      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 won’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

    • 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.

      • 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 control…

        • 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."

          • Need details pane for Intune Subscription information

            It would be nice to have a 'details' pane when selecting a subscription, to maybe even show a little bit of status (like last time synchronized, number of devices enrolled, etc.

            • Add predefined action (to task sequence or application/package) to copy files/folders to user workstation (as user OR as system)

              Often whole software config is a single file. It is a pain to keep creating batch files for a simple copy action

              • Application Details

                It would be good to have the following options in Application Tab on SCCM console:

                1) The "Size" tab as we have now for PACKAGES to check the actual size of it.
                2) The “Application ID” as we have for PACKAGES (packageID). Although we do see it under deployment tab but only if we deploy application to any collection. In case we only need to check the distribution status with any deployment being done, we have to go to content status tab and search with application name. This could be made handy as is done for Packages section.

                • Alternative way to install ConfigMgr Admin Console

                  Hello Team,

                  I got an issue when i have done the upgrade to 1602 version of SCCM vnext.

                  That brings me this idea : How to get the Admin Console from an alternative way than via the SCCM Servicing and Upgrade section ?

                  Thank you for your help
                  Henri

                  • Add 2 new options for MDT, define and use Deployment toolkit

                    Add
                    MDT Define Microsoft Deployment Toolkit Package
                    Use Defined Microsoft Deployment Toolkit

                    So you can define then just use the defined MDT Toolkit. This would make it easier when you have multiple Use Microsoft Deployment Toolkit Package, in the TS. This way they wouldn't all have to be edited. So after you make a change/update your UDI for whatever reason usually applications upgrades.

                    This would same a major amount of time also ensure you don't miss one, and less time editing and testing.

                      Hi. This reads like something that would be addressed with the ‘Daisy chain task sequences’ https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8339997-daisy-chain-task-sequences-osd-and-non-osd

                      With that you can updating a single referenced/child task sequence containing the MDT Package and any ‘parent’ task sequence will get that update too.

                      Let me know if that matches your ask and I’ll merge your votes with that item.

                    • Enable option to run a Program as 64-bit process

                      Currently programs can only run as 32-bit process, so you need to use workarounds (such as sysnative) to run as 64-bit. I would like the ability to run a program as 64-bit, just like you can do with a task sequence 'run command' and application.

                      • Software Center icon on desktop

                        I would love the ability to put the Software Center icon on the desktop instead of burying it in the Start menu. That way my users have a quick and easy way to get to it. Maybe there's already a way to do it?

                            Adding an option to force kill a running deployment, be that a Task Sequence, Application or Package, from a particular or multiple devices would be beneficial in certain circumstances. Not least when a mistake has been made or a potential critical error could be avoided by doing so.

                              Customer does not have the store installed and using the built-in TS step keeps files and apps. I know that the "OSDSetupAdditionalUpgradeOptions" variable can be used, but it would be nice to have the option on the built-in TS step.

                                Thanks for responding.

                                We cannot provide a different migration options for the reasons I outlined below. Anything other than ‘Applications, Data and Settings’ will leave the machine unmanaged – while we developed the new upgrade step we tested them all.

                                I’ll see if I can source steps for reinstalling the Store without having to complete a restore.

                                • add application catalogue install report

                                  It would be useful to be able to have a default report created which shows the total number of software installed through the catalogue method. This would be useful when reporting back to management the amount of time saved through end users installing themselves, rather than time spent pushing out, amending collections, or manually installing.

                                    • resultant client settings

                                      add an option for the resultant client settings that are applied, and not what supposed to be applied, like GPO has for group policy resultant. The existing resultant client settings is more like the group policy modeling.

                                          Updating status to Noted

                                          Hi. 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

                                          https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/osd/deploy-use/scenarios-to-deploy-enterprise-operating-systems

                                          Is there a gap in the functionality you’re seeing or something else – let us know, we’d like to address your ask and help you with deploying Windows 10.

                                        • Software Center should display when machine and user policy last updated

                                          It could be nice to have a possibility to se e.g. in Softwarecenter when computer and user polices were updates last time.
