  1. Server Groups - Non Clustered Servers

    Can we increase the functionality of the Server Groups feature on collections to allow us to control non-clustred servers

    For example, when patching I have a collection for Hyper-V hosts, but want to ensure that onyl one Host is down at any one time, and not all of them at once!

  2. Instant Membership Updates

    When techs. add a machine to a collection for deployment, it takes a while for the machine to show up. The only way to speed up this process is to update the "All Systems" membership and the applicable membership of where the machine is. Can there be a way to make this process more responsive?

  3. Choose subfolder when creating a new collection from the right-click menu

    When you use the right click menu to add a user or device to a new collection (which opens the wizard to create a new collection), it defaults to the root collection node. We manage our collections with multiple folders and sub-folders, and it would make management easier if we could change the location where the new collection will be created instead of tracking it down after creation and manually moving it to the desired location.

  5. Only on specified client platforms filter on bit version

    For many package programs I have to make two different programs one for 32 bit and another for 64 bit. Currently I have to run down the list and select the 10x 32 bit OSs and the 10x 64 bit options manually. It would be easier if we could do a one click per bit version of the OSs.

  6. Provide Dynamic Application Install Support for task sequences for re-imaging

    Say you are re-imaging a machine which is assigned to multiple collections for applications which have been installed in the past.

    It would be nice to see a feature to find out why collections the computer is part of during the re-image to reinstall those applications.

    Otherwise you have to wait until the re-image has completed then allow the policies to kick in then they install which delays returning the machine to a user.

  7. Ability to show "Install Time" in Available deployments monitoring

    When looking in Monitoring at the status of a deployment, it would be useful to add a heading of "Install Time" to the Asset Details window to show the time when a user actually installed the deployed app or package. Rather than just Deployment Time that is available now and only shows the time/date you deployed the app which you already know.

  9. fnGetNumericIPAddress

    This function allow you to determine the Numeric value of an IP address. Using this function will allow administrator to create reports based on boundaries. Please Grant this execute rights to this function for smsschm_users. This will ultimately lead to better reporting and troubleshooting.

  10. Non Matching Custom Port DP Sharing/Migration Support

    Would like to see the product support moving from a 2012 hierarchy which is using custom ports for client communication and IIS bindings, into a CB hierarchy that is using default ports. My understanding is that both environments need to match exactly from a port perspective and we have over 400 remote DP's that will need to be removed manually from SCCM 2012, reimaged and then redeployed as remote DP in CB all over slow links. We have no internet connectivity options for a cloud DP scenario in these location (like China). This will significantly delay our migration globally to…

  11. Run Scripts: Run multiple scripts concurrently in the same console

    Often times I need to kick off multiple scripts at the same time/in the same time frame. Currently, that means I need multiple console sessions open to accomplish this.

    It would be great if I could start multiple scripts in the same console.

  13. Block DP reassignment if has been enabled as Pull Distribution Point

    While reassigning a Pull Distribution point from one site to another at times breaks, such as package data or status missing from sites. To avoid this scenario, we would recommend to have a validation point like few others which we have in queue(Already queued in vMIGMigratedDPs table or if it has roles more than DP like SUP or MP) There should be an additional validation if it's enabled as Pull DP, then console should not allow anyone to perform DP reassignment by showing error like "The DP you are trying to reassign has enabled with Pull DP, Try…

  14. Retain Searches with Backward and Forward button in Console

    Scenario.


    1. Search for an application

    2. Go to any other node like collections and search for a collection

    3. now if you use backward button it will take you to the applications node and you would need to search for the application again.

    Of course the recent searches will help us in this case. But associating backward and forward buttons with Recent Searches gives good UX.

  16. Upgrading Secondary Site Servers to 1802 failed due to prereqs detection

    At a customer I've updated the Primary Site Server to 1802, this went without problems. The customer has 7 sec.sites. From ConfigMgr Console I started the upgrade which failed. In ConfigMgrSetup.log it stated that the SQLSysClrTypes.msi failed to install (see attachment). This prerequisite was already installed on the server. Also the 'Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Management Object’ was already installed. Which eventually gave the same issue.
    I've worked around the issue by removing the MSI Installer registrations of these 2 prereqs in the registry. The upgrade was now able to end successful.
    Somehow the Upgrade sequence doesn't check if these…

  17. Can a PS commandlet be updated to show the "Scheduled Update Status" column from the GUI

    Can a PS commandlet be updated to show the "Scheduled Update Status" column from the GUI. Currently when applying patches to OS image only the GUI shows the status of the update progress.
    Would be very useful to poll for this via PShell so it could be added to automation scripts.

  19. Software Center: Show more details regarding package information

    Users are regularly informed via a pop-up that new software is available. If you then open the Software Center, you will see countless entries with status Installed or Available. However, it is not recognizable for the user whether a program listed is suitable for him, whether it represents a new version of a software already used by him or should not even be installed.
    It would be better to let the user know which new software is a new version of an already installed one and, moreover, what features this new software provides. Thus, a distinction for the user would…
