  1. Show Percentage in Content Status - View Status

    When viewing content distribution status for a large package I can hover over the asset detail description and see X% of the sending has already completed, it would be nice to have this near the pie chart, or somewhere more visible

  2. Driver Content De-Duplication on Package Source & Content Library

    Today, we all spend a lot of time and efforts managing the drivers. I believe it is (Almost perfect)ConfigMgr's biggest area of improvement as of today. There should be some kind of automation provided in the way the drivers are downloaded, stored, imported, de-duplicated & decommissioned. Like Software Updates. Now, there are a few community solutions which do a great job of automating lots of stuff but the challenge of minimizing driver footprint on storage & DB still remains.

  3. auto clean expire updates from sccm cache

    We have a setting to expire Superseded updates after X days. Clients need auto remove cache files that are expired? Patches, Defender def cleanup. When they update policy and software update scan, the machine knows the update is expired, it cannot install, clean this from the SCCM Cache,

  4. Separate content within the application model

    Right now, the application is definitely decent and getting better. A major improvement over some other products within the same space. I do however, think that content assignment should be waaaaay better with this simple change.

    Applications have Deployment Types, and DeploymentTypes may or may not have content associated with them. If you create two Deployment Types that share the same content, it is confusing because the content appears as if it is separate (Based on the Content ID), although it is the same (Because of the way SCCM handles content > Single Instance File Storage)

    I think it should…

  5. Configmgr community access for non-Internet connected systems

    I manage systems that cannot be connected to the Internet. I would like to have a way to view and download Configmgr Community resources from a Internet connected system and transfer it to the non-Internet connected system.

  6. Content Status in Peer Cache Sources

    We need to see which content is in cache of peer cache source computers. It is possible with SQL query, but there is no builtin screen/menu in console for that. It will ease the management of peer cache source computers in boundary groups without DP

    It can be like 'Content Status' menu for only for Peer Cache Source Computers.

  7. Bind MP & DP to boundary

    Make it optional wether a client should use normal logic to identify MP and DP or hardcode which site system(s) to use.

    Boundary A : normal behavior
    Boundary B : MP = Server1 DP=Server3

  8. FileReplication using Cloud DP

    MPLS/ P2P lines usually have less bandwidth then WAN lines.
    it will be great benefit to add option for Primary site/ CAS to update Cloud DP, and configure other DP to pull the data from the Cloud DP instead of replication over MPLS lines.

  9. DP Priority via GUI

    Please make the Priority setting on DPs a configurable setting via the UI.

    Our DPs follow a different naming convention based on their location. If we update a package it adds the DPs to the queue in alphabetical order. Some DP’s are more important than others but they are added last only because of the name.

  11. Content Version Rollback - Rollback Package Contents to Previous Version

    From time to time, we need to rollback Content to a previous version. This is all done manually, and actually bumps the Content Version and forces us to redistribute the content to both DPs & Clients. When we have to do this with large packages (Upgrade Media), it causes a lot of extra network traffic.

    I'd like the ability to Rollback from version N to N-1, literally have the content version go from 6 to 5.

    Challenges: This would mean you'd have to keep N-1 of the Content on the DPs (Dedup would make this almost a non-issue)

    Pros: Currently…

  12. Package (compress) content before send to client

    A lot of applications use hundreds, maybe thousands of files (e.g. Paint shop pro, oracle client, Autocad) of just a few KB / MB.

    For those applications sometimes you have to wait a long time before the application package is transfered to the client.

    Becouse of those large number of small files, there is not a large TCP window size, therefore the transfer could take longer than necessary.

    i would like to see a feature that packages on a DP are "packaged" (zip, rar or whatsoever) in larger blocks (e.g. 100MB split files) before any client will received it

  13. SCCM: Allow SCCM to ignore files or folders, especially .git?

    I'd like to be able to tell SCCM to ignore a .git folder in the content folder for a specific (or all) application. This would allow our group to use Git to manage changes to our application installers but not have SCCM pick up the Git database files, etc.

  15. AD Forest Discovery: More information for subnets

    When doing an AD Forest Sync with subnet import enabled. Could SCCM also import the subnet location and description attributes so when looking at boundaries in the console we have more detailed information?

  17. Fix out of sync content on the Distribution Point

    At times, the distribution point will complain that there is a mismatch between the package list on the file system and the package list in WMI.

    The warning presented is as:

    Failed to retrieve the package list on the distribution point.
    Or the package list in the content library doesn't match the one in WMI. Review smsdpmon.log for more information about this failure.

    See attached error dialog.

    The fix is to manually force the WMI list to match the content lib list.

    I'm unsure what causes them to become mismatched, but it would be nice if MS could either fix…

  20. Redistributing Failed Content

    In the Content Status node of the Monitoring workspace, add an option to allow all failed content to be redeployed without having to go into each package/application and selecting redeploy. When a site has numerous packages that have failed to deploy, having the option to easily redeploy all of the failed content (or specific packages) at the same time would very useful.
