Secondary Site Distribution Point Migration succeeds but returns no Package Status data. RRS feed

  • Question

  • In a customer environment and in my own fresh lab environment, I have been undertaking sharing and then distribution point migration of Secondary Site servers and Distribution points on site systems.

    What I have found is that although the migration completes successfully and the client systems can access and download the content throughout the exercise - the content status is not accurately reflected in the Configuration Manager 2012 SP1 CU1 console.  If I look at the content status for migrated packages, it shows that 'x' distribution points are targeted but does not actually show that the migrated secondary site server DP's hold the content - even though they DO and clients are downloading from them.

    The smsdpprov.log on the migrated secondary site server shows that the content for my migrated packages has been added to the content library successfully.

    If I add new content to the package and update distribution points, then I can confirm that the DP accepts the changes and stores the amended package in the ContentLibrary however the status of the DP in the package remains 'unknown' and does not contribute to the % distributed on the content status node.  The migrated distribution point DOES show as a content location on the package properties though.

    NEW packages or packages NOT migrated are added to the migrated DP's fine and show correct status.

  • Further to this, I have found that despite initiating Validation and Redistribution of the migrated application to the 'Unknown' (migrated Secondary Site DP) the Content  Status remains showing there are 'unknown' DP's targeted but does not tell you which DP's are unknown.  The only way I have found so far of getting the Content Status showing correctly is to remove the DP from the package properties and re-add.

  • Anyone have any input on this from their own migration experiences?  Are your migrated/converted CM07 Secondary site servers showing as hosting the migrated content or as 'Unknown' ?
