  1. Allow the Client Upgrade to be performed outside maintenance windows

    We would like the Client Upgrade feature to allow the client to be upgraded outside of maintenance windows but also give the option to only install when no user is logged in, like deploying Applications allow.

    • Enable HTTP content locations for source files

      Enable the use of HTTP and HTTPS locations as source locations for content. With the increaseing use of GitHub and binary repositories like Artifactory the ability to use HTTP locations as content locations for applications and packages would be greatly helpful in managing and distributing the a content in an efficient manner within SCCM.

      • Adjustable Window Sizes within Admin Console

        It would be nice to have the ability to adjust window sizes within the console. As an example, the Membership rule window in the collection properties only has enough room to show 2 lines. Being able to maximize or edit to a custom size and have the console remember these sizes would be great.

        This could be incorporated into the fixes that are being introduced with the High DPI resolutions.

          Doing this everywhere in the console would be expensive/difficult. Rather than wait to make any improvement until the time we can fix it all… I’m curious what the top 10 most important places to fix are. I’m thinking we fix those first, and then go from there.

        • Include orchestration of software updates especially for tiered solutions

          Today it's only possible to orchestrate software updating based on a membership in collections.
          This is however rarely enough for more complex setups where you might have back-, middle-, and front tiers in your setup.

          Therefore I recommend adding a dependency system between computer objects, so that you can orchestrate at least the following:
          1) Which tier of servers are patched first, second and third etc.
          2) Reboot order between the different tiers which includes an accept of one tier being fully patched and rebooted before the next tier is begun updating.
          3) Ability to choose between warning or rollback…

          • Give more granular control over the 2 hour SUP failover timeout

            Currently, failover from one SUP to another SUP is always at least 2 hours. Even with the new Boundary Group design, with controllable failovers - the minimum is still 2 hours. Allow admins to control that minimum, and set it smaller than 2 hours.
