      There are several 3rd party workarounds for notifying user of progress during an in-place OS upgrade but a supported native solution would be best.

        This request is valid and would simplify things outside of compliance settings. A compliance setting, while useful and powerful, is a separate component of ConfigMgr and won't be achieved in a timely manner. It also makes things harder to keep track of.

        If I need to run a post-installation step like setting a license server or deleting some shortcuts, I need that done right away. Adding logic to application dependencies to include post-installation as well as pre-installation would be a tremendous feature enhancement. This gets my vote.

            If I had any more votes I'd gladly use them on this. We're constantly getting burned by this. I'm willing to be the majority of SCCM installs are limited to a single time zone. Let us default everything to client local time, please!

              I'm trying to troubleshoot a warning status on a remote DP and also can't find a way to increase the size of smsdpmon.log. This is troublesome because the log gets overwritten before the content validation process can finish.

                For those of you following this, here's a great blog series to assist with 802.1x deployments covering various scenarios.
                http://www.asquaredozen.com/2018/07/29/configuring-802-1x-authentication-for-windows-deployment/

                Cristopher commented  · 

                Fingers crossed that 2017 will bring some support to WinPE and SCCM task sequences so that we can do some OSD on a network that uses 802.1x security.

                Cristopher commented  · 

                We're headed backwards here. The latest WinPE 10 (version 1607) broke the dot3svc service. https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/win10itprosetup/thread/93f32a23-7558-4742-91ab-ba0e7801ed0e/#3853df61-8dcf-4560-8b01-27da4fcca235 Those of you who are in an 802.1x environment, help me make some noise on this please.

                Cristopher commented  · 

                We have 802.1x on our network and in order to achieve a successful operating system deployment we have had to implement hacks upon hacks into our process. I've gone through 2 dozen iterations of our boot image trying to get the script "just right" and it is still not 100% functional. Because of this, most of our deployments are still done on an isolated network segment where 802.1x is disabled.

                  You can submit changes to the docs via GitHub. Also, there are lots of bloggers who have multi-part posts on how to set up co-management. Look up scconfigmgr.com and anoopcnair.com guides.

                    You can also compress the IIS logs folder to greatly reduce the size on disk.

                    Cristopher commented  · 

                    We use a scheduled task to clean up IIS logs on a monthly basis. A native function would be nice.

                      IP address is visible in the device properties. Just double-click and filter by "address" to see it. You could also just ping the device's host name.

                        I posted this 2 years ago today. Happy anniversary.

                        I feel like the way I worded the request is a little difficult to understand, thereby earning less votes than this probably deserves. The team that looks over these items likely prioritizes things by number of votes so who knows if the UI behavior will ever get changed. I gave up after waiting the first year and only getting 4 votes.

                        Cristopher commented  · 

                        One year later and only 4 votes? Help me out, people!

                                  More and more applications would greatly benefit from this. Last year I packaged Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and had to set it to run when no user is logged in because it simply killed explorer.exe. It would be nice if I could prevent the user from simply logging back in before the installation completes.

                                  Our previous deployment solution, CA ITCM, had this feature. It was called logon shield. It was clunky, to say the least. If anything went wonky during an application install nobody could log back on to the PC indefinitely. Someone would have to be physically present to power cycle the machine.
                                  As much as I'd love to see this feature integrated into Configmgr, it has to be very well though-out. Have it time out when the deployment times out.

                                      Packages can have a scheduled content update set up in the Configmgr GUI. Applications can have content updated for their deployment types via powershell. We use Task Scheduler to schedule these scripts over night so that they do not interfere w/ running Task Sequences.

                                        The automatic creation of an Application would be nice. We use the app model to deploy/upgrade the Admin Console after upgrades. However something similar to the automatic client upgrade would be extremely helpful too. We frequently string the Admin Console application together with a package for a hotfix inside a task sequence because the hotfix packages are auto-generated when the KB is installed on the site server.

                                          I would almost say take this a step further and request the ability to apply a separate maintenance window to PCs if nobody is logged on.
