How to automate SCCM 2012 Task Sequence Media Creation

Just recently I went through the CM12 Console Task Sequence media creation wizard several times a day, so at some point I thought, this is a good candidate for automation.

If you have CU1 for SCCM 2012 SP1 already installed, you can take advantage of the new cmdlet New-CMTaskSequenceMedia Below an example.


If you haven’t installed CU1 yet, no worries. the command line tool CreateMedia.exe located in the SCCM Administrator Console’s bin directory does the same thing.


A detailed description of the command line options available for CreateMedia.exe is documented here.

All Task Sequence Media creation task activities are logged here:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\AdminConsole\AdminUILog\CreateTsMedia.log"
