    Thanks for the feedback

    We have a couple of open work items to improve task sequence logging and I’ll add this to the list of potential improvements to consider

    YES THIS! I was about to make a new UV request for this reason.
    We have several reboots during our Windows 10 Upgrade TS, and due to reparsing after each reboot and also the extra junk logged on each step due to Certs, the SMSTS.log gets so large and rolls over a couple times during the upgrade making finding issues very hard.

    Peter is right on with his comment, that's exactly why we want it, apply BIOS settings, why maintain things in several places?

    Thanks for your suggestion. Updating status to noted – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/core/understand/find-help#send-a-suggestion for an explanation of each value.

    Can you elaborate with some examples of why this would be needed?

    We already have the task sequence debugger and comprehensive logging. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/osd/deploy-use/debug-task-sequence

    Also, Windows developed SetupDiag which can be run from the task sequence or used on setup.exe completion https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/upgrade/setupdiag

    This came up because during OSD, it can hang after the first reboot at times. You see a Black Screen and spinning wheel... and nothing else ever happens. F8 doesn't work and Shift-F10 is disabled.
    I've seen this happen due to drivers or bad unattend files. I'd like the ability to troubleshoot live.

    TS Debugger is great and I use it all the time, however at this point in the process, it's not running and isn't an option.

    I also use setupdiag in my Upgrade Task Sequences, but that isn't applicable at this point either.

    This has caused a huge barrier to allowing self-service in our organization. This needs to be added sooner than later. Something similar to a CI, where you can check a box to using the user's credentials instead of the system. But default to System.

    Agree, if the application is set to restart after install (User Experience: Determine behavior based on return codes (3010 / 1641) OR CM client will force a mandatory device restart), then it should trigger the reboot dialog ASAP after the install. It should not wait for the deadline to reboot, or in the case where it was an available deployment, it would never automatically reboot.

    I would like to add to this, that I'd like to be able to embed the powershell script, similar to the Task Sequence "Run PowerShell Script Step", you can either point to a file, or embed the script.

    Agree... I see this hundreds to thousands of times per upgrade cycle. The CM Client is left in a very unhealthy state when this happens. Often requires manual intervention. We use custom scheduled tasks and PowerShell scripts to repair the client and make it able to attempt upgrade again.

    I would note, I'd rather not have it retry, but repair the client and report that it was Unexpected Rebooted", and then have it try to upgrade during the next MW or Deadline.

    I think if it were to retry, the user would just continue to reboot the machine, or potentially cause an endless loop if the reboot was due to a BSOD or other action. I'd just like the client repaired and have the failure logged.
