Distribution Point Issue RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,
    I have an intermittent issue on some DPs. Also checked dstmgr.log and
    Distribution Manager failed to connect to the
    distribution point ["Display=\\server.x\"]MSWNET:["SMS_SITE=Y"]\\server.x\.
    Check your network and firewall settings.
    "error = 0x800706ba Failed
    to find a valid drive on the distribution point"
    The following things
    are in place....
    1. Enable Windows Authentication in IIS
    2. Installed
    IIS 6 WMI Compatibility
    3. TCP port 80, 135, 445 are open
    Can any
    one help me out ?
    Rgds, Irshad

  • You need more than that open for RPC -- you need open the dynamic high RPC ports as well: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc738291%28v=ws.10%29.aspx
