  1. Allow CMPivot to search for hidden files

    Utilizing CMPivot attempting to search for the presence of a file returns no results even when I know the file is there. Upon inspection of the actual powershell script that ran on the machine, I noticed that the line that calls "Get-Item" does NOT include the "-Force" parameter. The file is hidden, thus will never be returned in the results list.

    Why can I not use CMPivot on files that are hidden? Is that by design or is it a bug?

  2. Revamp ConfigMgr's cluster patching, and remove it from PreRelease

    Cluster patching feature was added in #SCCM CB 1602, but has been in prelease for a long time. It needs to:
    1) Have improved/revamped UI
    2) Remove dependency on collections
    3) Orchestrate patching for any machines, not just servers/clusters
    4) Remove the feature from prerelease

  4. 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.

  6. Add 80072ee2 as a default code to the WSUS Scan Retry Error Codes

    If a SUP/WSUS server is offline or in a disaster situation, clients should be allowed to failover to another SUP.

    Currently if a SUP goes offline, clients simply will never scan again, and this is not an ideal situation.

  8. 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.

  10. TSProgressUI.ShowMessage - Enable Output

    Can you add Output to the ShowMessage Method Please.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/develop/reference/core/clients/client-classes/iprogressui--showmessage-method

    You currently have the ability to create a Message Box with several Options for the Buttons, but no matter what you pick, or options you choose, you never get anything actionable.

    Current Actions:

    0 - Ok
    
    1 - Ok/Cancel
    2 - Abort/Retry/Ignore
    3 - Yes/No/Cancel
    4 - Yes/No
    5 - Retry/Cancel
    6 - Cancel/Try Again/Continue

    If you could have it Create a Variable upon the end of the step
    SMSTSShowMessageOutput = "ButtonName"

    Which then would supply one of the following Values:

    Ok, Cancel, Abort, Retry, Ignore, Yes, No, Retry, Tryā€¦

  12. Set-CMAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment to include missing AllowWUMU and AllowUseMeteredNetwork

    Although you can now add multiple deployments to a single Automatic Deployment Rule there a couple of options that can be read but not set. These are:

    "If software updates are not available on the distribution point in current, neighbor or site boundary groups, download content from Microsoft Updates."
    and
    "All clients on a metered internet connection to download content after the installation deadline, which might incur additional costs"

    I can successfully retrieve all Deployments associated with an Automatic Deployment Rule via the Get-CMAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment cmdlet and see the current settings for these properties by parsing the DeploymentTemplate XML.

    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.

    Thereā€™s a column ā€˜Targetedā€™ which is the number of distribution points used for the package/app. The ā€˜Complianceā€™ 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 ā€˜View Content Statusā€™ 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.

  14. 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"

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. App Approval - Include User ā€œcommentsā€ 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 ā€œcommentā€ in the email body.
    Expanding on this and having the ability to add a ā€œcostā€ and ā€œbilling codeā€ 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
