Client Package won't distribute on SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't get the the Configuration Manager Client Package to distribute to either of my 2 distribution points. Everything else seems to be distributing just fine though. When I try to edit the distribution settings it is grayed out, which I assume is because it is intend to auto-distribute, but it isn't.  I've done my fair share of googling and I have not been able to find the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    Details:

    Site version: 5.00.8239.1000 on Windows Server 2012 R2 DC edition

    On both distribution points it shows "In Progress".

    They both show Distribution Manager is waiting for package XXX00002 content to be prestaged on distribution point [] You must manually prestage the package XXX00002 on the distribution point before the content will be available.

    I tried to prestage the content but it would not let me choose the distribution points.

    Logs Checked:

    pkgXferMgr.log - Cycles every 20 minutes checking to see if there is new stuff to do. Doesn't find anything.

    distmgr.log - Failed to process package XXX00002 after 50 retries, will retry 50 more times.

    I also tried this code referenced here. I ran this as a .ps1.

    $SiteCode = "XXX"
    $PackageID = "XXX0002"
         $distpoints = Get-WmiObject -Namespace "root\SMS\Site_$($SiteCode)" -Query "Select * From SMS_DistributionPoint WHERE PackageID='$PackageID'"
            foreach ($dp in $distpoints)
            {
                    $dp.RefreshNow = $true
                    $dp.Put()

  • What does distmgr.log say?

    PkgXferMgr.log only records actual transfer activity. If there are issues, distmgr.log will have details.

  • I just saw in your original message that the DP is set for pre-staged content only. You need to disable that on the DPs properties.

  • Solution was here.

    I unchecked the box for "Enable this DP for prestaged content".
