  1. Enable Azure Resource Management for Cloud DPs

    It would be great if you had the same ability to create a cloud DP like you can with the cloud gateway. Utilizing the classic installation type of using a certificate to create the cloud DP is cumbersome and prone to simple errors.

  2. Enable "Access content directly from distrubution point" when linking another Task Sequence

    When I used the new feature that makes it possible to run a Task Sequence within a Task Sequence the option to "Access content directly from distrubution point" disappears. Is it possible to keep that option accessible? It's nice to only have one TS with all drivers and run that within any other task sequence while keeping that option enabled. Driver installation without that option is alot slower in my experience.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The option to use “Access content directly from distrubution point” was regressed from another code change late in our 1802 release. This was addressed in 1806, updating status to completed.

    General Blog: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2018/07/31/update-1806-for-configuration-manager-current-branch-is-now-available/

  3. Task Sequence Break Points for Debugging

    It would be beneficial if you could set breakpoints at any line item in the task sequence, just like when coding, to stop the task sequence progress. Have a dialog pop up with which you can continue to the next break point.

    This was completed – I missed setting the status to completed.

    Updating status to completed – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion

    This ask is addressed with our new task sequence debugger now available with our 1906 release.

  4. SUP Sync Status

    Add a Get-SupSyncStatus cmdlet as it does not exist today.

    the only way to achieve this is via WMI
    gwmi -Class SMSSupSyncStatus -Namespace "root\sms\site$SiteCode" | select LastSyncErrorCode, LastSyncState

  5. Global PXE boot password change

    Global PXE boot password change so that you do not have to change it on every DP.

  8. Fix Console performance on systems with touch devices

    If you have a device with a touch screen, and/or digitizer/stylus, the Admin Console performance takes a huge performance hit on general use, and may lag for several minutes when performing simple tasks such as viewing "Users", "Devices", "Software Updates", etc. Disabling the touch devices in Device Manager result in the same action taking only several seconds. Confirmed on Surface Pro 3, HP All-In-Ones, and a variety of other devices. This issue has been reported to, AND reproduced by, our Microsoft support contact.

    Example: I have a collection of around 1100 devices. If I view that on the server, or…

  9. Queries vs Collections

    We have also experienced "Collection Creep". A tool would be handy to view/delete collections from a search criteria, e.g: No Memebers, No Deployments, no membership change in 6 months.

  10. New-CMPackageDeployment missing parameter to specify deployment expiration time.

    We currently use the cmdlet Start-CMPackageDeployment to create deployments to our patching collection and schedule reboots. We use the parameter DeploymentExpireDateTime to set the expiration for the deployment. We are now getting a message that start-cmpackagedeployment is being deprecated in favor of New-CMPackageDeployment, but the new command doesn't appear to have a parameter to set the deployment expiration time. Oddly, it does have a parameter "-UseUtcForExpireSchedule", so possibly it's just an omission?

  12. 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.

  13. "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'"

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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?

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. Pass a task sequence variable to PowerShell script via parameter

    When using the Run PowerShell Script task sequence, it would be beneficial to be able to pass task sequence variables in the parameters field, especially when using different credentials where PowerShell no longer has access to Microsoft.SMS.TSEnvironment.
