  1. Show logged on users under asset details when looking at deployments

    When looking at a deployment status, under the Asset details it would be really nice to show the last logged on user. There is a "user" column that never seems to work for me.

  2. Allow the "Configuration Manager Properties" window to be resized.

    Allow the "Configuration Manager Properties" window to be resized.
    Also if your working on it, go ahead and build it into windows 10/11 settings window.

  3. Stabilize sending of status messages during in-place upgrade (IPU) task sequence in a mixed intranet (VPN) / internet (CMG) scenario

    We've opened a MS case because a lot of status messages are lost during our in-place upgrade task sequence and this makes it really hard to monitor our deployments. A CMG is in place and acts also as a distribution point. The clients are configured to prefer the management point from the boudaries and the CMG is part of the VPN boundary. During the task sequence the client will/can switch multiple times from intranet (vpn) to internet (cmg). This seems to be the cause of the lost status messages. We were told by Microsoft that this is not a tested/supported…

  4. Update deployment status summary to include details for clients that have downloaded an available task sequence deployment with pre-cache

    When reviewing the deployment status summary this does not indicate which clients have downloaded an "available" task sequence with the pre-cache option enabled. The only way to identify these clients/events are by reviewing status messages for the deployment.

  5. include additional software distribution settings

    I would like to see in a setting that would allow control of the amount of concurrent packages you can send to each DP under a site.

    example my primary site has 61 DPs, I am fine sending 3-5 packages to each DP concurrently to each the, if I increase the amount of packages to say 25 and have a new DP it tries to send 25 packages to the DP and takes forever and can cause issues issues completing normal package replication of other DPs.

  7. Need a solution to dynamically check all cloud endpoint connectivity for AAD/Intune/DO/MCC

    In multiple MEM engagements this always comes up for hybrid work:

    • Working with the infosec/network/firewall teams to ensure all the "security bus stops" have the appropriate exceptions in place (inclusive of TLS/SSL inspection/decryption exceptions) and running through a test plan iteratively until we have success. Then if any cloud endpoints change (URLs/IPs), we have to go through that playbook all over again. I realize there are some great solutions for automating Office 365 cloud endpoint checks and exceptions. What can we do here to help the MEM community be more successful and get greater adoption?

    ......

    On the Windows 10…

  8. Distribute Content - WhatIf

    It would be great to be able to Select a Task Sequence, Package, Application, OS Image etc and Distribute Contents with WhatIf functionality.

    Example:

    Newly created Windows Client Upgrade Task Sequence has been created that has Package references of ‘potentially’ 20 Gb in required disk space (OS Image, Drivers, Office, Language Packs) and we would like to Distribute this to some 30+ DPs, all varying in Free Disk Space (minimum being 14 Gb)

    The feature of ‘single-instance store’ is great and expect not to require nearly the ‘potential’ 20Gb of free Disk Space, but we do not know the true…

  9. Give an option for Preferred DP within a boundary group

    We use branchcache a lot in our environment. It would be helpful for us to have a the same sort of ordering inside a boundary group as we do for client settings - assigning a rank to which DPs (or MPs / SUPs really, but my main concern is DPs) are selected first and then 2nd, 3rd, etc.

  10. Pull DP: Add Timeout to BITS Job to Eliminate Stuck BITS Jobs

    I love Pull Distribution Points. Love, love, love, just love the little buggers. If they had cheeks you bet your bottom dollar I’d pinch them. The combination of dedupe, LEDBAT, and Pull DPs is just brilliance.

    There is however, one major drawback. At scale (100s of Pull DPs) you are pretty much guaranteed that at any given time a handful of them are ‘stuck on stupid’. There will be a huge backlog of jobs waiting to transfer but the Pull DP is not downloading content and refuses to process new jobs.

    In almost every case this boils down to BITS…

  11. Deployment status shows deployment run time column

    It would be nice to see a column in the deployment status in Monitoring that showed the deployment run time for each device. It currently only shows the Deployment Time which is the same for every device in a deployment to a particular collection.

  12. Allow intranet device to use Primary Site Server for MP, CMG for DP

    This would be useful for district sites. It would help reduce on-prem DPs and replace them with the CMG. This could be set in the boundary group settings.

  14. Pause an active deployment

    Sometimes we have to quickly stop an app deployment from taking place for one reason or another. The only way to accomplish this is to delete the deployment along with any immediate statistics regarding who the deployment may have affected. It would be great if an app deployment could be paused or disabled (similar to what can be done with a SUG deployment).

  15. Peer Cache

    We are currently having an issue with Peer Cache where it will reuse folders in the Cache directory causing a Hash Mismatch error.

    We suggest either Peer Cache checks to make sure a folder doesn't already exist before it downloads or we suggest that the Task sequence does fail and just moved on to the next Super Peer.

  16. Ability to run Content Library Cleanup Tool on Main Site Server

    Unlike with Remote DP's, I have been informed that there is not an option to cleanup content on the main site server. Please provide this option in a future release. Thank you.

  18. Content Library - built in GUI to move content library files to a drive or specific folder

    There shoud be a function that let me see the size of the content library and if there is more than one storage place for Content library files we need a function to move the content fully or in parts to a destination we can select in a simple GUI.

  19. Add a 'Deployments Tab' to the individual Device view

    With the past few releases we've seen the addition of multiple tabs to the individual Device view, such as 'Client Settings.' I think it would be great if there was a 'Deployments' Tab here where you could see all Deployments associated with that Device and its real-time Compliance Status.

    Consider the following. I'm imaging 5 machines to add to a Lab and each machine gets 20-30 Application Deployments before it is ready for Production. In that case I either have to open up all those Applications in the Monitoring Node, run Summarization, and keep scrolling through all of that. Or…

  20. PullDP Configuration Reporting - Include SQL information from "PullDPMap" in "vPullDPFullMap"

    Would be great if the SQL information from "PullDPMap" could be included in "vPullDPFullMap" to enable a helpful Reporting for PullDP Configuration.

    For example to get a report to find out which Pull DP has which Source Pull DP set and what is the priority (see Examples in the Attachments)
