  1. No possibility to upgrade to 1802 on a secondary site with cd.latest

    At a customer with 7 remote Secondary Sites, connected through a very small satellite WAN connection, we would like to schedule or manually start an upgrade to 1802 from the cd.latest instead of the Upgrade through ConfigMgr Console.
    As this method will copy one GB of data our customer would like to have more control on when this data is sent over and when the upgrade should start. A manual or offline upgrade through the cd.latest would be helpful.
    As far as I could find, the only possibility is through the Console.

  2. Hotfix Rollback Option for the Microsoft SCCM CB Hotfixes Releases

    Hello: Microsoft release monthly updates for Microsoft SCCM Current Branch and sometime hotfixes. The hotfix rollback installation for Microsoft SCCM is not straight forward because Microsoft SCCM CB hotfixes installation has own process and procedures which executed in the backend. So it better to have an option provided to rollback the Hotfix.. Ex: KB4339794....

    The ability to create the Secondary Site bootstrap media manually. Will be especially useful for slow link sites to use other mechanisms to copy the file to the Secondary Sites instead of using Configmgr's distribution

  4. Ability to run SCCM Update prerequisite check again if failed

    If you did not run a prerequisites check prior to installing the Configuration Manager and it fails you aren't able to run it again. The run prereq check button is greyed out and if you use Retry installation any warnings during prereq checks are ignored.

    It would be great if the Run prerequisites button would be available in this scenario to run it again without ignoring the warnings.

  5. 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.

  6. 'SCCM Essentials' for small-to-medium businesses

    SCCM is big and complicated. A lot of smaller organizations would benefit from a stripped-down edition that shipped as an appliance VM with a setup/integration wizard.

  7. Make installing sccm as easy as choosing a system role

    Setting up a new sccm site server is much more complicated than it should be. We fork out licensing costs and then have to bring in consultants... An installer similar to the vcenter vsphere setup would be awesome, or better yet choose the role and off we go. We just need to provide a naked 2012 or 2016 server and the installer does the rest using the best practices for configuring sql.

  8. Add wizards for in-console updates

    When doing the upgrade to 1602, there is not a very good visual indicator of progress without manually opening a log or moving to the monitoring tab. Would prefer to see a progress window open once the update or pre-req check has been started. (like you get when going through the normal setup)

  9. Super Long timeout for "INFO: Checking status of SharedAccess..." during setup/upgrade

    Every time we do a ConfigMgr installation or upgrade - even now with in-console updates - there's a ridiculously long wait (105 minutes) when the setup tries to verify that the SharedAccess service has been restarted. Two problems: 1) the timeout is way too long; don't know how this is even calculated but in our much smaller lab environment it's only 7 minutes, and 2) the service is disabled so why are you even trying to start it in the first place????

    This causes our site server upgrades to take much longer than they need to and introduces extended outagesā€¦

  10. Status Message Queries - Allow Criteria for SMS_StatusMessage.Severity

    In the Status Message Queries, when creating a custom query, you cannot select the Severity of the Status Message under the criteria tab.

    You can edit the WQL and add SMS_StatusMessage.Severity not like "1%" to show only Errors and Warnings, however, this does not always work (like when you have a prompted date/time value).

  12. Look for Connection account before trying to connect to site server

    SCCM Site Server should look for a connection account (Site system properties - "Use another account for installing this site system") prior to attempting to connect to a remote site system MP/DP/SUP instead of trying to use the Site Servers machine account first, and when that fails, look for a Connection account. Currently (as of 1702 + KB4019926), network intrusion software is detecting SCCM as trying to brute force login into its remote site system using its machine account.

  13. SCCM Backup fails if DB is remote and Case of DB Name is different between Registry of Primary and in DB

    SCCM Backup fails if DB is remote and Case of DB Name is different between Registry of Primary and in DB ("SQLDatabaseName" in Table "SC_SiteDefinition")

    SCCM Backup fails if DB is remote and Case of DB Name is different between Registry of Primary and in DB ("SQLDatabaseName" in Table "SC_SiteDefinition")


    • In Lab, both the DB and Registry entry were in CAPS as "CM_VNP"

      - But when we further checked the logs from customer we saw that this is different as below:

  14. Integrate an Distribution Sender Interpreter

    Please integrate an Log Interpreter for easier Log Control
    Such as http://www.danrichings.com/?page_id=12 for Sender Log.

    This makes the Life for Package Distribution and Server Control easier in an Enterprise Enviroment.

  15. Add Database Checking to pre-req check

    It would be great if functionality were added to the pre-req check to include an option to do some of the features of the testdbupgrade option of setup. For example, adding an option to check for foreign key constraint issues or other problems that would prevent an upgrade would be a great addition and would prevent issues where the upgrade fails in the middle of the DB upgrade portion of setup.

  16. Servicing Telemetry / Version Upgrade

    Air-gapped / never-connect, never-transfer networks are left with no method to perform any upgrades due to the requirement to submit telemetry data. The offline servicing method is not a valid method to perform these actions due to security regulations. No amount of assurances from the Microsoft team about the content of files will suffice.

    Telemetry data would have to be plain-text, human-readable, and of an appropriate size to allow manual transcribing to permit this methodology to work. Even then, some information which Microsoft may seem as innocent / standard is likely to prevent export on some networks due to variousā€¦

  17. MVP-Current Logged User History and Date/Time

    With the addition of the current logged user on 1806, it would be good to have a history of log on/log off and the date/time sccm identified it. similar with the inventory history.

  19. Implement a sccm managed system to enable HTTPS communication between clients and site system roles

    As the title says:
    Implement a system to enable HTTPS communication between clients and site system roles from the SCCM console, comparable to the Advanced HTTP Site System feature so that we don't have to setup and configure AD Certificate Services to distribute certificates to the clients.
    Or a mechanism that allows the Azure AD Security token, in scenario's with hybrid domain join in place, to be used to authenticate against https enabled internal site systems

  20. Allow changes to DP Description while its in Maintenance mode.

    Allow changes to DP Description while its in Maintenance mode. Once a DP is in MM you cannot change any of the Properties. It would be helpful for people who do not have console access to be able to see that the DP is in MM. Either allowing Admins to modify the name or have CM do it.
