Get filename in ConfigMgr 2012 ContentLib

In ConfigMgr 2007 it was kind of convinient to be able to edit files directly on a DP, in ConfigMgr 2012 that isn’t to easy if you are using Content Library.

There are a few ways to find out where the files are actually stored, here is one way:

(Will give you the path to somefile.xml in package ABC01234)

	$siteCode = "ABC",
	$FileName = "somefile.xml",
	$PackageID = "ABC01234",
	$ContentLib = "D:\SCCMContentLib"
Import-Module ($Env:SMS_ADMIN_UI_PATH.Substring(0,$Env:SMS_ADMIN_UI_PATH.Length-5) + '\ConfigurationManager.psd1')
Set-Location "$($siteCode):"

$package = Get-CMPackage -ID $PackageID
$hash = (Get-Content "$($ContentLib)\DataLib\$($package.PackageID).$($package.StoredPkgVersion)\$($FileName).INI" | Where-Object { $_ -like "Hash=*" }).Replace("Hash=", "")
$storePath =  Join-Path "$($ContentLib)\FileLib" "$($hash.Substring(0,4))\$($hash)"

$sourcePath = Join-Path $package.PkgSourcePath $FileName

Write-Host "Source: $($sourcePath)"
Write-Host "Store : $($storePath)"

Will result in something like this:

Source: \\server\share\path\to\package source\somefile.xml
Store : D:\SCCMContentLib\FileLib\A123\A1234567890ABCDEF1234567890ABCDEF

And with this you can edit the XML-file directly on the store instead of editing source, update DPs, wait for processing, wait some more…

… but, I’m not saying that I recommend anyone to edit files directly in the store. 😉
