Brand new 2012 DP: Content is being redistributed to the distribution point - for 24 hours RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just setup a brand new 2012 distribution point, and cannot get even the standard built in Configuration Client Package to copy over to it.

    I redistributed the package yesterday and nothing is happening.  Status just remains at:  Content is being redistributed to the distribution point

    I've deleted and re-added the DP to no avail

    Don't know which log to look at or what else to check out.  Anyone one with any thoughts?

    Thanks!!!!

  • look at distmgr.log on the site server. Did you enable BITS and Remote differential compression on the remote DP server (If not setup will fail), and did you add the main site server account to the local admin group on the remote DP point? Here's a pretty good post about setting up a remote DP point you can just ignore the PXE related settings: http://www.niallbrady.com/2012/06/14/how-can-i-add-a-pxe-enabled-distribution-point-on-server-2008-x86-for-system-center-2012-configuration-manager/

  • Hi Justin,

    Everything you mentioned checks out.  All those roles are installed on the DP.  Setup actually is successful on the DP, it's just that it won't push any content to the DP.

    BITS is not needed on DPs (only MPs).

  • I second Justin's question: distmgr.log. See also pkgxfermgr.log

    Torsten...

    No reference to the DP can be found in the pkgxfermgr.log file

    The distmgr.log file shows successful DP creation. But I do see a lot of failure messages for this particular server.  Is there a way to post the contents of this log file on these forums?

  • Just upload them to Skydrive or just paste the relevant lines.

    The file is called milan.txt

    Thank you for your help.

  • No content distribution activities can be found in the log. Have you already tried distributing another package/application to it?
