Failed to update binaries distribution point upgrade sccm 2007 to sccm 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    we have sccm 2007 and we have just installed sccm 2012,

    so i upgraded distribution points to sccm 2012.

    i can upgrade successfully most of distribution points.

    but one of them couldnt upgraded.

    so i check the distmgr.log file i saw an error that :

    "CWmi::Connect() failed to connect to \\SrvrDistribution\root\default. Error = 0x800706BA"

    i checked the following :

    - i have permission (i added sccm2012 machine account to administrators group)

    - there isnt any local or network firewall between sccm2012 and distribution point machine

    - i can access distribution point machine by using dns. there is dns record in dns.

    so i searched on internet about error 0x800706BA.

    it means rpc server unavailable. but i checked it services...bits,wmi,rpc,com+ services are running.

    i rebooted the server but there isnt any change.

    how can i fix it ?

    note : i suspect the machine name "SrvrDistribution". maybe there is a bug about length of machine name. it has 16 character. is it a problem ? http://support.microsoft.com/kb/163409

    extra information : distribution point machine is windows server 2003 standart edition service pack 2.

    i installed and configured iis manually. also i installed rollup for sccm 2012.

  • These errors even showed up for successful upgrades I've done. Does it actually stop or continue on with the upgrade?

  • From the primary:

    1. Start - Run

    2. wbemtest

    3. Connect

    4. Enter the namespace as: \\SrvrDistribution\root\default

    Does it connect?

  • Hi Guys,

    Anyone sort this out? I am experiencing the exact same issue..

    Currently have 1 Primary and 1 Secondary Site with 13DP's that I have to migrate..

    Question 1. Is there a way to bulk reassign distribution point? Yes i have upgraded to R2..

    Question 2. I manually reassigned 1 of the DP's and received the error 'failed to update binaries'. I have however been able to connect via wbemtest. I can still see in programs that SCCM 2007 is still installed? In 2012 console, I can see it as a Distribution Point.. What the...
