  1. PS Cmdlet Operating System Upgrade Package handling

    The PS Cmdlet currently offers options to manage Operating System Images but not Operating System Upgrade Packages.

    It would be great if corresponding Functions could be added:
    Get-CMOperatingSystemUpgradePackage
    Get-CMOperatingSystemUpgradePackageUpdateSchedule
    New-CMOperatingSystemUpgradePackage
    New-CMOperatingSystemUpgradePackageUpdateSchedule
    Remove-CMOperatingSystemUpgradePackage
    Remove-CMOperatingSystemUpgradePackageUpdateSchedule

  2. "Download Package Content" step in task sequence: allow manual order

    The "Download Package Content" step in task sequence automatically brings the deployment packages in alphabetic order of the name. Since the order is critical for accessing the contents via %DownloadPkg%, it would be great to replace the automatic order with manual up and down buttons to sort, like in the “Install Application” step. It is too easy to break a task sequence by changing just the name of a package.

  5. Run Script under System context

    The new Script functionality in the console allows deployment to a machine, but runs at USER level, not SYSTEM. We adhere to best practise and users are not admins, thereby limiting its utility for admin functions.

    It also prevents us from running cleanup scripts which require the system context (specific case is stuck BITS transfers initiated by CCM)

  6. Enhance documentation of Alternate Content Provider (ICcmAlternatedownloadProvider)

    The Alternate Content Provider is poorly documented. It would be nice if an example could be developed and posted. At minimum, it would be great if you could complete the documentation for the interface ICcmAlternatedownloadProvider and the call back. The call back is not documented at all. It simply says to call method SendNotifyErrorToCTM. Where is that?!

  8. New Software center (1511) Application doesn’t include installation status in Application tab

    Application doesn’t include installation status in Application tab,
    In the New Software Center, there's no way to tell easily if the suggested software is installed or not. It simply shows everything. You have to click each tile individually to find if it's installed.
    Yes, you can find installed apps in the "Installed software" tab, but from the user-experience perspective, to compare those two tabs every time (to find what is and what isn't installed), it's not very seamless.
    Do you know how to fix these issue or Ms has plan improve the New software center?
    Thank you

  10. F8 debug window no longer prevents reboot / restart in Windows 10 full OS, after upgrading to 1606 from R2 SP1

    The problem is that after upgrading from R2 SP1 to 1606, customer found that the debug shell window no longer suppresses the TS from restarting the computer in full OS.

    Updating status to completed as this is expected.
    We actually never guaranteed that the F8 command-prompt will prevent the rebooting of a machine. It was just a side-effect of the implementation.

    In older builds, we launch the command-prompt as part of setup-complete. This prevents the reboot while our setup-complete is still running. The problem is that with Windows 10, that will not work because the access to the desktop has changed.

    Now, we launch the command-prompt from the TS Progress UI. Reboots now proceed without waiting for the command-prompt because our setup-complete is not waiting for the command-prompt.

  11. Add a Copy-CMTaskSequence cmdlet

    With the console you can create a copy of a task sequence, but there does not appear to be a direct way of doing this via powershell. This would make staging image changes much easier.

  13. New-CMDetectionClauseWindowsInstaller Missing Braces in Product Code

    When an MSI detection rule is created with New-CMDetectionClauseWindowsInstaller, and applied to a Deployment Type with Set-CMScriptDeploymentType, the product code in the detection rule is missing the braces. This causes the detection rule to fail to detect an application that is actually installed. The application is successfully detected after adding the surrounding braces to the product code in the SCCM console.

  14. Add the option to set timeouts on more task sequence steps

    We recently added a task sequence step which involves querying a Dell web API for warranty information to write to WMI during OSD. We use a Run PowerShell script step for that. Unfortunately the Dell API is not always responsive which can lead to the TS hanging up on that step. I'm going to create a program for it for now so that it has a timeout, but it would be great if the Run PowerShell Script TS step had the option to check a box and specify a timeout period like some other steps have.

  15. Make hidden Variable really hidden

    In SCCM are normal and hidden variables. These hidden variables are not really hidden. For example, when you use them during Installation, those variables are visible in the clients logfiles.

    Thanks for the feedback, we’d missed updating this previously.

    There’s now options in the task sequence editor to specify if the variable is hidden, this will hide the variable in the log too. Same for the Run Command line action. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/plan-design/changes/whats-new-in-version-1902#other-improvements-to-os-deployment & https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/15282795-secret-task-sequence-variable-value-exposed for more detail

  16. TMG replacement for SCCM IBCM

    TMG is end of life and MS has not provided an alternative yet for SCCM IBCM to manage clients over the Internet. It would be great if alternatives like F5 would be supported for IBCM setup.

  18. List SMS Provider as site system role

    When decomissioning a site sytem, having the sms provider installed on that site system can cause the decomissioning to fail. By just displaying the sms provider as a site system role in the console, it's much easier to figure out that the fact that the sms provider is still installed is causing this.

  19. Run powerShell Script task sequence step to set variable appends to existing value instead of replace

    When using the new Run Powershell script step in a task sequence in CM 1902 and you use the "Output to a task sequence variable" option and choose and existing task sequence variable the value returned from the powershell script is appended to the variable instead of replacing the value of the variable.

    Seems this should set the value not append the value.

  20. There are no task sequences available to this computer

    We have experienced the issue for Unknown computers,
    "There are no task sequences available to this computer. Please ensure you have at least one task sequence advertised to this computer"

    As per below blog, this issue is fixed in 1702 update rollup
    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/configurationmgr/2017/08/03/error-there-are-no-task-sequences-available-to-this-computer-during-a-pxe-boot/

    However, the issue still occurring after 1702 rollup fix.
