  1. Fix Organization name displayed in software center when it contains an apostrophe

    When Client Settings - Computer Agent - Use new Software Center is set to Yes and the value of "Organization name displayed in Software Center" contains an apostrophe, the organization name actually displayed in Software Center has the apostrophe replaced with '

  2. Automatic Client upgrades - respect defined maintenance windows

    The function to upgrade clients automatically should be modified so it respect defined maintenance windows.
    If the client upgrade requires a reboot, and it happen outside maintenance windows, it will cause many issues in an enterprise environment.

  3. Add name of inf files to driver information in boot image

    When looking at the driver files that are in a boot image, the only information available is the name of the driver. Many drivers have multiple versions but the same name. The only way to truly distinguish drivers with the same name is by the name of the inf file, which is not visible in the boot image drivers tab. This information can be found on the individual driver usage tab, but that requires selecting each driver individually and seeing if it's in the boot image. If there was a column in the boot image drivers page showing the nameā€¦

  4. My ADR rules for syncing from windows update broke last week

    Sometime last week - my ADR rules can no longer sync. I'm getting an error trying to sync new updates. Infact, it doesn't even work when I don't use ADR, and just do a manual sync. ????

  5. At last - tell us at which computers an update needs to be deployed

    At the beginning of every hotfix or CU Publishing in the Internet, please start somewhat as follows:

    "This update Needs to be deployed to the following entities":
    CAS (yes/no)
    Admin console computers (yes/no)
    Primary Sites (yes/no)
    Secondary Sites (yes/no)
    Distribution Points (yes/no)
    Management Points (yes/no)
    Software Update Points (yes/no)

    Nowadays it is unbearable having an update news from you but no any clue where to install it!

  7. Support enabling App-V for Windows 10 Anniversary edition

    Now that App-V is included, it would be good if there was a way to automatically enable App-V in anniversary edition if an App-V application is deployed, or allow configuration using client settings

  8. 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.

  11. CMPivot Eventlog is using Get-Eventlog instead of Get-WinEvent

    The current 1806 implementation of CMPivot is using the cmdlet GEt-Eventlog read event log entries. The PowerShell command is:
    $events = get-eventlog -LogName $logName -Newest 50 -ErrorAction Stop

    This limits the logs to be read from to logs like Application, Security, System and only some others. On my client (Get-EventLog -List).Count has only 12 logs.

    The better command would be Get-WinEvent. Where I can access all logs. The command (Get-WinEvent -ListLog *).Count returns 463 logs.

  12. updates and servicing

    The Administration > Cloud Services > Updates and Servicing deserves it's own blade in the console. Given that this is how Current Branch updates are delivered, this is an important piece and shouldn't be buried in the UI.

  14. Correct technet guide about AlwaysOn

    The guid https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt651651.aspx is incorrect or missing some steps.


    1. It mentions Endpoints a few times, while it has meen listener. Listener is not the same as endoint . AONAG must have a listener and the listerner name must the provided as sql server name

    2. The port of listener must match the port of SQL Servers

    3. BEFORE adding the DB to AONAG (if the new server is different than current one), run the following:

    USE master

    ALTER DATABASE cmXXX SET ENABLEBROKER
    ALTER DATABASE cm_XXX SET TRUSTWORTHY ON;

    USE CMXXX
    EXEC sp

  15. SCEP: Option for admins to turn off scanning of Network Drives without adding exclusions

    I suggest a optional check box to disable the scanning in real-time of files on network drives. Other AV products have such functionality. This would be simpler and more fool proof than adding all network drives a company might have to their exclusion lists.

  16. Software Catalog - New application notification

    It could be great to have a notification (for users I mean) when a new application or a new version of an application is published in the software Catalog.
    Underline new version or special icon visible in the catalog.
    Little notification through SCCM client.
    And what about RSS ?

    Thanks for all your feedback and suggestions. Updating status to completed ā€“ see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/configmgr/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each status.

    Blog: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Configuration-Manager-Blog/Update-1910-for-Microsoft-Endpoint-Configuration-Manager-current/ba-p/1032459
    Docs: https://docs.microsoft.com/configmgr/core/plan-design/changes/whats-new-in-version-1910

  18. Export / Import TS fails with Install SW Updates step (SCCM CB - 1606)

    If you have a TS with an Install Software Update step, the TS can not be exported and imported. The Import Wizard fails with a null pointer exception. After removing the Install Software Update step, the TS can be exporteted and imported. The same happens with the Import-CMTaskSequence Commandlet. Please fix this error.

  19. App Approval - Include User ā€œcommentsā€ in Email

    The new App Approval feature in 1810 is looking great. So we can build on integration with other services and service desk software it would be handy to include the users ā€œcommentā€ in the email body.
    Expanding on this and having the ability to add a ā€œcostā€ and ā€œbilling codeā€ field to the app request will enable the app procurement lifecycle to more streamlined.

  20. Clients should automatically switch between SUPs / WSUS

    Boundary awareness for SUPs / WSUS

    Example:
    - Clients do not switch automatically to Secondary Site WSUS, if the Secondary Site was installed later as the Primary Site
    - Travellers / VPN connection within the company network
    - No automatic failback if Secondary Site server was done
    etc.
