  1. 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.

  2. 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?

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    JC’s role has changed and the blog is no longer being updated.

  4. 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

  5. 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will queue a delta inventory, which does not address the conditions where BADMIFs consume the scans for DeltaMismatch, Outdated etc.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}')

  9. Ability to upgrade Server Operating systems using Upgrade Task Sequence

    Just as we are all familiar with Workstation OS upgrades and using upgrade task sequences to move from a lower version to a higher version workstation OS I would like to ask that this be allowed for Server OS'es. Never mind the methodology you subscribe to when thinking of "upgrading" a server OS, having it as a 'possible' tool in the admin chest would be awesome.

    I recently discovered a bug on guest OS Linux RHEL 7 running on Server 2012 R2 Data-center Hyper V where the RTC clock injects very/different time wrong at boot. There is a fix "onā€¦

    Hi Patrick,

    Apologies for the delay in updating this item. We do support upgrade for Server, our documentation didn’t call that out directly and I made sure that was updated. See – Ability to upgrade Server Operating systems using Upgrade Task Sequence
    That was updated last September and I forgot to loop back on your User Voice time

    Also, passed this information re: Server support to our CSS to make sure everyone’s on the same page

  10. Implement a "Suspend Task Sequence" Step in OSD like the LTISuspend.wsf script in MDT

    During a build and capture task sequence, it can be necessary to suspend the build so that one can run some application installs, make customization's, etc. These customization's can require reboots, which kill the task sequence. Please implement a solution similar to the LTISuspend.wsf script in MDT, where you can run the step and it creates a shortcut on the desktop to resume the task sequence.

  12. Inject files/commands in boot image properties page.

    I do some customisations (remote control, scripts for support, bginfo) to our boot.wim files by copying files while it's mounted and doing an Update distribution points. It would be nice to be able to inject files to certain folders (like Windows\system32) in the property page of the boot image in a separate tab. Also include command to execute these custom scripts in winpeshl.ini just before TsBootShell.exe

    Marking completed for 1802

    X:\sms\pkg\sms00001 is the path the files/content from the ā€˜Prestart source directoryā€™ is added too.

    The doc link ā€“ docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/osd/get-start..
    has this entry
    When you boot to WinPE from a customized boot image that includes tools that you added, you can open a command prompt from WinPE and type the file name of the tool to run it. The location of these tools are automatically added to the path variable. The command prompt can only be added if the Enable command support (testing only) setting is selected on the Customization tab in the boot image properties.

  14. Add more discovery details to the Get-CMDevice commandlet

    When looking at the properties of a device, many attributes are included. For example, MAC address is an attribute that appears in those properties. When using the Get-CMDevice PowerShell commandlet though, these extended properties are not displayed.

    Get-CMDevice returns instances of SMS_CollectionMember. Changing the output of this cmdlet is very likely to be a breaking change, and collection/device cmdlets like this are our most heavily used. Therefore there’s too much risk in changing the behavior here.

    Fortunately, all is not lost. Several releases back we introduced a new cmdlet, Get-CMResource which will return the raw resource objects from WMI. “Get-CMResource -ResourceType System” will return SMS_R_System objects and this should give you what you want. Get-CMResource output can still be pipelined into other collection cmdlets.

    For more information, see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/sccm/configurationmanager/vlatest/get-cmresource

  15. Push Email profiles to andriod andsets from hybrid Intune managed devices.

    Currently you can only push email profiles to andriod handsets that are knox 4.0 + capable, when in a hybrid SCCM/InTune. Having the ability to push email profiles to other andriod handsets like the new "Andriod for Work" would be great.

    We added Android for Work support in Configuration Manager 1702 current branch, so you should be able to do this for Android devices that support work profiles. However, you will need to re-enroll your Android devices as Android for Work if you choose to do this.

  16. Force Web Apps to open in the Managed Browser with hybrid SCCM/Intune

    Currently in Intune Standalone it is possible to create an external link and enable the option "Require a managed browser to open this link (Android and iOS only)". For the hybrid SCCM/Intune it is not possible yet. This feature would be nice to add to hybrid SCCM/Intune

    Hi, Frans.

    You actually can force web apps to open in the Intune Managed Browser. There’s no checkbox in the SCCM console, but changing the protocol of the web app’s URL from “http” to “http-intunemam” or from “https” to “https-intunemam” prevents it from being opened in a non-managed browser.

    This has been documented here, right near the bottom: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt629356.aspx

    Updating status to completed.

    Support for Windows 10 was added in our 1511 release back when Windows 10 was released. As well as the same Build, Capture, Deploy we’ve had for all previous Windows versions we added a new In-place Upgrade task sequence template and step

  19. 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......

  20. 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, andā€¦
