    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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…

          • Bug & Solution // Error The SELECT permission was denied on the object 'v_WindowsServicingStates'

            Windows Server 2016
            SCCM just upgraded to SCCM CB 1806

            When i run the Report "Lifecycle 01A - Computers with a specific software product" and i select "Windows 10, version 1703" it throws an error:
            Error The SELECT permission was denied on the object 'v_WindowsServicingStates'
            It Works fine if I for example select "Windows 8.1"

            I could reproduce it both environments - Test and Live.

            Solution:
            smsschm_users had no rights on the view 'v_WindowsServicingStates' for select
            set it manually, then it works

            • To be able to send wake up packet to a client from the admin console

              It would be useful to send a wake up packet to a client machine from the admin console to allow remote access if the machine has been turned off. This could be a check box option on the remote control screen. For example: "Send wake up if client is off"

              • Enable right click WOL a device from inside the console

                Allow the built in use of WOL, and right click to wake up a machine or a collection at anytime. Also fix ConfigMgr's native WOL technology to work on common network infrastructure (no Mac-Flapping.)

                • task sequence variable applied to nested task sequence

                  It would be good if you a Task Sequence Variable created in the Parent task sequence could be applied in the child task sequence.

                  e.g.
                  Task Sequence A sets the task sequence variable 'wibble' = True

                  Nested Task Sequence B has a step that runs if the Condition is set to run if Task Sequence Variable 'wibble' = True

                  Hope that makes sense.

                  • Fix Peer Cache limit to subnet

                    Currently peer cache is still not a usable feature. We have found that all systems see themselves on the same subnet because of the Teredo Tunneling Adapter. They are all on the same IPv6 subnet. This has almost been found by a 3rd party vender (https://2pintsoftware.com/peer-cache-1806/). As Peer Cache is now a release feature and not pre-release, this should be fixed ASAP as it is a broken feature.

                              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

                              • 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.

                                • Integrate LEDBAT into ConfigMgr

                                  LEDBAT is a Congestion Control Mechanism that's coming to Windows Server 2016/Windows 10. Successfully used by BitTorrent/Apple Software Update to reduce Bandwidth Saturation during content downloads. This would make WAN transfers of content by BITS (or any other mechanism) 'give way' to other business traffic. Would also improve Software Update scans and HW/Inv Uploads to the MP. LEDBAT makes sure that only unused bandwidth is used for the transfer.

                                  • When Expiring Updates based on Supersedence Rules also Decline them in WSUS

                                    When SCCM expires updates based on the configured Supersedence Rules it only does so in SCCM, not WSUS. Additionally, SCCM does not approve updates in WSUS.
                                    Because of these two facts the WSUS Cleanup Wizard will never decline superseded updates. They are neither expired (as they are in SCCM) nor are their superseding updates approved (a requirement for the WSUS Cleanup Wizard). This causes a bloated Update Catalog that can cause very real client issues. There are scripts available to handle this situation but this is the last mile issue in regards to WSUS maintenance. If the product declined the…

                                    • Give us an option for Appx Provisioning Deployment

                                      ConfigMgr supports .appx deployment, but sometimes we want these on every user that signs into the machine. These machines may be on metered connections and not have a stable connection at the time to redownload the appx file. DISM lets us do this by hand and calls it provisioning. This is a long and complicated process when deploying to 1000's of machines.

                                      Currently SCCM pushed Windows Modern Applications can only installed into the current users profile even if the deployment is targeted at the machine.

                                      Can we get the option in SCCM for if we want the APPX provisioned for…

                                      • RBA Viewer that works with CM CB

                                        The RBA Viewer that is released in 2015 constantly crashes in my production system. I was able to get it to work in a lab running an older verison of SCCM.
                                        So far it crashes with CM1606 and 1702

                                        Can RBA Viewer be updated to support the new permissions that have been introduced over the past 2 years and updated it with every release of CM CB?

                                        If there are no plans to update rbaviewer can a statement be released that the current version is not supported with CM1606 and beyond?
                                        Or whatever version you feel is appropriate?
