SCCM: Package 00004 distribution failed
February 16, 2018
Posted by on
I installed a DP in SCCM 1702 infrastructure. Packages <site code>00003 and 00004 failed to be distributed.
00003 is easy, it is SCCM Client PAckage and it can be re-distributed from SCCM console.
00004 is trickier – it is invisible in the console.
I found two solutions on the Internet:
1: Redistribute a certain package to DP using PowerShell: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/11df0f63-d146-434d-91f3-c4e826fee92c/redistribute-configuration-manager-client-upgrade-package-xxx00003?forum=configmanagermigration
script by MichaelW506
$SiteCode = "XXX"
$PackageID = "XXX00003"
$distpoints = Get-WmiObject -Namespace "root\SMS\Site_$($SiteCode)" -Query "Select * From SMS_DistributionPoint WHERE PackageID='$PackageID'"
foreach ($dp in $distpoints)
$dp.RefreshNow = $true
2. a method suggested by Hau
1. Open an empty notepad and save it as client.acu
2. Copy the client.acu to the inboxes\hman.box folder at the top-level site
3. Monitor the hman.log to check whether the Client Upgrade package gets updated
