  1. Capture SMSProvider data for console sessions

    Recommend capturing which SMS Provider is used to connect console sessions. Some environments have more than one provider and it is also useful for customers with Site Server High Availability implemented.

    Currently SMSProv runs spCMUpsertConsoleUsageData, which populates ConsoleUsageData, and is ultimately consumable for reporting in v_CMConsoleUsageData.

  3. Have an option to decline or stop/prevent a Windows Update from deploying from the SCCM Console.

    I wanted to block an update from deploying the other day and didn't see a button/option to say DECLINE / DONT DEPLOY within the Configuration Manager Console. I saw the update had been downloaded already, but had not been deployed. So I wanted to make sure it would not get deployed at all. I had to go into the WSUS server and decline the Update these and then re-synch the sccm database.
    Quick DECLINE or STOP / BLOCK button would be nice. Or an UNINSTALL/REMOVE button.

    Thanks for the feedback. We include CMTrace.exe in the boot images so logs can be read in WinPE, that tool is part of the SCCM Toolkit and can also be found on the site server under \OSD\Bin\\CMTrace.exe

    For OS Deployment logs there’s a section here which helps – https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh427342.aspx – the main OS Deployment log is SMSTS.log

    We have an open item for improving logging, copy logs etc – I’ll add your feedback to that item.

  5. Updates delivered via "Windows 10 Servicing" or through "Surface Drivers and Firmware Updates" features never report "installed" numbers

    Software Updates delivered via "Windows 10 Servicing" or through "Surface Drivers and Firmware Updates" features never report "installed" numbers. They report how many systems require the updates, or how many are unknown or not required. This makes it hard to tell how many systems have updated, especially when we're testing new drivers or new operating system versions. There are other ways of determining what OS versions are out there, but none that really help us determine which OSes upgraded to 1709 by a Windows 10 Servicing software update Vs. a Windows 10 1709 OS Upgrade task sequence (at least these…

  6. "Maintenance Windows" for Client Auto Upgrade feature

    We often found that SCCM Client is not working because SCCM client was corrupt during client.msi installation was failed due to external OS shutdown. OS shutdown during upgrade may cause corrupt SCCM client but we cannot set "Maintenance Windows" for Client Auto Upgrade in current SCCM version and so it is difficult to avoid this situation. We want to add "Maintenance Windows" for Client Auto Upgrade.

  7. Deploy multiple selected Software Update Groups at once.

    When multiple Software Update Groups are selected we cannot deploy them at once to a new collection.

  9. "select all"

    With 1606 we can multi-select updates thankfully however on newly imaged machines there may be 80 or more updates to select.
    It would be really nice to have the ability to Select All security updates with one click.

  10. Create the abilty to WOL individual or multiple selections and selected device collections.

    WOL should be a basic function in SCCM. You should have the ability to select a single device as well as multiple devices or collections to Wake a system to perform some task like software installation, image deployment, or even establishing a remote session. We are currently evaluating SCCM 1806 and find it discouraging that WOL abilities are not there. Thank you for your consideration.

  11. Pass Return Code Across Dependent Applications

    When installing an Application with dependencies, the ability to capture the dependent Apps return code and then perform a set of actions (run a custom script, additional child dependency, etc.) or have a series of extra settings that can be configured (wait until reboot/logon/additional action complete), would be very helpful.

    For example: AppA has a dependency that will require a reboot but it must be initiated by the user. The ability for the primary App to get that return code and then "Hold until reboot" would be very helpful.

  12. Add ALL reg key types as options in Task Sequence conditions

    In the conditions for Task Sequence steps, the only reg key type you can use the 'exists' or 'not exists' options for is REG_SZ. I would like to see the others REG_MULTI_SZ, REG_EXPAND_SZ, REG_DWORD, REG_QWORD, REG_BINARY. Similarly, when you choose 'equals' or any of the other operators, the only options are REG_SZ, REG_EXPAND_SZ, and REG_DWORD. The other options should be available there as well.

  13. CMCH should be included

    I really can’t understand why CMCH isn’t bundled with SCCM... does microsoft give us some other proper solutions to remediate client health? https://secureinfra.blog/2019/01/17/system-center-configuration-manager-client-health-toolset-to-identify-and-remediate-client-issues/

  16. Desired Configuration - Remediation Client Log

    Currently, there is no client logging when a Configuration Item is remediated. This is all that there is:

    1) An entry in CIAgent.log:
    "Invocation succeeded for policy platform job <GUID>"

    2) 2 entries in %PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Policy Platform\PolicyPlatformClient.log:
    "Starting job [<GUID>] with the following parameters"
    "Mode = Remediate, JobPriority = Foreground, PrincipalId = [SYSTEM], ScopeFilters = # filter[s]"

    The other other place that there's evidence of remediation are in the Baseline reports on the client and the SSRS reports on the server.

    None of these locations show any detail about when _individual_ configuration items were remediated. I recently had to troubleshoot…

  17. Management Point Health Alert

    When adding an MP, the box "Generate alert when MP is not health" is never checked by default. Should be checked by default, and why is this even an option? I don't see a scenario where an Admin wouldn't want to know the MP isn't health.
