  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Issues after upgrading to 1706

    Iā€™ve updates to 1706 in my lab. There are a few things that they donā€™t work appropriate way.
    1) Log compmon.log said that ā€œCan not get the current execution state for component CONFIGURATIONMANAGERUPDATE since it is not installed or completed installing.ā€. 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

  5. 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 toā€¦

  6. 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 Objectā€™ 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 theseā€¦

  10. FIX Bitlocker for MPs in Untrusted Forests

    FIX Bitlocker for MPs in Untrusted Forests - We use SCCM across untrusted forests. Upon upgrading to SCCM 1910 and implementing the integrated Bitlocker Management (integrated MBAM) we cannot install the Bitlocker websites on the MPs in the untrusted forest.

    For Site Server high availability, it is recommended to host Content Library and Package source on a remote location. Please add the support for using Azure Files (https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/services/storage/files/).

  12. Add custom Tables in Datawarehouse sync process

  13. Database design

    There are lots of duplicate views (vcollection, Vcollections) that stores almost the same information. To review and remove those duplicates would ease the use of the database.

    Use unique identifiers - in rare cases the resourceid is called itemkey. Or the product code shows up sometimes as Software Code. A unified naming convention would be very appreciated.

    Devide information for CI deployments/compliancy, those for applications, Security Upates, Deployment Types and whatnots. Having all stored to one table/view CI_ConfigurationItems is very confusing and very difficult to retrieve.

    Outdated versions/revisions (apps, CIs) not in use should be removed also onā€¦

    the Features under Updates & Servicing should have a detailed information pane, the description is too big and it should be good if a link to the documentation is also added to the list. also, option to turn off a feature if it was once enabled

  15. subnets

    When syncing the IP address range during Discovery, could you also check that the Description in Sites and Services has or has not changed? At least the description isn't in sync for me.

  16. Update (CUs) behavoiur on Reports (Report Re-Creation)

    All MS reports are recreated/overwritten during an update, no matter whether something has changed or not. The update logic checks whether the report has been modified, if so, an ā€˜OLDā€™ version will be created to prevent that individual changes on the default reports will get overwritten. A manual clean-up is necessary afterwards, but mostly nothing has changed anyway within the updated report --> only reports that have changed should be recreated/updated to ease checks on whether modifications are needed.

  18. Ability to add a Management Point Role to a DP hanging off of a Secondary Site

    With the addition of allowing clients to prefer using a management point specified in a boundary group in R2 SP1 (or SP2), it would be a value add to be able to add the management point role to a site server that is a distribution point hanging off of a secondary site.

  19. Migration: View only objects that have not been migrated

    When running the migration wizard to migrate SCCM 2012 to SCCM CB (1710) I would like there to be an option in the 'select objects to migrate screen' to 'show only non-migrated objects' so you can easily find objects which have not been migrated yet.

    This is useful to find objects that may have failed a previous migration and you want to re-run them.

  20. In-console update - add reporting step for updating boot images

    When you run the in-console updates the boot images are updated but the step is not reported which happens after "Start WMI". Problem is you get a delay of 10-15 minutes before the next step. If you are monitoring the cmupdate.log file you can see the activity but no where else.
