  1. Change State migration point to user based

    You could automate the computer change, if State Migration Point would be user based, not computer based (and existing linking created). When user get's new laptop from pre-installation, she will open it from package and connect cables. After that she logs on and runs State Migration Recovery that loads everything back to the new operating system.

    If using user based model, you don't have to manage MAC-addresses (that aren't in fact known beforehand). Easy to use for end-user:

    1 - Click one - Start scanning [---100%---] OK, shut down the old machine and log on to new one
    2 -ā€¦

  2. Improve package and task sequence export to include deployment information

    We often export packages from QA to production, but the export does not include the deployments. Also, collections are not included so we have to 1. export collections, 2. Export TS or package, 3. Manually recreate the deployments.

  3. Allow for an advanced filter under 'Run only on..' in task sequence

    Allow for a WMI filter or alternative in the advanced tab of a task sequence so we can run only on that hardware type. For example I have an OSD task sequence that I need to advertise to unknown however I actually only want to run on Model XYZ. This should be evaluated at the WinPE stage and then drop out of the TS if no match is found. This could equally be used similar to the existing format with a TS advertised in the software center.

    Thanks for the feedback. We’re looking at moving the functionality of the Check Readiness step to the task sequence properties and this is one of the additions were considering. Please note this is not scheduled work yet.

  4. Interactive logon Acceptence Agreement

    I would like to have a user acceptance with custom text every time an admin opens up the SCCM Admin Console.

  5. Switch to let SCCM install applications in OSD via admin account instead of trusted user

    SCCM is great for deploying OS's, and MDT is great for customizing those images. I'm asking for a switch that allows SCCM to act like MDT when it comes to installing and customizing a reference image.

  6. Import/Export Cmdlet Parameter aliases

    Could we please have a common alias for the file path parameters in the various import/export cmdlets?

    For example, currently we have:
    1. Export-CMBaseline uses -Path to set output path, and
    2. Export-CMTaskSequence uses -ExportFilePath.

    Then we have:
    1. Import-CMBaseline using -FileName to determine location of exported files
    2. Import-CMApplication using -FilePath,
    3. Import-CMTasksequence using -Path.

    A common alias like "Path" or "FilePath" for all these parameters will be very handy in reducing complexity of scripts calling your Cmdlets.

  9. Offer a unlock button to unlock editing an app after the console crash

    When the console crash while editing an app, the edited app is locked during 30 min before a user can edit it again. Only ReadOnly is possible.
    I can't unlock the app by the interface.
    Please, add a unlock button

  10. Console hangs when switchting from TS to Monitoring - Deployments

    When we navigate to Software Library => Operating System => Task Sequences => select some TS.
    Click on a TS and under 'related objects' click on 'deployments'
    You are switched to monitoring - deployments but the console hangs (no reponse on any action). TS is deployed to some collection. In scenario when TS is not deployed to any collection it is ok. We tested it on CM 1602, 1606 and 1610 and it is same everywhere. According MS Escalation Support the query is extremely slow and should be redesing.

  11. Collection Expiration

    Provide an option to "expire" a collection where it gets removed (or at lease collection evaluations are disabled) on a specified date. This would help with the collection evaluator from becoming overloaded with processing Pilot/Test collections that were "forgotten".

  13. In-Depth Information needed on Changes witin Reporting done by any CU

    No information is provided whether and what has changed within the reporting. I am particularly interested in very technical information, like stored procedures or changes that include the RBA model. Some of the changes might affect individually created reports, if they use the same methodology like the MS reports. Proactively apply those changes would suit me much better than waiting for an incident to be reported on a specific report -> detailed technical information on changes should be provided with each update (sp, used fn, ...)

  14. Maximize import driver window when selecting drivers

    When importing drivers to catalog, I get a window to select/tick drivers which the CM has read from inf files and import them. That window has very poor capability to scroll and view full paths and other info of drivers. It would be better, if I can set/fix/maximize the size of that window and drag columns how ever I like to. Now selectind and seeking between x86 and x64 folders, or OS folders is pain.

  15. DCM to check for audit settings

    Configuration Management needs the ability to check for Audit settings on a folder, much like it checks security settings.

    I know it can be done in powershell, but thats a very long and nasty road.

    Thanks for the feedback

    What’s happening here is the policies are not visible across different sites. So, if a client is already assigned to site A, the Management Point/Distribution Point on site B wonā€™t be able to access those policies and boot the client.

    The guidance is to delete the record – same as what you’ve been using

    We filed a documentation update to add the same information to https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt627940.aspx

  17. Reporting

    instead of SCO require Feature in SCCM once image complete/fails should get report on email with list of apps,System,Name,Ipaddress,OU etc.

  18. Add a command line option to Support Center to connect to a remote computer

    The Support Center utility is a great addition but doesn't seem to support specifying a remote computer to connect to from the command line. This would allow it to be called automatically from scripts and other tools.

    This is option is implemented for the remote control viewer by running: CmRcViewer.exe <remote-computer>

    Likewise it would be great to be able to call the Support Center thus:
    ConfigMgrSupportCenter.exe <remote-computer>

  19. Handling of signed powershell scripts in OSD via Group Policy

    Applications that utilize powershell as a detection method require that script to be signed with a code signing certificate. Code signing certificates are often managed through Active Directory Group Policy.

    See: Appendix 3 in the Code-Signing Best Practices guide
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/dn653556%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

    The challenge is how to you implement a system during OSD where certificates are managed through GPO.

    One could create a package that has certmgr and import the certificates; however, if there are any changes in the certs (revoked, expired, etc.) then there are multiple places to make that change.

    In some environments the application developement group has no controlā€¦

  20. Deployments should default to the safer option of "Available" instead of "Required"

    Where available (Package, Application, Updates, or Task Sequence), deployment should default to the safer option of "Available" vs. "Required."
