  1. 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"

    • 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.

        • Remove the need for App Catalog, by providing all functionality in Software Center

          Currently, some functionality is only available in the application catalog, and not in software center. Make it so everything can be done in software center, so we can remove application catalog... and Silverlight... and local site security configurations.

          • 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

            • 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.

              • 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

                      • 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!

                        • 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.

                          • 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 limit…

                            • 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. I…

                                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 out…

                                    • 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…

                                        • 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.
