  1. Please improve the service feedback in the service manager for the Intune connector

    at the moment if you go to Administration Servers and Site systems roles select the Intune connector and select Properties you get nothing about the configuration. Also if you go to monitoring\component status then show status on the Windows_intune_connector you get no status at all regardless of whether it is working. If you go from there Start service manager and try and query the windows_Intune_Service you get an error message "error communicating with component". This all leads you to believe that the Intune service is broken on the SCCM server when in fact this is completely normal behaviour. This is…

      • PostOOBE

        Copied and pasted from a closed feature request.

        Below is a feature that we at the AFECMO could use to ensure that our branding can be competed in a singe TS step. With out this functionality we have to create a task sequence step to manually run setup.exe with the desired arguments.

        Several command-line options are available to upgrade Windows 10 (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/commercialize/manufacture/desktop/windows-setup-command-line-options).
        By default, the "Upgrade operating system" task use the following command "Setup.exe /auto Upgrade /NoReboot /Quiet /DynamicUpdate Disable /ImageIndex 1 /PostOOBE <location> /PostRollback <location>" and if you want to use other switches, you must delete the…

        • Better updates visibility before selecting category.

          We cannot see what updates we would be able to download by selecting a certain category on the software update point, without actually downloading the updates that fit that category. For example, try finding KB4013214 on WSUS. Impossible. Why is it so easy for Consumer to upgrade to 1703 but enterprise customers get shafted with WSUS not containing the updates you need?

          • Be able to send an SMS text to ConfigMgr hybrid Intune devices

            So at least one competitor has the capability to send txt messages directly to managed devices from the administrator. This is useful to be able to draw users attention to changes in policy coming or asking them to upgrade iOS versions, upcoming maintenance of Intune etc. It would be great if we could send a message directly from the CM2012 console to a single device or an entire collection of devices. it doesn't have to be 2 way communication, just a way of sending admin alerts to end users. SMS texts tend to be more immediate in nature and draw…

              Find a way to combine the tabs for Success, In Progress, Error and Unknown into a single table with the same information that makes getting an overview of Content Status more efficient.

              • Active Directory Sites should be unique on something more than just name

                Currently, if you have forests that have the same Active Directory Site name in them, SCCM only imports the first one it finds as a boundary. This makes using a Site as a boundary very unreliable when assigning site systems.
                For example:
                Forest a.com has a Site 'HQ'
                Forest b.com also has a Site 'HQ'
                SCCM imports a.com/HQ as AD Site, ignoring b.com/HQ
                Client pc1.b.com is in Site HQ in b.com, but due to the boundary mixup, tries to access the DP in a.com, which it doesn't trust.
                If Sites were made to be unique in a "(domain or forest)/Site"…

                • Show different icon for user and device collections in Application Deployment tab

                  Show different icon for user and device collections in Application Deployment tab.
                  At this moment you see in the Application - tab Deployment the same icon for user and device collections. If that could be changed so that you see a collection-icon with a human head on top of it for a user collection and a collection-icon with an computer on top of it (see attachment). Then you can see what kind of collection the deployment is targetted, which helps for troubleshooting.

                  • content repliction

                    Dear sccm Team,

                    we have a lot of middle sized Locations with max. 2 Mbps Connections that hold distribution points and we often have issues replicating. It would be great to leverage something like DFSR (with cross file remote differential compression). Also it would be great if we finally could copy single files between DPs when there were issues during DP update for a package. Wouldn't that be possible with a small command that verifies checksum and updates the CM database Information.

                    Thx
                    Sebastian

                    • Powershell cmdlet that tests a client's Update Deployment health

                      A PowerShell cmdlet that will test the connectivity and communication of the client to the SCCM server. This is requested as there are multiple articles that document the Updates process for SCCM 2007 but none that provide a high level overview for SCCM 2012. Powershell would be ideal as it is able to execute WMI methods then query SCCM logs to verify the success or failure (along with the error message) of the SCCM 2012 Updates process.

                        SCCM Packages - Install another program first does not respect "Only when no user is logged on" while one has setting "Allow software installation outside of maintenance window when assignment time is reached"
                        I deployed one Package that had to uninstall first old version of the program and the install the new version, Only when user is logged off. Only uninstallation worked while user was logged on=fail. There was no deadline for the installation and Maintenace Window was 16.00-06.00.

                              • web application

                                The current implementation of Web Applications is very limited. Quite frankly, I'm not sure why this was implemented so poorly: batch files are more flexible than this!

                                I'd like to see this expanded in several ways: choices of where to put the icon (start menu, public desktop, user's desktop), appearance of the icon.

                                  After patching is complete on the client, the "Updates were installed" date in Windows Update does not change to the current date. a feature that would update this date after a successful patching is complete on the client will be extremely for reporting

                                  • Limiting Collection Notification

                                    When a device is added to a collection but is not a member of the limiting collection(s), there should be a prompt that notifies the user of this and what collection(s) the device needs to be a member of first.

                                    • Align Verbage in Software Metering with verbage on file details

                                      When creating a new software metering rule, the console asks for the file version of the file. However, what is really required is the product version of the file. Unfortunately, these are not always equal as some vendors have different values between the two fields. When this occurs and time passes by and you put the file version, you have no metering data.

                                      • Cannot setup Application Model withouth detection logic

                                        We cannot setup a application without detection logic. We have some script/package which has to be deployed on daily basis irrelevant whether application is installed or not and it doesn't require any detection logic. Can we request Microsoft to update Application model i.e we can setup application without detection logic

                                        • Ability to add a Management Point Role to a DP hanging off of a Secondary Site

                                          With the addition of allowing clients to prefer using a management point specified in a boundary group in R2 SP1 (or SP2), it would be a value add to be able to add the management point role to a site server that is a distribution point hanging off of a secondary site.
