Move Distribution Point Content library between drives SCCM 2012 R2

Move Distribution Point Content library between drives SCCM 2012 R2

Now that we have access to the Configuration Manager 2012 R2 Toolkit http://larslohmann.blogspot.dk/2013/12/configuration-manager-toolkit-for.html, lets try to move Distribution point data from one drive to another.

In order to do this we need ContentLibraryTransfer.exe

ContentLibraryTransfer.exe -SourceDrive <current drive letter> -TargetDrive <new drive letter>

When you install the toolkit the file will typically be in C:Program Files (x86)ConfigMgr 2012 Toolkit R2ServerTools

So start a command prompt as administrator and change the path:

Then lets try to move the content from the C drive to the D drive as shown here:

ContentLibraryTransfer.exe -SourceDrive C -TargetDrive D >c:logsmove.log

You may want to pipe the output to a log file, this will make it easier to examine the result afterwards:

C drive before the transfer:

And C driver after the transfer, notice that the program has created a NO_SMS_ON_DRIVE.SMS file on the source drive:
