  1. Servicing Plans should evaluate builds on Availability Date not Revision Date

    Servicing Plans, effectively, don't work anymore. I had this process setup to be automated with different deployment phases at 30, 90 and 180 days. This process no longer works because Microsoft has been releasing newer versions of the upgrades that reset the release date.

    So now build 2004, which released over 300 days ago, doesn't qualify for my 180 day General Release plan. Microsoft released an updated upgrade file on 11/9/2020, only 142 days ago. This revision was also 14 days BEFORE the 180 days was up, so build 2004 was never picked up by my Servicing Plan.

    This forces…

  2. Ability to add bios password to Dell third party updates so they install via SCCM

    We have setup and are using third party updates from the Dell catalog.
    we have this working very well BUT we are only using it for drivers as bios and firmware updates will not work because we are not able to add our bios password to the Dell updates. It would be nice to have the ability to get this fixed as most enterprises that use SCCM would have there workstations protected with bios passwords.

  3. WSUS - add ability to decline updates for specific computer groups

    In the WSUS console, computer groups are used to assign approved updates. It would make a lot of sense to also have the ability to Decline updates for selected computer groups.

    Example scenario:
    - You have computer groups: Windows Clients and Windows Servers.
    - You want to approve Office updates for Windows Clients, but Decline them for Windows Servers.

    Even if the Office updates are not approved for servers, they will be reported as "Needed" in the console when Office is installed on servers.

    It would make a lot of sense to have the ability to not only Approve, but…

  4. Additional guidance

    Need more specific instructions on deploying Office 365 updates on a NON-Connected SCCM Server after synchronizing them per your instructions. The synchronization process works, but finding the correct folder to point SCCM to for downloading is problematic at best and certainly not intuitive. Please provide additional instructions. Also, would be beneficial if SCCM could traverse from the root imported folder to find the update you are downloading locally for deployment.

  5. Place Server in Maintenance Mode in SCOM when it is patched via SCCM using Maintenance Window in Deployment Collection

    Business requires to suppress the false alerts in SCOM during monthly patching window especially for Windows Server. So if possible before updates installs via SCCM that particular client has to go Maintenance Mode in SCOM..

    Please let me know if that function is already available in SCCM current branch

  6. Make Orchestration more useful for Clusters

    I wish Orchestration can pick up the secondary servers to patch first and then patch the primary server. This is a big help for clusters because I don't need to worry about too many failovers.
    Right now you can achieve this but you need to manually feed the machines and specify the sequence which is more prone to mistake.

  7. Add an option to copy a deployment to another collection

    Similar to a phased deployment, it'd be nice to have an easy way, in the SCCM console, to copy a deployment to another collection.

  8. Multiple SUP Servers and shared db, better fault tolerance

    If you have multiple SUP Servers and shared database, WSUS Sync manager selects one SUP server randomly from usable SUPs.
    But if this selected SUP server can't contact Microsoft Update, the sync process fails.
    Instead of stopping the whole process, would it be better to select next available SUP server and see if that one works any better?

  9. View software updates in the Company Portal

    Have the ability to see/manage software updates in the Company Portal the same way we do in Software Center so that we can only use the Company Portal for all Mem's stuff on clients

  10. Include "ODBC Driver for SQL Server" in Windows Server Update Services (WSUS)

    It would be great if Microsoft could include updates for the "ODBC Driver for SQL Server" (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/connect/odbc/download-odbc-driver-for-sql-server) in Windows Server Update Services (WSUS)

    Thanks a lot for votes!

  11. Pull Feature Update packge from Microsoft during MECM Task Sequence

    Now that we can deploy Task Sequences over CMG, it would be a great if the Feature Update itself could be pulled directly from Microsoft instead of from the CMG (which would be costly)

    A built in step that can pull from WU/MU

  12. Speed ​​up the "delta download" / "delivery optimization" download

    If you enable the client setting "allow clienst to download delta content when available. the download is very, very slow. When Windows uses delivery optimization without sccm it runs much faster.

  13. Publish third-party software update content Ribbon Button

    When the focus is on All Software Updates node and then you highlight one or more non-published updates, in the ribbon's Update group, there is a lit button called Publish third-party software update content. It works great.

    Please make this button available (currently it is not), from looking at a list of one or more non-published updates (items) when you are already within a Software Update Group.
    e.g. Under All Software Updates highlight some individual updates of choice and then add them to a new Software Update Group (SUG). Go click on this group and show members. You are now…

  14. Orchestration Groups is by far under supported


    • We need better ways of assigning devices to OG's

    • We need PS administration.

    • Or at least we need better WMI documentation

    There are some bugs:
    * when you reset OG settings for a client, the client's status is not updated)
    * we have OG's that are listed as "failed" but where all members are Idle,
    * we have OG's where all or a lot of the clients are "waiting" and have been for a long time, and nothing happens

  15. Add Delivery Optimization and Connected Cache Monitoring to Endpoint Analytics

    An extra log workspace in azure is required to monitor delivery optimization. It would make sense to integrate the monitoring of DO and MCC into the endpoint manager. In addition, it would be helpful to get suggestions in which group do/mcc is not working well and something needs to be optimized.

    Endpoint Analytics would be the right place to collide the monitoring data with the other client data.

    Monitoring is the basis for building an efficient DO network.

  16. Microsoft 365 Apps update to newest version only

    The Monthly Enterprise Channel for Microsoft 365 updates receives two updates every patch Tuesday. One update for the previous months version (e.g. 2010), and the new version for the current month (e.g. 2011).
    Currently there is no way to distinguish between those versions in an ADR, this leads to the automated deployment of both versions if no one is on cleanup duty.

    Unfortunately the SCCM client is not intelligent enough to select the correct version for installation. My clients often end up installing the previous months update (e.g. 2010) before the one for the current month (e.g. 2011). Which causes…

  17. allow for software updates to be converted in to packages

    It will be helpful to allow sccm to convert software updates via a wizard into individual packages. This will help to deploy updates to clients that have difficulty reporting into wsus. or as an alternative to wufb, when enabled for comanagement.

  18. Expose third party update category in the Configuration Manager Console

    When syncing third party updates, consider recording category information for each update. Then that information could be exposed in the console, which would make searching, selecting and deploying/targeting third party updates easier. Especially for third party updates that are drivers, this would make the experience similar to "native" Drivers in OSD, where we can put drivers in (multiple) categories and use that information to better organize drivers and facilitate cleanup. Also, in the current absence of cleanup options, this would make clean up of third party drivers from WSUS easier as it would replace the need for administrator to parse…

  19. Expire third party updates when they no longer belong to any selected categories

    When a category is deselected from third party update catalog, updates belonging to that category remain in Configuration Manager but are no longer updated. Consider expiring and removing third party updates from Configuration Manager when they no longer belong to any categories selected in the third party catalog, similar to how Microsoft updates are expired and removed when their Product is deselected from the SUP component properties.

  20. Add cleanup of WSUS update files to WSUS maintenance

    Consider adding cleanup of WSUS update files on default SUP to WSUS maintenance feature/capability. This would be similar to running “Unneeded update files” option from WSUS Server Cleanup Wizard on default SUP and it would facilitate cleanup of expired/declined third party update content from WSUS content location. This option could be made available only when third party updates are enabled and/or there are published third-party updates. The option could be added to either existing WSUS Maintenance options or as a Third Party Updates option in the UI that becomes available with other third party update options when third party software…
