  2. Powershell cmdlet to download all software updates in a Software Update Group

    There are Powershell cmdlets to create software update groups and to add software updates to a specific software update group but no cmdlet to download all the updates in a software group - this has to be done manually

  3. Stop filling smsts.log with useless ****

    Troubleshooting a failed task sequence is sometimes impossible, after the TS completes you sometimes end up with 3 files and 6MB of useless debugging junk, sometimes an entire 2MB file is full of nothing but lines like TS deleting 'CCM_CIVersionInfo.PolicyID=. It's amazing things ever work correctly with that much mayhem going on.

  4. Add filters to the cmdlet Get-CMSiteStatusMessage

    The cmdlet Get-CMSiteStatusMessage needs additional filtering capabilities beyond the severity of the message such as the MessageID and the Component. In a large site the cmdlet returns way too many records and already exceeds the quota violations before you are able to filter the results using Where-Object. Similar like theĀ“FilterHashTable parameter the Get-WinEvent cmdlet provides.

    We are improving this cmdlet for 1702 in the following ways:

    • Add FilterHashtable option like Get-WinEvent to add ad-hoc filtering
    • Add wildcard support for all filter parameters
    • Add array support for filter parameters
    • StartDateTime no longer mandatory (will default to 24 hours)
    • Add native ability to filter on MessageId, Module, and Component
    • ComputerName no longer requires successful DNS resolution for the specified name

    These changes should be in the next technical preview. We hope you like them!

  5. Task sequences that are run should be able to find out if the task sequence is run on a laptop, desktop or surface and run the job accordin

    Task sequences that are run should be able to find out if the task sequence is run on a laptop, desktop or surface and run the job accordingly. The power states might be different on them.

  6. Start-CMApplicationDeployment

    the Start-CMApplicationDeployment cmdlet should have a parameter for Automatically Update Supersedence, like on the UI.

    currently the only workaround would be doing via WMI directly
    $Deployment = Get-WmiObject -Namespace "root\SMS\site_$($SiteCode)" -Class "SMS_ApplicationAssignment" | Where-Object { $_.ApplicationName -like "$AppName" -and $_.CollectionName -like "$CollName"}
    $Deployment.UpdateSupersedence = "True"
    $Deployment.Put()

  7. Improve command Get-CMApprovalRequests

    add filter to return values based on current status. right now for any automation we need to report thousands of requests and filter them by Where-Object.

  8. Issue with Integration with Windows Update for Business in Windows 10 page

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt488782.aspx

    There are issues with this article. It states incorrectly useWSUSServer instead of UseWUServer.

    In addition in ConfigMgr 1602, the inventory of this registry key is not enabled by default and should be enabled using Hardware Inventory.

    Hi Jean-SĆ©bastien – since you posted this, we’ve updated the registry key setting. As of 1606, the hardware inventory class is enabled by default. Look to see an update to the procedure that shows how to enable the feature in coming updates.

    Thanks for the feedback – keep it coming!

  9. iOS Application deployment and Mac OS

    The following link states it's possible to deploy app on Mac OS devices enrolled and managed with Microsoft Intune : https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt627955.aspx

    Right now it's not possible. You should remove the reference from the page.

  10. Exclude a mac address directly from the console

    I'd like to be able to add a mac address to an exclusion list directly from the console, in a order to use the same NIC (usb adapter) on different devices (example : pxe deployment).
    Today, we have to add manually the mac address in a registry value.
    The procedure is described in this Technet blog article -> https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configurationmgr/2015/08/27/reusing-the-same-nic-for-multiple-pxe-initiated-deployments-in-system-center-configuration-manger-osd/

  11. "Do not apply power settings from my IT department to this computer" Doesn't stay ticked.

    SCCM 1703 - The "Do not apply power settings from my IT department to this computer" setting doesn't stay ticked although the setting does in fact apply. If I then close Software Center and reopen it, the tick has gone but the management is still bypassed correctly.

  12. Save-CMSoftwareUpdate Applet - Add a Retry parameter

    I would like to see a parameter added to the Save-CMSoftwareUpdate applet, that allows us to specify how many times the applet should retry downloading patches that fail to download.

    Currently if a patch fails to download, the applet moves onto the next patch without retrying, which induces administrator activity post-execution, or complex scripting to determine patches that are not downloaded and retrying them again.

  13. Documentation about the CCMLOGLEVEL parameter seems to be incorrect

    The documentation about the CCMLOGLEVEL parameter seems to be incorrect. Where is value 3 documented?
    In the SDK there is only the following:
    0 Verbose logging
    1 Normal logging
    2 No logging

  15. SCCM Domain Functional Level prereq check

    Both SCCM v1610 and the new v1611 include a domain functional level check that is referring to a minimum level of Windows Server 2003. Is this a change to the prereqs, an error in the documentation which states 2008 as the minimum level, or just an error in the new versions? This is quite a hot topic as the DFL has prevented many customers from moving to SCCM CB.

  16. Update the Technet Article

    I am reading the Technet article about conditional access in Configuration manager and the prerequistes for the on-premp exchange.

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn919655.aspx

    It states the following. ā€œMake sure that you are using the latest version of the on-premises Exchange connector.ā€

    My question is ā€“ how do I assure I am using the latest version of the connector, when itā€™s a build in feature of Configuration Manager?

  17. What happened to the SCCM Blog

    Is everything ok with JC Hornbeck? There hasn't been a blog posting in over a month at "Server & Tools Blogs > Server & Management Blogs > System Center: Configuration Manager"

    Those were incredibly useful and I checked them daily.

    JC’s role has changed and the blog is no longer being updated.

  18. Add pre-cache support for Required deployments

    Excited to see pre-cache support as some of my customers now have more laptops than desktops, and this will be crucial for the success of WaaS task sequences (it is not realistic to decouple application, driver, and maintenance steps from feature updates yet). However, why is it not supported for Required deployments? That is absolutely the scenario we wish to leverage it for - set a deadline and ensure that the content is there in the client cache before execution,.

    Marking Completed
    This was answered on SMSTalk – the ability to precache content for required deployments has been around since v3 at least.
    Select Download all content locally before starting task sequence in the deployment wizard. Also, there’s a status message sent from client once content download has completed

  19. Integrate full inventory triggers into Support Center (HINV/SINV)

    Invoking triggers in the Support Center tool will queue a delta inventory, which does not address the conditions where BADMIFs consume the scans for DeltaMismatch, Outdated etc. where the resync does not occur. This requires the additional FULL INVENTORY CYCLE to create the next major scan version:

    [wmi]"ROOT\ccm\invagt:InventoryActionStatus.InventoryActionID='{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001}'" | remove-wmiobject
    ([wmiclass]'ROOT\ccm:SMS_Client').TriggerSchedule('{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001}')
