  1. Add "Windows 10 Enterprise for Virtual Desktops" in the “Operating system” of requirements as an option”

  2. Pause a Task Sequence when you want, as many times you want with just a variable

    By default you can pause a Task Sequence by adding a step in the TS that will display a msgbox.

    It would be cool to be able to pause a TS when you want and as many times you want.

    It is possible by changing the ztiutility.vbs file and add the below process:
    - Create a new TS variable TSPause
    - If this variable is configured to True a msgbox is diplayed

    See a post I did about this:

    Our Task Sequence debugger covers this and allows setting break points for each step.

  3. Server Groups: release lock when supressing reboot

    The pre-release feature "Server Groups" is designed to set a client lock when the "Cluster Settings" in a Device Collection are defined. The lock removes itself when the update sequence has completed to allow the next client to process updates.

    In my case the update sequence does not technically finish because the environment suppresses reboots from Software Updates. This is configured in the ADR/Software Update Group.

    Therefor the client lock state does not change from status 1 (have lock) to status 2 (released lock). Other devices in the collection are stuck on status 0 (waiting for lock).

    Please make the…

  4. application groups reverse/control uninstall order

    In Configuration Manager 1910 a user can uninstall an "app group" in Software Center if it is deployed as available. This is great! However the uninstall order is the same as the install order. we need the following in the uninstall space:
    -Reverse order of uninstall
    -Control if a application should be left instead of removed, could be needed in other app group.
    -Control the order if necessary

  5. New-CMAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment & Set-AutoDeploymentRuleDeployment are missing the DownloadFromMicrosoft option

    The current commands New-CMAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment & Set-AutoDeploymentRuleDeployment are missing the ability to enable "If software updates are not available on distribution points in current, neighbor or site boundary groups, download content from Microsoft Updates.

    This parameter is available in the command New-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRule. It would make sense for the other 2 commands to be able to use it.

  8. Ignore DHCPINFORM messages in SMSPXE.log for sccmpxe service.

    Team,

    Currently when the non-WDS PXE responder is enabled, all DHCPINFORM messages are logged in the SMSPXE.log. This floods the log with unnecessary information and makes the troubleshoting more difficult as the log gets overwritten very often.

    Please perform the change to at least not log these DHCPINFORM messages.

  9. PXE Reponder Service doesnt stop/fail on error.

    We have had situations where the PXE Reponder service errors and stops listening to PXE requests WITHOUT the service stopping.
    For example, if the service starts and the machine doesnt yet have an ip address.

    Errors reported:
    PXE: No valid IP addresses.
    PXE::StartPXEServer failed; 0x80070490

    BUT the service keeps running!

    Suggest that the service should stop in this case so that other monitoring tools can detect and remediate the service failing.

  11. Add Option to Bypass Proxy for Local Address for ADR Content Downloads

    It would be extremely helpful to have an option in the software update point site system to bypass a proxy for a local address. The only options today are (see Current-SUP-Proxy-Options.png):


    • Use a proxy server when synchronizing

    • Use a proxy server when downloading content by ADRs

    The issue is when an ADR tries to download a third-party software update, it will attempt to use a proxy server and often fail because the proxy doesn't route correctly to the internal WSUS server. For example in patchdownloader.log, you will see something like <Download-Error-PatchDownloader.png>.

    There needs to be an option to not use…

  13. Add /ResetBase to New-CMOperatingSystemImageUpdateSchedule

    Now that optimization of the WIM and removal of superseded updates is available as an option for offline servicing in the console, it would be great if this option could be added as a switch to the New-CMOperatingSystemImageUpdateSchedule cmdlet. I use this cmdlet to automate scheduling of updates in an ADG against all my WIMs so it would be great if I could shrink them down at the same time without needing to do this in the console.

  14. Have the console alert when the task sequence size is reached

    The task sequence has a 32MB size limit for all policy. But for some reason they are actually limited to 16MB. But the Product Group is aware of the problem. I know they are working on fixing the 16MB limit.

    This will help us troubleshoot and determine when the task sequence has reached this size.

    There’s now management insight rules which will highlight task sequences that will exceed the 32MB policy limit. Guidance for large task sequences is to use nested task sequences as each has it’s own 32MB to work with or if the Run Command Line or Run PowerShell script contains long scripts then consider moving those to referenced packages.

    Our 2008 Technical preview contains changes to show the task sequence size – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/get-started/2020/technical-preview-2008#bkmk_tssize

  16. Enable Bitlocker: Add Option to Skip if No TPM

    The 'Pre-provision BitLocker' step has an option to skip the step when the devices does not have a TPM or when the TPM is not enabled.

    I'd like to see that option added to the 'Enable Bitlocker' step. Whether it's enabled by default is another question I guess. However, this is one of the many things that hang up new admins trying to get their first Task Sequence off the ground. Just spent an hour or so trying to get past this step.

  17. Pass a task sequence variable to PowerShell script via parameter

    When using the Run PowerShell Script task sequence, it would be beneficial to be able to pass task sequence variables in the parameters field, especially when using different credentials where PowerShell no longer has access to Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment.

    I would like you to add the keyboard layout setting in the Apply Windows Settings step.

    Currently, keyboard layout settings are manually added to the registry within the Task Sequence.

    cmd.exe /c reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "LayerDriver JPN" /t REGSZ /d kbd106.dll & reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "OverrideKeyboardIdentifier" /t REGSZ /d PCAT106KEY & reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "OverrideKeyboardSubtype" /t REGDWORD /d 2 & reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "OverrideKeyboardType" /t REG_DWORD /d 7
