  1. An option to configure a DP such that it only downloads the distributed content from the site when the first client requests for it.

    An option to configure a DP such that it only downloads the distributed content from the site when the first client requests for it. This will help manage DP disk space efficiently as most of the content never gets used at a remote site but we do not know what's really needed in advance. With semi annual channels the content problem is getting worse each day.

    Below is the config manager thread I had opened and an expert asked me to submit a request here.

      • Enable New-CMBootableMedia to use a Cloud DP (or Content enabled CMG)

        This Cmdlet does not support using a cloud distribution point as the distribution point source (and neither does the GUI).

        This means that in order to use this feature we have to have an on-premise DP purely for this purpose.

        • Certificate Profiles for Servers

          We have some workgroup servers which are unable to access the enterprise CA so we want to deploy some root CA certificates to them per sccm.
          Currently it is only possible to select client OSE's on the supported plattform page. Please allow server OSE's as well.
          Thanks

            • System up time column in Device Collection View

              Would be great if we could see the system boot time or how long the system has been up in the collection views. Hopefully this info could be gathered via the mechanism that is getting the current logged on user. An example where it would be useful is just after patching to confirm the devices have restarted.

              • SMSTSPostReboot / SMSTSOnStart command

                When a specific app or utility needs to be run (ex. a custom monitoring application) after each restart, it would be handy if we could put the command in a variable. The command should then be executed after each restart, before the TS continues.

                    • Would like for a Configuration Manager Console package to be created automatically on site upgrade

                      Would like for a Configuration Manager Console package to be created automatically on site upgrade as is done with the Configuration Manager Client package. The use case is for deploying the admin console to new operators. Instead of having to manually create an admin console package and update it after each site upgrade, SCCM could automatically create and update this package.

                      • Maintenance Window Calendar Overview

                        Just curious if this could be possible to be implemented using either reporting service or in console but if you could deploy a calendar overview of Maintenance Windows similar to a Gantt chart in which we could see overlapping bars of Maintenance Windows on a timescale in a calendar view along with applicable collections as it's header would be great in terms of planning or discussing changes in a change approval board and/or planning patch management downtime.
                        The best way would be using reports as that link can be shared with PMO/Decision makers for their review.
                        Thanks

                              Have a SUS Blog that is staffed or updated during the monthly Patch release so we can quickly and efficiently locate any problematic updates.

                              For example we had various issues last year with different monthly .NET updates and this past week with the March updates, a known PXE issue impacting SCCM due to an update. I also had to open a CritSit case Sunday evening because our SUS server could not synchronize with Microsoft internal servers and was told it was an internal Microsoft server issue but it was not posted/blogged or communicate anywhere for customers.

                                • Display warning if Copying / cloning a collection with a Maintenance Window configured

                                  It would be easy to Copy/Clone a collection with a maintenance window configured, and not realize your new collection now has a maintenance window set.

                                  A simple pop up providing notification would be helpful.

                                    Just to make like easier, why not build in an MSI wrapper tool into the console.

                                        • Keep Previous Version of Content available while Distributing

                                          Currently, when content for an OS Image, Package, Application, etc is being updated, that object is unavailable until the content update completes. This means that content updates for large items must be timed very carefully, especially when sending to remote sites.

                                          It would be amazing if a Distribution Point could keep the previous version of the item available while the content is updating, then switch to the new content and delete the old after it's completed.
