Hi, i have installed SCCM 2012 Primary Site on Windows Server 2008 R2, and have several Windows Server 2003 SP2 with Distribution Point Sistem Role but in some cases when a try to install another Distribution Point in some W2K3 i recibe this error:
"Failed to create virtual directory"
I have reviewed and tested everything in this article : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917485
but I still have the same problems, I even uninstalled IIS on that server and sent again installing the Distribution Point role but I still have problems.
In the distmgr.log I get the following error message:
ERROR ExecMethod(): Failed to execute AppCreate2. error = COM+ was unable to talk to the Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator
ERROR CheckDPforDrizzle: Could not find the desired DP ["Display=\\FQDNSERVER\"]MSWNET:["SMS_SITE=CCR"]\\FQDNSERVER\ in the SCF
Error occurred. Performing error cleanup prior to returning.
And in the CM Status Message i get this one:
Failed to create virtual directory on the defined share or volume on distribution point "["Display=\\cr-fi-tein-sv01.FreshDelmonte.corp\"]MSWNET:["SMS_SITE=CCR"]\\cr-fi-tein-sv01.FreshDelmonte.corp\".
Possible cause: Distribution Manager requires that IIS base components be installed on the local Configuration Manager Site Server in order to create the virtual directory. Distribution Manager also requires that IIS Web Services be installed on the Distribution Point Server that needs to support Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS).
Solution: Verify that IIS base components are installed on the local Configuration Manager Site Server, and IIS Web Services are installed on the Distribution Point Server.
I have reviewed and conducted many tests but without success, if anyone has been able to solve this problem, I would appreciate.
