  1. Explanation of the future of MDM support in SCCM

    Hybrid MDM support is deprecated in SCCM. Details of this deprication is here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/mdm/understand/hybrid-mobile-device-management
    If you are a Hybrid customer, Microsoft is very happy to work with you to make your migration to Intune seamless/painless. Please reach out to Microsoft support.

    While Hybrid support for MDM is going away, SCCM will innovate together with Intune, and will continue to grow closer together. More capabilities and better together scenarios will be coming soon.

  2. Explanation on SCCM linux/unix client deprecation

    Why was the SCCM Linux/Unix client deprecated. Some SCCM customers use and depend on this functionality. Why is it no longer being invested in?

  3. Run powerShell Script task sequence step to set variable appends to existing value instead of replace

    When using the new Run Powershell script step in a task sequence in CM 1902 and you use the "Output to a task sequence variable" option and choose and existing task sequence variable the value returned from the powershell script is appended to the variable instead of replacing the value of the variable.

    Seems this should set the value not append the value.

  5. OS Upgreade TS: Add percentage complete next to the install bar.

    OS Upgreade TS: Add percentage complete next to the install bar. It would be easier to keep tabs on the installations.

  6. Support center online documentation

    It would be great to have an up to date documentation
    Currently, it is pointing to ConfigMgr 2012.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/system-center/system-center-2012-R2/dn688621(v=technet.10)
    The tool is available with CB 1810.

    Updating status to completed – this is addressed with the Referenced tab in the task sequences node. That shows all the statically referenced packages, applications, OS images, driver packages etc. and the distribution status.

    There’s a column ‘Targeted’ which is the number of distribution points used for the package/app. The ‘Compliance’ column indicates distribution status. Each column can be sorted for quick indication of distribution status.

    For each item in this list you can right click to select ‘View Content Status’ if you require granular detail.

    If that does not meet your requirements, please reactivate this item and let us know what else you’d like to see there.

  8. To be able to send wake up packet to a client from the admin console

    It would be useful to send a wake up packet to a client machine from the admin console to allow remote access if the machine has been turned off. This could be a check box option on the remote control screen. For example: "Send wake up if client is off"

  9. Allow scripts created in \Software Library\Scripts node to be ran in a task sequence

    The scripts that are created and approved in \Software Library\Scripts allow them to be used during a task sequence that way you do not need to create a package to contain the script file and download. That way you can avoid using the run command line step if the script is long.

  10. os discovery

    It would be great if we could exclude certain OS's from discovery. I have over 5500 machines in my DB that I couldn't care less about but they reside in an OU where I have machines I do care about.

  11. task sequence variable applied to nested task sequence

    It would be good if you a Task Sequence Variable created in the Parent task sequence could be applied in the child task sequence.

    e.g.
    Task Sequence A sets the task sequence variable 'wibble' = True

    Nested Task Sequence B has a step that runs if the Condition is set to run if Task Sequence Variable 'wibble' = True

    Hope that makes sense.

  12. App Approval - Include User “comments” in Email

    The new App Approval feature in 1810 is looking great. So we can build on integration with other services and service desk software it would be handy to include the users “comment” in the email body.
    Expanding on this and having the ability to add a “cost” and “billing code” field to the app request will enable the app procurement lifecycle to more streamlined.

    Updating status, I didn’t receive any reply for expanding on what your ask was.

    Standalone media is used for scenarios where there’s low or no bandwidth and also for recovery scenarios.

    We do not allow specifying the Primary site – I presume this is for the management point, once the client installs dependent on boundaries, AD membership etc. the client will find the management point and register. (that’s assuming there’s network available).

    Thanks and regards,
    Bob

  14. CMPivot Web Portal

    We have a lot of people who would love to run queries against our systems (Desktop Support admins for example) that we do not give direct console access to. It would be super helpful to have a web-based interface for CMPivot to allow people an easy method to execute queries.

    In addition, a query builder like that of Azure Log Analytics would be helpful as well so we don't have to walk them thru how to write all there queries.

  15. Support PXE responder to run on same server as DHCP

    Currently it is not supported to use the built in PXE responder on the same server that is running DHCP. Not everyone is fortunate enough to have their own servers for SCCM DPs.

  16. PowerShell Cmdlet for Modifying Nested Task Sequence (Get/Set-CMTSStepRunTaskSequence)

    It would be very helpful to have a cmlet that will allow you to modify the "Run Task Sequence" with PowerShell.

    I'd like to be able to script replicating an entire task sequence "suite" (including all of the nested sequences) and re-linking the new nested sequences.

    My use case is something like this:
    I want to start development work on a new build revision. The script would duplicate the production sequences (both parent and children) and repoint the "Run Task Sequence" steps to new "DEV" child sequences.

    This would automate the process and ensure that none of the production sequences…

  19. Add separate security role permission for CMPivot

    Console users must have "Run Scripts" security role permission to use CMPivot. Can you add a separate security role permission for CMPivot so we can make administrative users with CMPivot permission but not "Run Scripts?"

  20. Remove the need for App Catalog, by providing all functionality in Software Center

    Currently, some functionality is only available in the application catalog, and not in software center. Make it so everything can be done in software center, so we can remove application catalog... and Silverlight... and local site security configurations.
