  1. Task Sequences - Columb for number of deployments

    When in the Configuration Manager console and looking at a folder of Task Sequences (not a specific TS), it would be handy to have a column to show the amount of deployments each TS in the view has - the same as Applications.

    Our organisation constantly updates Task Sequences for deploying OS Upgrades, which are left as enabled but expired and placed in a folder named "Retired". This is to preserve the deployment information in case of future review and/or record keeping. As such, it would be handy to have a column to show the number of deployments a TS…

    • Need to enable the option to run "Client Notification" options for devices under Deployment Monitoring Status Node

      Under Deployment Monitoring Status Node especially while checking a deployment status we get to see error category node and double clicking the same would provide us the list of machines under that category. We need to enable the client notifications under this just like we run client notification actions on collections or devices inside a collection.

      • Can you put in all the fail safes when creating a deployment to all apps not just for deploying a Task Sequence?

        Have the fail safe that are built in to when deploying a Task Sequence come up when setting up any deployment. Such as the check boxes when you are going over 100 targets in a collection that pops up, ect..
        Thx

        • Add Summary Statistics to Deployment Status View

          In the main Deployments tab when you select a deployment, it shows a summary of the Completion Statistics [img1]. When viewing the status of that deployment, the pie chart remains but the statistics of each status can no longer be quickly seen [img2]. One has to go into each status tab to view the numbers. -cheers

          • Try Again button in Configuration manager Deployment monitoring

            After deployment to a certain machine gets an error that can be dealt with it stays in error tab even after the error cause is fixed. It would be nice to force another try of deployment to a certain machine from Configuration manager.
            i.e Deployment to PC_A fails due to insuficient disk space.
            User free some space on the designated PC.
            PC_A still stays in failed tab in deployment (waits for another automatical try?)
            Admin sees the failed deployment for PC_A in Deployment monitoring "error' tab.
            Admin click on failed deployment of PC_A and chooses 'try again' to force SCCM…

            • Clients to find closer MP, SUP, DP by network / ping latency (No Boundary Mgmt)

              Current methods of ADSite, IPSUbnet, IP Ranges are for larger enterprise pose hectic admin hours and pose for slippages, impacting software, patch deployment compliance. Would it be a good idea to tell SCCM client to locate its MP, SUP, DP etc servers by ping / network latency checks so it find a closer one...this saves us with no boundary management at all... some ifs, buts which can be addressed but overal lgains overweigh them

              • Outstanding Windows updates

                Show windows updates outstanding with the computername and allow right click and install missing update.

                currently its a painful and very time consuming excercise checking to see what update isn't installed, creating a collection, adding computer to collection and deploying update package.. we got over 6000 devices so can imagine the time and effort to manage monthly updates.
                Kaspersky got it right but company doesn't want to pay the licensing cost

                • Enable Alerts function for 'Available' deployments

                  Currently you can only configure a compliance alert for a deployment that is Required, this option should be enabled for Available deployments as well for those of us who want to use it.

                  There are various scenarios where this might be useful, you may simply want an email notification if no-one is bothering to use software you made available after a month to save you having to check.
                  Or due to some internal reason you may not be able to enforce restarts on particular machines and have tasked staff to do it manually, and want a notification if this hasn't…

                  • SEARCH FOR "ALREADY INSTALLED" APPLICATION BEFORE CHECK FOR REQUIREMENTS

                    I have an Application that need so much space, so i set a requirement of 2500 Mb free to start deployment. There can be a situation where the Deployment starts because i have 3000Mb free, AFTER the deployment ends succesfully the residual free space is lower than 2500 Mb. In that case if i monitor the Deploy i see "requirement not met" for this server instead a "Success".. that's wrong!
                    SEARCH FOR "ALREADY INSTALLED" APPLICATION MUST BE DONE BEFORE CHECK FOR REQUIREMENTS!!

                      • Add Description to Distribution Point Configuration Status Screen

                        We use the description field to describe where the DP is located in the world, due to our naming convention not containing the location in the asset name . When performing monitoring I'd like to see the description field from the Administration\Distribution Points pane carried through to the Monitoring\Distribution Status\Distribution Point Configuration Status. This would make it easy to see which locations DP has an issue rather then switching to the Administration pane.

                            • It would be nice to have a more direct/quicker route to a list of the infected computers when we receive a notification about malware.

                              When we receive notifications of malware infections, it's at least a few clicks before we see what has actually been infected. Having this information displayed immediately could help reduce remediation time and potentially prevent an infection from having the time to spread more. This would be especially helpful if we could see more relevant details in the e-mail notification as well.

                                  • Content source priority

                                    With many organizations using few, or single high AD sites, the content source priority is less useful in a lot of situations. As an example: if an organization is spread out across multiple Geo's, and multiple locations within a Geo. They use one AD site per Geo.

                                    In this situation an organization could not ever utilize Peer Cache as regardless of SCCM boundaries, the AD site takes precedence.

                                    What would be useful to have is the ability to turn on/off AD sites as being used to find peer sources. And as an extention, the ability to use Peer Cache in…

                                    • Ability to create custom alerts

                                      I would like to have the ability to create custom alerts or have more canned alerts to configure in Configuration Manager CB. Having the ability to be alerted in the event there is an unauthorized deployment would be nice. Also site security alerts if there is an attempt to access higher rights within Configuration Manager CB.

                                      • i could able to pull or copy the machine

                                        In Deployment monitoring on the "Asset details" column

                                        i am able to select single pc to see the error details but unable to copy the content from the console its read-only i believe probably you should make some changes
                                        so, we can live information can be copied in detailed to excel or either live import present data to have it in single sheet as bulk.

                                        so my suggest is :- if we get an option enabled to copy whole should not be read-only the information from the Asset details column
                                        it may be falls under "Compliant\In-progress\Error\Unknown" column

                                        so, with this…

                                        • Ability to delete a deployment from the Monitoring node

                                          It would great to be able to right-click a deployment from Deployments in the Monitoring node ad have the option to delete that deployment. It's a great spot for it since all deployments are listed there.
