  1. Fix Install Applications step support with OSD standalone media

    During standalone media deployments the CM1706 client attempts to contact a MP when executing the Install Applications step and fails. Please fix this, as this capability worked, though limited, in ConfigMgr 2012 R2

  2. 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) andā€¦

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. Task Sequence Missing package error message include Package ID

    When a package is missing on a distribution point for a task sequence, the error message used to include the package ID, so we knew which package to deploy. That is now missing in the latest build. Now it's a guessing game on what's missing. Return the Package ID so that troubleshooting gets easier, not prettier.

    No further response so closing for 1802

    Explanation of behavior:

    If you select a task sequence which has a missing reference the Deploy option is inactive (grayed out) ā€“ thatā€™s done to prevent deployment when all required content is not available.

    The task sequences view also has the References tab which shows the distribution status of all statically referenced packages

    Editing the task sequence with a missing reference will pop a dialog listing any missing references

    If you launch via PXE any missing references are listed ā€“ the package Id or App Scope are shown with the message to validate content and use the retry to refresh policy.

  5. Support of CM client on Windows Storage Server 2016

    Add Windows Storage Server 2016 as a supported configuration for SCCM CB client.
    This edition is not currently supported and documented on
    Supported operating systems for clients and devices for System Center Configuration Manager

  6. Software Center stopping for user-available-package deployments 1802 - bug

    Noticed since 1802 - Deployed package, deployment targeted at user collection (but running as admin). Deployment purpose 'Available'. Using new-style Software Center interface with tiles. About 3-10 seconds after user clicks 'Install', Software Center crashes with msg "SCClient has stopped working".

  7. Clarify relationship between SC and SCCM

    List of discrepancies treating CM "Configuration Manager" different from DPM, SCOM, SCORCH, SCSM:
    - The SC Roadmap makes no mention of CM. http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/9/6/59602436-C9C5-48A1-B305-827654B9077B/SystemCenterRoadmapENUS.pdf
    - All the SC components except for CM appear to be on the same SAC (Semi-Annual Channel) software release train schedule with two releases (1801 and 1807) to date. https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/windowsserver/2018/07/24/system-center-1807-available-now/
    - The Microsoft Docs URL for CM does not include "system-center", whereas the other SC offerings do. e.g. https://docs.microsoft.com/system-center/scom/ vs https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm

    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

  9. MVP-Powershell client settings for software center

    add a new Set-CMClientSetting to customise software center. today the only way is to use the props SettingsXml for SMSSCIClientComp (SoftwareCenter) WMI and create a xml to configure it.

  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. DwnLdr-SPY

    Hi,

    I noticed that our company Sophos software picked up a virus that the SCCM Endpoint software did not, can you confirm if the following virus is in your threat catalogue?

    VBS/DwnLdr-SPY aka Trojan.GenericKD.4228438

    This has been in the Sophos database since 20 April 2017

    Updating status to completed – this is addressed with the Referenced tab in the task sequences node. That shows all the statically referenced packages, applications, OS images, driver packages etc. and the distribution status.

    Thereā€™s a column ā€˜Targetedā€™ which is the number of distribution points used for the package/app. The ā€˜Complianceā€™ column indicates distribution status. Each column can be sorted for quick indication of distribution status.

    For each item in this list you can right click to select ā€˜View Content Statusā€™ if you require granular detail.

    If that does not meet your requirements, please reactivate this item and let us know what else you’d like to see there.

  14. 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.

  17. Allow CMPivot to search for hidden files

    Utilizing CMPivot attempting to search for the presence of a file returns no results even when I know the file is there. Upon inspection of the actual powershell script that ran on the machine, I noticed that the line that calls "Get-Item" does NOT include the "-Force" parameter. The file is hidden, thus will never be returned in the results list.

    Why can I not use CMPivot on files that are hidden? Is that by design or is it a bug?

  18. Add /ResetBase to New-CMOperatingSystemImageUpdateSchedule

    Now that optimization of the WIM and removal of superseded updates is available as an option for offline servicing in the console, it would be great if this option could be added as a switch to the New-CMOperatingSystemImageUpdateSchedule cmdlet. I use this cmdlet to automate scheduling of updates in an ADG against all my WIMs so it would be great if I could shrink them down at the same time without needing to do this in the console.

  19. PXE Reponder Service doesnt stop/fail on error.

    We have had situations where the PXE Reponder service errors and stops listening to PXE requests WITHOUT the service stopping.
    For example, if the service starts and the machine doesnt yet have an ip address.

    Errors reported:
    PXE: No valid IP addresses.
    PXE::StartPXEServer failed; 0x80070490

    BUT the service keeps running!

    Suggest that the service should stop in this case so that other monitoring tools can detect and remediate the service failing.
