  1. Pause a Task Sequence when you want, as many times you want with just a variable

    By default you can pause a Task Sequence by adding a step in the TS that will display a msgbox.

    It would be cool to be able to pause a TS when you want and as many times you want.

    It is possible by changing the ztiutility.vbs file and add the below process:
    - Create a new TS variable TSPause
    - If this variable is configured to True a msgbox is diplayed

    See a post I did about this:

    Our Task Sequence debugger covers this and allows setting break points for each step.

    Regarding popping a message box, there’s additions in our 2003 Tech Preview released yesterday you may find interesting. Links added to this item https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/15154383-include-the-serviceui-exe-functionality-in-task-se

  2. Server Groups: release lock when supressing reboot

    The pre-release feature "Server Groups" is designed to set a client lock when the "Cluster Settings" in a Device Collection are defined. The lock removes itself when the update sequence has completed to allow the next client to process updates.

    In my case the update sequence does not technically finish because the environment suppresses reboots from Software Updates. This is configured in the ADR/Software Update Group.

    Therefor the client lock state does not change from status 1 (have lock) to status 2 (released lock). Other devices in the collection are stuck on status 0 (waiting for lock).

    Please make theā€¦

  3. application groups reverse/control uninstall order

    In Configuration Manager 1910 a user can uninstall an "app group" in Software Center if it is deployed as available. This is great! However the uninstall order is the same as the install order. we need the following in the uninstall space:
    -Reverse order of uninstall
    -Control if a application should be left instead of removed, could be needed in other app group.
    -Control the order if necessary

  6. Ignore DHCPINFORM messages in SMSPXE.log for sccmpxe service.

    Team,

    Currently when the non-WDS PXE responder is enabled, all DHCPINFORM messages are logged in the SMSPXE.log. This floods the log with unnecessary information and makes the troubleshoting more difficult as the log gets overwritten very often.

    Please perform the change to at least not log these DHCPINFORM messages.

  7. PXE Reponder Service doesnt stop/fail on error.

    We have had situations where the PXE Reponder service errors and stops listening to PXE requests WITHOUT the service stopping.
    For example, if the service starts and the machine doesnt yet have an ip address.

    Errors reported:
    PXE: No valid IP addresses.
    PXE::StartPXEServer failed; 0x80070490

    BUT the service keeps running!

    Suggest that the service should stop in this case so that other monitoring tools can detect and remediate the service failing.

  8. CMPivot: Add an option to provide a code signing certificate for the generated scripts from CMPivot

    In our organization only signed scripts may be executed on the clients. However, the scripts from CMPivot queries are not signed and are therefore not executed. This restriction is set by GPO and cannot be overridden by "PowerShell execution policy" in the SCCM client computer agent.

  10. Add Option to Bypass Proxy for Local Address for ADR Content Downloads

    It would be extremely helpful to have an option in the software update point site system to bypass a proxy for a local address. The only options today are (see Current-SUP-Proxy-Options.png):


    • Use a proxy server when synchronizing

    • Use a proxy server when downloading content by ADRs

    The issue is when an ADR tries to download a third-party software update, it will attempt to use a proxy server and often fail because the proxy doesn't route correctly to the internal WSUS server. For example in patchdownloader.log, you will see something like <Download-Error-PatchDownloader.png>.

    There needs to be an option to not useā€¦

  12. Pass a task sequence variable to PowerShell script via parameter

    When using the Run PowerShell Script task sequence, it would be beneficial to be able to pass task sequence variables in the parameters field, especially when using different credentials where PowerShell no longer has access to Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment.

  13. Add keyboard layout settings in the Apply Windows Settings step

    I would like you to add the keyboard layout setting in the Apply Windows Settings step.
    Please add it as shown in the screenshot below.
    Currently, keyboard layout settings are manually added to the registry within the Task Sequence.

    Command line:
    cmd.exe /c reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "LayerDriver JPN" /t REGSZ /d kbd106.dll & reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "OverrideKeyboardIdentifier" /t REGSZ /d PCAT106KEY & reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "OverrideKeyboardSubtype" /t REGDWORD /d 2 & reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters /f /v "OverrideKeyboardType" /t REG_DWORD /d 7

  14. Explanation of the future of MDM support in SCCM

    Hybrid MDM support is deprecated in SCCM. Details of this deprication is here:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/mdm/understand/hybrid-mobile-device-management
    If you are a Hybrid customer, Microsoft is very happy to work with you to make your migration to Intune seamless/painless. Please reach out to Microsoft support.

  16. 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?

  17. 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.

  19. 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.
