Recently I started to recieve lots of errors with Message ID: 2302 for the SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER component after validating a package. The only way to stop this error was to delete the package from the ditribution point and then redistribute it agin.
If I after that tried to validate the package once again, the error came back..
This happens to all my packages if I select "validate package".

After some help from Microsoft, the resolution to this problem was to move a FILE named "Program" (without any file extension) that was located in the root of my E:\ drive to another destination.


Task Sequence problem after SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012 SP1 migration

Ran into some problem after I had migrated a SCCM 2007 site to SCCM 2012 SP1

When running the Task Sequence I got the following errors in SMSTS.LOG

Empty location for package: _SMSTSP01000F1 ApplyOperatingSystem

Installation of image 1 in package P01000F1 failed to complete..
The system cannot find the file specified. (Error: 80070002; Source: Windows) ApplyOperatingSystem

The resolution was to change the deployment properties on the Task Sequence from "Access content directly from a distribution Point" to "Download content locally".

I Believe that changing the operating system package properties under Data Access to "Copy the content in this package to a package share on distribution Points" would have been the other solution to this problem.
