Distribution Manager Isn't Distributing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using the SCCM Site Repair Wizard to create a copy of my production environment in my lab, but I'm having a problem with Distribution Manager. 

    I have 3 packages that have their source files on odd, one-off servers.  I didn't bother to restore those in the lab, because they're not necessary for what I'm doing now.   Currently Distribution Manager has fixated on one of these packages and keeps trying to distribute it, failing because the source files aren't there.  I wouldn't care, but nothing else has been distributed to my distribution point. 

    In the lab I have created a VM that is acting as my SMS Primary Site server/SQL Server (just like in production), and another to act as the source for 99% of my packages, and my distribution point.

     How can I get Distribution Manager to move on?  I've deleted the package, but that didn't have any effect.

  • A script that changes the package source on a deleted package?
    Not sure whether this is still a problem as I believe the distmgr would give up after 7 days.

  • I would write a script using the ConfigMgr SDK that changes the package source (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc144959.aspx)
