New Site Server with Distribution Point & Software Update Point Roles not pulling SUGs RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just set up a new server & installed the DP & SUP roles on it.  I am getting the following in the log this is just a small sample as its kind of repetative:

    The Console shows for the DP that it's waiting for content and I don't see where I can create a Prestage Package

  • No, that's the whole point of a DP in the first place: to make content available for clients at remote locations without having them traverse WAN links to get the content. Prestaged means you are delivering the content to the DP using some other non-ConfigMgr mechanism to get it there.

    Yes, that's what you should do unless you are planning on manually staging the content. It's a simple checkbox on the DP role's properties dialog.

  • Sorry, I'm not understanding your question. DPs have nothing to do with Software Update Groups. Do you mean Deployment Update Packages?

    Also, what log file is the above from?

    Can you please describe the scenario, what you have configured, what actions you have performed, and what you are trying to do?

    Also, is there a reason you are asking about prestaged content?

  • D:\SMS_DP$\sms\logs\smsdpmon.log

    This is the 2nd server in our SCCM 2012 Sp1 Hierarchy.  It is set up with the following Site System Roles:

    • Component Server
    • Distribution Point
    • Site System
    • Software Update Point

    It is Prestaged Enabled.  My intent is that the client systems @ the location where this DP is located will use it to pull their Microsoft Updates from as well as content for any Applications we push to them rather than going over the WAN to the Primary Site Server.

    IN Distribution Point Configuration Status. the console shows "Failed to update package" & "Packaget Transfer Manager failed to update the package "yxz00040". Version 3 on Distribution Point server.my.domain.com review pkgxfermgr.log for more information about this failure."

    It also goes on toe list 2 possible causes and solutions

    1. Site servers does not have sufficient rights to the source directory.
    2. (Site server account is a member of local Administrators on Primary)
    3. Not enough disk space available
    4. (I have over 1TB of available space and primary site server has only 150GB available for entire content repository, both applications and sofware updates.)

  • First, note that SUPs have nothing to do with delivering actual update binaries/files to clients. They are used exclusively to deliver the update catalog to clients.

    Next, if your DP is enabled for prestaged content, then it will only accept prestaged content. Is there a specific reason you have selected this option? Note that this option has nothing to do with how clients acquire content and only dictates how DPs acquire content. Thus, unless you were wanting to ship all content to the DP out-of-band (like using physical media) you shouldn't have that option selected.

  • I had thought that by using the prestaged option then that would put the packages and software updates ON the DP so that the clients weren't trying to reach across the WAN each time we did a deployment.  If this is not the case should I turn off the prestaged capability?  Is doing so easily achieved?

  • Thanks!  So, I have cleared that check box. 

    I have another question, if I need to start a new thread I am ok with that, but is there a way to set an affinity for the workstations to use the DP at this location?  How does the client know to use it?

  • Yes. Clients use DPs based on your site's boundaries and their inclusion in boundary groups marked for content location.
