ConfigMgr 2203 Known Issues and Fixes

Let’s discuss the ConfigMgr 2203 known issues and fixes available. Microsoft has not shared any known issues with SCCM 2203 version. I have checked the release notes, where they normally highlight the known issues with each version of SCCM.

Most of the known issues documented in release notes are of the SCCM version 2107, and some are there for the 2111 version. So this is a piece of good news. It seems the ConfigMgr 2203 version is very stable!

I have checked the community forums and social media channels to find buzz around bugs or known issues with the 2203 version of Configuration Manager (aka MEMCM). Nothing to highlight from there as well.
