  1. Add import code button to new Run PowerShell script task sequence step

    The 1811 Technical Preview added a "enter or paste a PowerShell script" function to the "Run PowerShell script" Task Sequence step. That is an awesome feature, but even more awesome would an import code button that automatically puts the code in for you when you direct it to a .ps1 script.

  2. DwnLdr-SPY

    Hi,

    I noticed that our company Sophos software picked up a virus that the SCCM Endpoint software did not, can you confirm if the following virus is in your threat catalogue?

    VBS/DwnLdr-SPY aka Trojan.GenericKD.4228438

    This has been in the Sophos database since 20 April 2017

  3. Queries vs Collections

    We have also experienced "Collection Creep". A tool would be handy to view/delete collections from a search criteria, e.g: No Memebers, No Deployments, no membership change in 6 months.

  5. Make it possible to show the Windows Upgrade GUI during an in place upgrade

    Actually there is no option to show the GUI for the Windows 10 upgrades. The users want to know whatā€™s going on during an in Place upgrade.

  6. Bug & Solution // Error The SELECT permission was denied on the object 'v_WindowsServicingStates'

    Windows Server 2016
    SCCM just upgraded to SCCM CB 1806

    When i run the Report "Lifecycle 01A - Computers with a specific software product" and i select "Windows 10, version 1703" it throws an error:
    Error The SELECT permission was denied on the object 'v_WindowsServicingStates'
    It Works fine if I for example select "Windows 8.1"

    I could reproduce it both environments - Test and Live.

    Solution:
    smsschm_users had no rights on the view 'v_WindowsServicingStates' for select
    set it manually, then it works

  8. Product Lifecycle dashboard is not aligned to lifecycle website

    SCCM - Asset Intelligence - Product Lifecycle.

    Keep the mainstream support end date aligned to web site - Life Cycle
    SCCM 1806.

    Windows 10 Build is showing 09/10/2018, but in the web site it is 09/10/2019.

  10. 64-bit only OS Deployment and 64-bit Client

    SCCM should have a native 64-bit client. With most computers having more than 4GB of RAM, 64-bit should be the only deployment option available. Like Apple, it's time for 64-bit only!

  11. Implement a "Suspend Task Sequence" Step in OSD like the LTISuspend.wsf script in MDT

    During a build and capture task sequence, it can be necessary to suspend the build so that one can run some application installs, make customization's, etc. These customization's can require reboots, which kill the task sequence. Please implement a solution similar to the LTISuspend.wsf script in MDT, where you can run the step and it creates a shortcut on the desktop to resume the task sequence.

  12. Fix Peer Cache limit to subnet

    Currently peer cache is still not a usable feature. We have found that all systems see themselves on the same subnet because of the Teredo Tunneling Adapter. They are all on the same IPv6 subnet. This has almost been found by a 3rd party vender (https://2pintsoftware.com/peer-cache-1806/). As Peer Cache is now a release feature and not pre-release, this should be fixed ASAP as it is a broken feature.

  13. Bring Desktop Analytics to Configuration Manager

    Bring the full new Desktop Analytics to SCCM, at ignite it was presented and you can have it only trough the fast track channel, when we can have the full experience in SCCM that your be great also for the co-managed devices and maybe with a connector to Intune to have the Intune SA clients also in SCCM for an overview.

  14. CMPivot - Additional operators and joins

    I'd like to see a few things added to CMPivot after having a chance to use it recently.
    1. Joins: Would be really useful to be able to join data from different entities, like joining process data with the device data to be able see what makes and models are running a specific process that may have a memory leak issue.

    2. Additional Operators: Would be nice to be able to do a math operation on data that comes back, convert memory values to MB/GB with division, etc.

  15. wake on lan

    Wake on LAN server role

    Today there is a possibility to enable Wake on LAN proxy role. But this is for clients and also require that there is at least 3 devices that can have this role. And there are issues with support for 802.1x networks.

    Many of our locations are small, and we may not guarantee that we have any devices running. But each location have a dedicated server that run the distribution point role. So why not be able to add a dedicated WOL proxy role on servers instead of the clients?

    This way we could also limitā€¦

  16. Fix - Console locks up on disconnected/reconnected RDP sessions

    In more than 10 different environments, over the past 5 or so versions of SCCM, I have found that my SCCM console will lock up when I have a disconnected session for over a day, then I reconnect to it. For example, if I leave a console, say, over the weekend, I can't do anything with it on Monday. I have to kill it from the task manager. Again, in many different environments. This is only on the site server, that's where I will typically log in and work. I have not seen this behavior in a remote console. Iā€¦

  17. Reduce the amount of time needed perform a CM upgrade

    For most companies, Configuration Manager is becoming a mission critical service the requires less and less downtime. Upgrading large environments/DBs can take up to 5 hours for the CAS, and 4-5 hours for primary sites. Also, most customers want to get the latest hotfixes installed right after performing an upgrade. In some cases, the hotfixes take just a long to complete as the original upgrade. Overall, this can require long outages (sometimes 2 days) to get current.

    Potential Solutions:

    1. The ability to upgrade directly to the latest hotfix as noted here:
    https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/33166225-upgrade-sccm-directly-to-rollup-version

  18. Allow Multiple Custom Tabs in Software Center

    With 1806 we have the ability to add a custom tab to Software Center. This makes this the place to go for all your IT needs.

    We would like to see this extended further by allowing admins to add more than one tab to Software Center. Hopefully our users would never need to leave Software Center for their IT experience in Windows with this feature.

    Updating status to completed.

    Support for Windows 10 was added in our 1511 release back when Windows 10 was released. As well as the same Build, Capture, Deploy we’ve had for all previous Windows versions we added a new In-place Upgrade task sequence template and step

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/osd/deploy-use/scenarios-to-deploy-enterprise-operating-systems

    Is there a gap in the functionality you’re seeing or something else – let us know, we’d like to address your ask and help you with deploying Windows 10.

  20. Standalone Primary Mutliple SUPs Documentation update

    Standalone Primary with Multiple SUPs - Documentation update

    There is limited documentation on how to install and configure multiple SUPs in a Standalone Primary Site. It is advised to have all SUPs share the SUP DB when you have multiple SUPs in a Primary Site to reduce impact if a client changes SUP. However one of the SUPs will synch with MS Update while the others will synch with the one selected to synch to MS Update. Because of this the SUP configuration has to be the same for all SUPs and any SUP/WSUS maintenance needs to be carried outā€¦
