  1. Support Center Log File Viewer - manage columns

    Hello,

    it seems its not possible to manage the columns. For example I don't need to see the column called "file name". This is possible in CMTrace.

    Thanks.

  2. Run as High Performance Power Plan needs to be able to modify the plan settings appropriately so devices do not sleep.

    The Run as High Performance Power Plan option for task sequences does not work properly. Even though it does set the current plan to High Performance, the default values under this plan for standby-timeout-ac (10 minutes) and standby-timeout-d (4 minutes) which is not adequate for most tasksequences to complete before a device sleeps. This option needs to be able to configure the plan to not sleep or hibernate in addition to setting it as the current plan. I've attached a copy of the High Performance power plan for Windows 10 1909 for reference. This power plan is mostly default exceptā€¦

  3. Do not change deployment time to automatic when changing available time.

    when changing the deployment time, the "as soon as possible" checkbox is automatically checked. This can result in a accidental deployment.

  4. Windows Defender was performing 2 WMI queries through SCCM every minute

    Microsoft Case ID: [Case #:24522893] - TrackingID#120121125002133.

    While troubleshooting on the case we noticed that Windows Defender was performing 2 WMI queries through SCCM every minute, even when Defender was disabled on the system. These queries generate about 70.000 events (detected via procmon) related to the registry every minute.

    The cause of the query is ccmexec.exe
    The queries are (detected via procdump):
    select * from _instancecreationevent within 60 where targetinstance isa "win32service" and ( targetinstance.name="msmpsvc" or targetinstance.name="windefend")

    select * from _instancemodificationevent within 60 where targetinstance isa "win32service" and targetinstance.state="running" and ( targetinstance.name="msmpsvc" or targetinstance.name="windefend")

    Antivirus scans those actionsā€¦

  5. Allow for formatting in the 'Run Script' action.

    When running a script in the console on a client, the results are smashed together. No -foregroundcolor shows up etc. richer experience would be nice.
    Also, what kind of files are supported? Nothing I pick can be uploaded.

  6. Remote connection ability in Support Center One Trace

    Please include the functionality of Remote Connection in One Trace,
    In Enterprise support, most situations are that you need to read log files from remote clients.
    I understand that it can be a workload on the WAN link, but that is up to the admin's to decide in their own environment.

  7. Ability to collect client logs via Tenant Attach

    It would be great if we could, like we can do in the console, to collect client logs in Mem/Tenant Attach so that helpdesk technicians can do this without using the console

  8. OneTrace log viewer: Monospaced fon like Courier New or Consola

    All the free "tail" tools use a monospaced font like Courier New or Consola. It is mandatory from my point of view to display correctly "tabulated" info.
    At the same time, an option should prevent removing leading spaces (same reason: get columns that look like columns)

  10. Create a tool to easily troubbleshoot and report root problems for an application deploiement failing.

    Most of the support desk do not have the needed knowledge to go to all the logs on a client and check why an application is not installed or do not appears in Catalog.
    Is it a policy issue , a Global conditions issue , does a requirement is not met , is a dependencies not installed ?
    Add to this one time to go to log you need ScopeId or CI , or Policy ID , all this make difficult the job for a SD Level 1 or 2

  11. More incremental collection information be shown in console (version 2010+)

    Starting with ConfigMgr 2010 the functions of the CEviewer are being moved into the console. One thing that the old tool was useful for was quickly showing how many incremental collections were in in an environment and what their total runtime was. Since there are performance limits to incremental evaluation it would be helpful to show inexperienced admins that they might be running into trouble by having too many or poorly performing collections set this way. I suggest that functionality be added either to the user/device collections view to show if incremental is set or not for a collection andā€¦

  12. include Windowsupdate.log in log collection

    Hi,

    We have new option to collect client log from the console. it works quite good.

    But to better troubleshoot frequent WindowsUdpate problems, it would be nice to include windowsupdate.log (after instant generation on w10/w2016+), and eventually CBS.log

    This way we have a better view of the computer state when digging for non installed KB, without asking remote user to send the files.

  17. Sccm reads windows security logs at startup

    The sccm client startup process is very heavy. On our machines we have a very demanding security baseline which gives us a huge windows security eventlog. Reading out this eventlog alone takes over 30 seconds at 25% CPU which makes the startup process of the computers even slower than it is. As we understand it SCCM reads pretty much the entire security log every time the service is started. Even if it's started twice in 30 minutes for whatever reason. We aren't sure what the point is of reading out 100MB of security logs, but it seems a waste. We'dā€¦

    Thank you for your feedback. Do you have user device affinity enabled in your environment? If you do, is it configured to automatically determine affinity? Changing user device affinity configuration may reduce this overhead.

    For more information, see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/apps/deploy-use/link-users-and-devices-with-user-device-affinity

    We will consider looking into ways to improve this in the future.

  18. New-CMOperatingSystemUpgradePackage need an Index switch

    New-CMOperatingSystemUpgradePackage need an Index switch. Unlike the wizard in the console where you can select a specific index to import, you cannot when using PowerShell. This is especially important when servicing the OS upgrade package via the Console.

  19. Warn when deployed application hasn't been uploaded to distributed points

    Suggestion: If you try to install an application that hasn't been distributed, the software center indicates "installing" with a spinning blue wheel. This unnecessarily trips up people new to SCCM and can make for a frustrating end user experience.

    Can the Management Console warn when you're trying to deploy an app that's not distributed?

  20. Combine Resource Explorer and Properties

    It would be very helpful if the Properties window of a device included all of the information in the Resource Explorer.

    Motivation:
    1. I almost never open the Properties view because it rarely contains the information I'm looking for. The Resource Explorer, on the other hand, has almost everything.
    2. Having the Resource Explorer buried under a sub-menu makes it difficult to train and convince technicians to use it in their day-to-day workflow to find information and solve problems.
    3. Since Resource Explorer is far more useful than Properties, it should be the easier of the two things to getā€¦
