  1. Have Software Centre Updates include more info than status: past due will be installed

    Instead of having a status: past due will be installed. Include a date and time when the update will either try to be installed or will retry.

  2. Set maintenance windows just after Patch Tuesday

    Could we set the maintenance window just after patch Tuesday as Patch Tuesdays might be on the second or third Tuesday of the month. And the current setting could only happen on specified day of the month. Could we have a option just after after Tuesday,

  3. Prevent CM clients from attempting to switch SUP's when there is no network connectivity of any kind

    It's rare today to be in locations without any network connectivity at all, but it does happen. In this situation the CM client will continually attempt to switch SUP's. This can result in a user returning to the office and receive patching errors because the CM client happens to be trying to reach a SUP it can't contact, a DMZ server for example. Yes, this should correct itself over time, but preventing it from happing in the first place would be preferred.
    So the suggestion is to add some sort of network connectivity check to the SUP selection process toā€¦

  4. If trustedinstaller is disabled manual deployment of patches should report failure instead of not applicable

    When an MS endpoint has the trustedinstaller disabled, and a requirement to manually deploy a patch is in place, the system will report an update as not applicable. This should instead be reported as a block or failure during the check process. This in turn should be used for sccm reporting as the system will show as compliant when it is in fact not complaint.

  5. Allow ADR scheduling to be relative to the ADR day, but specify the time as static

    Right now, ADR scheduling is based on the time at which the ADR completes. We would like to schedule the ADR's as relative by day (ie, updates are available 3 days after ADR runs, and deadlined 7 days after the ADR runs), but static by time (ie, 1am).

    This way, we can make sure deployment times are never changing, even while we have the flexibility of setting deployment days based on the ADR.

  6. Ability to control when a client downloads updates for a deployment

    Have a separate deployment setting for when the updates will be downloaded by the client so that the client can download updates prior to the deadline time or even "Download As Soon As Possible". The setting would be useful for required and available deployments so that the clients could pre-cache updates.
    Options could be "As Soon As Possible. or a specific date and time.

  7. More options for Software Update Summarization

    It would be nice to have more options within the software update summarization. Today you only have the options to select days/hours. I have seen/heard where larger organizations have trouble running this in a timely manner. Some options would be to only summarize updates that are deployed and/or summarize updates that have been released/revised in x amount of days.

  8. Deactivation of Downloads and Updates in Windows Store App

    We distribute Windows Apps and App Updates over SCCM and there is no Policy or Registry Key to deactivate "Downloads and Updates" in the Windows Store App. The Policy for Deactivation of automatic Updates is already set, but the User can still manually update the Apps in the Windows Store App. So we have a mismatch of App Versions between SCCM and Windows Store. We cannot block the native Store app, because we have several other Business Apps installed, which needs the MS Store App Access. Please inform us, when additional Policy or Registry Key for the Windows Store Appā€¦

  9. Fix extremely prolonged software updates synchronization time with Surface category enabled

    When the Surface driver category is enabled at the Software Update Point role, currently here a software updates synchronization cycle takes around 100 minutes. When disabling the Surface category, even with 3rd party drivers and -updates enabled, the sync time including Microsoft product updates is only 10 minutes.
    We expect that the Surface sync works differential, same as it does for any other updates. So it does not make sense why it runs so unnecessarily long, even if one runs 2 syncs in a row where surely no changes happened at Surface drivers.

  10. Add SharePoint Patching process built-into SCCM

    Out of box process for patching SharePoint should be available in SCCM. If its a pre-built task sequence, or SCCM detects the roles installed on each server and knows how to patch those components. This primarily relates to security patching, but the process should be much easier.

  11. The ability to log off disconnected users from servers.

    Hi All,

    We notice that when using ADR's, that servers will not restart in their defined maintance Window when there is a disconnect user running in the background.

    A option to log off all disconnected user within the deployment of a ADR of perhaps in server groups would be a great addition.

  12. Install Feature Updates before other updates

    Similar to the change made to SSU's, it would be nice if CM could detect that a Feature Update has been deployed and install that before other updates.

    Currently, it will queue and install patches along-side the Feature Update. E.g. it might essentially waste time installing the CU for 1809 then immediately install the 1909 Feature Update right after. Once the Feature Update is finished installing and has rebooted, it will need to re-eval and install the 1909 CU.

  13. It would be better include check box to select or deselect Software updates in SCCM.

    At the moment all we can select Software updates by clicking each of Software updates and sometimes it cause confusion. It would be good if we can have kind of Check box option where we can select or deselect Software updates in SCCM console.

  14. Orchestration Group membership

    I have a few collections that use queries for membership. I would like to be able to have a query run once a week to check membership for Orchestration Groups instead of going through and creating a static list.

  16. Orchestration groups - Granular behaviour for different types of update

    Adding more granular control to the behaviour orchestration groups depending on types of updates would improve the feature greatly.

    For example, specifying different behaviour for different types of updates - customers probably don't want to run pre-scripts and post-scripts or even potentially any orchestration for definition updates, whereas they might want to for other types of updates

  17. Allow Delivery optimization / Connected Cache (DOINC) to be used for ConfigMgr Downloads

    Enable ConfigMgr to utilize Delivery Optimization for Downloads from Microsoft CDN (Windows Updates, Office 365 Updates). Currently This only works for Express Updates. All downloads nativily done by ConfigMgr Agent from the CDN, are using BITS, therefore bypassing DeliveryOptimization (and Connected Cache).
    My plan: Control updates deployment though SCCM, but don't care about contents, let ConfigMgr get them from the cloud, through DO (from Connected Cache when in CorpNetwork, directly if not, always trying DO P2P)

  18. Process Delivery Optimization Client Settings within OSD TS

    Process the DO Client Setting Policy while within a OSD TS to support also the packageless deployment of Software Updates during OSD without the need to download every update for every client.

    The current behavior in case of deploying software updates without a package during an OSD TS is that each client will download every update from MS instead of using DO and DOINC/MCC.

    The idea behind this scenario is, that you can eliminate the package distribution for Windows updates wihthin the ConfigMgr Hirarchy completely and just use DO as source while ConfigMgr is still the part to configure whichā€¦

  20. Include option to create Child ADR/Nested ADR

    For Example, if we want to create ADR's for Windows 10 and O365 updates, we need two ADR's to be created, because of the difference in configurations such as Title, Product, classifications - all differs on both. If it is nested then we have an opportunity to embed the child ADR in to parent and can be executed on the same time.

    Just similar to creating Child Configuration Item to the parent and deploying both of them using a Single Configuration Baseline.
