In this article I will show you how to find a SCCM package by its package id in the SCCM 2012 console. Today I was troubleshooting a task sequence deployment and I needed to find out the package ID of a package.
I thought it would be easy to find the package id, but I was wrong. I started by looking in the software library and I could not locate it anywhere in there. After spending a few minutes in the console I managed to locate what I was looking for, but it was not in the location I expected it to be.
To find a package by its package id” in SCCM 2012 console follow these steps
- Open the System Center Configuration Manager console
- In the left hand side menu click on “Administration”
- Now click on distribution points then right click on a distribution point and select properties
- click on the content tab, then search for the application name (Below I will use chrome as an example) the package id will be shown on the right hand side.
