SCCM - Change the drive used for offline servicing of OSD images

Change the drive used for offline servicing of OSD images

Offline Servicing OSD images wihin SCCM is a useful feature.  I have heard SCCM Professional say it is good and bad but this post is is specifically around changing the default location used to stage the Windows image.

By default SCCM will use the drive in which the Configuration Manager is installed (i.e. Drive E) even if it is running low on diskspace.  But assuming you have a new drive F: with plenty of space the procedure below will details how to change this.

Assuming your site code is P01
Launch wbemtest.exe and connect to:  root\sms\site_P01

Click Query and enter: SELECT * FROM SMS_SCI_Component WHERE SiteCode=’P01’ AND ItemName LIKE ‘SMS_OFFLINE_SERVICING_MANAGER%’

Double click the  query result
Double click Props (Scroll down second from bottom)
Click View Embedded
There will be four entries listed. Through a process of trial and error double click each one looking for PropertyName field "StagingDrive"

Change the Value1 in the list to F: (see above new drive with plenty of space)

Save Object
Click Close
Click Save Property
Click Save Object
Click close.
