bobmn for sangeev/OSD
One use case for this is that we would rather have all OSD task sequences assigned to our Support staff. If they are not physically at the machine they can just remote in and run a rebuild rather than having to muck around with collections and groups.
As much as I would love this, it is a far wider problem with the Servicing Stack. This should be resolved at the OS level, not the Config Mgmt level.
They need to address the entire issue of SSU updates in general, why do we need them, why are they different from other updates, why aren't they identified as SSU in some way etc.
Fix the updates themselves and we wont need to modify SCCM
Thanks for the feedback – we have this recorded in our database to expose these options as a task sequence step or property or something different. Nothing is scheduled/planned yet.
Setting status back to Noted.
This was split from a larger umbrella item.
Check out the new uninstall behavior in 1804 tp.
While this can already be accomplished through creative collections, I think an integrated and supported way to do this would be much better.
If you need to do this now you can create a collection that includes all devices with the software installed but exclude devices that are in the 'Install' collection, then just do an 'uninstall' deployment to that second collection.
It works but is a bit of a pain to configure for every application.
Would be preferable to simply have a tick box on the deployment to say 'Uninstall when item is out of scope' or something similar.
I also disagree with 'Anonymous', all configuration management software is 'dangerous' if you don't know what you are doing.
