distribution manager failed to connect to the distribution point RRS feed

  • Question

  • After upgrading my distribution point to windows server 2012 standard I can't distribute content to my distribution point.

    I see the following error.

    source: SMS Server

    Component: SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER

    message id 2391

    Distribution Manager failed to connect to the distribution point Check your network and firewall settings.

    The firewall is not enabled. 

    wbemtest is able to connect to the remote server that has the distribution point role installed.

    The network access account is working.

    How do I fix this?

    Doing this in-place is completely unsupported. You'll need to remove the DP and reinstall it.

  • Is the site server part of local admin on the DP??

  • but why does it most of the time work? I did inplace upgrade at least 6 times from 2008 R2 to 2012 R2 and every DP except one works fine.

    I'm not completely sure, but I think, my faulty one, that I'm trying to get working, was working correctly after the inplace upgrade. But as I said, that is only a theory, I'm just curious if that's possible.

    I have the same issue as described above.

    That does not change the fact that it is still not supported.
    "Why" cannot be answered without knowing any details (logs, error messages etc).
