  1. Disconnected Secondary Site

    This would allow a Secondary Site to operate disconnected from the hierarchy for a set amount of time. During this disconnected state the Primary above it would not try to reach out to the Secondary (and vice versa) but would wait (similar to a prestage DP) for the interval specified before trying. Also the Secondary while disconnected would process its client information similar to a Primary and optimize the replication data so that when the connection was re-established there wouldn't be a huge backlog. This would allow hierarchies with devices that have limited or no connectivity for extended periods at…

    • Distribution point configuration status - reset alerts

      When looking at the status of my DPs in Distribution point configuration status there is a yellow alert that won't go away due to some error that occurred during dp migration, there is no package ID associated with it so I am unable to use any sql tricks or tools to make it go away. I suggest making an option via gui to "clear alerts" like I can do via Site status. please add this feature

      • Pre-Req Checks

        Perform permission checks on key locations where sccm will be setup. We had a problem experienced a few years ago where we had a "hash mismatch" error b/c the account I was using to perform the upgrade did not have permission to the install directory.

        https://sccmf12twice.com/2017/02/sccm-2012-r2-sp1-failed-upgrade/

        this problem is still possible in CB

        • Non Matching Custom Port DP Sharing/Migration Support

          Would like to see the product support moving from a 2012 hierarchy which is using custom ports for client communication and IIS bindings, into a CB hierarchy that is using default ports. My understanding is that both environments need to match exactly from a port perspective and we have over 400 remote DP's that will need to be removed manually from SCCM 2012, reimaged and then redeployed as remote DP in CB all over slow links. We have no internet connectivity options for a cloud DP scenario in these location (like China). This will significantly delay our migration globally to…

          • Allow install of State Migration Point role on client operating systems like Distribution Points

            It would be convenient if we could use PCs with client Windows OS (eg. Windows 7 or later) as User State Migration Points to backup and restore user data via USMT on remote locations, like we already do with Distribution Points. Given that, more or less this would imply the creation and management of a "simple" network share on the client, it could be relatively easy to implement and at the same time relieve us from the burden of using scripts etc. to configure and use USMT manually in our TSs.

            • MVP-Current Logged User History and Date/Time

              With the addition of the current logged user on 1806, it would be good to have a history of log on/log off and the date/time sccm identified it. similar with the inventory history.

              • Allow Preferred MPs with IBCM and CMG

                Not sure which category to put this in BUT I've come across a requirement to have both IBCM and CMG in place, at least temporarily anyway. It would be very helpful if we could use some kind of MP affinity or preferred MP between the IBCM MP and the CMG MP. Obviously the boundaries are ignored as this is internet based. A reg key change (or something even better) would suffice.

                  • Hotfix Rollback Option for the Microsoft SCCM CB Hotfixes Releases

                    Hello: Microsoft release monthly updates for Microsoft SCCM Current Branch and sometime hotfixes. The hotfix rollback installation for Microsoft SCCM is not straight forward because Microsoft SCCM CB hotfixes installation has own process and procedures which executed in the backend. So it better to have an option provided to rollback the Hotfix.. Ex: KB4339794....

                      • Servicing Telemetry / Version Upgrade

                        Air-gapped / never-connect, never-transfer networks are left with no method to perform any upgrades due to the requirement to submit telemetry data. The offline servicing method is not a valid method to perform these actions due to security regulations. No amount of assurances from the Microsoft team about the content of files will suffice.

                        Telemetry data would have to be plain-text, human-readable, and of an appropriate size to allow manual transcribing to permit this methodology to work. Even then, some information which Microsoft may seem as innocent / standard is likely to prevent export on some networks due to various…

                        • Upgrading Secondary Site Servers to 1802 failed due to prereqs detection

                          At a customer I've updated the Primary Site Server to 1802, this went without problems. The customer has 7 sec.sites. From ConfigMgr Console I started the upgrade which failed. In ConfigMgrSetup.log it stated that the SQLSysClrTypes.msi failed to install (see attachment). This prerequisite was already installed on the server. Also the 'Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Management Object’ was already installed. Which eventually gave the same issue.
                          I've worked around the issue by removing the MSI Installer registrations of these 2 prereqs in the registry. The upgrade was now able to end successful.
                          Somehow the Upgrade sequence doesn't check if these…

                          • No possibility to upgrade to 1802 on a secondary site with cd.latest

                            At a customer with 7 remote Secondary Sites, connected through a very small satellite WAN connection, we would like to schedule or manually start an upgrade to 1802 from the cd.latest instead of the Upgrade through ConfigMgr Console.
                            As this method will copy one GB of data our customer would like to have more control on when this data is sent over and when the upgrade should start. A manual or offline upgrade through the cd.latest would be helpful.
                            As far as I could find, the only possibility is through the Console.

                              • Expand Secondary Site Re-Assign Distribution Point to Migrate DP co-located on Secondary Site

                                See https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/9197001-ability-to-move-distribution-point-from-one-second

                                Currently, if the DP is co-located on a secondary site server, you are unable to move or re-assign the DP to a new site. Expand this capability to have the ability to move or migrate the DP to another site, specifically a primary site in this scenario.

                                • Support changing the name or domain of SCCM servers

                                  Currently it is unsupported to change the name or domain on any SCCM servers. However, there may be scenarios where a potential change in domain is required, such as a domain refresh or a company purchase/divestment. Right now it would mean having to rebuild the SCCM environment in the new domain, which can be extremely costly and time consuming.

                                    Always On Basic Availability Groups provide a high availability solution for SQL Server 2016 and SQL Server 2017 Standard Edition. A basic availability group supports a failover environment for a single database. It is created and managed much like traditional (advanced) Always On Availability Groups (SQL Server) with Enterprise Edition.

                                    ConfigMgr now requires read access to secondary replicas, which is only available in the Enterprise Edition of SQL Server.

                                    • One, Single, graphical dashboard to monitor and manage WAN bandwidht usage by SCCM in complex environment

                                      every SCCM admin in the world knows it generates a lot of traffic, especially if uptades and software deployment are not continuously tuned and properly configured. A centralized dashboard to manage Bandwidht usage between site servers, between clients and servers and to apply QoS and traffic shaping policies would be a great improvement in a complex environment.

                                      • Add custom Tables in Datawarehouse sync process

                                        Would be great if customers can add (through UI) other tables in datawarehouse synchronization process. So that they can consume data from datawarehouse DataBase.

                                        • Migration: View only objects that have not been migrated

                                          When running the migration wizard to migrate SCCM 2012 to SCCM CB (1710) I would like there to be an option in the 'select objects to migrate screen' to 'show only non-migrated objects' so you can easily find objects which have not been migrated yet.

                                          This is useful to find objects that may have failed a previous migration and you want to re-run them.
