      By "turn off this feature" do you mean not have them visible in the console? Or are you referring to something more in-depth.

        I merged several of similar ADR requests. If you find anymore that I missed, please let me know.

          Can you provide an example of what you're seeing versus what the expected behavior is for name collisions?

          As far as the -ErrorVariable behavior, that may be by design due to how PowerShell works but I'd like more details about what you're seeing so I can confirm.

            Understood. The problem is that the Hyper-V default switch is adding another IP address that's creating an overlapping boundary. I'll move this out of By Design to Noted to keep it on the radar so we can look into possible ways to improve this in the future.

              Updating title to reflect the request here

              Save-CMSoftwareUpdate is the cmdlet that is meant to accomplish this scenario. You can use -Location to specify the download location.

              Can you elaborate on the workflow in the administrator console that you cannot complete with Save-CMSoftwareUpdate?

                You could pretty easily do this with PowerShell.

                Something like

                Get-CMCollectionMember -CollectionName "All Systems" | ConvertTo-Csv | Out-File -FilePath C:\MySystems.csv

                  Could you provide a few more details about the specific scenario in the console that you're trying to accomplish? It's not immediately clear to me.

                  Thanks!

                    Yes, this should be available there. :)

                      Thanks for your feedback. Does the UI allow you to do this?

                        Have you considered automating this in PowerShell?

                        Get-CMSiteComponent | Select ComponentName, SiteCode | ForEach { Clear-CMComponentStatusMessageCount -ComponentName $_.ComponentName -SiteCode $_.SiteCode -Severity All }

                        (Note: it will take a couple of minutes for the console to reflect the cleared counts)

                          I see this was filed under "Reporting" but reporting uses SQL, not WQL. Can you provide more information on the scenario you're trying to accomplish?

                                  Can you expand more on the scenario you're asking for? Is there an equivalent flow in the administrator console?

                                    Can you expand more on what functionality you're looking for? What do you consider a "top console user"?

                                      I wanted to note that if your goal is true network isolation, you can use the AllowedMPs registry key to largely work around the problems with this configuration without needing a secondary site.

                                      See https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/jchalfant/management-point-affinity-added-in-configmgr-2012-r2-cu3/

                                      This is more of a blunt instrument than the MP affinity added in 2012 SP2 but it's also highly effective for restricted networks to ensure that the clients only use a specific list of MPs.

                                          We do document this, and this has been the case since at least SMS 2003.

                                          See:
                                          https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/279868/reserved-site-code-names-in-sms-2003-and-configuration-manager
                                          https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/core/servers/deploy/install/prepare-to-install-sites

                                          I’ve also confirmed that Setup disallows you from using the several “reserved” site code names and has done so since at least 2012 SP2.

                                          Was unattended setup used? That’s the only way I can think of that may have bypassed this validation.

                                          @Kazzan that's very odd. I just tried running setup for 1710 and it wouldn't allow me to enter any of the reserved sitecode names (including SMS). "Site code" has a (!), and clicking Next pops up a dialog that says "Enter a unique site code by using a combination of three letters and numbers."

                                            Are you referring to the ability to invoke client notifications via automation? If so we already support this today with Invoke-CMClientNotification and Invoke-CMClientAction (1710+).

                                            If this is not what you're referring to, could you provide a sample scenario or two?
