Reserved site code used (CON) for secondary site, removed site, but errors in smsdbmon.log RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently created a secondary site using a reserved name (CON).  After a couple of days of troubleshooting a general slowdown on sccm I found that this reserved name and a couple of others cannot be used.  I have looked for a solution to this in another forum http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/configmgradminconsole/thread/8b4d0592-336a-423f-a23c-bfa4419843e3/ , but still no luck for a resolution.  I have since removed this secondary site and created another with a different site code (CIN) and all components such as software distribution, proxy management point, pxe role etc are all working apart from the smsdbmon.log file logging the following events continuously;

    Warning: Could not create file C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\inboxes\hman.box\CON.SSU, Error=6. SMS_DATABASE_NOTIFICATION_MONITOR 23/09/2010 00:23:01 16724 (0x4154)
    Warning: Could not create file C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\inboxes\WSUSMgr.box\CON.SHA, Error=6.

    Warning: Could not create file C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager\inboxes\ddmnotif.box\CON.SCA, Error=6.

    How can I resolve this error?  I have restarted the threads/services/system but no luck resolving it. 

    Central Primary Site (MAR), x64 Win 2008, SQL 2008.

    Secondary Site (CIN), x64 Win 2008
