  1. Switch to let SCCM install applications in OSD via admin account instead of trusted user

    SCCM is great for deploying OS's, and MDT is great for customizing those images. I'm asking for a switch that allows SCCM to act like MDT when it comes to installing and customizing a reference image.

  2. Duplicate Windows Update for Business policies

    It would be useful to be able to copy or duplicate WUfB policies within the ConfigMgr console. Generally, most organisations would have more than one policy and often they would be the same but with a different deferral value. A straight duplicate would save having to go through the options again and risk making a mistake.

  3. content distribution settings groups

    Like many things in SCCM you can create groups/collections to manage settings for several objects at once.

    It would be useful to be able to create 'content distribution settings groups' that would allow you to specify the distribution settings for a group of applications.

    For example, being able to group together applications/packages that run in a task sequence and using the group to set distribution settings to 'High' to ensure content is distributed quicker.

    Or being able to group Update Deployment Packages together.

    By default everything could be added to a 'default' group with 'Medium' settings.

  4. Microsoft Systems Management Server and Clustered Server Environments

    The SMS initial design did not include support for any form of clustered server; therefore services such as the SMS_Executive service were not written to handle the failure of a clustered system. For this reason, Microsoft does not support any version of SMS in a cluster server environment.

    In SMS versions 1.x, clustered drives caused problems to several services on a site server, many of which were sub-threads of the SMS_Executive service. For this reason, SMS version 1.x was not supported on clustered servers. SMS version 1.x was designed to be able to recover on its own from certain failures.ā€¦

  5. Show Ethernet connection speed before start OSD task sequence

    Sometimes the users just don't know their computer is actually connected LAN at 100 Mbps instead of 1Gbps due to network port issue or network cable issue. It will take almost 5 times longer time to complete the OSD task sequence. It just messes up the things. I hope the network connection speed info is visible in WinPE or give user a warning before kicking off the OSD task sequence.

  6. Set Security Scopes for MAM Policy

    Application Management Policies can't be scoped by Security Scopes in RBA. There's multiple team that manage MAM policies and we don't want to show all MAM policies to both teams. Having the ability to set security scopes will restrict the chance of major consequences and security issue.
    Thanks

  7. Software Center Updates Node - (re)enable sorting

    In older versions of SCCM, you could sort on "Status", "Publisher" and "Name" in the Updates node of Software Center.

    This was very helpful when installing updates - being able to sort on status in particular ("pending verification", "restart pending", "installing", etc.)

    Please bring this functionality back.

  8. WinPE vlan tagging support

    winpe vlan tagging support

    During the build of physical servers with OSD, WinPE is (obviously) required. WinPE does not currently support VLAN tagging. This requires special switch configuration to assign default/native VLAN. This is not manageable. And with DVR growing, native/default will be going entirely away.

    We need the option to do VLAN tagging / Layer 3 from WinPE.

  9. Task Sequence (Windows 10 1903) fails to install application with error "NotifyProgress received: 16 (Application failed to evaluate )"

    Existing task sequence which was previously used to deploy Windows 10 version 1809,1803 & 1709, is not failing with version 1903.

    Task Sequence fails while trying to install applications, none of the application gets installed. We are getting error "NotifyProgress received: 16 (Application failed to evaluate )".

    If I change the install.wim from 1903 to 1809 or any previous version, it works absolutely fine.

    Seems like bug with version 1903 only.

  10. Run Scripts: Prevent Script feature from sending all (i.e. optional) parameters

    What I've noticed when using the new "Scripts" feature is that SCCM runs scripts with a very specific command format/syntax when calling a PowerShell script. Part of that is explicitly specifying every individual script parameter, regardless of whether it is mandatory.

    I suppose that normally, this shouldn't be a problem, but besides being unnecessary and against the spirit of optional parameters, I've also been running into what I assume is a bug, where SCCM fails to properly pass all parameters. There seems to be a parameter limit, or more likely, a character limit to the command line SCCM runs onā€¦

  11. Make the Mac SCCM client boundary aware

    Currently the SCCM client on the Mac randomly selects a Management Point. I would like to see the capability where the SCCM client on the Mac selects the Management Point for the Boundary that the Mac is located in.

  13. 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.

  14. Allow additional settings on phased deployments.

    I would really like to be able to change the settings for a phased deployment. I mostly manage servers and I would love to use phased deployments to push to servers say when I have to push out a new agent. The problem is there isnā€™t the ability to say ignore maintenance window nor can I set the deployment to not be visible in software center.

  16. In app approval for new deployments, let us have templates based on roles in the Org.

    In app approval for new deployments, let us have templates based on roles in the Org. like CIO, CEO, CTO etc or AD/Office 365 groups where multiple people can approve where this can be can be reported in Teams etc. This way it will be easier to deploy apps an attach approval.

  17. Devices as Active Directory View / Integrate AD Users & Computers

    Given the account had proper permissions, maybe integrate Active Directory Users & Computers into the Devices view? Allow for dragging machines/users around in OUs/Containers from within the console.

  18. Update and remove old software references in the canned reports

    The canned reports for Asset Intelligence are great, but they are out of date.
    I don't see any updates or references to Windows 10, and I see Windows XP still listed, as well as many out of date, unsupported softwares.

    For an upcoming upgrade, a refresh of all those canned reports would be fantastic.

  19. honnor / discard work hours for client upgrade

    Please provide an option to honor or disregard the (maintenance windows) working hours set locally. In some scenarios client does not update to the latest CU level when client only operates in the work hours and is shut down.

  20. Leave Filtering on Collections when you leave the collection.

    When you filter a collection (example: Device Online Status), then move off of that collection to look at something else in the console, when you go back to that collection the filter is removed. I would like the filter to stay on the collection until I decide to remove it. That way I don't have to wait for a collection to load just to filter it again.
