  1. Hi! Yesterday I tried to create a distribution point on a Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 x86 machine because on SCCM 2007 we have about 110 small locations with a BDP. So we need this feature in 2012, too. I clicked through the wizard to add a new site system but on the Windows 7 machine nothing happens. The client is already installed and everything else works fine. I configured the site server and network access account as domain admin. The client push installation also works fine. What's wrong? On the Technet Library for SCCM 2012 I could'nt find any solution. Did anyone (or anyweb :-) tried this and got this working? Has the DP machine to have a x64 architecture? Thanks for help.

  3. We are having a very difficult time locating any posts, forum topics, or ms bulletins in regards to the attached distmgr.log file. If anybody of you knowledgeable helpful users on the forum can assist in ANY way, please feel free to offer any suggestions. We currently are unable to distribute any new data, sync dp's, etc... We have performed a site reset. We have removed MP role. We have removed and replaced the mentioned file. Kind of at a loss. Short of rebuilding the main site server, I'm not too sure as to our next step. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance. distmgr.log mpcontrol.log
  4. I need help with Software Updates on SCCM 2012. Client machine has "Downloading (0% complete)" in the Software Center for every update. There are about thirty updates that apply to this client machine. What I have done: Created an Update List Created a Deployment Package with the Updates. Downloaded the Updates and distributed the content to a DP. Content status is success. A Boundary is defined for the client. The Boundary is in a Boundary Group. The Boundary Group is assigned to the DP. The Deployment for the Update List is targeted to a Collection with one machine in it. Updates are ‚Äčavailable as soon as possible. Updates are mandatory at a future date. Why are the updates all "Downloading (0% complete)" in the Software Center? Am I missing something? Thanks.
  5. As title says I am having some issues with my Azure cloud distribution point. First some info about my Azure cloud setup: It is set up with 2 certificates with common name of my FQDN to my Windows Azure. Exported them to the sccm-site server. Configmgr group have read and enroll rights. 1 certificate (.cer) is without a key, uploaded to Windows Azure. Second key (.pfx) was used when setting up cloud dp in the SCCM console. It was set up successfully as far as i can tell and according to the cloudmgr.log on SCCM-server: Deployment instance status for service 75dcea72c6724f99a68bcda7 is StartingVM.~~

  6. Hello everyone, I am setting up IBCM and am looking at the DP cert requirements. In the TechNet documentation and walk throughs, this cert is often configured for auto enrollment from ADCS with private key marked exportable. There's no mention of Subject Alternative Names... but my spidey sense is that I need them to share the cert properly. My question is, if I have a primary site server and an Internet site server (for IBCM), would I need to request this cert with SANs? Would the SANs need to include the internal server name, the external server name, AND the Internet FQDN name? And then I would install this cert on both servers? (Update) I failed slightly at reading comprehension, a different TechNet page than I originally reviewed DOES at least say this about the DP cert: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg699362.aspx "There are no specific requirements for the certificate Subject or Subject Alternative Name (SAN), and you can use the same certificate for multiple distribution points. However, we recommend a different certificate for each distribution point." Interesting. So I can share the cert, but they suggest not to. And the SAN doesn't seem to matter. But is this really true? Anybody who's implemented can verify one way or the other how they did it? Thanks.
  7. Hi, In my environment I have 3 locations for Operation System Deployments. Each one has its own DP and boundaries group. We have a very slow OSD process in one of them (3-4 for one deployment, other DPs take less than an hour) The only difference betwen the slow DP and the others DPs is that it's a VM with WS 2012. The other two DPs are WS 2008 and they are physical servers. We tried to change the NIC on VM Server with no luck. We also checked possible networking issues with the infraestructure team and we didn't notice any problem. Do you guys think that it could be a VM problem? Any help would be appreaciated Thanks and regards
  8. Hi, We are currently running SCCM 1606, and have a mix of Win7 and Win10 images. The probleme is the updated WIM file is not being updated on the DP, there is no error message, it shows up updated time stamp, however the image is not updated and keeps the same size. I'm thinking to delete the current image from the DP then distributing the new one Have you ever seen that before?
  9. Hi everyone, Currently, our company has 2 sites(Site A, site B)in different locations, and we already setup 1 SCCM 2012 R2 server in site A which as a primary server to deploy software, OS, patches to all PCs in 2 site. So my boss wanna build one more server to reduce its resource requirements and improve its performance as well as to load balance the potentially significant network traffic generated by clients downloading package source files. I found out 2 solutions: Solution 1. Setup one distribution point in Site B, so boundary group in site B will get applications, patches content from this new DP, and boundary group in site A still get a content from old one. So if I distribute 1 application contents from DP A to DP B, will PCs in site A will get software content from DP B? For example: In SCCMconsole, I select Winzip, click distribute content, then select DP B, so the PCs in site B can be deploy Winzip quickly right now, but how about PCs in site A, it will deploy from DP B as well, make it slowly, how can I get rid of this issue? Solution 2. Setup 1 secondary SCCM server in Site B, but with this solution, do I need to build 1 more server for central administration site(CAS), thus need 3 servers for SCCM(1 CAS, 1 primary, 1 secondary), is it possible if I just create secondary site without CAS? Actually we just have 400 PCs , no need to build hierarchy with CAS. I'm new in SCCM, so I don't know how to fulfill the requirement, pls advise Thanks so much.
  10. I have a single primary 1606 site, I went to configure the Site System Prerequisites on a new DP I was rolling out on Windows Server 2012 R2, I reviewed the following TechNet article https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt752493.aspx, which was last updated 2016/07/22 there is a note that clearly states " The distribution point site system role does not require Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS). When BITS is configured on the distribution point computer, BITS on the distribution point computer is not used to facilitate the download of content by clients that use BITS." I'm confused, does SCCM Current Branch use BITS anymore?
  11. Hi everyone, I am facing a strange issue. After distribution of 3 applications (not packages) failed on a DP, i decide to remove those from the DP by doing this trought the DP propertiets (content tab) Now i am trying to distribute again those application to the DP, but never distributed. The DP is always shown in available DP. Is somebody have an idea ? I can't recreate the applications because we have so many DP and PullDP. Thanks Gvlaarho
  12. Hi All I am stuck with a problem in SCCM 2012. It is unable to distribute newly packaged content. The DP just says "starting to process content" and doesnt change. I have removed the DP from the server and re-added it. Reinstalled IIS Recreated the package(s) Installed update http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2854009 I still have the issue, All the distmgr.log file says it "Package is already in the queue" One thing to note: I tested the DP by removing the SMSPKG (driveletter) $ share, but recreating the DP does not re-create this share. This started mid July, no SCEP definitions are currently being deployed. All work has been done on the Primary Site server, the data for the packages are also stored on this server. Version 5.00.7804.1000 Build number 7804 Thank you Morne
  13. Our environment contains a CAS site and 3 Site servers. Currently each site server has 1 DP and 1 MP. Because of a firewall and various security limitations, we are setting up a new DP, MP and update point that reports to one of the existing site servers. We use SCCM for OS Deployments. We Use Site Based boot media today. I do not see the benefit of selecting dynamic Media option when creating a boot disk because I still have to enter in a DP. So in my existing setup, does it just make sense to still use Site base media but have 2 boot disks for my one sccm site that has 2 MP and DPs. All the computers that report to the 2nd MP/DP will in their own boundary I haven't investigated what I am going to do with DP groups. Currently we don't use them.
  14. My task sequence fails with - "this task sequence cannot run because the program files for 00100002 cannot be located on a distribution point" (00100002 is config manager client). Does anyone have any idea why? I notice that my client package says 0 programs and has DEPLOY greyed out, so cant be deployed. Has anyone seen this before? the 'version' field is also blank
  15. Hi i have struggling with some of my distribution points, when i look at the \Monitoring\Overview\Distribution Status\Distribution Point Configuration Status it reports as my DP all green and fine. but i had some of our engineers complaining applications were not downloading. When i looked into it the content was missing. so I used the SCCM toolkit, and the content library explorer, i noticed there were many packaged greyed out with a (PENDING) at the end. but when i checked the DP List there was no distribution happening. so i have to basically go back to the application and redistribute them. why is it miss reporting ??? any pointers appreciated
  16. Hey Guys / Niall - I recently started in a new position to help implement and advise on SCCM 2012 (1511) as well as the setup of all features including converting them from using imaging to OSD, Application deployment, Software Updates, etc - at least all the basics except for Forefront. Quite a task, but sounds fun to me. I learned something today which I'm questioning so wanted to post and get opinions. I've implemented SCCM in about 5 production environments before and for each one; have had at least a distribution point at each local site. If a site didn't have one; it was understood that they would only experience limited support. Today, I found out that our multiple point site will only have a total of 3 DPs - and - they were told this would be ok by Microsoft - even for using OSD at each one. Microsoft's Recommended Plan The ~30 locations are spread out around the country. Each of these 30 locations connects to one of 3 datacenters via various speeds of connection like T1, 500k, (some fast, some really slow). I was told that "Microsoft advised" that it would be ok for them to create a distribution site (they are actually doing secondary sites) in each of the 3 datacenters. The primary server (4th site server) is offsite from the corporate office in a datacenter that we have a 100mb connection to. Overall I understand that having a 100mb connection to the primary may not be the worst thing ever for doing something like OSD if only running 1-2 at a time, but cannot imagine supporting OSD at all 30 of these locations with the setup above - even with BranchCache - not to mention all other services. So - what are your thoughts? Am I just crazy to think this or do you believe we have a problem on our hands? Thanks Guys!
  17. Hi Everyone, I have a strange issue that I'd like some help on please. I've used the build and capture task sequence to capture a wim image. I add this wim to my Operating System Images and then run through the Scheduled Updates wizard. This all looks to work fine and I can see in my image's directory a .bak of my image alongside the slightly larger originally named, now with updates included wim file. The properties of the imported image list all of the updates that I requested to be installed - so all looks good to me(?) It's at this point that I deploy the image to the distribution point. And here's the problem, the size of the image on the distribution point is the same as the .bak image version and when I use this in a deployment task sequence the updates are of course missing. Is there a step that I am missing somewhere? I have deleted the .bak image from the directory and re-uploaded the image to the DP but that hasn't made a difference. I can delete the image from the SCCM console and re-import it and that will be fine, although as SCCM will not list the installed updates under the 'installed updates' tab in the image properties - and this seems like extra work. Has anyone else had this issue? Many thanks
  18. I have an SCCM 2012 R2 distribution point that was accidentally reinstalled (the DP role removed, then re-added - no content was deleted) the packages and content library are all still on the DP, is there any way to get the reinstalled DP to recognize and associate with the now old content? it seems like it should just be a matter of recreating the content mapping, but I have no Idea how to do that. Please help!
  19. Hi! I have various computers in the correct bounderary (correct IP og AD), but connectingen to a DP outside that bounderary.... someone has an idea how to tackel this one ?
  20. I have a 2012 R2 SP1 primary site that is servicing the main campus of the University I work at. All the site servers are located in the main campus data center. We also have a remote campus about 15 miles away from the main campus which utilizes the the servers in the main campus data center. For the most part this hasn't caused any issues, however when techs at the remote campus try to PXE boot and image a device, the TFTP portion of the boot process takes 10+ min to download the boot image as opposed to the 30 sec it takes on the main campus. Compounded when imaging multiple machines at once, 10 minutes turns into 20, 30, and so on, and is not feasible for the techs at the remote site. We have worked with our network engineers to verify that there were no problems on the network causing this difference and after A LOT of testing we determined that everything is working correctly as it is currently designed. The time difference comes from how TFTP works with the whole send 1 packet, receive 1 packet process. On the main campus, this isn't much of a problem but the minuscule bit of extra time between packets going back and forth from the main campus to the remote campus adds up to the extra time in the boot process (we actually drew out the math). So now, half of us are of the mind that we need to put a DP at the remote campus wants to start doing registry hacks and messing with DLLs to increase the TFTP window size. Is there any criteria (Physical distance, bandwidth, latency, clients managed, etc) on when it is appropriate to place a DP (or any other roles) at a remote site? Any documentation I can show about the matter would be helpful. Thanks!
  21. Hi Everyone Strange problem we seem to be getting - wonder if anyone else has found the same issue... Standard task sequence for deploying Windows 7 x86 and some standard software, used on 7 remote sites each using a local distribution point One site seems to keep failing, on installing a custom application. Same task sequence works on other sites without issue on same make and model of machine Rebuilt the distribution point onto the same hardware, from Svr2008 up to Svr2012R2 - still failed task sequence Built a new DP as a virtual machine for testing - distributed content needed - failed the task sequence Convert the application to a package and it works fine! - but that seems to be a step backwards, and the TS works without issue at all other sites! Anyone have any ideas on what to look at or try? Thanks John
  22. Hi All, Has anyone ever written a script or report to pull out packages and applications which are not distributed to any DPs? We are wanting to do some cleaning up of our source folder... Thanks John
  23. Hi all, I've just setup a lab environment at home, I'm currently limited to 8GB RAM on my desktop. I've got one VHD with Server 2008 R2 with the ADDS and DNS roles, it's got SQL Server 2008 R2 running on it as well as SCCM 2012 RC. Performance is fine and works quite nicely However, my question is, every time I try to add the Distribution Point role to this server nothing appears in the list of Distribution Point servers and nothing in the Distribution Point Configuration Status view. Is there anything I have to do other than go through the Add Site System Roles and add the DP role? Can a primary site server be a DP or does it need to go on a separate server? Are there any log files I can check after I've added the role? Any help would be awesome Thanks, Dale
  24. Hello, I recently installed CM 2012R2 as a single site with SQL server and 7 disk drives on the same machine. Now when I'm checking site system status, the distribution point Site system role is installed on all disks. Is it normal?
  25. We have an AutoCAD program that we just added, and the installation package size is 25gb. I distributed the content to the DP and gave it a day to make sure it copied over...checked the content status in the SCCM console and it said that it had been distributed. When we advertised the program, it failed...the client logs said that it could not find the package. So I started looking on the server and distmgr.log repeatedly has the following lines: "Found notification for package 'XXXXXXXX'" "Package 'XXXXXXXX' (priority 2) is already in the queue" ... "Package 'XXXXXXXX' is found in active queue, will try it later" I've tried updating the DP, as well as removing the package from the DP...still the same message in the logs. We had an issue a short while ago in which we had to reinstall our MP...I'm wondering if I don't need to also reinstall our DP, but I'm worried about what sort of implications go along with that. Is there a way to clear this 'active queue'? Note that this is not a BITS transfer...using bitsadmin /list shows 0 active transfers...also, this DP is located on the primary server. All other system statuses are good. Thanks for any input!
