How to change SCVMM 2008 R2 default library share

 

You can only do this on the same server using the same share name. There is no other way. It’s because default library share points to that share.

Use the following steps:

  • Stop the SCVMM service using the following command: net stop vmmservice
  • Write down the name and permissions (including NTFS) that has been set on the default VMM Share
  • Remove (delete) the existing share and create a new share on a new folder using the information you recorded
  • Create the same folder structure and move all your files to the new location (if you don’t you might end up with loads of missing items)
  • Start the SCVMM service using the following command: net start vmmservice
  • Make sure that you can access the new share

PS! Special thanks to Matthew Mattoon
