My SCCM hierarchy has three Distribution Points and I am adding a fourth.

The new Distribution Point is added successfully, and when I check Content Status I see that all of my content items are now properly targeting all four Distribution Points, with the exception of one package:

  • Microsoft Corporation Configuration Manager Client Piloting Upgrade Package

This package still only targets the original three.

When browsing through the Packages list (via Software Library | Packages) this Package is not visible.

Using PowerShell, Get-CMPackage with the ID of this package returns nothing. Likewise Get-CMPackage | ft PackageId doesn't list the package ID (it does list my other packages correctly).

How do I amend this package to target the new fourth Distribution Point?

  • Is there any info referring to it in distmgr.log or despool.log?

  • @Crimsonfox - no, not in either. Confirming also that I've searched for the package by ID, not by name, and that my other packages are present, likewise by ID, not name. Aug 4 at 15:30
  • Does it show in the Content Library Explorer?

  • @Crimsonfox - yes on the 3 previously-existing distribution points, no on the new one. Aug 5 at 9:58
  • Have you tried this: vansurksum.com/2012/11/25/… but renaming ccmsetup in the the PilotingUpgrade folder too?

In the absence of a documented solution from Microsoft outlining the procedure for redistributing this package, and explaining what it is and why it appears the way it does, I have decommissioned the new Distribution Point and will engage Microsoft Support for the next steps.
