  1. Please fix CCM_Client and CCM_DiscoveryData Discovery on Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.Messaging.dll

    We use Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.Messaging.dll in Version 5.1706.1034.1000. The Discover() Method from "Microsoft.ConfigurationManagement.Messaging.Messages.ConfigMgrDataDiscoveryRecordMessage" return wrong results on CCM_Client (InstanceDataXml : <CCM_Client><ClientId>GUID:4D440652-FEC7-4709-B84C-1EC844F910FD</ClientId><ClientIdChangeDate>09/20/2017 14:50:30</ClientIdChangeDate><ClientVersion>5.00.8325.0000</ClientVersion><PreviousClientId>Unknown</PreviousClientId></CCM_Client>, We use current Version SCCM1702) and on CCM_DiscoveryData, the OS is Microsoft Windows NT Server 10.0 on a Windows 10 1703 Client (InstanceDataXml : <CCM_DiscoveryData><PlatformID>Microsoft Windows NT Server 10.0</PlatformID></CCM_DiscoveryData>)

  2. Management Point Extension

    ConfigMgr has a great, well known and tested connection with its managed clients. Companies sometimes need to extend this environment to achieve more with less. Having the option to extend the Management Point functionality with the SDK would be a great addition.

    What i have in mind would be:
    1- be able to extend the client settings options (like a hardware inventory, etc. where the IT Admin can add a schedule for a task to happen)
    2- all clients with a DLL installed (manually or via SCCM itself), will execute the task on a schedule basis
    3- SCCM client will…

  3. Allow ISV proxy/client receive Task Sequence policies

    In our products' SCCM extension I've tried to get Task Sequence policies assigned to ISV proxy/client without success. After investigating, I've found out that ConfigMgr marks such policies with "secret" flag and don't allow them to be sent to ISV. Could you please implement a way to receive such policies by an ISV?

    Checked on SCCM 1702 (Site version 5.0.8498.1000)

  4. Preserve ISVData field while copy/pasting Task Sequences in SCCM Console

    One SCCM extension uses SMS_TaskSequencePackage.ISVData to hold information about additional object properties. If an admin makes a copy of task sequence in Admin Console, the value of the SMS_TaskSequencePackage.ISVData gets ("Right-click Menu -> Copy"). The ISVData field value is empty in the copy.

  6. Provide information on syntax errors for WQL queries

    If you attempt to write a WQL query that has a syntax error, then try to save it, you get a very vague "syntax error" message from SCCM.

    Please provide at least some information on WHY the syntax was flagged.

  7. WMI class for_CollectionRule

    Currently it is not possible to efficiently query for properties of a collection membership rule. In the SDK the membership rules are a lazy property of the collection and must be retrieved one at a time before they can be tested. This iteration is impossibly slow and inefficient. If there was a SMS_CollectionRule WMI class then one could use a join query to search for Collections based on rule properties. In a real world situation, this would enable tools to quickly select a collection and find which collections it is a member of. This is really needed where collections are…

  9. Ability to disable alerts on 3rd party products like TrueSight Operations Management

    The ability to disable MOM/SCOM alerting during deployments is nice but having the ability to disable alerting on 3rd party products (like TrueSight Operations Management) would be extremely helpful.

  10. Grant Select to smsschm_users on all SQL Synonym

    When CMCB or even CM12 creates an Inventory class, it also creates a SQL Synonym too. These SQL Synonyms, are basically the same as the SQL Views, with one key difference, they don’t have the permission set to allow for smsschm_users “select” access on them. This means that low rights users will receive an error when uses.

    So what is this important? This is a great question, and the reason is that the behavior when importing sms_def.mof changes between CM07, CM12, and CMCB. The SQL Synonyms is named exactly what is created in older versions of CM. So When creating…

  11. CM Messaging SDK Documentation shouldn't be a .chm help file AND...

    The docs that exist for the CM Messaging (note, the messaging SDK is not a part of the larger CM SDK docs here https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh442686(v=cmsdk.16).aspx) is currently a .chm Help file, which is lovably nostalgic.

    However it doesn't do justice to the power of the SDK. For instance, Discovery and hardware inventory are barely covered in the SDK docs. I'm troubleshooting an issue now with the Messaging SDK in which a fake CM Client appears with Windows 6.2 NT Workstation, even though it is a fully patched Win10 machine. Weird stuff.

    Anyway, it would be great if the docs were…

  12. Add WSUS Catalog #s to a Supported SQL View.

    With the SQL view vSMS_SUPSyncStatus, there is a column SyncCatalogVersion. This column allows you to see what version of the WSUS (pronounced “W” “SUS”) catalog is available at each software update point (SUP). When troubleshooting CMCB environment with two or more SUP it is import to know what catalog is at each SUP server. The vSMS_SUPSyncStatus has many more details available to it as compared to any of the existing SUP SQL views.
    So why is this information important? Knowing Catalog version #, sync date, sync status, etc. helps when troubleshooting SUP issues. This also allows for a dashboards/reports to…

  13. Log to ETW

    It would be handy if SCCM Agent (as well as the SCCM Server components) could send logs to ETW (instead or in addition to the files under C:\Windows\CCM\Logs) folder. That would allow us to redirect the events to a central location and analyze with event analysis tools, (i.e. OMS Log Analytics, Message Analyzer, etc.).

  14. Add support to extend more areas of the console

    It would be nice to be able to extend the details tabs of for example the devices. What i would like to accomplish is a upgrade resistant way of having https://sccm-zone.com/extend-the-sccm-console-to-show-collection-membership-using-console-builder-c6db52b408d8. It could be added by default but it would be more useful if the console was able to merge any xml ontop of the original ones.
