  1. Remote Control Disconnects When Adding a Printer in Windows 10

    When adding a printer on a Windows 10 client through remote control, the session gets disconnected.

    It looks like others have encountered the same issue:

    Reading through the comments in this it appears that this is a bug report.

    Additionally, it appears that this may not be specifically a problem with Configuration Manager, rather it’s an issue with a system-level component changing state and dropping the remote control session. Does this reproduce when using a vanilla RDP connection?

    I would recommend filing a bug against Windows through Feedback Hub or contacting Support to provide more in-depth troubleshooting on this.

  2. Ignoring drive G:\. Unable to get volume information (HRESULT 3).

    Please eliminate the constant information lines that read "Ignoring drive G:. Unable to get volume information (HRESULT 3)." when distrmgr.log is working on removing Orphaned content from remote distribution points. It is difficult to open the distmgr.log using CMtrace as this file grows rapidly at a fast pace.

  3. PkgXfer.log gives error "Fail to get volume information of drive M:\: " in 1606 SCCM

    PkgXfer.log gives error "Fail to get volume information of drive M:\: " in 1606 SCCM
    It keeps on checking all other drives except C Drive and the one with SCCMContentLib on a remote DP. Placing nosmson_drive.sms does not help. This is not affecting DP Function, just keeps the PkgXfer.log red.

  5. Bug : Registry not exist only Reg_SZ

    This bug exist on 2012R2 and CB 1702

    During OSD, on the option to execute task, when we select "Registry not exist" we canno't select type of registry : "DWord" or "Reg_SZ" it's greyed out

    But during my OSD i want to check if a DWORD not exist to install application, and SCCM choose "REGSZ" I have no choose. ( see attachment ) But during OSD the Task Sequence install my app, even if the DWORD exist because the REGSZ not exist ...

    Can you let the type of value available if we choose registry exist or notā€¦

  6. Powershell: get-cmcollection not returning ObjectPath

    The PowerShell cmdlets Get-CMCollection and Get-CMDeviceCollection/Get-CMUserCollection) returns an empty value for "ObjectPath".

    This is missing in both 1710 and latest TP (currenty 1801).

    This works as expected and ObjectPath = "/":
    Get-WmiObject -namespace "root\sms\site$siteCode" -query "select * from SMSCollection where CollectionID = 'SMS00001'"

    This returns null/empty ObjectPath:
    Get-CMCollection -Id SMS00001

  7. Fix an InsString overflow bug in SMS_StatMsgWithInsStrings / Componet ā€œTask Sequence Engineā€.

    If InsString5 exceeds 254 chars it overflows into InsString6 etc; in the process one character is lost and it also seem to trim trailing blanks making it impossible to merge the attributes, in this case InsString5 and 6, together to the original data.

    The result of the behavior is also found under Monitoring | Deployment | Status | Action Output, where characters are missing in long attribute spanning messages.

  8. Fix "Download content locally when needed by task sequence" option when used on a Task Sequence with pre-cache content enabled

    The pre-cache content option for Task Sequences is great, however it doesn't seem to behave correctly when used with the "Download content locally when needed by task sequence" deployment option.

    The documentation says that if the Task Sequence hasn't finished pre-caching the content before the Task Sequence is executed, it will honor this setting. However, we're finding that it will download the content before running the Task Sequence AND then try to download it again when it moves to each step (so downloading everything twice effectively).

    If you allow time for it to pre-cache then it is fine, but inā€¦

  9. CB1906 - Distmgr is not processinig PKN files due to GETDPCRC check post upgrade

    Following the post upgrade for 1906 with hotfix, the distmgr was taking a lot of time on configuring PXE and doing GetDPCRC. In the mean time, we were trying to do normal content distribution and many PKN files went ignored by distmgr. Restarting SMS_Exec would process these PKN files, but that was not a good solution. I opened a case with Microsoft #17047923. Apparently, this GETDPCRC check is new. Please improve this process so that we can do normal content distribution.

  10. 1803 TP - Custom Software Center tab bug found

    If you put in a custom URL that accepts user input such as BING, and you type anything that starts with A, U, O, I or D it takes you out of the Custom page and drops you into the associated Tab that starts with that letter.

    In this example if you type an "A" it brings you to the Applications tab.

    Type the Word "target" into the Bing tab (see attached screen shot). When you type the "a" it jumps to the Application Tab.

    We have a custom user request workflow URL that we want to embed into Softwareā€¦

  11. fix monitoring distribuition point configuration status error

    I've just upgraded to sccm 1702. From now on, each time I've added a new distribution point an error is shown in monitoring distribution point configuration status. What is really strange is that logs, detail messages and content library seems to be OK. I suppose it's a bug. Could it be fixed with a new patch, please

  12. Fix the issue with Windows 10 image not unmounting during offline servicing

    When I do offline servicing mode for Windows 10 1709, the wim will not unmounts. You have to do other dism commands to get it to unmounts, yet not commit the changes. I started to see this in Configuration Manager 1702 and still doing it in 1710.

  13. Run Scripts - Executes on all computers when selected computer is a duplicate record

    When you run a Powershell Script via "Run Script" feature, if the selected device record is a duplicated record (for example a lab computer re-imaged several times) and also its icon is the "question mark" one (if this helps), SCCM goes crazy and executes the script for all the existing devices.
    That happened to me. Fortunately, the script was harmless. Otherwise we would've had a big problem.
    Please, try and check it asap.

  14. Please fix CSV Export of CM SSRS Reports

    When you export any default report from CM SSRS as CSV, each line of the export contains also the complete header information, makes the report unreadable and not useful for further processing.

  17. Fix typos in the product

    I figured it was time to have a UserVoice item that gathers together all the known misspellings throughout the product. Add your own to the list below making sure to note the version of Configuration Manager. Be sure to indicate where in the console or what log.

  20. Fix CM trace display when line of NULL in the logs

    I noticed that when you open a log file with CMtrace, if there is a line of null, the trace is not able to display the following lines anymore.
    This happens quite often in SCCM clients.
    This has been validated and tested with Microsoft support as well.
    Attached an example.
    Last displayed time = 17:10:55
    Last log entry time = 09:19:15
