How can we improve Configuration Manager?

Create a PowerShell cmdlet too add/edit/remove duplicate hardware identifiers

New-CMDuplicateHardwareIdentifier
Set-CMDuplicateHardwareIdentifier
Remove-CMDuplicateHardwareIdentifier

Please create cmdlets to add/edit/remove duplicate hardware identifiers. We have a large organization and those pesky Lenovo Yoga's get a USB to Ethernet dongle with each one. We have over 500 dongles currently, and I don't see a way to automate importing those MAC addresses. Thanks!

        Need a better GUI or scripted method to make this process easier for dealing with multiple MAC addresses to be whitelisted at once.

        yes please, this needs to be more manageable in larger environments as the smaller form factor devices become more popular!

        Going to give this a vote.
        We are starting to get more and more devices in our org that don't have built in network adapters and so we need to use dongles for OSD. With many locations, many dongles will be purchased going forward.

        Currently i have a script to register all dongles used during OSD so we can manually add them to the "DHI" list, but with it lacking simple copy/paste functionality, getting commands for this so we can automate the adding would be fantastic.

        I absolutely would love this. Either a Powershell module or a direct csv import option of bulb mac addresses for these USB dongles would be great.

        We are in the same boat, adding hundreds of USB Dongle MAC addresses into SCCM one at a time can be VERY time-consuming.
