0
Creating my DP and I have all of the IIS setting[I think] completed including WMI 6 items but I am still getting "Failed to create virtual directory". I have port 8,135,445 tcp and udp 135 open. BITS have been installed and server updated and rebooted. Where have I missed something?
 
recreated DP and got failed to remote distribution point....

      the domain computer account of your primary site server, needs to be able to get to the admin shares of the target server.
      There's I think a specific local group you add the computer account to, but you can also cheat and just add the domain\Primarysite$ to the local Administrators group on the Server that is to be the DP.
      If you reply with "but I already did all that" -- did you reboot the DP server after you did that?  those permissions won't be there until a reboot happens.

        Didn't do that but I finally got the correct port and other items that were not in documentation[trail & error].
         
        But now I am stuck on a "Distribution Manager is waiting for package ***000003 content to prestage on the distribution point. You must manually prestage  the package on the distribution point before the content will be available."

          I googled that phrase (I wasn't familiar with this issue), "You must manually prestage  the package on the distribution point before the content will be available", and google-fu led me to this.  http://visualplanet.org/blog/?p=141  See if that workaround works for you.

              Hi,
              I have an intermittent issue on some DPs. Also checked dstmgr.log and found....
              Error:
              Distribution Manager failed to connect to the distribution point ["Display=\\server.x\"]MSWNET:["SMS_SITE=Y"]\\server.x\. Check your network and firewall settings.
               
              "error = 0x800706ba Failed to find a valid drive on the distribution point"
               
              The following things are in place....
              1. Enable Windows Authentication in IIS
              2. Installed IIS 6 WMI Compatibility
              3. TCP port 80, 135, 445 are open
               
              Can any one help me out ?
               
              Rgds, Irshad
