  1. Add a "Description" Parameter to the Get/Set/Add CMDistributionPoint cmdlets

    I'd like to see a "Description" parameter added to the Get/Set/Add CMDistributionPoint cmdlets so descriptions can be programatically added w/o having to try this through separate WMI cmdlets.

  2. "Run scripts using the 32 bit scripting host on 64 bit devices" for Configuration Items and Baseline not working as expected in SCCM 1606

    We are experiencing the issue as mentioned in the below article:
    https://thesccm.wordpress.com/2016/09/02/sccm-1606-bug-32-bit-process-powershell-detection-method-doesnt-work/

    We have tested the same in 1511 and 1606, and behavior is that it works on SCCM 1511 but it doesn’t on SCCM 1606 as it doesn’t run a 32 bit Shell:

    SCCM 1511:
    ==========
    With Run as 32Bit – Compliant for Greater than 0 condition
    Without the option – Non-Compliant as expected because it is unable to find the class

    Script command line: "C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\PowerShell.exe" -NoLogo -Noninteractive -ExecutionPolicy Bypass "& 'C:\Windows\CCM\SystemTemp\4375f470-32c6-497c-be63-d3ada81153df.ps1'"
    Script command line: "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe" -NoLogo -Noninteractive -ExecutionPolicy Bypass "& 'C:\Program Files\SMS_CCM\SystemTemp\cd4b0516-48fd-41f2-a2c3-cd249b53417a.ps1'"

    SCCM 1606:

  3. Allow scripts created in \Software Library\Scripts node to be ran in a task sequence

    The scripts that are created and approved in \Software Library\Scripts allow them to be used during a task sequence that way you do not need to create a package to contain the script file and download. That way you can avoid using the run command line step if the script is long.

  5. Make hardware inventory display name for OFFICE365PROPLUSCONFIGURATIONS pretty

    In CM1606, a new hardware inventory class was added for Office 365 Pro Plus Configurations which is great.

    Unfortunately, whoever added it made the display name for the class OFFICE365PROPLUSCONFIGURATIONS which is a little inconsistent with all the friendly names for everything else.

    PLEASECHANGEITTONORMALCASEANDUSESPACES. Remember, pretty counts! :-)

    Thanks for your help making ConfigMgr powerful AND beautiful.

  6. Add wildcard support to Remove-CMMaintenanceWindow

    I use a custom New-CMMaintenanceWindow to create a series of maintenance windows based off of which day Patch Tuesday falls on, and at year end when I create new MWs, I would like to use Remove-CMMaintenanceWindow to delete all MWs under a specified collection. Could you all please add supports for wildcards so it can delete all MWs?

  7. Improve App-V deployments to non-persistent VDI's.

    Improve App-V deployments to non-persistent VDI's. Currently if you App-V applications to users in non-persistent VDI environments, there is a long delay after the user logs on before the applications install.

    If this could be changed so that applications are published significantly faster after a user logs in that would enable the use of SCCM to deploy applications to non-persistent environments. Currently this process is far too slow as users have to wait too long to get their applications.

    This was meant to be addressed in SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 however I logged a call with Microsoft and they said…

  8. BootMedia Version and PackageID

    Place a file on the BootMedia to identify it with the PackageID and the Package Source Version. If you have different BootMedias (Test, Prod, ...) or FieldService that does not know which one they used to create the USB Stick, it would be very helpful, to easily find the PackageID and the Version of the Media.

  10. Run executable package content (posh script or exe) from RAMdisc

    I need an ability to run executable content, especially posh scripts, in winpe from RAMdisk. I mean, then there is no initialised or partitioned disks in the system.

  11. New-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRule 5.0.8373.1182 (1604)

    Since release Cmdlet Library Update 1604 it is finally possible to manage ADR and multiple deployments via Powershell *bigsuccess*

    unfortunately my previous powershell script for creating ADR's is not working anymore. Parameters for the Software Updates property filters are not getting applied anymore :( e.g Required is not getting applied
    'WARNING: BUG: Unrecognized filter type: NumMissing'

    ADR will be created but no property Filters getting applied

    Kind Regards

  12. Make it possible to show the Windows Upgrade GUI during an in place upgrade

    Actually there is no option to show the GUI for the Windows 10 upgrades. The users want to know what’s going on during an in Place upgrade.

  13. Save-CMSoftwareUpdate cmdlet crashes PowerShell console

    Sometimes, when the cmdlet comes across certain cumulative Office updates, it crashes the whole PowerShell console, which makes it very inconvenient, when this cmdlet is used in scope of a scheduled task. The thing is that in such case, the script just terminates like nothing happened, which requires some advanced wrappers to be built around to alert when such issues occur.

    Here's the event that gets logged in the Application log:
    Log Name: Application
    Source: Application Error
    Date: 11/14/2017 7:06:37 PM
    Event ID: 1000
    Task Category: (100)
    Level: Error
    Keywords: Classic
    User: N/A
    Computer: --- cut out ---
    Description:

  14. An easy button to regenerate default boot images after updating the Windows ADK.

    An easy button to regenerate default boot images after updating the Windows ADK in SCCM. Maybe add a confirmation prompt/warning.

    Updating status to completed – see https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2017/07/28/now-available-update-1706-for-system-center-configuration-manager/

    Reload boot images with latest WinPE version – During the “Update Distribution Points” wizard on a boot image, you can now reload the version of Windows PE in the selected boot image.

    The Boot Images view will also show the OS Version (added a while back) and ‘Client Version’ which is the version of the OSD Binaries we inject on boot image creation/import and update

    Thank you all for the suggestions and feedback

  15. 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!

  16. os discovery

    It would be great if we could exclude certain OS's from discovery. I have over 5500 machines in my DB that I couldn't care less about but they reside in an OU where I have machines I do care about.

  18. Client Cache documentation appears incorrect

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/clients/manage/manage-clients#BKMK_ClientCache

    The documentation here states that the Client Cache can be deleted using the Remove-Item PowerShell cmdlet, and implies the files can just be deleted without issue. Won't this orphan the cache elements in WMI?

  20. Select a collection and trigger clients to run a software update deployment evaluation cycle

    Select a collection and trigger clients to run a software update deployment evaluation cycle. For those scenarios where you need clients to check for updates (now) prior to the default schedule (5 days) that you setup in client settings.
