Distribution manager failed to install distribution point. Possible cause : Distribution manager does not have sufficient rights to the computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am seeing the below error in the SCCM 2012 console after attempting to install remote dp. I have verified and is absolutely sure that the site server computer is added in the administrators group in the DP computer.

    Distribution manager failed to install distribution point. Possible cause : Distribution manager does not have sufficient rights to the computer

    I have tried reinstalling the DP without any luck.

  • Just because the host based firewall is turned off doesn't mean the traffic is making it -- there are many, many other things that can prevent the connection from being established. You need to troubleshoot why the traffic is not successfully making it. There's no way for anyone outside of your organization to know why and all we can really do is guess.

  • Hi,

    Have you installed IIS or missing some required components?

    Is there any external firewall device between remote DP and site server?

    Please also disable the AV software.

  • Hi,

    Enabled the option to install IIS during DP install and they appear to be there. Firewall disabled. AV disabled too.

    CWmi::Connect() failed to connect to \\XYZ.net\root\CIMv2. Error = 0x800706BA

    DPConnection::ConnectWMI() - Failed to connect to  XYZ.NET.

  • 1722 = RPC server unavailable. Firewall?

  • Hi Torsten,

    Firewall appears to be turned off on dp as well as on the site server

  • Hi,

    1. Check the ports are open between site server to distribution points,

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-in/library/hh427328.aspx

    2. Install the IIS manually

    3. Install the Distribution point

    Note : Primary site server should have admin access on this distribution point server.

  • First not that extracting single lines from a log file is meaningless. Log files are about context and flow which is completely lost when pulling single lines. Also, looking at log files isn't just about looking for errors, once again, it's about the flow.

    In this case, the errors above clearly indicate connection issues that you need to troubleshoot. The site server is attempting to connect to the RPC service of the DP but cannot. This can be for many, many different reasons including a firewall or other network device blocking the traffic. You'll have to troubleshoot this as there is no way for ConfigMgr to know why the connection cannot be made.

  • Thanks Jason. That makes sense. This install failure is isolated only to this particular dp and have tried pretty much all the suggestions that worked for others in similar scenarios. Will check with the network team to identify if something is blocking the traffic.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
