Application Content Location - Application Migration from SCCM 2012 R2 Sp1 to SCCM Current Branch -

    Question

  • Hi all,

    I have a quick question...

    When migrating applications I notice the content stays on the source SCCM server content location and not moved over to the new destination server.  Is there a tool to move the application content over to a new content location?  Or do i need to change the UNC path to the new location on all 1000+ applications?

    Any assistance appreciated.

    Thanks,

    JAC3d

    Yes. It's called explorer. ConfigMgr does not control or manage your source files -- that's your job.

    There are other ways to copy the files as well like robocopy, copy, xcopy, etc. Once you move them, you will need to update the paths in ConfigMgr though. There also multiple ways to do this including manually, using PowerShell or a tool like the one that Simon linked to.
