Today I saw a strange thing in SCCM 2012 R2 CU3. Some packages stuck in Distribute Content Status.
Shown in the Console of the CAS.
At the Primary Site the content status shows the green traffic light and if you hit the details of the package
the status was yellow, and it says in progress. What the hell!?
Ok. I search in the properties of the package if anything is wrong configured,
but I discover no issues in the settings.
Oh wait! What’s that!
In the properties dialog in the Content Location pane, there is a button named “Validate”, but it is disabled.
I select my DP which has the problem showing the correct status, and “TA DA” the “Validate”-Button
is now active. I hit the “Validate”-Button and confirm the two following dialogs with ok,
and a minute later all was fine.
The content status on the primary Site and on the CAS was shown a green filled disc.
That’s all!? – That’s all.
