  1. Serverside logging from Client

    I want to beable to replicate all logfiles from ccm client to server into a folder structure build like Site / computer name
    This will make it easy to read logfiles from failed installation easier. even when client is offline
    This should be done automatic when the logfiles is updated.

    • software update allow download via windows update only after x number of hours

      today if you select the option to allow the client to download the content from a DP, it can go to Microsoft. This is great, but I would like to have an option to allow this to happen only after x number of hours or maybe x number of retries, allowing the DP to get the content (in case of a admin forgot to add this to the DP, maybe slow link and need to copy content manually)

      • Custom Restart Timeout For Each Deployment

        When deploying an application (or a package), a menu for restart option will be a good option. In client settings, there is a specific restart time, but when we need immediate restart after the application deployment, it is required more than one step.

        • Fix German translation for ‘compliance’

          When using the German version of the SCCM Console, Reports, Software Center or Control Panel Applet the word ‘compliance’ is translated with ‘Kompatibel’ which is the German word for ‘compatible’

          This doesn´t really make sense and should be translated with a better German Word like ‘Konformität’

          • Manage Windows 10 Inbox App updates and language via Configuration Manager

            Updating Inbox Apps or switching the language of Inbox Apps to installed Language Packs requires machines to have access to Microsoft Store. Clients in areas that do not allow any internet connection (e.g. regulatory limitation) cannot update or switch the language.
            Since Microsoft is using DOD running completely in Windows 10 as a showcase, I am always wondering if all DOD machines have Microsoft Store access.
            If Configuration Manager would host and update the sources for the Inbox Apps incl. language files, we could also participate from the content delivery optimizations.

            • Add view to Software Center to track deployments

              Add a tab that displays the history of all changes (TS, Packages, Applications, Updates, Compliance Remediation, ...) done by ConfigMgr Client. This should be possible to order by date or Name. It should also keep track of changes by packages that were deployed and run in the past, but are not deployed anymore.
              In best case provide this as an WMI class, which can be added to HINV optionally.

              • Add Fast Ring option to Console Options

                Instead of using the EnableUpdateRing.ps1 powershell script, why not add that feature into the console like it has been done with Windows 10 in the Settings applet.

                  • A task sequence step that dumps SMS logs to a network share on TS failure

                    Add a step or option to a task sequence that will dump any SMS logs to a predefined location, either a network share or USB drive.

                    It is a total PITA to watch every machine as a TS runs so we cant always copy the logs off before the machine automatically reboots.

                    • Allow upload of powershell scripts (not just the script block) as detection methods or Configuration Item scripts

                      If we have AllSigned selected as a powershell execution policy either as a global gpo or via the client, any script blocks that are written for detection methods on applications or discovery/remediation for config items will fail since they "aren't signed". Organizations where execution policies are scoped as such aren't able to use these features when the configmgr client downloads the scripts to the staging area and scrambles the script name.

                      • Quick & Easy way to find all collections with server group setting enabled

                        In my environment somehow one of our collections had the checkbox for "All devices are part of the same server group" checked (this may be a bug altogether). It was on a workstation collection which prevented those machines from getting updates due to a "Wait on Lock" status. I had to manually click through the collections to find which collection had this setting enabled to clear the lock. It would be helpful to have a quick way to query all collections that have this setting enabled, just in case the admin doesn't know which collection had it enabled.

                        • Ask change the requirements of Endpoit Protection Point

                          Ask change the requirements of Endpoit Protection Point. When we are installing Endpoit Protection Point the Windows Defener service should be started on the server. Because we are using a third-party anti-virus software, even if Windows Defener does not operate as an anti-virus software, we do not want to be configured to coexist multiple anti-virus.

                            • Verify Component Status

                              I often repeat the following actions:

                              - Verify Component Status (Monitoring - System Status - Component Status)
                              - Open any Component with Status Warning or Error.
                              - Verify the Warning or Error is Solved
                              - Reset All Counts for this Component.

                              A Typical example: Restart the Site Server.
                              All Management Points complain that the Site Server is unavailable.
                              But in they also report the System is Online again.

                              MP File Dispatch Manager running on the management point "mp.company.com" cannot connect to site server "SiteServer.company.com". The operating system reported error 53: The network path was not found.

                                    • driver import bug

                                      When importing

                                      without a slash at the end

                                      It imports

                                      • Don't display SCEP Malware Alerts in every User Session

                                        If you're using the SCEP Client on a RDS Server and Malware has been found, every User on this Server gets a Notification from SCEP.

                                        This really confuses many users and increases Service-Desk Calls, if you have Servers with for example more then 20 User Sessions.

                                        Because of this, we currently have no other choice then to hide the User Interface.

                                        It would be great if the Notification are only shown in the Session of the User, which triggered the Alert.

                                        • SCEP Marketing and Comparisons to Competition

                                          SCEP Marketing and Comparisons to Competition. For years I've been trying to get my account team to help us sell our security teams on the idea of switching to SCEP. To do that, we need material to help us market SCEP as a viable solution. We need to be able to compare features from our current vendor to SCEP. We need an objective look at what we gain versus what we give up if we move from our current solution. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem any of this exists.
