Distribution Point No Longer Appearing in Console RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here is the scenario.

    I had a DP which was no longer accepting packages,  I examined distmgr.log and I noticed WMI errors and access denied errors connecting to the DP.

    I then removed the DP role from the Console.  On the Server I then rebuilt WMI.  After that I then Re-added the DP role to the user and selected the DP to Install VIA my Service account instead of computer account.

    Distmgr.log shows that the connection was now successful and files have been re-uploaded. 

    Here is my problem,  the server is not appearing as a DP in the console now.  Meaning that I cannot join it to Distribution groups,  nor distribute packages and applications to it.       Has anyone ever come across a DP that does not show as  DP in the console?  I am baffled!

  • I got it to show now.  Removing the DP role was not enough.  I ended up deleting the entire server from SCCM.    I added it back and now it is showing as a DP.
