  1. Get-CMSiteMaintenanceTask pipeline to Set-CMSiteMaintenanceTask

    Before upgrading a CM Site, it is recommended to ensure that no maintenance tasks are running - it would therefore be useful to disable all of them during an upgrade "just in case" and would prevent the need to check the run time of each one.
    There's a Get-CMSiteMaintenanceTask, but I cannot store this as a variable and use it in the "-MaintenanceTask" argument of Set-CMSiteMaintenanceTask. I've been through the properties to look for a suitable one to explicitly pass to the argument, but nothing seems to work......

    • Maintain an accurate and list of Site versions and associated Client versions

      With CM Current Branch implementations, customers will have more questions than ever about whether their clients are being upgraded to the proper version. There are ways to get at this data in the CM console, but sometimes there are gaps (hotfixes come to mind) and it would be great to have an authoritative resource to point customers to. This site (https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configmgrdogs/2014/02/07/configmgr-2012-version-numbers/) is great but it seems to be maintained by a field engineer. I think it would be more practical to make this data available on Technet or docs.microsoft.com. Also if it could have site version, build, and…

      • Invoke-CMDeploymentSummarization

        the Invoke-CMDeploymentSummarization should have an option to pass the software name as paramenter. the only option would be using deploymentid, but to get the deploymentid we need use get-cmdeployment, but this does not help if you want to run the summarization before running the cmdlet. having -collection -softwarename would be a great addition

        • ESAE

          Hello,

          I need some information how we can use ESAE and SCCM Current Branch. I was not able to find any doc in the internet.
          Is there anyone who worked earlier with a customer who implemented ESAE and they had also SCCM in their environment?
          I need some knowledge share or a documentation.
          How is SCCM affected?
          Where I need changes in SCCM? And so on…

          I am very thankful for every info I can get.

          regards
          Ismail

              Cmdlet documentation has just been updated for 1702 at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/sccm/configurationmanager/

              SDK documentation was updated a few months ago at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/develop/core/misc/system-center-configuration-manager-sdk

              In addition, we just published full documentation on the client messaging SDK here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt744369.aspx

              If there’s any aspects of the SDK or cmdlets that aren’t covered by the above, please do file specific feedback items for what you would like to see.

              Thanks!

              • Allow prevent autoload of CM psdrive

                Rather than have to invoke PowerShell via the ConfigMgr console, I prefer to just load the module into my existing session/console.
                The issue is that on load, the module auto-creates a PSDrvie with the CMSite provider using my current credentials.
                This is an issue because my "normal" account has pretty limited rights in ConfigMgr (by design), and I'd prefer to "connect" to ConfigMgr via PowerShell using my "admin" account.

                I'm thinking the least impactful way to do it would be for the module to honor an environment or pssessionpreference for "NoAutoCreatePSDrive" or the like (rather like the AD module) and…

                  This work has been completed for 1710.

                  Docs are in the process of being published.

                  Do disable auto-load of the PSDrive, create the following registry key:
                  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ConfigMgr10\PowerShell

                  Create a DWORD value called DisableCMDriveAutoCreate and set to 1 to disable auto-creation or 0 for default behavior. Deleting this registry value also restores default behavior.

                  Note that by disabling CMDrive auto-creation, the PowerShell window created from the admin console will write errors and will not be useable until you manually load the ConfigurationManager.psd1 module.

                  We are planning an additional change into 1802 where will write a warning to the console when importing the ConfigurationManager.psd1 module if this setting is enabled for additional awareness.

                • Client Health Results

                  please, add a powershell cmdlet to check for the client health information, like we have on the console

                  • Is this the only place to get SCCM hotfix info now that Premier has dropped hotfix support?

                    Premier used to be a central site where one could look up issues and find related hotfixes for SCCM and other Microsoft technologies. Premier has dropped hotfix support. How does one zero in on SCCM-related hotfixes? It doesn't appear that Cloud servicing would have them all. One can't just "Bing" these things as the results are unstructured and IMHO worthless.

                    Thank you,
                    Russell

                    • Distribution Status

                      create a cmdlet for distribution status (Get-CMDistributionStatus ?!?!) so you can have the same experience as the console. as today you need to look at the wmi SMS_ObjectContentExtraInfo class

                            Not sure if ConfigMgr docteam can correct this, but Windows 10 documentation tells that:

                            - Point to Technical Preview documentation --> should point to ConfigMgr 1511+ docs

                              I created a brand new ADR in TP 1801 and when I changed the schedule from custom to monthly, the error in the attached file appears.

                              • Doc Bug: Is it one or both Audit settings needed?

                                For getting the System Console Usage, Top Console User, and UDA stuff to work, you need to enable some security event log audits.

                                This page says you need only 1 Audit setting:

                                These pages say you need both of the Audit settings:

                                • failed to run task sequence due to missing content - show package ID not GUID

                                  When you start a task sequence and it starts off by validating content. If it can't find a given package/application, it used to just say something like "content for package ID ABC000123 could not be found on any distribution points". That was super easy to find in the console and either update distribution points or whatever needed to be done.

                                  With the 1702 update, it appears package ID has been replaced with ScopeID_(long_nasty_GUID)/Application_(Another_long_nasty_GUID). When this happened to me last week, I couldn't find the ScopeID or Application GUID anywhere in the console, and had no idea which of the 5…

                                    No response back, closing for 1802

                                    The message you’re seeing is for Applications – Applications use CI’s rather than the ABC00001 you see for SWD Packages, Boot Images, Task Sequences etc.

                                    In the Software Library, Applications – add CI Unique ID to the columns view. Type in the first few characters of the CI and any apps that match that are shown. You don’t need the column – I’m just suggesting that to help illustrate.

                                    In the Task Sequence view, the References tab shows all referenced content and distribution status. Right-click on any item and you’ll be shown which Distribution Points have that item. Also, the Object ID will show the CI/GUID or Package Id depending on the item type.

                                    Another option is selecting the Task Sequence and selecting Distribute Content – the wizard will show any referenced content that is not yet distributed.

                                    Lastly, within the Admin Console…

                                    disable the web browser is possible in intune stand alone but it is not supported in hybrid. it should be supported. the gap between intune stand alone and hybrid for android management is too wide and should be closed
