  1. Fix OSD Re-run Behavior

    Consider the following...

    You Deploy an OSD TS to a Lab and the Lab images Successfully. Next year you wish to Refresh that same Lab. You deploy this TS to the lab with the default 'Re-run Behavior' and it immediately shows as Successful because it was run before. You do another schedule and switch the 'rerun behavior' to 'Always rerun.' Lab images, grabs policy, images, grabs policy, images.........

    This seems like a huge flaw to me especially for those environments that Refresh certain Labs annually (K-12, Education). I'll now have to remember each Summer to either create a new TS…

  2. DCR: OSD Task Sequence - Create Baseline of existing TS and allow Remediation

    From my field experience I have seen many times OS Deployments which did not really succeed, because of Continue on error conditions. In most cases the reason was to not end up with systems staying in Provisioning Mode. I know some guys just "re-deploy" the TS with checks if everything was done properly. This brought up the idea - why not using Compliance Settings for this purpose? At least to check if the system meets the Desired Baseline. Everything needed should be stored in the Task Sequence anyway and it would allow a "Report" summary client side after Deployment.

  3. Install Software updates TS step improvements

    The "Install Software Updates" TS step could use some improvements, including adding an option to run a package after the reboots (before update step continue), and customizing the restart time-out and messages. The status messages are also pretty vague. For example, we know that after it installs the updates it can check for updates again, but it doesn't actually say when it's doing that. I've also noticed some blank black screens showing up for at least a minute as it is about to reboot.

  4. Re-think task sequence policy download in OS

    Currently deployed task sequences create a lot of policy download and slow down the initialisation of a workstation. If they worked like in bootable media, or another way - I don't know if say downloading the TS policies as a zip would help?

  6. Ability to see/change available task sequences list order

    A computer may be member of several collections. When we deploy multiple task sequences to different collections, available task sequences list changes when computer is booting from PXE. So, we need to check the list order, after deploying new task sequence. Also, first task sequence is selected automatically and users are inclined to select the first one.
    It is now alphabetic order, but we should see the list order without booting PXE and maybe we can change the order or set a task sequence to the top.

  7. Allow app to RETRY during Task Sequence

    There is currently an option to allow the TS step to retry if the computer unexpectedly reboots. Would it be possible to add an option to retry the app installation if it fails, so that the entire TS doesn't fail? Would be useful when there's a network glitch that interrupts an app/pkg download, or if an app just has a hiccup and would have worked fine the second time around.

    Desired options would be number of retries and delay between retries (to give the network glitch time to clear itself up for example).

  8. Let the TSAgent consume enough RAM in VMs configured with Dynamic Memory for OSD compatibility checks to succeed

    Setup: Hyper-V Gen2 VM configured with 1GB startup RAM, Min 512MB, Max 4GB.

    I was testing servicing Windows 10 1511 to Windows 10 1607 on my VM and the compatibility check failed because the VM was only consuming 1560MB at the time of the compatibility check. I'd think that it would be able to tell if the VM's maximum RAM value was higher than the minimum RAM requirement for Windows 10.

  9. Allow running PowerShell script synchronously during Task Sequence

    When using the Run PowerShell script step in a Task Sequence, the Task Sequence waits for the completion of the script before continuing.

    It would be useful to have a "Run Synchronously" option to allow the Task Sequence to continue to the next step without waiting for the script to complete.

    At the moment I use the command line CMD /C START Powershell.exe to achieve this goal.

  10. Dynamic Variable switch/case

    Instead of making a dozen If/Then/Set dynamic variable statements, allow some form of creating a switch statement to assign variables.

    E.g. if I want to assign a variable based on SMSTSModel
    Switch
    SMSTSModel
    case "Latitude 5600"
    Set MyVar = "Value"
    case "EliteBook G4 840"
    Set MyVar = "Value2"
    case Default
    Set MyVar = ""
