  2. Provide usable workaround for multiple UUIDs

    Currently if we add a new machine to sccm, and the OEM was lazy and reused a UUID builds won't start, and there seems to be no easy way aside from standalone build media to get around this.
    since we have to provide a uuid and mac address when we create new machines, why is it not smart enough to use the mac with the generic uuid to identify the correct machine?

  3. Support center online documentation

    It would be great to have an up to date documentation
    Currently, it is pointing to ConfigMgr 2012.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/system-center/system-center-2012-R2/dn688621(v=technet.10)
    The tool is available with CB 1810.

  4. Change default Client Settings for Software Center to use the new, not old

    Currently, the default client settings have an option called "Use the new Software Center" and it defaults to "No".

    Replace this option with something that says "Use the deprecated Software Center" and default it to "No".

    This would mean the default behavior on new sites would be to use the New software center. Additionally, I would argue that the upgrade should make this change in the Default Client Settings for existing installs (and document the change in the release notes).

  5. 64-bit PowerShell cmdlets

    I use PowerShell for many products from Microsoft and other vendors. Of them all, the SCCM cmdlets are the only ones that are available only in 32-bit. So I have to open a separate PowerShell instance when I want to run SCCM commands. Or sometimes I am writing a script that runs 64-bit commands for other products, then I must have the script open a special 32-bit Powershell instance for the SCCM commands.

  6. Add a custom section to osdinjection.xml

    Add a custom section to the osdinjection.xml fie (just like we have for configuration.mof), that makes it easier to add custom settings after the upgrades. As it is now, 1602 upgrade will override the existing file. Future upgrades might do the same. A custom section will make it so much easier for us to add our stuff back thus not loosing valueable changes.

    Setting to Completed

    In 1606 release thereā€™s changes made to Boot Image Customization. \sms\pkg\sms00001 is now added to path ā€“ that package path is whatā€™s added in the Package used for the Prestart command (see Boot Image Customization tab)

    Any tools etc. in that path can be accessed in WinPE. Any updates can be done via updating the Package, then refreshing content.

  7. Exception error occurs when I click on the "Office 365 Installer" of "Office 365 Client Management".

    "System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Failed to download file manifest for O365 from http://officecdn.microsoft.com/wsus/releasehistory.cab, with error 404" is displayed.
    In Japan.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. 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()

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. 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/

  17. "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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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
