  1. 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?

    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.

  5. Accurate Bug Updates Through Connect

    It's quite frustrating to spend time logging bugs with ConfigMgr through Connect only to have bug submissions either incorrectly closed (i.e. closed as a duplicate but also closing the referenced bug - will it ever get looked at if all active bugs are closed!?) or being closed as fixed but not adding any information as to what the fix is or when the fix will be released.

    Myself and colleagues spend the time and effort documenting these bugs with your products on behalf of customers so the very least that could be done in return is to let us knowā€¦

  7. Bug in -Location parameter for Save-CMSoftwareUpdate

    The -Location parameter for Save-CMSoftwareUpdate doesn't work. It always returns an InvalidArgumentException with the following message:

    WARNING: File path '<file path>' does not appear to be a valid local or UNC path. Must be in the format of C:\myfile.ext or \\myserver\share\myfile.ext

    Tried using local and UNC paths both in elevated and non-elevated PowerShell, both 32 and 64 bit instances.

  8. Fix - Console locks up on disconnected/reconnected RDP sessions

    In more than 10 different environments, over the past 5 or so versions of SCCM, I have found that my SCCM console will lock up when I have a disconnected session for over a day, then I reconnect to it. For example, if I leave a console, say, over the weekend, I can't do anything with it on Monday. I have to kill it from the task manager. Again, in many different environments. This is only on the site server, that's where I will typically log in and work. I have not seen this behavior in a remote console. Iā€¦

    Updating status, I didn’t receive any reply for expanding on what your ask was.

    Standalone media is used for scenarios where there’s low or no bandwidth and also for recovery scenarios.

    We do not allow specifying the Primary site – I presume this is for the management point, once the client installs dependent on boundaries, AD membership etc. the client will find the management point and register. (that’s assuming there’s network available).

    Thanks and regards,
    Bob

  11. Making PowerShell Cmdlets Discoverable in SCCM

    Presently the PowerShell Cmdlets for SCCM require use from the console or running a separate script like below.

    Import-Module "$($ENV:SMS_ADMIN_UI_PATH)\..\ConfigurationManager.psd1" # Import the ConfigurationManager.psd1 module
    Set-Location "$((Get-PSDrive -PSProvider CMSite).Name):" # Set the current location to be the site code.

    An alternative would be two options (Neither means re-writing the Configuration Manager console.

    One. Create a shortcut to launch the above script as a "PowerShell Configuration Manager Console"

    Two. Leverage some variant on a solution found here on the TechNet Script Repository which drops in a Hardlink with MKLINK pointing to the Configuration Manager BIN folder with the correct name forā€¦

  12. wake on lan

    Wake on LAN server role

    Today there is a possibility to enable Wake on LAN proxy role. But this is for clients and also require that there is at least 3 devices that can have this role. And there are issues with support for 802.1x networks.

    Many of our locations are small, and we may not guarantee that we have any devices running. But each location have a dedicated server that run the distribution point role. So why not be able to add a dedicated WOL proxy role on servers instead of the clients?

    This way we could also limitā€¦

  14. task sequence variable applied to nested task sequence

    It would be good if you a Task Sequence Variable created in the Parent task sequence could be applied in the child task sequence.

    e.g.
    Task Sequence A sets the task sequence variable 'wibble' = True

    Nested Task Sequence B has a step that runs if the Condition is set to run if Task Sequence Variable 'wibble' = True

    Hope that makes sense.

  15. Enable Role-Based Administration for Scripts .

  16. Run user state capture silently

    User state can only be captured to a state migration point with the associated task sequence steps. If a task sequence is created to capture user state, it cannot run silently. Additionally, since state migration steps are OSD steps, the warning message is shown to users before it runs

    completed  ·  sangeev responded

    Thanks for the feedback. Marking this completed – I fixed this in build 8181 so the changes would be present in the 1511/1602 releases onwards

    Ran another test with current 1606 to double-check. Steps are:
    Request State Store – Capture
    Capture User State
    Release State Store
    Request State Store – Restore
    Restore User State
    Release State Store
    No warning message is shown

    Which build are you using?

  18. Allow 'Windows Store for Business' feature settings to be changed/removed

    After incorrectly setting up a Windows Store for Business link, there is no way to remove or change this...

    Users need to be able to change the storage location, remove links to the Store or be able to update the key if it has expired. Currently it just says "The AAD credentials supplied must be tested before continuing." with an OK button.

  19. Teach the Admin Console how to sort numbers

    When sorting by Compliance % for some reason the sort is done as a string sort so 80% is a bigger number than 100%.

  20. automate testdbupgrade

    This may be possible, but I've found no documentation on it. Is it possible to make the testdbupgrade process unattended. I've got 8 primary sites and it takes a considerable amount of time backingup/restoring/testdbupgrade. in preparation for a site upgrade. I'd like to automate it all. The sql part is fine.

    Can testdbupgrade be specified inside the the configmgrautosave.ini ?
    so it could work with a command like this:
    setupwpf.exe /script *configmgrautosave.ini /nouserinput
