Hello all!


Let me start of by saying I'm a complete Noob with SCCM I've never used System Centre before let alone set it up!


So, I've been following the guides on here http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/4045-system-center-2012-configuration-manager-guides/ to setup a stand alone Primary server...


I'm having trouble deploying operating systems,

I've created a x32 and x64 boot image, added in my original Windows 7 Ent x32 OS Image and made up a task sequence as per the instructions on Windows Noob. When I publish anything it seems to work fine and reports that the publish task was successful but the content status pie chart is RED and says "Failed: 1"


If I click on content status under related objects, select any that had apparently "successfully deployed" to the distribution points they all have the same red pie chart and "Failed 1" ..... If I view the error in content status it reads


"Failed to connect to the remote distribution point"

Description: " Distribution manager failed to connect to the distribution point ["Display=\\servername.domain.com\"]MSWNET:["SMS_SITE_ALT"]\\Servername.domain.com\. Check your network and firewall settings."



A Google of that error massage brings up nothing useful.


I found a .LOG file called distmgr.log (I assume is the Distribution manager log) where the only other error message there is: "Failed to create/configure IIS virtual directories for the DP"



I'm not really sure what to do now... any one got any ideas?

Did you configure IIS and is the Site System computer account member of the local administrators on the DP?

And I have a domain admin account that is also in the local administrators group set.... in administration, site configuration, servers a site system roles, site system, properties, Site Systems Installation account, use another account for installing this site system,


Is that all correct? :S
