MSI Source update mgr running on every client RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    I have 35000 machines where packages dont find there MSI source location for repair or self heal process hence caused traffic on MP asking for DP location which results in SQL box bombarded with those request every 60 minutes even one package dont find source .

    We used NOmad which is not working as it does not find source from local machine from cache as in registry directory is pointing to different location and it also dont find it from DP as all DPS dont have all packages .

    My question is can i stop this MSI update source agent from client or change that from 1 hour to may be once a day for the time being .

  • is it tied in to when the client does a policy refresh which is by default every 60 mins, this can be changed in client settings but maybe not a good idea.

    Is it just a certain application that is trying to repair?

    It's worth having a read of this thread if you haven't already.

  • HI 

    Many thanks for that its only packages so far i have checked mostly were part of task sequence .

    Thats exactly the same issue its looks at c:\_cmtasksequec and dont find source than looks at URL which is our MP asking for DP location and says UDI not found.

    Option in Data Access to dowload contant and update DP is already ticked i have also redistributed the packages again but still not working .

  • Yes i did Message i get is different it get DP location and says 

    source list was updated for product {code.........),Though some of packages/apps associated with this product had no DP therfore source update will be retired .

    so it does the whole process again after 60 minutes.

    Its happeining on few packages which are mostly installed on all machines .

    If i remove this package from my machine and MSI source gets updated than instead of running after 60 minutes it runs only once in a day or if its triggered by the any action.

    Those options which are decribed by Brett are already ticked 

    like allow client to connect anonymously is ticked on DP.
