors; allow the ability to select only one monitor to be remote controlled; vs. the option now of only stretching.

  5. Remove the need for App Catalog, by providing all functionality in Software Center

    Currently, some functionality is only available in the application catalog, and not in software center. Make it so everything can be done in software center, so we can remove application catalog... and Silverlight... and local site security configurations.

  6. Add separate security role permission for CMPivot

    Console users must have "Run Scripts" security role permission to use CMPivot. Can you add a separate security role permission for CMPivot so we can make administrative users with CMPivot permission but not "Run Scripts?"

  7. Reduce the amount of time needed perform a CM upgrade

    For most companies, Configuration Manager is becoming a mission critical service the requires less and less downtime. Upgrading large environments/DBs can take up to 5 hours for the CAS, and 4-5 hours for primary sites. Also, most customers want to get the latest hotfixes installed right after performing an upgrade. In some cases, the hotfixes take just a long to complete as the original upgrade. Overall, this can require long outages (sometimes 2 days) to get current.

    Potential Solutions:

    1. The ability to upgrade directly to the latest hotfix as noted here:
    https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/33166225-upgrade-sccm-directly-to-rollup-version

    2. Reduce the time needed to regenerate…

  8. Need WSUS Maintenance tasks

    There should be a few built in maintenance tasks to go through and complete all the maintenance tasks that are needed for WSUS. I find having to run through these steps every month to be quite tedious requiring a lot of change control each month to get the maintenance work completed for WSUS.

    Everything described in this article should be automatically done by CM: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configurationmgr/2016/01/26/the-complete-guide-to-microsoft-wsus-and-configuration-manager-sup-maintenance/

  9. Run powerShell Script task sequence step to set variable appends to existing value instead of replace

    When using the new Run Powershell script step in a task sequence in CM 1902 and you use the "Output to a task sequence variable" option and choose and existing task sequence variable the value returned from the powershell script is appended to the variable instead of replacing the value of the variable.

    Seems this should set the value not append the value.

  10. Support PXE responder to run on same server as DHCP

    Currently it is not supported to use the built in PXE responder on the same server that is running DHCP. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have their own servers for SCCM DPs.

    Thanks for all your suggestions and feedback, updating status to completed.

    SCCM 1902 fast Ring released today which has the changes to allow PXE responder to run on the same server as DHCP role.

  11. Fix very slow content download (and constant certificate checks) - in a HTTPS Only infra - for OS upgrades through Task Sequence.

    Basically we observe a very slow content download ("Upgrade Operating System" + "Download package content" step, for the driver packs) when doing Win10 in-place upgrade through a TS over HTTPS.
    Issue occurs on both Win10 1607/1703, using SCCM 1802 (back-end and client).
    Approx. 90% of the smsts.log entries are all about certificate validation (sometimes even multiple times for 1 downloaded file).
    After each selection/validation action, a status of <success> is returned.. but only seconds later the same selection/validation is attempted over and over again.

  12. Allow Multiple Custom Tabs in Software Center

    With 1806 we have the ability to add a custom tab to Software Center. This makes this the place to go for all your IT needs.

    We would like to see this extended further by allowing admins to add more than one tab to Software Center. Hopefully our users would never need to leave Software Center for their IT experience in Windows with this feature.

  13. PowerShell Cmdlet for Modifying Nested Task Sequence (Get/Set-CMTSStepRunTaskSequence)

    It would be very helpful to have a cmlet that will allow you to modify the "Run Task Sequence" with PowerShell.

    I'd like to be able to script replicating an entire task sequence "suite" (including all of the nested sequences) and re-linking the new nested sequences.

    My use case is something like this:
    I want to start development work on a new build revision. The script would duplicate the production sequences (both parent and children) and repoint the "Run Task Sequence" steps to new "DEV" child sequences.

    This would automate the process and ensure that none of the production sequences…

  14. Integrate /ResetBase and WIM Optimization/Exporting into Offline Servicing

    In the interest in making my OS deployment task sequences as fast and as optimized as possible, I always optimize WIM files anytime they're updated or re-created.

    In my build/capture task sequence, I add a step at the very end before capture to run DISM /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase so that all of the superseded updates are removed from the base image before it is captured. This results in a smaller WIM file and obviously, faster deployment times.

    With the built-in Offline Servicing option for OS images, once new updates are added, they remain in the component store of the image when…

  16. CMPivot Web Portal

    We have a lot of people who would love to run queries against our systems (Desktop Support admins for example) that we do not give direct console access to. It would be super helpful to have a web-based interface for CMPivot to allow people an easy method to execute queries.

    In addition, a query builder like that of Azure Log Analytics would be helpful as well so we don't have to walk them thru how to write all there queries.

  17. Support for custom table synchronization into Data Warehouse

    Issue: Support for custom table synchronization into Data Warehouse

    Currently, although a method exists to extend tables that can be imported into the Data Warehouse, we learnt recently that this is not supported. We feel this represents a gap with the following impacts:
    - Not all tables from the SCCM database are currently synced into the DW. Even a common AI table like Install_Software_Data must be synced via this custom process. This is a table used heavily in AI based software title reporting and therefore a common addition to the DW.
    - Custom inventory tables – inventory extension/customization is a…

  18. Support center online documentation

    It would be great to have an up to date documentation
    Currently, it is pointing to ConfigMgr 2012.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/system-center/system-center-2012-R2/dn688621(v=technet.10)
    The tool is available with CB 1810.

  19. CMPivot - Additional operators and joins

    I'd like to see a few things added to CMPivot after having a chance to use it recently.
    1. Joins: Would be really useful to be able to join data from different entities, like joining process data with the device data to be able see what makes and models are running a specific process that may have a memory leak issue.

    2. Additional Operators: Would be nice to be able to do a math operation on data that comes back, convert memory values to MB/GB with division, etc.

  20. App Approval - Include User “comments” in Email

    The new App Approval feature in 1810 is looking great. So we can build on integration with other services and service desk software it would be handy to include the users “comment” in the email body.
    Expanding on this and having the ability to add a “cost” and “billing code” field to the app request will enable the app procurement lifecycle to more streamlined.
