How do I stop the distribution manager from retrying 100 times? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hopefully there is a quick answer to this.  I was experimenting with a server share distribution point and did not configure permissions properly.  I want to remove it and create a dp on a different server now.  However, the package copy does not stop after removing the server share dp.  I am getting error messages in the distmgr.log and entries like this:  "Failed to process package VFB0017F after 80 retries, will retry 20 more times."

    I have Windows 2003 SP2 server running SCCM 2007 SP2 R2.

    Is there a way to abort these retries now?  Can I restart a service without taking down the other admin consoles (of course this is production environment).  We are small enough company that I can restart during the day if necessary, but I thought there may be another less drastic solution.  Thanks!

  • Thanks for the quick reply!  I changed the number of retries in the component configuration to 2 and it stopped right away.  No need for the hotfix at this time.

  • Actually, even though the distmgr.log shows there will be no more retries, the package keeps retrying 2 times, then starts the count over.  I will be applying the hotfix asap!

    This really helped me fix my distribution issue on DP.
