SCCM 2012 Powershell – Moving bulk packages to folders

By | June 17, 2014

Quick and nifty bit of powershell for SCCM 2012.

In a dev environment, I had several OSD task sequences and associated packages imported. Each one was imported from a different source path to keep them separate, but they were all imported to the root Packages node in the console

Using the powershell cmdlets for SCCM, I used the code below to reassign them to folders based on the source path property of the package. (I manually created the folders but that’s easy to script too 🙂 )

For the example of a build named “Win8import”, with a package folder named the same;

all done.

    Hi Matt,

    I want to run a command that lists list all of the packages in the folder. Say I have the folder
    \\NL1\Package\Test Packages\ and it contains two packages, Test 1 andTest 2

    So the output would list this when I run the command:

    Test 1
    Test 2

    I have Get-CMPackage | Select-object Name | where ______________________

    And I need to figure out how to filter the packages by any folder I want. Any ideas?

      Hey J,

      unfortunately folders aren’t exposed well in the ConfigMgr cmdlets, you need to use WMI. Have a look at Peter van der Woude’s function for this here – https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Get-the-location-of-an-170dea5c

      FYI – You can perform move actions on objects between folders with the cmdlet move-cmobject, which I often use when scripting to create an application or something, then put it in a particular folder, but this won’t help your query.

      Cheers,

      Matt
