Bulk prestage file vs Individual package prestage files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are in the process of migration from SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012 and doing bulk prestage of files (create a single prestage file with multiple packages in it) and extracting them on to the remote distribution point. However, we are facing issues with this process, where in the status messages of prestaged content dont reflect in the console unless we assign the packages to the DP. Here is the tricky part, after package assignment, pkgtransfer manager starts sending files to remote DP on which the content has already been prestaged. But when we try to prestage the content for packages that have their own content file, the status messages reflect immediately even when the packages are not assigned to the dp (Enable this distribution point for prestaging option is checked). This is a very strange behaviour that we observed. Could  you please let me know what exactly needs to be done in order for status messages to reflect immediately on the console. Thanks in advance.. :)

  • Hi,

    Please try the content validation feature on the DP.
