  1. Ability to configure more options for Remote Control

    Ability to configure connection quality (Example: LAN, MODEM, SLOW) and according to the selection set some options, such as number of colors, do not display the wallpaper of the remote machine, these options would bring a better experience to the connection.

  2. WMF 5.1 breaks class registrations for the ConfigMgr client agent

    I've localized this issue to WMF 5.1 on Windows 7. With this installed, the WMI namespace: root\ccm\policy\defaultmacine\requestedconfig becomes invalid. This is important because in In-Place upgrade scenarios from Windows 7 to Windows 10, the task sequence agent cannot resume the task sequence without being able to read this namespace.

    These are the relevant errors I see in the SMSTS.log:

    `Failed to open WMI Namespace 'root\ccm\policy\defaultmachine\requestedconfig'. WMI Repository may be corrupted. Invalid namespace (Error: 8004100E; Source: WMI)`

    `Error compiling client config policies. code 8004100E`

    `Task Sequence Manager could not initialize Task Sequence Environment. code 8004100E`

    `Task sequence execution failed with errorā€¦

  3. 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).

  4. Add all iOS compliace Policies to SCCM

    Please add more, or ALL iOS compliance policies to the SCCM console. Ā It seems that users running in HybridĀ can only deploy a fraction of the iOS restrictions/compliance options.

    For example, I am unable to find any of the "Supervised Mode" compliance policies like "Allow Account Modification" in the SCCM console.

    Thanks

  5. Windows 10 Desktop Full Wipe in Intune Hybrid Implementation

    Currently, only retirement/partial wipe is supported for an Intune enrolled Windows 10 Desktop device when Intune is in a hybrid implementation with Config Manager ('Current Branch' 1602 in my testing).

    In Intune standalone, full wipe is supported on Windows 10 Desktop. I'd like to request this feature makes its way to Intune Hybrid.

  6. site restore

    Add a way to perform a site restore to a system with a different name (but keep the same site code). In the event of a Datacenter Move, often times we are not allowed to retain the same system name (location based naming) and we end up having to stand up and entire new infrastructure and migrate.

    While this is doable, it's tedious work and when operating in a Hybrid scenario with Intune, it means that we have to re-enroll the Intune managed clients to a new management authority. It's a whole lot of pain.

  7. Add ability to not include Autorun.inf when building SCCM OSD boot media.

    Our Antivirus/malware tools blocks autorun.inf in our environment as well as it is a huge attack vector

  8. Predeclared Devices needs to be administered by ConfigMgr users who are not full site admins

    Within ConfigMgr 1606 the ability to predeclare devices was added, allowing you to import single or multiple 'company' mobile assets. Only full site admins can perform this action, this needs to be enabled as a security role or permission allowing non full site admins to complete the task.

    completed  ·  Tyler Castaldo responded

    We added permissions for the entire Corporate-owned Devices node — including Predeclared Devices — for the Asset Manager and Company Resource Access Manager roles back in the Configuration Manager 1610 Technical Preview as described here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/get-started/capabilities-in-technical-preview-1610#additional-security-role-support

    We did roll this change into the Configuration Manager 1610 current branch release as well.

    Does this meet your needs?

  9. Add a 'View report in Web Reporting' button to Monitoring\Reporting

    Reports are awesome! But it would be much better if we could right click a report on the console and jump directly into viewing it on the web, or better yet, copy link to clipboard.

  10. Support installation of packages/apps via dynamic variables in Standalone Media

    At the moment standalone media deployments only work when the content is referenced directly by the task sequence. There are some actions like installing apps/packages using dynamic variables which do not work.

    The pre-staged media wizard was changed with SCCM 2012 SP1 so that you can add additional pre-staged content. I would like to see a similar approach where you can add additional content to standalone media and then this is checked first when the dynamic install action runs. There is already a process for adding the variables to the media, the only part that is missing is the abilityā€¦

  11. Please do not install Silverlight by default in vNext

    Please do not install Silverlight with ConfigMgr-Client by default in vNext. The new Software Center with the integrated application catalog don't need Silverlight.

  12. Run PowerShell Script Success Codes

    Would like to see the "Run PowerShell Script" task sequence task have the same Success Codes options as the "Run Command Line" task does. Would provide some additional control in the task sequences.

    Currently to circumvent this I create a task sequence variable instead of an exit code to handle a subsequent step however I could likely do more if the Success Codes feature was available.

  13. Automatically remediate Provisioning Mode if client is in this state for x days

    If a Configuration Manager Client Agent stays more than 2 days in Provisioning Mode it would be helpful if the client leaves this mode. Otherwise the device will not be managed and it makes it impossible to detect such devices as no Compliance checks or anything else can be done on them. It is annoying especially in cases where you Upgraded the OS from a legacy version to Windows 10 and the client stays in Provisioning Mode.

  16. Software Center - Software changes dialog box details link should link through to Installation Status tab

    Scenario:
    - Deployment with installation deadline- End user receives a "Software changes are required' notification (balloon/toast)
    - End user clicks the notification
    - A dialog box opens showing the number of required changes, restart requirement and some options for scheduling
    - When clicking view details (next to required changes) Software Center opens in the application tab

    On the applications tab there is no indication what item the change notification is referring to. The actual purpose of the change remains unclear for the end user.

    It would be nice if the view details link opens the Software Center in the Installationā€¦

  17. Software Update Error after Installing Feature Update 0x80070422

    When Installing Feature Update 1607 or 1703 via WSUS and Software Update Group the clients System Center reports error 0x80070422.
    The error is reported, even the client installed the feature update fully successful. This is caused, by a delay or not running Services after the first boot of the Client after the Feature update. A solution could be, that the ccmexec process waits longer for the Windows update Service to Startup or Trigger the start of the Windows update Service itself.

  18. 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.

  19. 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
