Distribution Manager failed to install Distribution Point RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a primary site and a secondary site and we are trying to install dp under secondary site. But we fail to install dp and receive  below error if we try to install the same using site server computer account.

    <<<

    "Distribution Manager failed to install Distribution Point

    Possible cause: Distribution Manager does not have sufficient rights to the computer.
    Solution: Verify that the site server computer account is administrator on the DP computer. "

    >>> We have given the site server computer account local admin access on the dp server. But the installation fails.

    If we install the DP using service account we are able to install DP successfully. But we need to install using site server computer account. So can you please help us. thanks.

  • Have you reviewed distmgr.log on the secondary site server?

    Have you reviewed the security event log on the intended DP to see why the account is not being allowed to log in or what may be wrong with the account log in?

  • Hi,

        Have you also added the secondary site server computer account to the local admin group on the DP server?

    Best regards,
