SCCM unable to update Distribution Point

Hello

I have 9 distribution points in our SCCM environment that are not receiving any packages.

The error message is a permissions one according to the logs, but I can't work out why.

When I created the DP the folders have been created on the server, and some files have been moved across, but when the actual packages are sent I get error messages.

I've added extra permissions on all the SCCM folders on the DP's, that it created itself, but it still hasn't resolved the problem.

Please see screenshots for error messages.  It is the same error on 9 DP's, but the remaining 40 are fine.

Thanks

Your post says you checked and modified permissions on the DP's. The first suggested "Possible cause" in your screenshot says that the site server doesn't have appropriate permissions to the SOURCE directory.  Where are the source files for packages stored, and what are the permissions on that share?

It might also help if you post the pkgxfermgr.log referred to in the text of your screenshot.

Please read the  pkgxfermgr.log (or attach it to the post so that we can read it).
You will get the same Errormessage when your DP runs out of disk space, but because 9 DP's are affected i think Steve Whitcher is right with his guess that the source directory permissions are corrupted.

did you add the computer name into the permissions?  i.e. computer$

It's odd because I don't have the problem with other DP's, and they were all setup in the same way.  I have also created additional packages recently, and they have all gone out fine to all DP's other than these 9

Have these DP's ever worked since they were set up?

Based on the info in the log file, I've found a few discussions from others who had the same error, and it looks like the issue came down to the configuration of the server and installation of pre-reqs, particularly the windows feature "Remote Differential Compression."  Double check that RDC and the other pre-reqs are installed on the affected servers:

Sorry, my mistake, it was due to RDC!

Once i reinstalled RDC everything worked perfectly.

Thanks very much for the help
