  1. Add a button in Software Center to allow the users to refresh the Machine/User Policy

    Add a button in Software Center so the user can update the MAchine and User Policy. Would be a great feature for the end-user when waiting for an application to be available!

  2. Upgrade Operating System Task should be able to use Windows Servicing Content and Allow user interaction

    Problem:
    ā€¢ Current state of windows 10 servicing via upgrade sequence requires full media to take the client through setup.
    o Full media is 2x the size of existing ESD (upgrade content)
    o The Upgrade Operating System step does not allow the end user to defer the reboot nor does it warn the user of a reboot pending once setup has been kicked off

    Change Request (Requirements)
    I. The Upgrade Operating System step in the task sequence shall permit the administrator to reference windows 10 servicing content
    II. The Upgrade Operating System step in the task sequence shall permit theā€¦

    Updating status to completed – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each value.

    This ask spans a couple of areas, we’ve addressed the system reboot customization with the variable SMSTSRebootDelayNext – I’ll close this item and return your votes to you.

    For using ESD, we have this item https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/16896706-windows-10-upgrade-servicing if you want to add your votes to that.

    [Aaron Smith – I’ve sent you a couple of messages to help solve your issue, let me know the status, thanks]

  3. Content Library Cleanup Tool

    At the moment the Content Library Cleanup Tool shipped in SCCM 1610 TP, when it find some errors or is not able to cleanup some of the orphaned files/information in Content Lib crashes or stop the process.
    In big environments with a large number of PullDP's it's important that we can automate the tool to perform an automated clenaup of the distribution Points and Pull Distrbution Points.
    We are working with a customer that as a large number of PullDP's so we would like to suggest for future versions of the tool the following changes:

  4. Remote tools - client setting to change client service to Automatic startup

    One of the biggest issues I hear with the Remote Tools is that when you restart a machine it takes a couple of minutes before you can remote control it again. This is due to the delayed start of the service. I assume that this cannot be changed per default but give us the option using a client setting to change it to Automatic instead of using a GPO would be really sweet!
    This is very similar to the following feedback item. https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/8471107-fix-remote-control-bug-after-client-reboot#comments

  5. Explanation on SCCM linux/unix client deprecation

    Why was the SCCM Linux/Unix client deprecated. Some SCCM customers use and depend on this functionality. Why is it no longer being invested in?

  6. 64-bit update for SCCM Mac client

    Since Apple released the 10.13.4 update, whenever we try to install something using the SCCM client, we get an error message saying that Configuration Manager is not optimized for your Mac. I think the following page explains Apples side of this (https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT208436).

    The current version of the Mac client (v5.00.8471.1000) that's available for download was released in December 2016. Will an update for the client be released before the next version of Mac OS comes out?

  7. Add 80072ee2 as a default code to the WSUS Scan Retry Error Codes

    If a SUP/WSUS server is offline or in a disaster situation, clients should be allowed to failover to another SUP.

    Currently if a SUP goes offline, clients simply will never scan again, and this is not an ideal situation.

  9. When Expiring Updates based on Supersedence Rules also Decline them in WSUS

    When SCCM expires updates based on the configured Supersedence Rules it only does so in SCCM, not WSUS. Additionally, SCCM does not approve updates in WSUS.
    Because of these two facts the WSUS Cleanup Wizard will never decline superseded updates. They are neither expired (as they are in SCCM) nor are their superseding updates approved (a requirement for the WSUS Cleanup Wizard). This causes a bloated Update Catalog that can cause very real client issues. There are scripts available to handle this situation but this is the last mile issue in regards to WSUS maintenance. If the product declined theā€¦

  10. New builtin reports about Windows 10 versions and builds

    ConfigMgr has a few reports about operating systems, but they are not suitable with the new Windows 10 world. Please create new Windows 10 related reports. E.g.
    - chart with Windows 10 versions (Ent/Edu/Pro) and build (including click-through to see the actual devices)
    - report that lists devices with a specific Win10 version/build in a collection
    - report with Windows 10 versions/builds in a specific collection

    These are not very difficult to create, but because every Win10 customer needs them, they should be included in the product.

    These are also needed, because:

  11. Allow software update installation at shutdown

    Everyone who knows WSUS misses the feature in ConfigMgr to allow the installation of software updates when the machine is shut down. This is being requested for a very long time now. For most businesses it's not the best approach to install updates only when a user is logged on. Of course the scenario changes with Windows 8 and 10, but it's still a valuable addition to the option a ConfigMgr admin should have.

  12. Better Task Sequence Step Options Tab Editor

    Currently you can only remove and remove all from a task sequence option condition. I think it would be very helpful and time saving if you could copy/cut/paste conditionals from a right click menu.

  15. Software Center: Add support for direct link to application and direct link to installation via protocol handler.

    The new Software Center supports the "Page" command line option, but I could not find a way to jump directly to an app details page (the one that shows the Install button).

    (I'd like to change my application catalog notification tool to open softwarecenter instead of iexplore with the app details page.)

    Additionally it would be nice if the tab/page changes respecting the new command line given when software center is already open.

  16. Set a default or preferred boot image for PXE

    Have an option to set a specific boot image for PXE. In an environment where there are multiple boot images, when a device PXE boots it will first download whichever boot image (that is PXE capable) associated with the most recently deployed task sequence. It would be nice to have an easier way to just set a default or preferred boot image for PXE instead.

  17. Icons and cosmetics for applications

    During the Create Application Wizard on Application Catalog step there is possibility to add some beautiful icon. BUT! The icon (.ico) size is limited to 250x250. Could you make it possible to add an icon file with picture size at least 256x256 (which is quite common size for pictures in .ico files)? Another thing as well, the icons in SCCM Applications/Packages list (Software Library-Overview-Application Management-Applications). They look all the same! Could you make them more attractive, say, the way they look in Application Catalog? Otherwise, whats the point in Icon column (which appears, by the way, as a defaultā€¦

  18. Create an OSD variable for Secure Boot - _SMSTSSecureBootState

    Create an OSD variable for Secure Boot called _SMSTSSecureBootState. It should have three values depending on the state and the currently running OS: Enabled, Disabled, NA. This can be used during a TS to determine if Secure Boot should be enabled. Currently, a TS variable has to be defined and set based on if the registry key exists or not.

  19. Distribution Points are by default NOT assigned the same priority

    CURRENT FUNCTIONALITY

    When a new Distribution Point (DP) whether it is a normal DP or a Pull DP is installed to a ConfigMgr 2012 R2 site, the priority assigned to this new DP is always the same by default.

    REQUEST FOR CHANGE

    It is often desired that Pull DPs are by default assigned lower priority than the normal DPs.

    MORE INFORMATION

    When operating a site with many (hundreds of) DPs installed, the normal DPs serve as source distribution points for the Pull DPs. It is therefore desired, that those normal DPs will have the new package files copied over beforeā€¦
