Package Transfer to DP restarts after failure SCCM 2012R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • In a remote site we have setup a DP.

    Now I am trying to distribute a large package (10GB) over the line which is 300KB/Sec So it takes a while.

    The connection to the remote site failes from time to time and what I see in:

    Component Status: SMS_PACKAGE_TRANSFER_MANAGER

    Is that the Package Transfer Manager is starting all over, from 0%.

    Is this normal? Shouldn't it continue from the point that the connection failed?

    So let's say the package was 30% done when the line failed. should it continue at 30% when the line comes back?

    Thanks

  • That's the way it works unfortunately. Workaround: create a pgkx file, ship it to the remote location (USB mendia) and import it using extractcontent.exe
