  1. Tool to find out what cause SCCM Client installation/Communication failure on Workstations

    In our environment SCCM Server installs client on discovered resource but they failed to install due to machine specific issue, could you prepare a tool which we can give it to floor support technician to run on machine which have SCCM Client issue or Installation failure, the tool should check for all prerequisites for client install also firewall issues like (WMI and File and Print sharing not allowed ) it should the issue with which it becomes easy to fix the underlying problem and get the sccm client successfully deployed

  2. Management Point Admin. It would be great to have a Management Point folder under Administration, with reports and MP health checks.

    We recently added a new MP to a trusted domain, and modified the boundaries, so client on that domain would only connect to that MP. We have no way of checking if this is working. A simple list of clients connected to which MP would be super helpful. We would be able to tell from a list which domains these clients are on and if they are connected to the correct MP. Also health info of the MPs, trolling through logs ain't fun. A quick easy look at MP health status to tell if something needs investigating.

  3. Support Center Advanced Log File Viewer Advanced Filtering

    It would be great if in the new Suppert Center Advanced Log File Viewer, there would be an option for Advanced Filters, when opening a log file, the filters load automatically and we dont need to load them manually everytime we open a log.
    Same as with the other buttons, that can be activated and deactivated.

  4. Ensure Tables v_ClientDownloadHistoryDP_BG and table ClientDownloadHistory have correct start time data with client.

    Currently the tables vClientDownloadHistoryDPBG and table ClientDownloadHistory have correct start time data with client. It does not match when a client downloads a package either from the DP our cloud DP and it's very hard to match the data. As per the escalation engineer, this is by design?

    Restart Components of Secondary Sites in the console through the component status and configuration manager service manager.
    This can be done on the Primary site but the secondary sites are not listed via the system status\component status.

  8. Add log file information when opening a log in CMTrace

    It would be great to see a tooltip or option in the cmtrace toolbar to get more details about a log file. For example when opening EPCtrlMgr.log I see a tooltip with the description of the log file "Records information about the syncing of malware threat information from the Endpoint Protection site system role server with the Configuration Manager database."

  11. Infrastructure health Dashboard

    I would love to see a infrastructure health dashboard. A go to location for making sure all MPs, SUPs, DBs etc. are healthy, rather than having to go through system statuses in the console. Perhaps have some tiles that show how many endpoints are hitting each MP, SUP as well.

  12. Support logging to a central database

    For large environments the ability to log to a central database. this would collective provide a central location for all server logs (DPs, MPs, ect..) deployments with a high server count (500 DPs), if\when there is a issue, the logs role over very quickly and the chance at catching the issue is not likely

  13. Software Center stand alone App

    Make Software Center available (as an App?) so that you can see exactly what is in Software Center for a remote machine. You launch the app on your technician PC, supply the machine name and user name and the Software Center shows up on the technician PC with exactly what the user sees. This would be very valuable for level 2 and service desk people to help users.

  15. Integrate Servicing Extension Tool

    It would be great if the Servicing Extension Tool released in 2014 would be integrated to the Current Branch Version. Separate installation still works for CB and show all Release KBs, new blogs, Site Versions and Client Targeting. See attached figure. So adding this stuff to current "Updates and Servicing" section as sub point would be fantastic. This helps also the community to see directly new KBs and information about issues etc. and they can faster react to fix it.

  16. Scheduled actions timeline

    Is it possible to add a way to view Config Manager Client scheduled actions as interpreting scheduler.log needs a manual when you factor in randomisation and deferals?

    Would be particularly helpful when troubleshooting policy evaluation and configuration items

  20. Add Remote Powershell option in the list of remote tools (same area as Remote desktop)

    Add the Remote Powershell option in the list when you right click on a device and hit Start and it gives you the List of Remote tools. By adding the Remote Powershell option and adding a Policy to configure and allow Remote powershell. This would allow for remote administration of a specific machine without having to use the other less secure methods of sending commands to a specific system.
