How To Find A Package By Its “Package ID” In SCCM 2012 Console

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.
