Remote DP requirements RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am facing some issue when trying to create a DP on a remote server.. I am always getting:

    Failed to access or create the content share

    or

    Failed to connect to remote distribution point

    or

    Failed to install distribution point.

    I am using a domain admin to install the DPs and it is already added to the local administrator group on the remote sites.

    I think it is something related to the firewall, so appreciate if anyone can help me with the firewall ports or allowed application required to be modified in the local firewall.

    Thanks you

  • The ports used are listed here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh427328.aspx (Site Server -- > Distribution Point).

  • Thank you, I checkd these ports and they are all open but I still have the same issue

  • Have you tried to make your Site Server member of the Administrators Group on the DP to see if it makes any difference... ?

  • Yes I did, no luck.

  • What does distmgr.log tell?

    Did you turn off the firewall then perform a test to discount the firewall entirely?

    You are using Domain Admin to install the DP, instead allow the Site server's computer account to do this, add the site servers computer account to the target DP OS Administrators local group and then try again.

  • Normal stracture,  one primary server and many DPs.

  • What OS Version is your remote DP? Can you ping your remote DP (bhisabdc1 and bhisabdc1.aub.net)? Is there other Windows roles installed on the remote DP?

  • Hi dekac99

    it is wind server 2008 r2, yes I can ping it and it is only a DP, no other roles are installed.

    Thanks

  • The 0x800706ba error is "The RPC Server Unavailable". Sometimes disjoining the machine from the domain and rejoining it can help.
