  1. CMG - Enhanced Monitoring (Security / Azure Log Analytics)

    I have been asked by our Security team about monitoring CMG for failed authentications.
    As it is not supported to make changes to the CMG VMs, it is not possible for us to ingest logs into our Log Analytics workspace in Azure.
    Could some configuration options be added to ConfigMgr (when deploying / updating CMG) so that an Azure Log Analytics workspace could be selected?
    or is there any other way we could configure + collect IIS logging?

  2. Do not require connections from Site Server to CMG for content distribution

    To implement a CMG Microsoft requires the connectivity to Azure from Service Connection Point (SCP) role as well as CMG Connection Point (CMG CP) one.

    From security perspective, it would be wise to implement both roles in DMZ to protect the ConfigMgr core functionality.

    However, the content distribution requires Azure connectivity from the Site Server itself: as per Microsoft Docs, "The site server needs to create outbound connections to the Microsoft cloud."

    Ask: move content distribution flow to CMG away from the site server to SCP or CMG CP to enable DMZ scenarios

  3. Cloud Management Gateway report - List all CMG enabled devices past and present

    Add a client status column to client views which indicates whether a device was successfully enabled for internet management via the CMG in the past. Existing views indicate devices currently online from internet as opposed to all devices enabled to date.

  4. Cleanup Microsoft Connected Cache left over components when you untick the box on the Distribution Point

    There needs to be a more robust cleanup after the Microsoft Connected Cache is "un-ticked" from the Distribution Point or at least documentation on how properly remove the remaining components i.e. the DONIC GUID folder and IIS components.

  5. Enable SCCM co-management without the need to use the Global Administrator account.

    Enable co-management without the need to use the Azure AD Global Administrator as the account to authenticate with in Azure AD. A less privilaged delegated account should be an option to perform this action. This includes the secret key reset which can only be performed with the use of the Global Administrator account. This creates an administration overhead as typically access to the Global Administrator account is restricted, so engagement with other teams is needed to perform both tasks. I understand that the initial set up is a one time requirement but this is not the case for the secretā€¦

  6. Add a way to specify the Management Point (or CMG) to report during task sequence execution

    During a remote TS execution can be useful to force to report to a specific management point or cloud management gateway. This way administrator can force TS status reporting to CMG even if the client is connected to on-prem MP via VPN. This will also solve reporting issues caused by a reboot step associated to user initiated VPN connections.

  7. Remove "Tenant Attach" as a mandatory step during the 2102 upgrade wizard.

    Could you please not make tenant attach as a mandatory step during the 2102 upgrade. I'm currently running a test environment with some virtual servers and I don't think that in order to upgrade I need to create a trial sub in Azure with Intune licenses.

  8. CMG monitoring

    Have a way to know if the CMG service is running other than going in the console in Administration - Cloud Services - CMG and checking if the status is Ready or stopped.

    We need to be alerted and/or have the ability to see in monitoring tools like scom that it's not Ready like all others services in configMgr

  9. cmg ipv6 support

    Support ipv6 for CMG.

    We have a ipv6-only data center and users networks. We do not want to use 6to4 services

  10. Tenant Attach multiple device selection

    Have the possibility to multi-select devices, like we can do in ConfigMgr, mainly for CMPivot scenarios when helpdesk would like to check for more than one device without having to use the stand-alone CMPivot tool.

  11. Ability to collect client logs via Tenant Attach

    It would be great if we could, like we can do in the console, to collect client logs in Mem/Tenant Attach so that helpdesk technicians can do this without using the console

  14. Apply Device Name Template for Co-Managed Environment.

    The Device Name template is currently available if you're in a co-managed environment, it's only available for AAD Intune managed only environment.

    I'm aware we can write a PowerShell script to set the computer name, but it gets a bit ugly when you have to delete the Intune Computer Object from AAD and then delete the Intune created object from AD after it syncs. Then rename the computer with a powershell script which requires a reboot and then you have to wait for the Intune and Configmgr to sync.

    Please make this template option available for co-managed environments.

  15. Switch CMG connection point without forcing client to connect to ConfigMgr site

    When replacing our CMG with a new deployment, many clients on the outside was no longer able to communicate home without having contact with the ConfigMgr site.

    SCCM should send the new cmg details with a client push when the gateway connection point changes, so that clients remain online.. instead of waiting for them to return home, and in some cases, forcing them to connect home to be updated. Creates much manual work from IT.

  16. Make ConfigMgr devices (Co-mgmt/Tenant attach) synched to MEM console support scope tags

    Devices that are synched to MEM console from ConfigMgr, for example by Tenant attach, doesnt support scope tags. We got a lot of admins that are just supposed to see their own devices with a specific scope tag, but now they also see all ConfigMgr devices, since the devices doesnt get the "Default" scope tag per default.
    Either implement support for scope tags on those devices, or assign them the default scope tag automatically.

  17. Allow Peer Cache with CMG

    CMG doesn't provide any Peer Cache sources. This make sense, if the client is located on the Internet. But if the client is located on Intranet, then CMG should returns Peer Cache sources.

    Reasons for this is that in many branches the Internet connection would be with higher bandwidth and cheaper, than using internal MPLS.

    If you today want a boundary with CMG preferred for content location, and you still want peering, than you also need to add an internal MP. This also gives the negative effect, that inventory would also go over internal network, instead of going to theā€¦

  18. Show the expiration date of the CMG certificate

    When you open the properties of CMG, the expiration date of the CMG certificate should be shown.

    And there should be a console notification if the expiration of the certificate is in less than 7 days.

  19. Co-Management Bug - Windows Update for Business & Feature Upgrade's

    As per Microsoft documentation,

    While Windows 10 feature updates remain in public preview, when co-managing devices with Configuration Manager and Intune, there is a limitation where feature update policies may not immediately take effect, causing devices to update to a later feature update than configured in Intune. This limitation will be removed with a future update to Configuration Manager.

    When is this bug scheduled to be resolved?

    We have recently moved the Windows Update workload to Intune and now have to pause the feature upgrades for each WUFB ring every 35 days to prevent devices from randomly upgrading to theā€¦

  20. Combine the Co-Management Properties / Statging tabs.

    The tab for Co management is slightly confusing. The workloads tab and Staging tab should be combined. It will make more sense if you know that when selecting Pilot Intune just to the right is the collection and browse button to pick the pilot collection.
