These days I’m working on package replication, One of our SCCM Primary site has 55+ PDP’s. This time, because of some reasons 2 of them went down.Actually both are new protected distribution point. “Number of retry settings was set to ‘100’ and distribution manager was only retrying package replication only on 2 problem PDp’s. As count of pending packages was more on the new PD’s and size of the some packages was huge, it was taking too long time to replicate, rather I would say package replication was stuck.
We decided to reduce the “Number of retry Count “ to 10 for the time being. Initially I thought if we would change the retry settings to ‘10’ then package replication will be stopped for the package which retry count is already greater than ‘10’ However, this is not true. Truth is “Number of retry Count “ will set to ‘10’ and distribution manager will start counting “retry count” from ‘0’.
distmgr.log entry when retry settings set to ‘100’
Failed to process the package <package Id1> after 17 retries, will retry 83 more times
Failed to process the package <package Id2> after 19 retries, will retry 81 more times
distmgr.log entry when retry settings set to ‘10’
Failed to process the package <package Id1> after 0 retries, will retry 10 more times
Failed to process the package <package Id2> after 0 retries, will retry 10 more times
