FIX: Create MDT Task Sequence Missing from SCCM Console

The Create MDT Task Sequence Missing from SCCM console. What happened to the Task Sequence node? This is being observed after successfully integrating MDT with Configuration Manager. MDT adds many enhancements to Configuration Manager, and It provides more than 280 enhancements that MDT adds to Configuration Manager.

I had recently noticed this issue in SCCM Configuration Facebook Group reported by community members. If you have finished integrated MDT with Configuration Manager after relaunching sccm console, you will experience it while navigating to the task sequence node inside sccm console, and the Create MDT Task Sequence is not visible for you.

The integration process happens at the console level. Installing MDT makes no changes to the ConfigMgr server. To use the MDT extensions, you need to install and integrate MDT on every system with the ConfigMgr console installed.
