Content Version Rollback - Rollback Package Contents to Previous Version
From time to time, we need to rollback Content to a previous version. This is all done manually, and actually bumps the Content Version and forces us to redistribute the content to both DPs & Clients. When we have to do this with large packages (Upgrade Media), it causes a lot of extra network traffic.
I'd like the ability to Rollback from version N to N-1, literally have the content version go from 6 to 5.
Challenges: This would mean you'd have to keep N-1 of the Content on the DPs (Dedup would make this almost a non-issue)
Pros: Currently the ConfigMgr Client Cache keeps all versions of the content it has downloaded, so if a Client has previous downloaded the older version of the content, when you ROLLBACK the content version from 6 to 5, if the Client already had 5, it wouldn't have to download again. Currently, if you have to revert to older content, you end up increasing the content version, so even though the client already has that content (N-1 or version 5), it will have to download it all over again (N+1 or version 7).
