  1. Save-CMSoftwareUpdate error RPC server unavailable when connecting under a different account

    My idea is to have the scenario described below supported.

    When running Save-CMSoftwareUpdate command on a CMSite-PSDrive that connects to a ConfigMgr site in a different domain (used Get-Credential to pass credentials in New-PSDrive call) than the user account the PowerShell window is running as, I get error 'The RPC server is unavailable'.

    I can successfully change location to the PS drive, and run other ConfigMgr PS cmdlets.

    Commands:
    New-PSDrive -Name <sitecode> -PSProvider 'CMSite' -Root <siteserverFQDN> -Credential (Get-Credential)
    Set-Location <sitecode>:
    Save-CMSoftwareUpdate -SoftwareUpdateName <name> -DeploymentPackageName <name> -Verbose

    Verbose output from Save-CMSoftwareUpdate call:

    VERBOSE: Start: Execution of WQL query: Select * fromā€¦

  3. Add a vendor parameter to Get-CMSoftwareUpdate

    This will help identify updates from specific vendors that have been provided through Third-party Software Update Catalogues.

  5. Run Scripts: Allow Renaming the script

    Provide ability to rename scripts. We'd like ability to differentiate between test and production scripts or rename if the functionality changes. Or, just have the ability to fix typos without recreating the script/approvals.

  7. Incorrect Icon Size When Using New-CMApplication and Set-CMApplication

    When using New-CMApplication or Set-CMApplication with the IconLocationFile parameter and an icon at least 128x128 in size, the application is created with a very small icon. I am not certain if smaller icons are effected.

  8. Allow "uninstall content settings" to be modified using PowerShell

    Monthly updating of applications like FlashPlayer, Java, Chrome, Reader DC, Office 365 Client, etc. are repetitive and tedious, so I like to automate monthly applications updates as much as possible. When creating a new application using powershell, I cannot set the "Uninstall content setting" located under the Deployment Type and the Content tab. This allows me to save on downloading large sets of files to uninstall when either an "MSIEXEC /X {GUID}" handles it with no files required, or something like Office 365 Client where 1.5 GB is needed to install, but only 5MB or so to uninstall.

    The commandā€¦

  9. New-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment missing -RequirePostRebootFullScan option.

    The New-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRuleDeployment command is missing the -RequirePostRebootFullScan option. This should be added similar to the New-CMSoftwareUpdateDeployment command.

  10. Transaction support for PowerShell cmdlets

    today when using powershell cmdlet the action is performed direct against the server, as example, if you want to create an application, add couple of deployment types and perform other small changes, you end up with lots of revisions (easily, 10). when you have lots of revisions, this start to impact the performance.

    it would be nice if we can have the cmdlets transactional, in this case, you create the object and the changes does not apply to the database, you need to "save" the change.

    on the application example, you could create the application, create the dt's, changes, etc.ā€¦

  11. Ability to run scripts from the SCCM server, like a built in Web Service

    Adding the ability to run powershell scripts on a SCCM site server when called from a Task Sequence or Compliance item.

    Some scripts need special rights or modules that are not available to Users or client devices. (ActiveDirectory, ConfigManager actions)

    Being able to add these scripts in the SCCM console and have them ran from a call back from the client or Task Sequence would save running multiple Web Services on the server.

  12. Run Scripts: Need cmdlets to support feature

    Create cmdlets for the new in console Powershell scripts. Some good ones would be new Script Deployment and get script results.

    EX:
    New-CMPSScriptDeployment -Name "Script Name" -CollectionName "Collection Name"

  13. Add query based parameters for script

    It would be nice to have the option to add some query based parameters for script (WQL or SQL). So values for parameters could be dynamic based on a query and scope of the user who trigger the script.

    i.e. We could have hiding deployments (without any notifications to the end users), then the admin user could select application or updates from the list to enforce deployment.

  14. Get-CMDetectionClause

    Could we have a get-cmdetectionclause command? I'd like to be able to get an existing detection clause for a deployment which would be useful for not only managing existing detection clauses but being able to explore and re-using them for other applications.

    As it is right now I use get-cmapplication | get-cmdeploymenttype | select SDMPackageXML in order to view the detection method as XML.

  15. Run Scripts: Actions for Power Shell scripts in SCCM console.

    We would glad to use opportunity for clearing "Script Status", re-run expired scripts and modify scripts without deleting them. We need to ran Scripts several times, and want to clear not needed statuses.

  16. Save-CMSoftwareUpdate has no option to select the download source

    The Admin-Console is capable to download Softwareupdates from WSUS or a Networkshare wsuscontent). But there ist no commandlet for that. Save-CMSoftwareUpdate seems to be the commandlet for that. If so, than the parameters for the source are missing.

  17. Save-CMSoftwareUpdate - Add parameter to specify download source path (UNC\Network)

    When using this cmdlet to download updates from an update group into an update package, where is the download source and is it possible to specify a custom location?

    For example, if I wanted to specify my download source as a WSUS content folder on another server I could I do something like this.
    Save-CMSoftwareUpdate -SoftwareUpdateGroupName $mySUG -DeploymentPackageName $mySUPkg -SoftwareUpdateLanguage "English" -DownloadLocation "\myWsusServer\wsuscontent"

    This would be helpful in the following scenario, let's say we have a stand-alone primary that cannot be connected to the internet due to a business requirement, but has access to an upstream WSUS server that downloadsā€¦

  18. Add a cmdlet to delete (or at least disable) a Client Settings deployment (cmclientsettingsdeployment)

    There is currently no cmdlet to delete or disable a deployment of Client Settings. You can create a deployment by using the Start-CMClientSettingDeployment cmdlet but there is absolutely no way of stopping, deleting, or disabling the deployment. If you run a Get-CMDeployment against a collection, it only returns all deployments except a Client Setting.

  19. Allow use if DeploymentID as identifier in Set-CMPackageDeployment and Set-CMSoftwareUpdateDeployment

    Set-CMPackageDeployment and Set-CMSoftwareUpdateDeployment do not allow DeploymentID as unique identifier. Instead you need to use e.g. programname and packageid.

    In the case of Set-CMSoftwareUpdateDeployment this requires DeploymentName which is not even possible to retrieve from Get-CMDeployment

    Please, allow DeploymentID as an option to identifying the deployment in these cmdlets.

  20. Run Scripts: Create Collection based off of results

    The scripts feature provides a powerful feature to provide real time information on an enterprise, that hardware inventory may not provide. It would be very helpful if you could create a collection based on the results of Script, or add the machines to an existing collection natively through the CM Console.
