  1. Search Child Task Sequences from Main

    Task Sequence search and child task sequences are great, but a heavily modularized task sequence makes search significantly less useful. I would love to see the child task sequence meta data loaded when the main is loaded so that it could be included in search information. Perhaps the child task sequence is shown in read only mode in the data pane when the child task sequence is clicked so one could identify where the search information has been found in the child task sequence.

  2. Include a Built-In Register Autopilot Hardware Hash Step for Task Sequences

    Include a built-in task sequence step that registers a device in Autopilot. The step would have a 2 radio buttons. The first radio button would choose a tenant that you already configured for co-management with a drop down box to choose from already configured tenants. Just in case you have more than one tenant. The second radio button would have a space for you to manually enter your tenant information.
    Also include a dropdown to choose the Autopilot deployment profile.
    The current included Autopilot task sequence points to a tenant and deployment profile but does not actually register the device.

  3. Peer PXE or Similar Feature

    In 2017 or so a feature was added to tech preview that allowed machines in disparate offices without a Distribution Point to PXE boot from configured peers.

    This feature has never made it to release in the 6 years since.

    Peer PXE or another similar feature (WDS-less PXE from a Win10, non-DP machine) would be great in an environment with many small offices where you do not want to traverse the WAN to PXE, nor do you want to support a full Win10 Distribution Point at the site.

  4. SMSTS Log - Variable to not log certificate checks

    The SMSTS Log is busy, and much of it in our HTTPS only environment is filled with Certificate checks. I'd like to turn that off.
    Perhaps have it off by default, unless debug logging is enabled? or set a variable "SMSTS_NoCertCheck" and it won't log that stuff.

    My log rolls over before an entire TS is done!

  5. Make sure OSD checks Application Conditions before flagging content not available on DP

    We are using a child Task Sequence to deploy applications to 4 different "environments". One of them only has a few of the apps, so the rest of the apps are not available on that specific DP/DP Group. Even if I have set conditions for the application Groups and/or steps, that this particular base TS should not use most of the apps/packages, the OSD fails on content not found on DP for packages the base TS should not need, but that are included in the Child Task Sequence.

  6. Allow TSDebugMode to run as SYSTEM, removing requirement to elevate

    Provide OPTION to allow the TS Debugger to run as SYSTEM instead of prompting for elevation. I get the security implications, but provide us the ability to choose.

    This would also allow you to enable the Command Prompt option via the Debugger when in the Full OS, unlike now where it is not available.

    Perhaps add another Variable TSDebugModeSYSTEM

    I really like the debugger an use it all the time, but due to that limitation, I still have to leverage ServiceUI and other "tricks" to be able to do testing and debugging of our Task Sequences that Start in theā€¦

  7. In-place upgrade Task sequence should check if actual OS upgrade has completed

    Scenario:
    1) We are performing in-place upgrade from 1709 to 1903,1909, 20H2.
    2) We have created In-place upgrade task sequence and deploying OS upgrade package using CB 2010.
    3) Client machine is getting the TS and executing.
    4) It reboots the system to upgrade the OS.
    5) After reboot while OS is still upgrading, due to any driver issue or any other reason, window rolls back the upgrade.
    6) We login to the system again and see it on older version 1709 , as expected.

    7) We check the status of task sequence on Software Center and it shows asā€¦

  8. Allow Feature Update in a Task Sequence to use the Computer Restart settings from Client Settings

    In my environment, they require a large reboot window for anything that requires a reboot. In my testing of the new feature to deploy a Feature Update via a Task Sequence, it seems that you can only use the "Computer Restart" function in the Task Sequence that can only be set to 9999 seconds or set the SMSTSRebootDelay to what I need, but then you're stuck with the Reboot countdown window up top and can't minimize it.

  9. Task Sequence variable during Apply Driver Package

    Inside the Apply Driver Package step, it would be useful to be able to insert a variable in order to allow the driver to be applied dynamically based on the vendor or model.

  11. Run as High Performance Power Plan needs to be able to modify the plan settings appropriately so devices do not sleep.

    The Run as High Performance Power Plan option for task sequences does not work properly. Even though it does set the current plan to High Performance, the default values under this plan for standby-timeout-ac (10 minutes) and standby-timeout-d (4 minutes) which is not adequate for most tasksequences to complete before a device sleeps. This option needs to be able to configure the plan to not sleep or hibernate in addition to setting it as the current plan. I've attached a copy of the High Performance power plan for Windows 10 1909 for reference. This power plan is mostly default exceptā€¦

  12. Pre-Provision Bitlocker causes Winload.EFI BSOD

    We hava a situation with some of our older SSD and Spinning Disk devices where the Apply OS Image corrupts an in progress pre provision bitlocker volume FDE.

    We fixed this by adding a pause to the TS in-between these steps.

    Can you add logic to check if disk has space to write out the wim in either DISM or TS logic to prevent this from happening.

  13. Use TS Variable in Step name

    Status message viewer is great for troubleshooting. Sometimes it would be great to use a TS variable in the Step Name, then you can see values really quick in the log.

    For example create a "Run command line" that does nothing, but the name of the step provide valuable information about something, like if the Pc is connected to VPN.

  14. Allow Remote Control in Client Provisioning Mode

    Would be nice to allow remote control while in provisioning mode during OSD. Currently during some extreme cases we disable provisioning mode and this seems to work but has a lot of risk with timing/race conditions trying to do things outside of the Task Sequence before its ready.

    Bring remote control to the provisioning mode!

  15. Allow a local user (admin or not an admin) to be added in a Task Sequence

    It is possible to *** a local user/group to a local machine during OSD using the net command or PowerShell but it is impossible to do this so that the password is encrypted. PowerShell requires the key so it has to be made on the same machine but that's not always possible. Net command requires the password in plain text, also not desirable.

  17. Task sequence deployment to run when no user is logged on.

    It would be great to have the same user experience conditions available in Application deployments for Task Sequence deployments. That way we could deploy required in-place upgrades of Win10 that will install once the user logs off and not rely on the user to start the Available deployment themselves.

  18. ipv6 relay encapsulation support

    This will probably be very low prio for most people, but here goes. when SCCM PXE is done in an IPv6 network, where DHCP is handled over a dhcp relay, PXE boot may fail with error "invalid packet structure".
    cause analysis led to the following statement:

    "Your relay agent is encapsulating the original DHCPv6 packet in a relay-forward message (12). This is currently not supported by the SCCM PXE server. The SCCM PXE server currently only supports bare forwarded DHCPv6 packets.

    DHCPv6 message 12 is a quite tricky for the current SCCM PXE server because you can have nested message12s."

  19. Interactive "Run Powershell Script"

    When you use the "Run Powershell Script" step (Enter a PowerShell script in my case), it always adds "-noninteractive".
    This is problematic when trying to show an interactive GUI.
    Workaround is to have the ps1-file in a package and run it from a "Run Command Line" step.

  20. TS Manager is not supporting resume of Content Download upon manual/forced restart leading to partial caching of content

    TS Manager is not supporting resume of Content Download upon manual/forced restart leading to partial caching of content. Noticed an issue where during downloading of boot image or any other package associated with the TS, if the system was restarted or shutdown by user or by any other means, the ccmcache folder is updated with the partial content. When the system is up again and the TS gets executed, it assumes the content is downloaded properly. Contacted Microsoft Premier Support and this seemed to a design limitation where I stringly feel it is a bug than a design limitation. Howā€¦
