  1. Possibility to reduce SMSbackup database size

    Is it possible to provide another option to back up SCCM database during SMSBackup so that the database size can be reduced?

  2. Updates and servicing should honor file replication schedule

    With 1702 was a 1gb download, secondary sites over a sat link were congested beyond their transfer windows. It would great if the next distribution used both binary differencing as well as honoring the replication schedule

  4. preserve permissions on cd.latest folder after CM update

    After applying an SCCM update via in-console servicing, permissions on the cd.latest folder are not retained. This requires any process/account backing up the cd.latest folder to have read access re-granted after every SCCM update.

  6. Management Point Health Alert

    When adding an MP, the box "Generate alert when MP is not health" is never checked by default. Should be checked by default, and why is this even an option? I don't see a scenario where an Admin wouldn't want to know the MP isn't health.

  7. Wake on LAN should be possible to trigger from the CAS

    It will be a nice thing if the WOL can be done from the CAS based on the site assignment of the client.

  8. prerequisite

    If prerequisite checker fails with a warning there should be an option to continue with the upgrade anyway.

  9. Upgrade from 1610 to 1702

    There seems to be a bug with the pre-req check for the MP upgrade. MSXML6 check fails then the MP fails to install. I had to run ccmclean /client then restart server. Then the MP installed and the 1702 upgrade completed.

  10. Make the restore option easy to implement

    Currently the restore process can be done only if the machine has the same name. It would be nice to have an option to restore the Primary site on a machine with a different name and higher operating system. Also provide some added intelligence for the restore process with a check list interface enabling administrators to check if the pre-requisites are met. This would also help in a DR scanario with standby servers.

  12. Prioritize < mb/gb Content to distribute

    When I commission a new DP I send content from the PS where I can't use pull from a nearer DP. This includes many apps and OS images, updates etc. Many apps are easily less that 50 mb (75% of the content) and update packages and OS images are much larger (25%). I know I can prioritise the distribution for each app but often the requirement is for these small apps first so we can make use of our service. Sites tend to test OSD over a longer period and we set Update to go to MS if unavailable.

    I…

  13. Have templates for Windows Server Roles that Site Systems use when deploying

    When installing site systems like SUP I want to have specified an template for how Windows Server should be configured like IIS, WSUS Application Pool etc. in addition to installing the WinSrv Roles. This can bed slightly different from customer to customer and would make it easier for them to deploy new Site Systems with a consistency. Stability would go up and troubleshooting would be easier. Thinking about all Site System roles, not only SUP.

  14. When upgrading, test for high CPU usage on SQL

    Ran into an issue when upgrading from v1606 to v1610 that the SQL failed to run due to high CPU usage (SQL was being ran on a separate box). Was not noticed until after the upgrade had already started. Maybe one of the pre-req checks for upgrading to SCCM is to look at the average CPU usage by SQL to see if that host will complete the upgrade in a timely manner and reduce the risk of failing.

  15. Issues after upgrading to 1706

    I’ve updates to 1706 in my lab. There are a few things that they don’t work appropriate way.
    1) Log compmon.log said that “Can not get the current execution state for component CONFIGURATIONMANAGERUPDATE since it is not installed or completed installing.”. That is not true.The update process is finished. The console said all tasks were completed.
    2) Configuration Manager Service Manager does not communicate with most of components. I have no idea why because they work

  16. Non Matching Custom Port DP Sharing/Migration Support

    Would like to see the product support moving from a 2012 hierarchy which is using custom ports for client communication and IIS bindings, into a CB hierarchy that is using default ports. My understanding is that both environments need to match exactly from a port perspective and we have over 400 remote DP's that will need to be removed manually from SCCM 2012, reimaged and then redeployed as remote DP in CB all over slow links. We have no internet connectivity options for a cloud DP scenario in these location (like China). This will significantly delay our migration globally to…

  17. Upgrading Secondary Site Servers to 1802 failed due to prereqs detection

    At a customer I've updated the Primary Site Server to 1802, this went without problems. The customer has 7 sec.sites. From ConfigMgr Console I started the upgrade which failed. In ConfigMgrSetup.log it stated that the SQLSysClrTypes.msi failed to install (see attachment). This prerequisite was already installed on the server. Also the 'Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Management Object’ was already installed. Which eventually gave the same issue.
    I've worked around the issue by removing the MSI Installer registrations of these 2 prereqs in the registry. The upgrade was now able to end successful.
    Somehow the Upgrade sequence doesn't check if these…
