How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Include seperate client push settings for workstations and servers

We would like the ability to have seperate client push settings for Workstations vs Servers, specifically the ability to have seperate installation properties.

        We use different drive path for desktops and servers when for client install and client cache path. We also set different cache size for each platform too.

        There are client prereqs such as Silverlight that create vulnerabilities on servers that do not require the use of the Application catalog. Since there is currently no way to create separate client installations those servers must have the client manually installed. Additionally, if an automated client repair is attempted the undesired prereqs are then installed.

        We would like to be able to do separate switches when doing client push via workstations or servers. Specifically in our environment we do separate install and log directories along with a different initial cache size on the client install for servers and workstations.
