  2. Wrong OS version when capturing Windows 10 LTSB 1607 (with current patch)

    We detected a little bug in the capture process:

    When capturing a Windows 10 LTSB 1607 system and creating an OS image with the captured WIM in the ConfigMgr console, a wrong OS Version is reported. The installed OS shows e.g. 14393.2430 (August) or 14393.2485 (September) as OS version, but the captured WIM in both cases 14393.2214. I assume the capture process calculates a "wrong" OS version, producing at least a misleading result. We recognized this with the OS version mentioned above, but this might be a general problem.

    It would be interesting to know if this is indeed aā€¦

  4. Defer application download until maintenance period

    When deploying software to device collections that have a maintenance period the software downloads then waits for the maintenance period to begin installing. It would be great to have the option to defer the downloading process until either the maintenance period or a set amount of time before the maintenance period. This would allow IT departments to defer large software deployments to a time when network traffic is low.

    Optionally, provide a new option in the maintenance period settings for when application downloads are allowed to happen.

  6. Improve package and task sequence export to include deployment information

    We often export packages from QA to production, but the export does not include the deployments. Also, collections are not included so we have to 1. export collections, 2. Export TS or package, 3. Manually recreate the deployments.

  7. Add a "Enable Branchcache" box for the SUP Role.

    I was having trouble with BranchCache not deploying any updates. My SUP is on a standalone server and after some light digging I discovered that you have to enable that feature separately. It would be nice if the SUP properties section had "Enable BranchCache" option like the Distribution Point Role.

  9. CMTrace Toggle in Software Center

    The ability to toggle split pane cmtrace in Software Centre. I like to see whatā€™s going on when Iā€™m patching, the ability to toggle a CMTrace pane showing tabs for the relevant client logs during patching e.g wuhandler.log, updateshandler.log, statemessage.log

  10. O365 Delta and Seperated Patch for Security/Non Security

    O365 updates should have the capability of having just delta and also non security and security should be separated. This is a big need for the Organisations as Updates frequently get superseded and the size of the patch for O365 is in Gb's while as machines just need some Mb's to update. Moreover if is security then these can be applied monthly and all feature updates six monthly.

  11. Allow for an advanced filter under 'Run only on..' in task sequence

    Allow for a WMI filter or alternative in the advanced tab of a task sequence so we can run only on that hardware type. For example I have an OSD task sequence that I need to advertise to unknown however I actually only want to run on Model XYZ. This should be evaluated at the WinPE stage and then drop out of the TS if no match is found. This could equally be used similar to the existing format with a TS advertised in the software center.

    Noted  ·  sangeev responded

    Thanks for the feedback. We’re looking at moving the functionality of the Check Readiness step to the task sequence properties and this is one of the additions were considering. Please note this is not scheduled work yet.

  12. SCCM software with approval request

    Allow the administrator the ability to change the list of approvers on software that is requires and admin approval. Currently you have to redeploy in order to change who can approve a software deployment

  14. Packages that are larger than the Cache size should have a feature to increase the cache size as part of the package and automatically reduc

    Application Packages that are larger than the Cache size on the computer should have a feature to increase the cache size as part of the package and automatically reduce the size when the package is installed. E.X. Cache size of the computer is 10240MB, Adobe Creative Cloud is 18000MB packaged in SCCM. SCCM should have an option or the ability to tell the computer cache to increase for this application so that it can install when pushed, then once it is installed reduce it back to the 10240MB size.

  15. Dynamic Deadlines on Deployments

    I would love to be able to configure deadlines that are based on how long a device/user has been in the collection. This way, the deployment will be "available" for, say 7 days, and then will become required. This would allow the use of 1 collection and deployment to be used over time.

  16. Open Deployments "In New Tab"

    It would be nice to see the Deployments Node in the Monitoring Workspace have an option to open a deployment without losing my search results. Maybe something similar to "Open in New Tab" you see in a browser. When I am looking at multiple deployments, I don't like having to go back and forth between the search results and the deployment status I am monitoring. I would like to be able to open multiple and then view after I've selected the ones I want to see.

  17. SCCM/WSUS missing updates

    Sometimes systems will pickup updates, where SCCM/WSUS was not able to. Not a good thing when you have to double check your monthly deployments. Get it fixed. See case#118041918036415.

  18. user notifications - task sequences

    Install behaviour and inplace upgrade task sequences user notifications could benefit with some improvements.

    If users don't meet the set criteria, i.e. have the open application or don't meet the upgrade readiness check, the message to the user shows failure and reports as failure. This is not accurate, it should request the user close affected programs and if it doesn't meet the requirements for upgrade i.e. low disk space, not enough memory, it should display a user friendly message explaining the issue to the customer. A new category, failed readiness check should record this.

  19. Disable Delta Content in the Task Sequence

    Disable ā€œAllow clients to download delta content when availableā€ during the OSD, this is not working and breaks software updates.

    If activated Software updates stuck on 0%.

    Maybe is anyway a good idea to turn of all these caching options during OSD (P2P, DO, BranchCache).

  20. edit custom requirements

    Once you create a custom requirement, you can then not edit the custom requirement under the Create Deployment Wizard type. We should have an edit button to edit the custom requirement you created.
