  3. Make client CIM methods work over WinRM

    Currently using Invoke-CimMethod will fail on remote clients unless you use a CimSession with a CimSessionOption specifying the DCOM protocol.

    The server side classes work great with CIM cmdlets, it'd be great if there were parity there with the client classes, especially since PowerShell 6.0 doesn't include the WMI cmdlets that people will gravitate toward to use DCOM.

  4. CMTrace should be available outside of product installation

    Need to make this available outside of the CD.Latest folder on the site server. This is used for cloud-only intune customers that don't have a site server.

    Thanks for your feedback. Intune customers should also be entitled to Configuration Manager which licenses them to use CMTrace in their environments. We have no plans to distribute it as a standalone download but there are options.

    You can copy it from an existing Current Branch site from the cd.latest folder to other machines, or you can get it from the Configuration Manager 2012 R2 Toolkit at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=50012.

    We can and do make improvements to CMTrace in CB releases, so my recommendation is to get it from the cd.latest folder but if you are in an environment where there is no Configuration Manager at all, you can use the version from the R2 toolkit.

  5. Add PowerShell cmdlet to update Application Catalog icons in Software Center.

    Add cmdlet to update Application Catalog icons in Software Center.

    We currently store icons in the root of the app content folder and manually right-click on the Application object located in \Software Library\Overview\Application Management\Applications.

    Then we click the Aplication Catalog tab and click the Browse button to browse to an update icon.

    This manual works, but having the ability to automate via a cmdlet automated would allow a mass update and could make it easier when transferring or integrating ConfigMgr ecosystems in the event of a merger or acquisition.

  6. Bring back readyforwindows.com

    Bring back readyforwindows.com. Not everyone uses CM. readyforwindows.com contained public domain knowledge that was very handy. We can even look up software versions that we may consider evaluating that are not even in our environment yet. readyforwindows.com was a valuable resource that is sorely missed. We feel like we are now flying blind without it.

  9. Console GPU Usage

    I have noticed through task manager that the Configuration Manager Console uses a fair amount of GPU. For my particular laptop, it is about 20% of the 3D engine on my GPU.

    If I could toggle a power saving feature for the console, which would reduce the GPU usage in some way, it would help increase the length of battery power on my laptop.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    The console is built upon the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) framework. By default, this framework will use GPU hardware acceleration and rendering when it can. (More details at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/wpf/advanced/optimizing-performance-taking-advantage-of-hardware)

    We shouldn’t be doing a lot in the way of computationally heavy graphical operations in the console, but there may be room for optimizations in some UI areas.

    If you see any specific areas that seem to be harder on the GPU please send us a frown from that specific UI area so we can look into it.

  10. License

  11. Allow pause software distribution

    There should be a way to pause or stop package distributions (not deployment). Sometimes a large package will inadvertently be distributed to distribution points during the day or overnight (very large package) and clogs the pipeline. Having the ability to pause or stop or reschedule those distributions would be helpful - especially when an e-fix needs to be distributed quickly but can't be distributed due to traffic.

    We should already have several tools in place to control content distributions.

    • You can set schedules for a distribution point to prevent or limit when data can be sent. You can also set rate limits.
    • You can cancel a content distribution that’s in progress
    • You can put a distribution point into maintenance mode which will cancel any in progress distributions and block future distributions until it’s taken out of maintenance mode

    Let us know if none of these work for your scenario.

  12. Software Center using White color is broken.

    Change is needed in Software Center, when selecting White as color background the font color stays white as well so unable to see. It should change to black.

  13. Status message

    It would be usefull to allow the creation of StatusMessages for any event.
    This could be tuned in DefaultClientSettings (just as hinv classes), but setting it only thru PSH would be a first step.

    For example, when a user requests an app:

    new-CMStatusMessageDefinition -class "SMS_UserApplicationRequest" -event "CreateRequest" -messageid 33333 -strings ($ciid,$username,$devicename,$usercomment...)

    This is a complicated problem, and not one we plan to address at this time. There are some solutions today with varied levels of usability.

    We do have a special status message class on the client designed for some extensibility: SMS_UnknownMessage. You can specify custom values for this and have it get processed by the management point. The management point has a list of status message types it accepts, and we have no mechanism for extending this at this time. You can also have a component that writes custom status messages directly to the site server inbox. You could theoretically write whatever you want here, but you need to take care to ensure that this is properly secured and monitored since you need to be a trusted user to write to the status inbox.

    Keep in mind that even if you do get custom status messages processed by the site,ā€¦

  14. Extensions for Windows Intune

    It should be possible that extensions for Windows Intune can be installed without adminrights while opening the Admin Console after the Extension is activated.

  15. Add Tenant ID and Service Instance to the Microsoft Intune Subscription View in Admin Console

    It is always hard to find tenantID, Onmicrosoft.com address and Service Instance when managing Intune in Hybrid.
    It would be of great help if we could get this information in the Microsoft Intune Subscription View in the ConfigMgr Admin Console

  16. Allow New-CMTaskSequenceMedia cmdlet to add empty variables

    When creating Task Sequence Media with the Admin Console, you have the ability to create empty variables. However, when you attempt to do the same thing with the New-CMTaskSequenceMedia PowerShell cmdlet, you get this error:

    New-CMTaskSequenceMedia : The variable value should not be empty.

    Sample code:

    $TSVariable = @{ 'OSDComputerName' = '' }
    New-CMTaskSequenceMedia -StandaloneMedia -TaskSequenceDistributionPoint $TSDistributionPoints -MediaPath "$TSMediaPath\$($TaskSequence.Name).iso" -MediaInputType CdDvd -MediaSize SizeUnlimited -TaskSequence $TaskSequence -Variable $TSVariable

  17. Export functionality for user data/profile, remote connection profile, and company resource access features

    This is a DCR from one of our MVPs. The ask is for the same export feature that exists for configuration baselines and configuration items be available for:
    * User data/profiles
    * Remote connection profiles
    * Company resource access profiles, such as:
    - * VPN profiles
    - * Wi-Fi profiles
    - * Email profiles
    - * Certificate profiles

    The MVP also states that, "the history is important for auditing purposes as well as rollback in case of non-authorized changes.

    If this is important to you, please vote this up!

  18. Add the certificate used to sign the PS module during install

    Add the certificate used to sign the PowerShell module to trusted publisher during installation. It is cumbersome to script around and the certificate itself should be trusted anyway.

    This is an implementation detail of PowerShell and not something we plan to fix. It is possible to work around this by using Get-AuthenticodeSignature to get the signing certificate from ConfigurationManager.psd1. You can then write this certificate to Cert:\LocalMachine\TrustedPublisher. This should prevent the trust prompt from appearing.

    Note that this certificate can change from release to release.

    I hope this helps reduce some of the pain here.

  19. Improve documentation for OMS connector setup procedure

    If you walk through the documentation for setting up the OMS connector, the guide is a little vague, it covers the connection - assuming that all went perfect and connected with out a problem.
    I'm following the guides as outlined here ;https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/log-analytics/log-analytics-sccm#provide-configuration-manager-with-permissions-to-oms

    Step #3 > Step #4.. doesn't cover the scenario where the azure subscription drop-downs are blank.

    Step #4 simply says "If you accomplished all the other procedures successfully".. so what do you do when it doesn't ?

    It gives no indication on what to look for. I did find another guide from here https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Configure-OMS-Connection-9c9e6bc3, but thisā€¦
