SCCM 2012 SP1 - Failed to connect tt remote distribution point

Hi Guys,

I have built a new SCCM 2012 wSP1 server that is the only SCCM server. When I try and "Distribute Content", everything looks to work fine. However when you look at the Content Status it has failed with the message:

"Failed to connect to remote distribution point"
Distribution manager failed to connect to the distribution point ["Display=\\server.fqdn\"]MSWNET:["SMS_SITE=ABC"]\\server.fqdn\. Check your network and firewall settings.

Open in new window

The firewall is disabled, BITS is enabled as far as I can tell on the "CCM_Incoming" virtual directory.

The NAA has been set and passes the verification tests.

Thanks for your help

Thanks for the reply, I have been using the same account I installed with and still get the error. I switched to System Account to test, but same error.
Check the  Schedule.log      which records site-to-site job and package replication.

You may also find useful info one:

ContentTransferManager.log      Schedules the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) or the Server Message Block (SMB) to download or to access SMS packages.
DataTransferService.log      Records all BITS communication for policy or package access.

DataTransferService.log has no errors and says download complete and doesnt give an error.
There is no ContentTransfer log.

I have managed to get past this, I missed a BITS component in the install. I am now getting "Failed to access or create the content share".
