  1. Site Server High Availability or Clustering

    Configuration Manager is becoming more mission critical every day. The ability to Cluster the Site Server role (Inboxes & SMS Provider) is more and more important as that is the single point of failure for a Primary Site.

    If the Site Server role goes down the Primary Site is down no matter how many Management Points or SMS Provider etc. exist.

    If we could Cluster the Site Server or at least have 2 systems share that role for High Availability then this would no longer be an issue.

    Even though we can designate multiple SMS Providers, if the site system…

    • Implement function to remove Windows Updates from clients with Software Update Point

      With a standalone WSUS-Server deployed Windows Updates can be uninstalled/removed from clients. With SCCM SUP this is not possible,
      Implement a function to remove installed Windows Updates from clients.

      • Bootimage download with HTTP instead of TFTP

        Downloading the boot image with TFTP is slow and download may fail within slow or unreliable networks.
        Downloading with HTTP or iSCSI will increase the speed dramatically and the stability is improved also.
        With iPXE this technology is implemented and works fine.
        My idea is to implement the HTTP download with SCCM.
        This would be a great enhancement to performance and stability in the OS deployment.

          Hi. I’m setting the status back to Noted – this was mixed up with the item “Add support for TFTP Window Size” – that has been Started and is available in the 1603 tech preview build.

          Thanks,

        • A Customizable Reboot/Postpone Prompt for Application and Software Updates Deployments

          Basically would like something similar to the Windows Updates Reboot/Postpone nag prompt except with the ability to customize the notification text as applicable to the deployment.

          For example:, as a sub-setting of the deployment type for the application you have the option to enable the reboot/postpone prompt and customize the notification text of the dialog box.

          If the user that receives the prompt, postpones they will be re-prompted at the end of the postponement period until they either reboot or shutdown the system. (basically exactly the same behavior as the Windows Updates reboot/postpone prompt).

          • See if a user is logged in and if computer is active or idle

            Devices should show the current logged in user. Next to that should be an indication of if that session is active or not.

            This would allow us to see where a user is logged in without having to wait on the userprimarydevice field to populate. Being able to see if the session is active or not will help us know if we can remote in without interrupting a user.

              Would be nice if the application approval request feature had built-in support for emailing.

                • Support OSD over Wireless

                  As more and more devices are shipping without wired network adapters, and more business areas are going "wireless only," the traditional ability to reimage a device in place is getting scarce. This is especially true in primary and secondary education institutions.

                  Please provide support for adding Wireless drivers to WinPE, and the ability to provision wireless network profiles for the WinPE phase of the task sequence to enable imaging over wireless network connections.

                  • windows 10 upgrade servicing

                    Support SUP/ESD/WSUS/update-based packages via the "Upgrade Operating System" task sequence step so that task sequence-driven upgrades can benefit from the smaller size of the ESD files (2.5GB) compared to the full media used today (3.5GB).

                    • ConfigMgr Web Console

                      Introduce ConfigMgr Web Console and remove the need to update the console on every device with each SCCM CB Upgrade as local admin rights are needed to update the console.

                      The ConfigMgr Web Console might be similar to Azure Portal with Microsoft Intune.

                      With SCCM CB updates getting released more frequently than before, this will provide benefits and ease of management. The Admins can connect to the ConfigMgr console from any computer in the organisation without the need to install it.

                      • Complete Group Policy Integration

                        Configuration Manager should be able to configure all aspects of a workstation that can be done using other Microsoft tools. Some group policy items already exist such as folder redirection and Firewall Policies. It would be great if Firewall could be expanded to include creation of firewall exceptions. It would also be great if we could configure all group policies from within SCCM perhaps using compliance settings.

                          Instead of having us integrate MDT, why not just include the scripts in a new SCCM install by default?

                            Situations where maintenance mode is useful/needed:
                            1. When the system (hardware) is in transit from the location where it was installed to the site where it is to be used in production.
                            2. When the system is down for other maintenance (software patching and updates, OS configuration changes, hardware reconfiguration and other external factors causing planned or unplanned downtime).
                            The above outlined method for installing new DPs to remote locations is widely used for various reasons (For example to have a dedicated team at one location install machine and to avoid having to copy a large content library across WAN…

                            • Multi Tenant support for Microsoft cloud services integrated with ConfigMgr

                              We hear this request a lot, so I'm adding it here.
                              ConfigMgr integrates with many Microsoft Cloud Services:
                              * WUFB
                              * WSFB
                              * Windows Upgrade Analytics
                              * OMS
                              * etc
                              For each of the above services, sometimes a company may have multiple tenants. Please allow ConfigMgr to manage multiple tenants for each of these services.

                                    • active directory description

                                      Add an column to the devices view that would display Active Directory descriptions in console.

                                      • OSD - Deploy TS to User groups

                                        Would be nice to be able to advertise Task Sequences to specific users or groups. We have some operating system deployments that we would like only certain users to run, support staff for instance.

                                        • Software Center: Add categories to maching targetted deployments.

                                          The new Software Center in 1511 should also categorize Applications using the user category even if it is not deployed to users but systems instead. It should reflect the user category no matter what.
