  1. 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.

    • 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.

        • CMTrace skip on Max Line Length

          When opening logs with large line blocks if the line is too long cmtrace will halt loading the rest of the logfile. This is often scene with the smsts.log when running a USMT migration. The DirectoryListing response string is several hundred thousand lines long, and the last line displayed in the log is the line above that response.

          It would be nice if CMTrace skip lines when this occurs instead of only displaying up to that point.

          • Ability to use ContentLibraryCleanupTool and ContentLibraryExplorer on Distribution Point in untrusted domain

            At the time you can only use ContentLibraryExplorer and ContentLibraryCleanupTool on DPs on same domain. It would be great that you could supply credentials to use these tools on DPs on untrusted domain.

            • 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

              • Wake on Lan feature that does not require deploying an application.

                I want a simple Wake on Lan tool on the SCCM console which does not require me to initiate it as part of a application or package deployment. I want an option available on the device collection level when, after selecting the device collection, is available upon right mouse clicking the collection. Perhaps this could go in the DEPLOY selection(to save on real estate) or its own option Wake On Lan.

                • Fix ContentLibraryCleanupTool's inability to run in several cases

                  ContentLibraryCleanupTool should be updated to do the following two actions:
                  1. Instead of failing when encountering non-installed pacakges, ContentLibraryCleanupTool should keep an array or list of in-progress and failed packages (anything "Not fully installed"), untarget those packages to the DP and wait until those removal messages have been processed by the DP, continue cleaning up the content library on said DP, then retarget all the packages in the array/list of packages when it is finished.
                  2. Automatically double the wmi quota limit when encountering quota limit errors.

                  Hardening this utility in this way will alleviate the manual tediousness of fixing…

                  • Select specific WMI classes or Logfiles in SCCM Support Center

                    It would be nice to have the ability to select specific WMI classes or Logfies easily within the SCCM Support Center. Right now i have to edit the config XML and sometimes the support center crashes. That would Help if you try to pull files or classes for specific Scenario from Clients and you dont Need all of them.

                    • Change temporary unpack path of Support Center Viewer

                      If i open a "Bundle" in Support Center Viewer all the data gets stored in:
                      C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\ConfigMgrSupportCenter.Common\Temporary

                      It woul be nice to Change that path or to provide a path during the unpack procedure. Right now i have alsmost 8GB of data in that path and it seems to not clean up by itself.

                              I often use a tool to search all log files for a particular entry, and the search results tell me what line the entry is located on within each log file. If CMTrace had line numbers, it would help locate the search results within the log files.

                              • 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.

                                    • Provide a new tool for cleaning up duplicate GUID's

                                      Since Microsoft deprecated CCMDELCERT we no longer have a method of cleaning up duplicate GUID's. Please provide a method for us to do this.

                                        • CMTRACE - load blocks of file instead of whole file into memory to speed up intial loads

                                          When opening file in CMTRACE, load portions of the log file (blocks) into memory instead of whole log so intial load is quicker and consumes less ram.
