Query about replicating packages from Site Server to Branch Distribution Points
Hi Guys,I have a few questions:1. How can I track replicating packages to Branch Distribution Points?2. What can I do if the package status keeps showing Install Pending and there is no sign of any new package created on BDP it was added to.ThanksTom

Much appreciated Gentlemen. My knowlege has expanded but unfortunately my problem is still not resolved.After adding a package to a BDP suprisingly the ConfigMgr does not pick the BDP partition where there is most free space on. It also seems to be ignoring the existence of the file No_SMS_on_Drive.sms.What I'm concern is that it event takes the system partition which, in our case, is relativelly small (4-8GB).I don't whether it has anything to do with the fact that we are using BDP instead of standard DPs for all site offices.The only thing I managed to do is to set the option for some BDPs to Use specific partitions.And it works fine for all the BDPs where there is only two partitions (system and data) but it is not very efficient for servers where we have plenty of space on more that one partition.I don't know also what to do with packages that were already copied to C: to a share SMSPKGC$.Can I just move them to other shares or do I have to take some other steps before.I must admit that we have recently migrated to SCCM and before I was only responsible for creating Packages and Advertisements. Now I look after all sites and communications with the site sever.If my other queries should be moved to a different thread please let me know.I have also another query about efficient driver management, but it probably doesn't go with this thread.
