SCCM Task Sequence Failed - Program failed (download failed - content mismatch) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are currently using Task Sequences in order to deploy software packages sometimes multiple sometimes simple packages.

    Our site setup means we have a CENtral server 3 primary and the rest made up of Secondary or BDP's.

    As the title suggests we seems to have this ever occuring issue where by ( for example my deployment today that prompted this)

    I am deploying Adobe and one other application to 400 machines last night. This morning I come into around 18% of these have failed and generally the error is similar to below:

       05/10/2010 16:11:44   Accepted   Program received   10002   12177032 
    Open the target  05/10/2010 22:59:01   Running   Program started   10005   12202192 
    Open the target  05/10/2010 23:04:06   Succeeded   Program completed with success   10008   12202596 
    Open the target  05/10/2010 23:04:07   Waiting   Waiting for content   10035   12202606 
    Open the target  05/10/2010 23:04:29   Failed   Program failed (download failed - content mismatch)   10057   12202849 
    Open the target  06/10/2010 05:00:01   Expired   Program expired   10019   12207830 

    As you can see highlights the download failed content-mismatch is my issue,.

    Now what is weird is that a large proportion work perfectly fine however 18% is to big a number to fail on a regular basis.

    I have searched the length and breath of the internet for answers and thet vary in how to potentially resolve it.

    I have tried updating the DP but that did not work, i have not turned of binary replication as its a BDP, im reluctant to do anything ultra extreme baring in mind that so mnay complete with no issues.

    In this TS there are two apps and on a few machines i have sampled the CAS.log file it seems to reference one or the other package that failed to downloard and sure as anything on that machine it is not in the cache folder.

     

    Anyone throw anylight on this be most apprecaited.

    Thanks in advance

  • Usually an "Update Distribution Point" works fine for these issues.  If you are still seeing that this isnt working you can modify the source path then change it back to its original source path and update this should change the content version and rereplicate the content.  If that does not work it might be easier to just remove from that BDP and wait until its fully removed from the BDP and then repush back down to it.


    Verify in the package status that the package is actually updating on the BDP.
