      If we own it, we should manage it. Regardless of whethor or not it is currently in DNS. If there are 10k computer objects in AD, it should discover 10k computer objects! This trips up admins all the time and makes them THINK they are managing all their devices, but actually they are not... When you use ConfigMgr for security updates and antimalware, this is a pretty big deal.

        Another anti-malware policy item could include 'force offline scan upon detection' with options for different malware severity levels. Respect ConfigMgr reboot countdown client settings with this.

          Another way to approach this would be to provide UI for configuration items that handle AppLocker white-lists and Device Guard white lists, as well as enabling/disabling the features overall.

              Had this come up with as a paint point with 3 customers this week already, and it's only Wednesday. Not displaying the Last Logon Timestamp only makes it harder for people to handle client push.

              Well, that is the first time I've triggered the uservoice profanity filter. :-)

                You have my permission to use any and all extraordinary measures needed to get an intern to ensure this change is ready before the next release. Kidnap interns from other teams. Lock interns in their cubes over night. Force feed interns energy drinks. Feel free to tell security that "Nash said it was ok!".

                Additionally, you could just make it so the error dialog box isn't modal which would mean we could ALT+tab to the step name.

                  I'm really hoping we see this in an early 2017 Tech Preview.

                    Now that we've got Online Status icons in the console, this is one of those "really? are you kidding?" things that every customer runs into.

                      Drivers on future machines (OSD) and existing machines need to be managed for all hardware manufacturers. Whatever you build, it should be with the intent of Microsoft, Dell, HP, Lenovo all using it.

                        Marius - Can you share more details? Are you asking for an easier way to trigger an inventory scan (like we have now with client notifications) or with viewing the data (like through resource explorer and reporting)?

                          The retry option would save SO much time... OSD sure likes to fail right towards the end... don't make us repeat from beginning!

                              I've got a bunch of 1-line powershell scripts that could very easily not have any content if the max length was something longer.

                                    As a workaround, I often include a WMIC command line at the end of the installation to trigger a software update scan, but this misses things that don't show as required until after the reboot.

                                      Michael Murgolo recently blogged his own wrapper for serviceui.exe to make it easier to use, which I think proves the point. Let's get this functionality natively so it doesn't require MDT and wrapper scripts for a typically organization to use.

                                      https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/deploymentguys/2015/07/06/script-to-make-serviceui-exe-easier-to-use-for-osd-custom-user-interfaces/

                                      Maybe the Run Command Line step could have a "Allow interaction" check box?

                                        Had another conversation with a customer last week who thought updates had not been installed because this date didn't get updated.

                                            Saw this during 2 different customer conversations last week - adding the columns equated to light bulbs going off right away for ConfigMgr admins. They need to be there by default.
