  1. Automatic Client upgrades after upgrading Site with Cumulative Update (CU)

    When upgrading your site with a CU, have the clients automatically upgrade as well instead of creating a Package Deployment.

  2. Make automatic client upgrade more intelligent to not break other running installations

    Right now, the automatic Client upgrade scheduled Task is not aware of any running installations. So if appenforce.log shows a running Installation and at the same time the randomly timed scheduled tasks kicks in, the Installation cannot finish without error and will randomly leave the Installation or the SCCM Client itself in a unhealthy state. A reinstallation is the only way out.

    Repro steps
    - Activate automatic Client Upgrade in Hierarchy settings
    - Exclude some test clients from automatic client upgrade
    - Create an Application with a deploymenttype using a custom script
    - As the script, use a batch fileā€¦

  3. Force Client Deployment on metered network

    We have several users who are ALWAYS on metered networks and will never get client updates.

    The client deployment currently does not honour the option "Client Setting - Specify how clients communicate on metered network connections".

    We need an option to override it for manual client deployment / update as well. (Force install checkbox doesn't work)

    Setting the connection to "not metered" in Windows 8.1/10 doesn't work when a 3rd party connection software is used and doesn't work at all for TCT Mobile LTE sticks so this is not a solution.

  5. Explanation on SCCM linux/unix client deprecation

    Why was the SCCM Linux/Unix client deprecated. Some SCCM customers use and depend on this functionality. Why is it no longer being invested in?

  6. 64-bit update for SCCM Mac client

    Since Apple released the 10.13.4 update, whenever we try to install something using the SCCM client, we get an error message saying that Configuration Manager is not optimized for your Mac. I think the following page explains Apples side of this (https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT208436).

    The current version of the Mac client (v5.00.8471.1000) that's available for download was released in December 2016. Will an update for the client be released before the next version of Mac OS comes out?

  7. Add Windows 10 Build Subversion "UBR" collection to the default HINV classes

    The UBR registry key is responsible for displaying the subversion of a Windows 10 build to the end-user. For example 14393.*** where *** is the UBR string. If this is added to the HINV list of default classes this will allow for administrators to retrieve this information!

    This is located in: HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

    UBR REG_DWORD

    This will help administrators differentiate what intermediate builds of Windows 10 they have install and also support patch management because they can easily compare the released patches to the subversion build each month.

  8. Support Evaluation of "On Battery" for Most Client Activities

    To reduce potential for failures due to low battery situations and to minimize the ConfigMgr client's impact to system battery life, introduce a check for certain client actions to allow them to be delayed or bypassed when the system is found to be running on battery or running critically low on battery:
    + Software distribution
    + Compliance settings
    + Inventory
    + Anti-malware scans

  10. Bundle MDOP into SCCM already

    We already get App-V for free for use with RDS, just lets just go value add with this for SCCM. It would make sooooo many people so happy.

    Why can't I use the DaRT unless I have MDOP? Again: the amount of pain it saves in the mass deployment world makes it an awesome add-on.

    I can see why MDOP would be a separate purchase for people who are trying to get away with just MDT ... but for those who paid for SystemCenter and are thus paying for an annual subscription ... these are all things the base SCCMā€¦

  12. I want XP/server2003 lite support in Configmgr 1511 and above

    Stuck with adoption of 1511 blocking multiple customers from upgrading to 1511 that still have mission critical XP systems . (and yes customers are aware and customers are planning to upgrade ASAP ā€¦but it will take them a huge investment )

    An example : I have a customer that is managing with CM12 r2 sp1 roughly 4000 Win7 x64 , 600 XP embedded , 2500 servers , 150 XP professional ,and 300 windows 10 clients .

    Discussed this with Kenny…

    I’m going to mark this as completed – so you can all have your votes back. XP/W2K3 are out of support, but we do not block them in ConfigMgr 1511. They should continue to work as before, and you can “use at your own risk”, and “your mileage may vary”… But they are not blocked by the product. We especially wanted to make sure you could use ConfigMgr + OSD to upgrade those machines from XP → new OSs (which is one of the reasons we don’t block XP/W2k3). If you hit a bug, we won’t necessarily fix it… unless you can repro the bug on a supported OS.

  13. Please do not install Silverlight by default in vNext

    Please do not install Silverlight with ConfigMgr-Client by default in vNext. The new Software Center with the integrated application catalog don't need Silverlight.

  14. SCCM client auto-upgrade by client parameter instead of SCCM Site server

    There are many such agent / clients available in market which can check on vendor web sites for updates and then download and install them. Since SCCM and hub and spoke setup, we can enable SCCM client to perform timely checks on SCCM site servers or DP locations, for any client updates available. If it finds new version, client should download and install the updates.

    This will simplify the overall client upgrade process with recurring upgrade needs in CB model. Also, this will reduce firewall connectivity requirements from Site servers to clients that we normally need for client push. Thisā€¦

  16. Automatic Client upgrades - respect defined maintenance windows

    The function to upgrade clients automatically should be modified so it respect defined maintenance windows.
    If the client upgrade requires a reboot, and it happen outside maintenance windows, it will cause many issues in an enterprise environment.

  17. wake on lan

    Wake on LAN server role

    Today there is a possibility to enable Wake on LAN proxy role. But this is for clients and also require that there is at least 3 devices that can have this role. And there are issues with support for 802.1x networks.

    Many of our locations are small, and we may not guarantee that we have any devices running. But each location have a dedicated server that run the distribution point role. So why not be able to add a dedicated WOL proxy role on servers instead of the clients?

    This way we could also limitā€¦

  19. Add Client Cache configuration node to Client Settings object

    As of right now, Client Settings are configurable during the installation of the client via command-line or via the client-side interface. I believe it would be beneficial to allow this setting to be configured via Client Settings as one organization could have a variety of different use-cases for creating disparate client cache baselines.
