    @pilgi3: Right, for Windows 10 2004 and beyond though I believe they plan on back-porting to to all supported versions of Windows 10. Though that doesn't do squat for servers. Which I'd argue are the more serious/concerning use case here.

    I'm going to start documenting each time this happens here. Because ... why not. On this date some poor soul lost ~4 best hours of their life because the SUP wizard doesn't make it clear to the user that their SUP is useless unless they add it to a Boundary Group.

    It occurred to me just now that while SUPs are the one I've seen most frequently (probably because nuke-n-pave is a popular option) this should probably apply to all boundary aware site roles. If clients will only use a newly created role based on boundary information then make that part of the configuration process so that admins do not neglect it.

    Yea, this would be a great next step for the Script feature. I ran the wrong script, fat-fingered a parameter, or the script itself is behaving badly I can see wanting to stop it right now.

    I can imagine two levels here as well:
    Actively kill anything still running on the endpoints.
    Passively prevent any additional endpoints from running the script but don't kill in-process executions.

    Oh, add-on idea: If the 'ignore limits' option is selected then delete that content first. This could help prevent large apps from wiping out other content's cache.

    Here's a similar UVI but with a different solution: allow apps to (optionally?) violate the cache limit if required to download them: https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/42089995-prevent-cache-limit-from-causing-application-deplo

    As an alternative, download the app but don't cache it or count it towards the cache limit and once installed, get rid of it.

    I might dedicate 10 or even 20 GB to ConfigMgr's cache and in 99% of situations that perfectly fine. It's the outliers though, the CAD applications, that we need some kind of exception for instead of be ruled by their needs.

    I wouldn't hold your breath: that's not likely to happen. Microsoft Office 2019 _is_ the Office 365 Client (ie. Click-to-Run). The 'Office 2019' category is there for some of the periphery on-prem server bits ... at least that's my guess.

    I look at this less as integrate 'winget the application' but rather integrate/consume the metadata that backs winget which is a trusted, Microsoft-backed application metadata repository.

    If Microsoft is finally going to put in the effort to building and maintaining such a thing then let MEMCM consume it to create new applications and update existing ones.

    And now with Intune we have the ability to specify which Win 10 release clients will stick to. Please integrate that as well and I think a lot of orgs could consider migrating to WUfB.

    Worth noting here is that the randomization period should not equal the MW period itself ... it's not just a checkbox. Randomly starting the install process 30 seconds before the end of the MW would b bad. We need some way of specifying that for the first X period of the MW the randomize spread will occur. Would probably be wise to put in some validation/warning if the user leaves less than say 2 hours for actual patching to happen.

    What if there's multiple windows? Debatable but I think the ideal would be to use whatever the latest randomization end is and use that. On that basis that more spread is better and that there should always be a buffer at the end for actual patching.

    I'd like to suggest the more generic case. Adam is proposing something specific here for Windows Setup. Fine and dandy but what if the bar was simply lowered for inventorying _any_ registry key/value? Eliminate the need for Reg2Mof or manual MOF changes in general.

    In the same way we can import a local or remote WMI class allow us to import a registry key/value.

    Let's take a step back here: why should we have to do this at all during an upgrade? If the docs say this needs to be done the why should we do it manually? Integrate this into the upgrade process and be done with it.

    FWIW, the product team has talked about it and it's beyond unlikely to happen. Enabling a feature does things in the console, database, ect that there is no undo button for. Which isn't to say it's not possible but very unlikely something engineering effort is going to be dedicated to.
