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

    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.

    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. :)

    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?

    I'm not clear on exactly what you're asking for. Can you provide an example 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?

    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?

    You can use Import-CMComputerInformation in PowerShell to accomplish bulk computer import.

    @hkpmanuel This is a great suggestion. I would advise using the Windows Feedback app to submit this suggestion to the Windows team.

    I also wanted to note that Windows Settings is reserved for OS use at this time, and I'm not aware of any plans to change this.

    It’s my opinion that any place we’re doing alphanumeric (1, 10, 100, 2, 3, 31, 4) vs natural (1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 31, 100) number sorting, it’s a bug. :)

    Can you let us know specific areas that you’re seeing this?

    Where are you in the UI when you minimize it and this occurs? (For instance, are you in a Collection view with thousands of machines?) Or, does it happen regardless of which page in the UI is open?

    if you disable your touch screen in Device Manager, and then re-launch the console, does this issue persist?

    Finally, what build of the Configuration Manager console are you using?

    Thanks!

    Can you expand on what data you're interested in exporting/importing? We already support many import/export scenarios in PowerShell today.
