Description

Use this cmdlet to change the settings of a package. For more information, see Packages and programs in Configuration Manager.

Note

Run Configuration Manager cmdlets from the Configuration Manager site drive, for example PS XYZ:\>. For more information, see getting started.

Examples

Example 1: Rename a package and add a description

This command renames the package that has the ID ST120001 to ScriptsPackage02 and adds a description.

Set-CMPackage -Id "ST120001" -NewName "ScriptsPackage02" -Description "This package deploys scripts that run on a recurring schedule."

Example 2: Change the package source path

The first command gets the package that has the ID ST120001, and stores the results in the $Pkg variable. The second command changes the package source path.

$pkg = Get-CMPackage -Id "ST120001"
Set-CMPackage -InputObject $pkg -Path "\\sources\cmpkg$\newpkg01"

-Confirm

Add this parameter to prompt for confirmation before the cmdlet runs.

-CopyToPackageShareOnDistributionPoint

Clients can always download a package from a distribution point. If you set this parameter to $true, the site makes it available via a named network share on distribution points. Use CustomPackageShareName to specify a custom share name.

When you enable this option, more space is required on distribution points. It applies to all distribution points to which you distribute this package.

-CustomPackageShareName

If you enable CopyToPackageShareOnDistributionPoint, you can use this parameter to customize the share name. The maximum length is 127 characters, and can't include any of the following characters: " / [ ] : | < > + = ; , ? *. You can specify a share name and a folder name, but then the maximum for each is 80 characters. For example, ShareName\FolderName.

-Id

Specify the ID of a package to configure. This value is a standard package ID, for example: XYZ00020.

Type:String
Aliases:PackageId
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InputObject

Specify a package object to configure. To get this object, use the Get-CMPackage cmdlet.

Type:IResultObject
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Language

Specify a language string for the package. You can use a maximum of 32 characters in a format that you choose to use to identify the language version. To identify a package, Configuration Manager uses the Language, Manufacturer, Name, and Version parameters. For example, you can have an English version and a German version of the same package.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Manufacturer

Specify the manufacturer name for the software. You can use a maximum of 32 characters. To identify a package, Configuration Manager uses the Language, Manufacturer, Name, and Version parameters.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MifFileName

Specify the name of the Management Information Format (MIF) file that contains the package status. The file name extension must be .mif. Use a status MIF file to generate detailed status reporting. To generate a status MIF file, your application must call the InstallStatusMIF function. For more information, see Status MIF Functions.

If you set this parameter, when the client runs the deployment, the Configuration Manager client looks in the %TEMP% directory or the %windir% directory for the installation status MIF file that you specify. The installation status indicates whether the program successfully ran.

If the client doesn't find the file, it searches for all MIF files in those directories. It makes a case-insensitive comparison of the values that you specify for MifName, MifPublisher, and MifVersion to the values that the MIF file specifies. If the client finds a match, it uses the status that the MIF file specifies as the installation status for the program. If it can't find a match, or if you don't specify MifFileName, the client uses the program exit code to set the installation status for the program. An exit code of zero indicates that the program successfully ran. Any other values indicate application-specific error codes.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MifName

Specify the name of the package for MIF matching, up to 50 characters. For more information, see the MifFileName parameter.

Type:String

-MifPublisher

Specify the software publisher of the package for MIF matching, up to 32 characters. For more information, see the MifFileName parameter.

Type:String
Position:Named

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
