SCCM 2012 – Content distribution to Distribution Points – “Error during connection to SMS_DP$” and “0x80041013”.

Today one of mine colleagues from Helpdesk, asked me why one package hasn’t been distributed correctly to some Distribution Points. The PkgXferMgr.log said to me that:

There is no existing connection, Win32 error = 67 SMS_PACKAGE_TRANSFER_MANAGER 2013-06-28 02:37:49 9192 (0x23E8)

I was astonished because I haven’t changed anything, as I logged on DPJAS server it appared that one of my administrator colleague has moved the SMS_DP$ share. Not only moved but moved and forgot to share it again, so it wasn’t visible on the network. I turned sharing again, gave proper permissions, and one more time looked in log after redistributing content.

The message I have recived was:

After about 30 minutes of trying that operation to run on other DPs, I moved that folder to D drive where it was – my colleague moved it to the F drive.

Another redistribution operation, and guess what 🙂 I t was the drive fault! Still do not how could it be as long as the share was visible properly :/
