configuration Distribution Point package access details RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • hello all, we are struggling hard to cleanup Package\Patches\OS related content on DP's as previous engineers don't have a SOP to perform the same.

    now I am trying to find the best process to cleanup the content from DP which is not used since past 6 months, tried to find in WMI when was the package last accessed by clients but could not find.

    could some one help me the best way to cleanup the content.

  • ConfigMgr doesn't keep track of this at a content level. You could query to see the last time a deployment was enforced though and extrapolate that to the content referenced by the deployment.

  • thanks for your reply Jason,

    we have third party app Portal site where we can use the deployment details.

    but for some we don't have deployments but still we use it in TSQ, its tough for me to cleanup these content :-(

  • There's no magic answer here really. ConfigMgr simply doesn't track this in any way.

    You could consolidate IIS logs on all of your DPs and then parse through them -- that wouldn't necessarily be difficult but would take some investment on your part although a SIEM tool (like Splunk) would make that pretty easy actually.
