  1. Adopt, Integrate the most used community tools

    There are a lot of great community tools/script/services out there. (Modern Driver/BIOS management, ConfigMgr Webservice ect.)

    We all use them with a purpose and because its need. (Functionality is missing in Configmgr)

    The MVPā€™s do a great job to support those tools but if anything at the backend changes or they stop development they may be broken.

    I know you dont Need to use those tools if you dont have the knowledge to read and adjust them but thats not How it works in the real World.

  2. Improve WOL functionality with default MAC and IP address configuration

    It would be nice if we could specify a default MAC on device import. This way we could set the hard-wired MAC as the default. Or if there is a way to detect hard-wired vs wireless MAC so we can exclude the wireless MAC for WOL.

    The other piece to this is the broadcast address. We would need a way to specify the broadcast address for the wired IP address? Currently when we remove a laptop from a cart or dock it connects to wireless and then the last registered address in SCCM is for the wireless.

    Maybe we couldā€¦

  3. Rename CMPivot

    CMPivot should be renamed/re-branded to something more aligned with customer needs...something like "CM Instant Query" I find a lot of customers skim right over the CMPivot selection because it looks like it could break something or its not useful and alot of them aren't aware of it potential. Its probably one, if not the best, arsenal for a desktop support team to use.

  4. Add "color" (i.e. error level) filtering to cmtrace

    I open cmtrace for one reason: to find the red lines. Just thinking about opening a log file and dragging the scroll bar around triggers my carpal tunnel.

    Please add a button to quickly toggle between showing "all", "only errors (red)", and "only warnings and errors (yellow and red)".

    The logic (however rudimentary it may be) is already there. This is really only a (huge quality of life) GUI/view change.

  5. Dedicated SCCM website: wikis, forums, blogs

    I haven't found any good information on how to prerequisite any Java - not a specific version, always the newest - for an application. It would be nice to have a place to ask such things (and please don't refer me to the TechNet forum; try find any info like that there, or even ask such a question, you're better of -> see below: scattered)

    A dedicated SCCM website with user and microsoft staff wikis, forums, blogs etc. all in one place hosted by Microsoft (or anyone else really it wouldn't matter, but not that scattered all over the place/internetā€¦

  6. CMPIvot support in Central Server, in a Cross Forest environment

    Had a Consultation ticket opened with MS Premier [Ticket #:17659929] asking assistance to enable CMPivot in Central Site Server.

    Had the response that this feature is not supported/tested in a Cross Forest environment.

    Can you please consider this as a feature improvment?

  7. service connection tool - allow restart on downloads

    Enable restart on downloads using Service Connection tools. Some customers are in remote and/or highly controlled sensitive environments which require the use of the Service Connection Tool. These environments can experience interruptions in internet connectivity is interrupted which cause the download to fail or even an unexpected reboot of the computer you are using to download the updates. You have downloaded 10 or 15 GB of data and you have to start all over. This is frustrating and needs to be addressed.

  8. pre-populated SCCM for demo purpose

    It would be nice to have a pre-populated SCCM that can quickly be setup to be able to showcase/demo SCCM when going to clients. I'm thinking something in the line of the already existing Microsoft Customer Immersion Experience (CIE) for Office 365, where for example a PowerShell script is used to drop the necessary sources and DB and performs a restore of an SCCM site.

  11. hashdir.exe for SCCM CB SHA256

    The old version of HASHDIR.exe tool doesn't work with new version of SCCM. This could be because of SHA256 hashing of SCCM CB.
    Is there any possibility to release a new version HASHDIR.exe tool for SHA256 hashed content. This would be really useful whenever SCCM admins want to perform has miss match troubleshooting ...

  12. redirect wake on lan broadcasts

    Our clients boot and shutdown into an Authentication VLAN (for posture checking before connecting to production network). Wake on LAN wants to send broadcasts to the subnets that the clients were last discovered.

    Need the ability to configure on Site Servers to send the broadcasts to a specified subnet regardless of where the client was last discovered.

  13. Incorporate Configuration Manager Servicing Extension's Collection Builder functionality to the main product

    Today Configuration Manager Servicing Extension brings new functionality to the product but it is a separate download. It provides a list of Configuration Manager client versions that may be present in your environment, and makes it easy to create queries to locate these clients. Make this functionality built-in to the main product.

  14. Integrate command prompt/psexec To console

    It would be nice if you could open remote command prompt to client from console. Like psexec \client cmd, system account could be used.

  15. Add a command line option to Support Center to connect to a remote computer

    The Support Center utility is a great addition but doesn't seem to support specifying a remote computer to connect to from the command line. This would allow it to be called automatically from scripts and other tools.

    This is option is implemented for the remote control viewer by running: CmRcViewer.exe <remote-computer>

    Likewise it would be great to be able to call the Support Center thus:
    ConfigMgrSupportCenter.exe <remote-computer>

  16. Switch to set view when opening logs in CMtrace.

    A switch to pass when opening multiple log files in CMtrace via command line. Example: you want to monitor a client install, so you want to open ccmsetup.log and client.msi.log.

    Something like cmtrace <path to file1>,<path to file2> -Vertical
    or cmtrace <path to file1>,<path to file2> -Horizontal

  17. Do not require local admin to run service connection tool to download offline updates

    In an offline environment customers use the serviceconnectiontool to download the update bits. When running the service connection tool the administrator has to have local admin rights, even to just download the content using -connect. We should not require customers to run this as an administrator just to download media.

  19. Make the Operations Manager Management Pack for Config Manager Upgradeable

    Operations Manager Managemen Packs are usually not upgradeable, because the Devs are doing breaking changes in almost every Version of the Management Pack.

    The Update Procedure will be: Removing all MPs & all Overrides, then reimporting all MPs and Overrides again.

    Please make the MP upgradeable!

  20. Support Center Log File Viewer support same log files as CMTrace

    The CMTrace tool is able to parse non-SCCM log files (e.g. 1E's Nomad logs) to properly pick up timestamps, process ID's etc. It would be very helpful if this could be added to the Support Center/Support Center Log File Viewer. It seems
