  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. Patch order with dependencies

    Create patch groups that can run either parallel or dependent on other patch groups. Ensuring certain servers do no patch at the same time or are being patched in a specified order rather than parallel.

  4. Provide opsinsight as PaaS solution for customer to configure inside their own subscriptions

    Right now, opsinsight exists and store data for various customers and perhaps map account to the storage in cloud. How about providing it as a seprate service in azure stack and let the user configure it inside their own azure subscription and use their onprem SCOM or MMA to send data to this blob residing in their subscription. I tried my best to explain the idea, if it needs more ground and better clarity, let me know.

  5. System Update Assessment and SCCM upto date

    I understand that OMS SUA will display a computer being upto date if managed via SCCM and all approved updates in SCCM are installed. This is great for compliance to approved update. What also is needed is to know what updates that are not approved via SCCM, yet are available to be installed for this server. This is how it used to report when using the old system update advisor management pack that you imported into SCOM

  7. Microsoft driver update for MS Publisher Color Printer

    Please remove "Microsoft driver update for MS Publisher Color Printer" from the list of missing updates for Windows Server 2016 VMs. This was already an issue over a year ago in the old update management solution in OMS and is still not fixed.
    I even opened a case REG:117050315683024 back then because that driver didn't even fit into the logic of the update script. The bug was fixed but the uninstallable update still remains to this day

  8. UI Confirmation For Initial Scan

    Provide feedback for when the 'baseline state' is captured so that we know when we can start monitoring for changes to the system.

    I plan on using this tool to diagnose why installing software on a Linux VM renders it useless upon next boot. Therefore I want to know when the baseline has been established before I start the installation process.
