PCK file not contains all files


  • Hi Experts,

    (sorry, I know this is for SCCM 2007 forum, but we are in the progress of migration from 2003 to 2007... hope you still can help)

    We have a SMS2003 server which sometimes distributed incomplete package to the distribution points.  We found the PCK files are not containing all the files from the source.  But if we refresh the distribution point again, the PCK is complete.  We have no idea when would this happen, and the sms logs are purged all the times.

    Wonder if any of you have seen this type of problem?  What is the root course and how to prevent it happen again.

  • there isn't enough details for anyone to answer this... my guess is that you are seeing delta replication and hence why the pkg files don't included everything.

  • That is normal, that is exactly what delta replication does. However Delta replication does need the full pck files and if someone has deleted the original pck file from the primary or secondary site. You will need to force a full deployment of the package to that site.

  • Hi Garth,

    Thanks for your reply but the package was newly created in the SMS.. so this should be the FULL package, right ?

    My case is even the newly created package, it doens't contains all the files....

    Do you have any idea ?
