  2. Dynamic Update Deployments

    Update deployments needs to be dynamic. As of now if we target a group of 5 servers the deployment is static and will always target only these 5 servers, even if the group changes and have 100 servers in it. The update deployment should be able to evaluate the group membership at each runtime.

  4. Add advanced scheduling to support patch Tuesday

    We typically apply patches the weekend after Patch Tuesday but it's not always the second weekend of the month so we can't schedule it with the options available.

  6. New Management Pack releases and change tracking

    When the OpInsights team releases new IPs/MPs they're automatically downloaded and executed on agents. While I'm sure you're performing all the tests needed, there can be disruptions on the agent side, just like it happens with OpsMgr. The main difference is that with OpsMgr the admin is in full control, with OpsInsights it is not. You should give the user a way to track MP changes, a few ideas:
    - use the change tracking IP and add MP tracking
    - use a newsfeed / tile on the portal with the latest release for every IP and core management packs. It…

  10. Integrate to Sys Upd IP with WSUS / ConfigMgr

    The current IP is great but, afaik, it just does check for published updates, a true compliance report should be based on authorized updates. I know this isn't going to be easy and probably not possible today without some change on the patching tools, but as a future evolution I think the IP should leverage the customer chosen tool for patching and reporting against authorized updates in addition to published updates.

  12. Change Tracking : Need IIS changes also to be tracked under change tracking like app pool settings or any IIS site related changes

    Tracking IIS changes will help to know what has change while troubleshooting any IIS related issues like App pool account was changed or any site settings were changed.

    Thanks for the idea.

    We’d need to see how complex it is to model this in search since IIS config can be quite deeply nested, to do it as ‘first class’ citizen.

    Also consider the ‘simpler’ version of this by tracking changes to (XML) files such as machine.config, app.config. web.config, applicationhost and so forth… http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519279-change-tracking-files-and-folders
    with that, we were thinking we could have some UI ‘diff’ capabilities for the ‘before’ and ‘after’ file…

  13. The possibility to "pin" a patch set for X number of days

    The possibility to "pin" a patch set for X number of days, giving you the possibility of deploying and verifying the same set of patches across individual envs. In other words: same patchset on DEV servers on Monday, Test servers on Tuesday, etc. and Production on Sunday.

  14. Support for patching Azure VM Scale Sets

    Currently I can only patch my regular windows VMs through Update Management. Would be great to support VM Scale Sets too.

  16. Build Complete Dashboards with Integrated Performance Data, System Updates and SCCM Data

    Improve the System Update intelligence Pack: The dashboard should show you which systems are missing updates, tell you whether you have attempted to deploy the update to the servers and reasons for the install failure. For example, there was no space on the C:\ drive and the install fail. The dashboard should be a fully operational solution for pointing out the problems and offering the exact resolution. While it is helpful to know that updates are missing. It is even more helpful to know which servers were attempted and why the updates didn't install. Talk to someone who has attempted…

  18. Update Management Solution: Installation of updates without providing time zones

    It seems to me that it will be very helpful to add the possibility to configure the installation of updates by local time on the client. ie: We have servers (on premise) that are in many time zones and I want them to be in one group and that all installs updates at the same time. This requires creating multiple groups and setting different time zones. It would be ideal to set the time, eg 3.00 am - without time zone configuration - the zone would be read from the client.

  19. Change Tracking for SCOM Configuration

    Since there is an intelligence pack to bring SCOM Alert data to Insights, it would help if the changes made to SCOM configuration is also tracked. For Instance, It would help corelate management pack updates to alerts raised in the SCOM environment. or corelating alerts to some administrative change

    Let’s see how many votes this gets.

    In general, you might also consider the ‘generic’ approach, i.e. script your own ‘dump’ of configuration settings and MP versions to a file, then the idea about tracking file changes http://feedback.azure.com/forums/267889-azure-operational-insights/suggestions/6519279-change-tracking-files-and-folders might have a broader applicability and therefore be preferred from a product direction standpoint.
    Also, using Log Management to collect the ‘Operations Manager’ event log would tell you some other things happening in the environment from an OpsMgr perspective.

  20. Ability to reinstall

    Installed and configured with a workspace which is now gone, the extension is orphaned with no option to reinstall or redeploy. Error shows:

    The solution cannot be enabled on this VM because the VM already has the management agent but the workspace associated with the agent cannot be found within the subscription: {guid}

    Ability to reinstall or reconfigure to another workspace would help
