  1. Include updated Windows Update Agent during client install

    There are well documented issues with issues when using older versions of the Windows Update Agent. The configmgr client install still just checks for the base level of the Windows Update client. The client install should include the most up to date windows update agent so that customers will not be required to deploying the updated agent after client install to resolve known scan and related issues.

      • WinRM SSL for installation of remote site systems + TCP 445.

        Need certificate based communication between site server and site systems for server role installation. Need to remove dependency on RPC Dynamic ports and use WinRM SSL for secure communication and installation of site roles. This would improve security by eliminating a high range of ports that must be open between site systems.

        • Select a collection and trigger clients to run a software update deployment evaluation cycle

          Select a collection and trigger clients to run a software update deployment evaluation cycle. For those scenarios where you need clients to check for updates (now) prior to the default schedule (5 days) that you setup in client settings.

          • Automatic selection of distribution point when only one is available

            When a site only has one distribution point, this point should be chosen automatically when distributing content.
            There is really no need for the manual selection process.

            • Full Office 365 SUP WSUS Integration

              Full Office 365 Integration with upstream WSUS

              Ok, i try to explain my problem.
              Office 365 Updates are not fully integrated to WSUS. When i use an upstream WSUS in my environment with downloading content locally, the o365 conent is only a dummy content, the real content is downloaded from MS.

              So, when my SUP has no internet connection, i have to configure a proxy for downloading it. But this is greyed out or not possible when using an upstream WSUS. I have to configure the SUP to go directly in the internet, and than i have the option, to…

              • Configuration Manager Wi-fi Profile deployment

                Intune wifi profiles deployment states that it is not possible to add proxy settings to anything else that iOS and Mac OS, as per : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/intune/deploy-use/wi-fi-connections-in-microsoft-intune . Same settings , not stated that this is not working for SCCM , even if in the backend it is the same feature. Could you please check and reflect the proper information on the Configuration manager documentation ?

                • Enable creating a working copy of an application to check in and out

                  We need the ability to test edits to an application before putting them into production. Making a copy breaks dependency and supercedence relationships.

                  I would like to ask for the ability to check out an application to make edits. Once the edits are tested, we would be able to check back in the changes.

                  • Change State migration point to user based

                    You could automate the computer change, if State Migration Point would be user based, not computer based (and existing linking created). When user get's new laptop from pre-installation, she will open it from package and connect cables. After that she logs on and runs State Migration Recovery that loads everything back to the new operating system.

                    If using user based model, you don't have to manage MAC-addresses (that aren't in fact known beforehand). Easy to use for end-user:

                    1 - Click one - Start scanning [---100%---] OK, shut down the old machine and log on to new one
                    2 -…

                    • GroupPolicy reporting CI

                      As there may be situations that admin would like to get extensive reporting if GPOs are in place and effective as planned in their organization, would be nice to have some dropdowns or listitems of GPOs that one could select to be as Configuration Items.

                      1000's of GPOs are available but sure MS has some ready list/xml/whatever that could be included in SCCM CI so reporting of GPOs, as they are just reg values, would be possible.

                      • Start a one time AD (System, Group, User) Discovery from a specified location.

                        Delta Discovery doesn't pick up the changes when you move OU's and objects around in AD and kicking off a Full System, User or Group Discovery with all of the Container paths is very inefficient so it would be nice if there was a way to do a one-time discovery from a path you set using the browse button.

                                We often export packages from QA to production, but the export does not include the deployments. Also, collections are not included so we have to 1. export collections, 2. Export TS or package, 3. Manually recreate the deployments.

                                  RBA Viewer has been overlooked for too long and offers a lot of great features over the admin console. Why not combine the features into the console?

                                  • Allow for an advanced filter under 'Run only on..' in task sequence

                                    Allow for a WMI filter or alternative in the advanced tab of a task sequence so we can run only on that hardware type. For example I have an OSD task sequence that I need to advertise to unknown however I actually only want to run on Model XYZ. This should be evaluated at the WinPE stage and then drop out of the TS if no match is found. This could equally be used similar to the existing format with a TS advertised in the software center.

                                      Thanks for the feedback. We’re looking at moving the functionality of the Check Readiness step to the task sequence properties and this is one of the additions were considering. Please note this is not scheduled work yet.

                                    • Interactive logon Acceptence Agreement

                                      I would like to have a user acceptance with custom text every time an admin opens up the SCCM Admin Console.

                                        • Switch to let SCCM install applications in OSD via admin account instead of trusted user

                                          SCCM is great for deploying OS's, and MDT is great for customizing those images. I'm asking for a switch that allows SCCM to act like MDT when it comes to installing and customizing a reference image.
