    2.I seen SMSDPpro.log in DP share and found it importing package.. where it getting package from (don't have PCK file in the local server)? 

    3. After all the successful of import the very next day i saw in console it showing 65 success and 120 in progress.

  • Hi ,

    1.What are the folders are using at the time of sccm 2012 migration.
    -----------------------------
    Sorry that I didn't get the point of this question. Do you mean which folder are used on sccm 2012 to copy the content of SCCM 2007 DP packages?

             

    2.I seen SMSDPpro.log in DP share and found it importing package.. where it getting package from (don't have PCK file in the local server)?
    -----------------------------
    The package content is SCCM 2007 flowchart is:
    1. When you add a package to a standard Distribution Point, the distmgr component is notified with the packageID.PKN in inboxes\distmgr.box.

    2. The distmgr component begins the processing of the package

    3. Distmgr establishes a connection to the DP and checks for the SMSPKGdriveletter$ share.

    4. It creates a subdirectory with the package ID in the SMSPKGC$ share.

    5. Distmgr connects to the packageID folder it created and checks if the drive has the enough free space to copy the package contents:

    6. Distmgr sets the security on the \SMSPKGC$\<PkgID">\\<DP>\SMSPKGC$\<PkgID> folder and copies the package contents to that folder from the package source. It also copies the signature file (TAR file) to the SMSSIG$ share and sets the security on that folder:
     
    7. Distmgr runs the SQL query to update the status in the pkgstatus table in SQL.

    In SCCM 2012 or later, by default, the content is single storage and browsing to a DP does not store all the files in a package id folder where you could find an install and execute it.

    3. After all the successful of import the very next day i saw in console it showing 65 success and 120 in progress.

    Refresh the status and close the SCCM console, reopen and see if this helps. If you are using SCCM 2012 Sp1, check this KB http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2828900. Also check if this technet links helps:
