  1. Server Groups - Increase Length of Drain and Resume Scripts

    The drain and resume scripts are currently limited to 512 characters each. I know there is currently a request to add native cluster aware patching support, but it would be a great start to simply increase the size limit of the scripts. It doesn't seem like there is a safe way to "drain" a server from a cluster to prep it for patching in a mere 512 characters, especially considering that we have to use up some of those characters to return the correct exit code.

    We can run some pretty complex and lengthy scripts in configuration items and baselines,ā€¦

  2. Server Groups - Run As Option

    There are times when the drain and resume scripts may need to run as an account other than the local system account of the server. We often support "clustered" servers that rely on a clustering method or data outside of Windows fail-over clustering (Exchange being a good example, but not the only use-case).
    It would be nice to specify a run-as account for these scripts in order to reach out to external systems using a service account in order to authenticate to those systems for any required health checks prior to patching (drain script) or after patching (resume script). Weā€¦

  3. Right-click Collection Deployments to View Deployment Status

    I find it would be handy when viewing deployments to a collection, if a Right-Click option existed to view status - i.e. open the deployment status (Monitoring/Deployments/[Deployment]/Status).

  5. Exclude C:\Windows\WinSxS from Software Inventory

    A skpswi.dat file cannot be added to the folder C:\Windows\WinSxS because of the folder permissions. There needs to be a way to prevent files in this folder from being inventoried.

  6. Software metering per collection

    in a service provider environment (ie. share infrastructure between companies), having the software metering enabled by site as opposite per collection can cause an extra network flow (ie. company 1 needs to monitor outlook.exe while company 2 mozilla.exe).

    current software will force all clients to look for outlook.exe as well as mozilla.exe and this could cause performance issue, this also could be a security issue as the information of the monitoring software is stored on the client computer and if the client is monitoring the execution of a software that will be launched, this info will also be available toā€¦

  7. Export collection members

    Exporting member of collection to excel sheet is though easy but for large number or members (say more than 20K), it takes time to get them exported in the excel. MS should put the 2007 feature back which was just right click on collection and "Export Objects".

  8. Add Win32_DeviceGuard WMI Class

    Request to add the Win32_DeviceGuard WMI Class into Configuration Manager Hardware Inventory by default. This is a crucial WMI class that we can query Virtualization Based Security configurations on systems. Right now we have to manually add the class as described in the following blog:

  9. Collection link in deployments

    When viewing a deployment, make the collection it's deployed to a link. So I can easily view it's membership. Right now I have to stop viewing the deployment and jump over to assets wunderbar and hunt down the collection. In a large environment this is time consuming, especially if you are using both device and user based deployments.

  11. Expand Software Tag inventory to include optional elements

    Some software vendors include optional elements that are not gathered by the Asset Intelligence Software Tag Inventory. Adobe for example places the serial number in this section, and without being able to gather that serial number its impossible to tell what version of Acrobat is installed on a PC without writing convoluted scripts/CIs. Please expand the software tag inventory scan to include optional elements. Example of an Adobe software tag below

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <swid:software_identification_tag xsi:schemaLocation="http://standards.iso.org/iso/19770/-2/2008/schema.xsd software_identification_tag.xsd"

  12. Hardware Inventory for User Profiles

    Since ConfigMgr is now more user centric, it would be nice if user specific settings(registry) are discoverable via Hardware Inventory ( or a new inventory function. I would not consider this a DCM as we are looking to query and report on the data that is on the users profile vs a DCM which checks for compliance. Example would be something like if a user has a proxy set, what is it. Another example would be discovering all the trusted sites a user has configured. This would help us identify sites that we may need to include in a GPOā€¦

    Is this really any collection? or just all systems / all users?

  14. Count of device status should pops once came to Online

    Once the machine came to ONLINE from Offline - It should shows as a count status in that left corner of collection E.g., Out of 2000 clients if 500 machines are in ONLINE then count should be 500 in the left corner of that device collection.

  16. Make MEMCM WOL succeed on large subnets

    We have problems waking up clients with subnet directed broadcast on large subnets.

    We can see that one MEMCM server can issue 6-7.000 WOL requests in one second.

    Unfortunately not all targeted machines are powered on, when MEMCM issues this massive amount of WOL packages.

    Network traces have shown, that all WOL packages arrives to the subnets, but many machines fails to power on.

    There can be many reasons for this, UEFI config, network topology and so on, but we have found another problem, that might explain this issue.

    We have tried to send a WOL package to 250 machinesā€¦

    If 'Collection Variables' could be made available in the full OS as an environmental variables, I can then start to control other deployments, i.e. applications, based on the collection they are in.

  20. Allow maintenance window schedules to be applied to reboots

    In scenarios where you do not want a workstation or server to be rebooted, any rogue or untrained admin with rights could deploy something to the device without suppressing reboots.

    Would it be possible to allow Maintenance Windows to be applied for reboots? This would allow admins to create collections of machines that would only reboot during a set schedule and ensure that the settings cannot be overridden by a deployment.

    I could also see this being done via Client Settings, but that would be 24/7 not restricted to a maintenance window.
