  2. Support for custom table synchronization into Data Warehouse

    Issue: Support for custom table synchronization into Data Warehouse

    Currently, although a method exists to extend tables that can be imported into the Data Warehouse, we learnt recently that this is not supported. We feel this represents a gap with the following impacts:
    - Not all tables from the SCCM database are currently synced into the DW. Even a common AI table like Install_Software_Data must be synced via this custom process. This is a table used heavily in AI based software title reporting and therefore a common addition to the DW.
    - Custom inventory tables – inventory extension/customization is a…

  4. Fix very slow content download (and constant certificate checks) - in a HTTPS Only infra - for OS upgrades through Task Sequence.

    Basically we observe a very slow content download ("Upgrade Operating System" + "Download package content" step, for the driver packs) when doing Win10 in-place upgrade through a TS over HTTPS.
    Issue occurs on both Win10 1607/1703, using SCCM 1802 (back-end and client).
    Approx. 90% of the smsts.log entries are all about certificate validation (sometimes even multiple times for 1 downloaded file).
    After each selection/validation action, a status of <success> is returned.. but only seconds later the same selection/validation is attempted over and over again.

  5. List SMS Provider as site system role

    When decomissioning a site sytem, having the sms provider installed on that site system can cause the decomissioning to fail. By just displaying the sms provider as a site system role in the console, it's much easier to figure out that the fact that the sms provider is still installed is causing this.

  6. Enable "Access content directly from distrubution point" when linking another Task Sequence

    When I used the new feature that makes it possible to run a Task Sequence within a Task Sequence the option to "Access content directly from distrubution point" disappears. Is it possible to keep that option accessible? It's nice to only have one TS with all drivers and run that within any other task sequence while keeping that option enabled. Driver installation without that option is alot slower in my experience.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The option to use “Access content directly from distrubution point” was regressed from another code change late in our 1802 release. This was addressed in 1806, updating status to completed.

  7. Integrate /ResetBase and WIM Optimization/Exporting into Offline Servicing

    In the interest in making my OS deployment task sequences as fast and as optimized as possible, I always optimize WIM files anytime they're updated or re-created.

    In my build/capture task sequence, I add a step at the very end before capture to run DISM /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase so that all of the superseded updates are removed from the base image before it is captured. This results in a smaller WIM file and obviously, faster deployment times.

    With the built-in Offline Servicing option for OS images, once new updates are added, they remain in the component store of the image when…

  8. Refresh Task Sequences inside WinPE

    Can we please have an option to refresh the list of available task sequences when PXE Booting?

    At present, we have to reboot the machine in order for a new Task Sequence to show, or if any changes have been made to that TS after PXE Booting (eg you forget to Distribute a package, or disable/enable a step).

  9. Enable Azure Resource Management for Cloud DPs

    It would be great if you had the same ability to create a cloud DP like you can with the cloud gateway. Utilizing the classic installation type of using a certificate to create the cloud DP is cumbersome and prone to simple errors.

  10. Enable co-management using multiple ConfigMgr hierarchies to one Intune tenant

    Some customers has multiple SCCM environments (Test and Production), and want to enable co-management from multiple (two) ConfigMgr hierarchies.
    They need to test and verify that nothing is broken before moving into production.

  13. Specify drive to cache data for creating task sequence media

    When creating TS media, the cache is always downloaded to the temp folder for the user creating it. Our standard server config only build 100GB OS partitions which fill quickly. My admin PC has 256GB SSD primary with 1TB data drive. My SSD is filled with applications and other items but i have lots of free space on my data drive.
    Trying to create standalone media fills the remaining space on my SSD and eventually fails. The option to choose to cache the content to my data drive would work as there is a lot more space available.

  14. Enable deadline randomization for Applications and Packages in addition to software updates

    Deadline randomization is currently in place for software updates only. We were hoping that would expand to both applications and packages as well. This would reduce the demand for applications and package installations in a shared environment (virtual). We currently have this available with software updates. We'd like to see the scope expanded to include package and applications.

  15. Give us an option for Appx Provisioning Deployment

    ConfigMgr supports .appx deployment, but sometimes we want these on every user that signs into the machine. These machines may be on metered connections and not have a stable connection at the time to redownload the appx file. DISM lets us do this by hand and calls it provisioning. This is a long and complicated process when deploying to 1000's of machines.

    Currently SCCM pushed Windows Modern Applications can only installed into the current users profile even if the deployment is targeted at the machine.

    Can we get the option in SCCM for if we want the APPX provisioned for…

  17. New-CMPackageDeployment missing parameter to specify deployment expiration time.

    We currently use the cmdlet Start-CMPackageDeployment to create deployments to our patching collection and schedule reboots. We use the parameter DeploymentExpireDateTime to set the expiration for the deployment. We are now getting a message that start-cmpackagedeployment is being deprecated in favor of New-CMPackageDeployment, but the new command doesn't appear to have a parameter to set the deployment expiration time. Oddly, it does have a parameter "-UseUtcForExpireSchedule", so possibly it's just an omission?
