  1. Run Software Inventory in a seperate thread

    We often see systems where Hardware Inventory and Heartbeat are lagging because they are waiting for Software Inventory to finish.

  2. reboot pending reporting

    Could you implement a reboot pending check in the console ?

    this is not an easy way to implement reporting on it :

  3. AD System, User, Group Discovery - Discovery 'description' attribute by default

    The 'description' field very regularly used to note important contextual information about AD objects and their purpose. The description information should be discovered from Active Directory by default so it is available to both help understand objects in ConfigMgr and for use with building collection membership queries.

  4. heartbeat discovery

    Please make Heartbeat discovery more event driven versus scheduled based. Any changes that are now reported back through heartbeat discovery could probably be reported through the BGB channel more realtime

  6. use Reliability Monitor/SystemStabilityIndex in inventory, client health and cmpivot

    System Reliability Monitor is the integrated Windows 10 Troubleshooting tool which is a filter to the eventlog, looking at performance and stability related information
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/technet-magazine/dd362384(v=msdn.10)
    For example you can find out since you installed a driver or app the system gets unstable

    this data should be used in #configmgr client health, inventory and cmpivot

    There is an number, the SystemStabilityIndex

    get-wmiobject Win32_ReliabilityStabilityMetrics -property "SystemStabilityIndex" | select-object -first 1 SystemStabilityIndex

    Based on that we could create collections of good and bad performing machines or query cmpivot

  7. Correct IP-subnet Description on Active Directory Forest Discovery

    Make Active Directory Forest Discovery also fetch proper IP-Subnet Description set on AD. Not that generic "site.local/sitename/0.0.0.0/mask"

  8. Cluster virtual name should not appear as a device in discovered inventory - at least there should be an way to exclude them from Collection

  9. Allow different Discovery Schedules for each configured location

    We have many Discovery locations configured but we do not need discovery to run against them all on the same schedule. For example, we have many smaller domains where new objects are rarely created. We should be able to discover these environments less often than a workstations OU in our primary domain. The option to set both the Full and Delta discoveries would be ideal. This could extend to group and other discovery types as well.

  10. Active Directory System Discovery - Add check to only discover supported OS

    It would be great if only supported OS:es are imported into ConfigMgr when using AD System Discovery, CM1702 agent will break some XP computers so why import the object into CM ? or perhaps add logics to filter system discovery from AD.

  11. Force AD Group Discovery to stay inside the configured domain

    We have a sub domain configured in AD group discovery for our site. However in our various AD groups we have users of that specific domain along with users from other sub domains in the forest. When group discovery runs, it escapes outside of our domain and tries to discover these users in the other domains. that dramatically slows down the discovery process to the point it can take more than 24 hours. I would love a check box option in group discovery to strictly limit discovery of users and groups to only the domain that is configured for theā€¦

  13. Discovery Wild Card Support

    We have thousands of groups for security and role based administration, often in the same OU's as the groups used for software distribution. Please provide the ability to specify a filer on the name of the groups that will be discovered so we don't have to discover unneeded groups. Example: "SU*" would discovery all groups that begin with "SU".

  15. Registering network devices or printing devices.

    I would suggest the power option register within the SCCM network devices
    (Router, Switch, Access Point), network printers, my suggestion reflects a problem that meeting the clients.
    Since they always ask if it is possible to register these devices.
    My initial suggestion for registration may contain the following fields:
    - Device name;
    - Combobox if the device Network or device Printing;
    - IP address of the device;
    - Device location;
    - Device manufacturer;
    - Device model;
    For this active control of the company stands out, often the customer registers it in a spreadsheet.
    Say this registration is possible to achieveā€¦

  18. Exclude certain operating systems from discovery

    It would be great if we could exclude certain OS's from discovery. I have over 5500 machines in my DB that I couldn't care less about but they reside in an OU where I have machines I do care about.

  19. On CAS imported object will be deleted by the registration on Primary Site and a new object will be created on thePrimary.

    CAS and Primary.
    Some clients try to reregister and do not manage to do this.
    The Clients send in the registration request the ImportedMachineIdentity out of the SMSCFG.INI, and this will be used in the Stored Procedure MPIsClientRegistered.
    exec MP
    IsClientRegistered ....

    ImportedMachineIdentity is not available in theDatabase (CAS or PRI), and registration fails. If we delete the ImportedMachineIdentity from SMSCFG.INI, can the Client register without issues.

    Here are the repro steps :
    1. Import Computer (that does not exist in DB) . DO it on CAS an based on MAC.
    2. Install Computer using OSD Tasksequence on Primaryā€¦

  20. force client discovery restricted by AD container

    when you want to force client discovery, it is done on all containers set in discovery settings. It will be easier to be able to force discovery for for single container (discovery on all containers can take hours - not easy for testings when new container is added).
