  1. Automatic Client Upgrade: Allow option to ignore maintenance windows

    It is great that client upgrades now respect maintenance windows per the "Automatic Client upgrades - respect defined maintenance windows" feedback. However, we now are dealing with the opposite issue.

    We have very narrow maintenance windows defined for our servers and as such 75% of our clients were out of date 2 months post upgrade. It would be great for a toggle on the upgrade configuration so we can choose the behavior for the upgrade to respect the windows or not, similar to a normal application deployment. This way we would not need to manually push the client upgrade outā€¦

  2. FIX Bitlocker Recovery if, PXE boot is in the first place.

    The abortpxe.com is somehow "untrusted" by the Bitlocker boot process. If UEFI changes the boot order to PXE boot, Bitlocker Recovery comes along.

  3. "Maintenance Windows" for Client Auto Upgrade feature

    We often found that SCCM Client is not working because SCCM client was corrupt during client.msi installation was failed due to external OS shutdown. OS shutdown during upgrade may cause corrupt SCCM client but we cannot set "Maintenance Windows" for Client Auto Upgrade in current SCCM version and so it is difficult to avoid this situation. We want to add "Maintenance Windows" for Client Auto Upgrade.

  4. Pre-Post Script to Client Install

    Allow a custom script Before & After client installation.

    Example Uses:
    - Install Windows Dedup feature, create vhds, mount vhdx as folder, dedup vhdx, reference vhdx folder as sccmcache directory.
    - Force policy collection evaluation, delay x minutes, force policy refresh.

  5. Client deployment flexibility

    Please add a feature to be able to auto install the agent by device type. ie, servers, workstations, thin clients. Currently this is an all or nothing type thing, it would be nice to make it more granular.

  6. Change Client Cache to work like DP SCCMContentLib folder

    Some deployed Applications and/or Packages during their execution modify their working directory (a log file created, new files created/deleted, etc...)
    When that happens, the Peer Cache feature fails because when other devices get a copy they immediately discard it since the copy is distinct from the one defined at the SCCM server. The error message "The hash value is not correct" is registered by the devices that downloaded the modified copy.

    I think the SCCM Client Cache should work like the "SCCMContentLib" folder existing at the Distribution Points, creating a hashed, compressed file for every package file.

  7. No more ccmdata.bak

    Please, for the love of all that is holy, stop creating the ccmdata.bak file and storing guids in a directory that is **** near inaccessible on citrix machines, or at least give me an installation option to specify not to do this. I don't see any benefit to this at all, and you end up getting sccm inexperienced Citrix admins installing clients with duplicate guids even though you remove certs, ini files and other identifying information.

  8. I would like to see devices that are online, even if they don't have a client installed. IE, they are pingable.

  13. Pending restart not detected with ccm client upgrade

    When the CM client is upgraded on machines, sometimes there is a code 7 at the end of the install which means 'reboot needed' but in the console the pending restart is still on 'No'.
    Isn't it possible to reflect this reboot needed in the console 'pending restart' variable ?

  14. Recovery partition

    When creating a recovery partition with the task sequence you only have the option of 1% to place at the end for succesfull creat a recovery partition.

    For a disk of 256 mb its 2.5 gb recovery
    512 mb -> 5gb recovery

    Please make ik possible to choose the space we want, suggestion of 1 gb as the larger the disk the larger the waste of space is.

  15. Improve Client Upgrade Mechanism

    There is SCCM CB 1806 (5.0.8692.1509) with the update "kb4462978" in the console installed.
    When using automatic upgrade and package deployment to provide CM client version upgrades,
    From the distribution point, although "client.msi" can be acquired, if "configmgr 1806-client-kb4462978-x64.msp" can not be acquired for some reason, a scenario occurs that results in "5.00.8698.1008" version did.
    If the MSP file can not be obtained, CM client version upgrade is expected to fail, but the result is not "5.00.869. 1509" but the "5. 08. 692. 1008" version.
    Success itself is a problem. The administrator misunderstands that the version upgrade of the CMā€¦

  16. Easier to implement other Custom OSD menus

    Easier to implement other Custom OSD menus. I have written a new front end (We deploy offline to classified systems with specific configurations). There is very little information on how to implement your own custom OSD. I built one in PowerShell Studio but have yet to implement. Still trying to figure how to do it. Current GUI is limited.

  18. Switching Connection Type should be easier

    As far as I know, the only way to change a clients connection type to "Always Internet", "Always Intranet" or to a switching Connection Type (Currently Intranet/Currently Internet), is by re-installing the client. How nice would it be if we could control this setting without having to re-install the client.

  19. Allow maintenance windows to be targeted for ONLY client upgrades

    Allow maintenance windows to be targeted for ONLY client upgrades. In 1810, you can target a MW at all deployments, software updates or task sequences. It would be nice to have an option for client upgrades as well. That way you don't have to shuffle groups and software updates advertisements around when its time to upgrade.

  20. The ability to set the Client Push installation syntax from the client push wizard.

    Currently the install syntax needs to be set before you initiate the client push request. If your pushing to multiple domains or forests, you need to adjust your syntax, then go back and select your targets to push to. It would be nice if you could specify the install syntax for the client push during the client push wizard.
