  1. rba viewer

    RBA Viewer from the toolkit no longer opens after the application of CU1 for SCCM 2012 R2 SP1. I show this VERY useful tool to almost every customer of mine as most of them struggle with creation of roles correctly. The viewer crashes with the following message in the debug.

  2. Save-CMSoftwareUpdate has no option to select the download source

    The Admin-Console is capable to download Softwareupdates from WSUS or a Networkshare wsuscontent). But there ist no commandlet for that. Save-CMSoftwareUpdate seems to be the commandlet for that. If so, than the parameters for the source are missing.

  3. SCCM 2012 R2 - PowerShell Commandlet needed to remove Updates from Group (Add-CMSoftwareUpdateToGroup exists)

    Hi all, my customer is using the PowerShell on a really high level to automate nearly all his ConfigMgr Patchmanagement Tasks. They are using Add-CMSoftwareUpdateToGroup but they're missing the matching Remove Commandlet.

  4. When you uninstall an application and the content for all the deployment types is not in the cache then the entire content will be downloade

    When you uninstall an application and the content for all the deployment types is not in the cache then the entire content will be downloaded again even if this is not required for the uninstallation routine.

    The client should be able to determine whether or not it needs to download the content before initiating an uninstallation.

  5. Add support for tftp windowsize

    I think it would be great if SCCM could have a configurable value in registry for TFTP windowsize just as it has with TFTP blocksize. Both WDS and bootmgr.exe seem to handle it but there is no easy way to get this option into the generated BCD file upon PXE boot. Seems like a low hanging fruit.

  6. Accurate Bug Updates Through Connect

    It's quite frustrating to spend time logging bugs with ConfigMgr through Connect only to have bug submissions either incorrectly closed (i.e. closed as a duplicate but also closing the referenced bug - will it ever get looked at if all active bugs are closed!?) or being closed as fixed but not adding any information as to what the fix is or when the fix will be released.

    Myself and colleagues spend the time and effort documenting these bugs with your products on behalf of customers so the very least that could be done in return is to let us knowā€¦

  7. Software Update Patch Tuesday Scheduling

    It would be really great if when configuring an Automated Deployment Rule you could configure it to run based on the number of days / weeks since "patch Tuesday" (especially in countries other than the USA where "patch Tuesday" is actually a Wednesday and not necessarily the second Wednesday of each month). I currently get around this by having a script detect when patch Tuesday has passed and subsequently execute an ADR and create one or more deployments based on the number of weeks since that date. This works fine, but an in product solution would be better

  8. 3rd Party Patching - SCUP Integration with SCCM Console

    Integrate the SCUP tool on to SCCM Admin Console. This will give a single pane of glass view for all patching activities (including importing 3rd party patches).

  9. PowerShell cmdlets for editing task sequences

    Being able to edit task sequences with PowerShell would make managing task sequences much easier. Some possible new cmdlets could include:

    Add-CMTaskSequenceStep
    Get-CMTaskSequenceStep
    Remove-CMTaskSequenceStep
    Set-CMTaskSequenceStep

    Add-CMTaskSequenceGroup
    Get-CMTaskSequenceGroup
    Remove-CMTaskSequenceGroup
    Set-CMTaskSequenceGroup

  10. Increase Log file size and retention for OSD

    Client logs for OSD are constantly purged and overwritten. This can make troubleshooting difficult in a standard environment. For example, logs are saved to X:\Windows\Temp during winPE phases. This file system is destroyed upon reboot. Even after the WinPE phases, log files (especially smsts.log) are constantly overwritten.

    Please prevent logs from being lost or overwritten during OSD.

  11. When creating stand-alone media from a CAS, allow primary site selection

    Please add the ability to select a primary site or site code when creating stand-alone media from a CAS.

    When creating stand-alone media today, it automatically sets the SCCM client to install using the site code of the site that is used to create the media. When using a CAS to create the media, this will cause the client to deploy without a usable site code.

    You cannot currently override this behavior through setting installation properties in the Setup Windows and ConfigMgr step.

  13. Software Catalog - New application notification

    It could be great to have a notification (for users I mean) when a new application or a new version of an application is published in the software Catalog.
    Underline new version or special icon visible in the catalog.
    Little notification through SCCM client.
    And what about RSS ?

  16. Set a default or preferred boot image for PXE

    Have an option to set a specific boot image for PXE. In an environment where there are multiple boot images, when a device PXE boots it will first download whichever boot image (that is PXE capable) associated with the most recently deployed task sequence. It would be nice to have an easier way to just set a default or preferred boot image for PXE instead.

  17. Enable a column for primary user!

    Enable an option to quickly see the primary user of a device (within the columns on the console) I don't have time to individually click machines or run reports to find the primary user.

    This is fixed in the just shipped #SCCM 1802 release. For both Primary User, and Logged on user. We still will improve a couple things:
    1) it is only in devices views; and we will add it in more views (collections, etc.)
    2) We actually think we can do even better than this, and use the SCCM fast channel to show currently logged in now users. If you like this idea, vote here:

  18. Request for intelligent MP, SMP and SUP selection based on network location, like current DP selection

    This is a DCR requesting that we improve the logic around MP, SMP and SUP selection by clients. Currently, we gather AD Site and IP Subnet details for DPs, store that in DPInfo and include that information in the XML body returned on content lookup requests. Why can we not do this for other server roles so that the client can choose the best server to connect to based on matching AD Site and/or IP Subnet? This would provide a far better solution than having to populate AllowedMPs, too.

  19. Have the ability to remove a CAS when only one primary site is left

    Beginning with 2012SP1, we have the ability to add a CAS to an autonomous primary site. It could be interesting to reverse the proposition by having the ability to remove a CAS above a Primary when a CAS is no longer needed or has been set for a wrong reason.
    I know that it could be done through creating another hierarchy and using migration tasks by this is quite difficult for it requires additional hardware.

  20. Support Evaluation of "On Battery" for Most Client Activities

    To reduce potential for failures due to low battery situations and to minimize the ConfigMgr client's impact to system battery life, introduce a check for certain client actions to allow them to be delayed or bypassed when the system is found to be running on battery or running critically low on battery:
    + Software distribution
    + Compliance settings
    + Inventory
    + Anti-malware scans
