SCCM 2007 Packages stopped updating

I have a single SCCM 2007 Site with one server.
I just discovered that the DP is not updating 8 packages.
Nothing has changed and it was working fine.  The last update to the DP was on Jan 25 2014 from what I can see.
I tried to create a new package to see if it would create it in the DP, but the package status just has Install Pending.

Here is a snippet of the distmgr.log

CreatePackageSignature() called for Package NYC000FF with version 241 with source as \\XXXXX.local\Files\DeploymentShare\_Release\Mozilla_Firefox_21.0. KeepUnpackedSignature = 1	SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER	2/13/2014 9:45:05 PM	5828 (0x16C4)

Have you rebooted the server?  If that's not possible, I would kill smsexec and restart it from services.msc.

Seems that there is a not existing Folder Location?!

Is there a way to see what account is running/managing SCCM ?

Check out "SMS Executive" in the Windows Services.
Try to access the Share maybe the permissons aren't correct.
I would suggest to remove and readd a package and check again

From the server I am able to access the shares without any issues.
This is very strange.

Share Permission on the SMSPKG$ share is Everyone (Full Access) and the NTFS Permission has the proper groups with proper rights.

It is not all of them.
Could it be how it accesses the repository where the package are built and stored.
DP is on the local server, but the location of the packages are on the SAN.

Closing this question.

It was a permission issue, but it was strange one.
It stopped updating on 2/4/2014 and I recalled attempting to apply new ACL to the Source repository, but I cancelled it mid-stream.  That might have broke ACL on some of the folders, but not all.  That is why I was it was able to update most of the packages.

I removed the one account that I attempted to add around 2/4/2014  and allow it to completely propagate through all the sub-dir
Now all is updating.  :)

Strange one, but solved.

Interesting...I had something similar with a file permissions GPO not working.  Turned out there was a file with a NULL ACL or basically no permissions on it and GPO used SECEDIT to do file permissions in the background and I guess SECEDIT chokes on files with absolutely no file permissions.
