Back to ConfigMgr main menu
I was working on a new customer deployment of ConfigMgr 2012 - single primary site server with Management Point and Distribution Point selected during the installation.
Everything looked normal and all component status were green. However I had an issue with software distribution. When I looked at the status of the deployment I saw that the deployment was "waiting for content".
That would suggest a problem with the DP. I looked at the properties and found this error.
It looks like the self-signed certificate for the DP was not created during the installation. I tried to apply the settings but got this error.
I couldn't quite figure this out. I restarted the server and logged in again. This time I noticed that icons that I had placed on the desktop had disappeared. I did a little digging and found that I had been logged on using a temporary profile - I was using an account provided by the customer.
When creating certificates full access to save to your profile is required. Once I realized the problem I was able to solve the user profile issue. The next time I logged on to the server I was able to create the certificate.
