SCCM 2012 – Boundary groups are REQUIRED in order for clients to locate DPs

April 13, 2012

If you have setup your new SCCM 2012 (test)environment, you might run into issues with clients not being able to locate required content on Distribution Points, for instance during an OSD TS.
When going into the smstslog logfile on the client, you will then see that no local DPs can be found. ( 0x80040103, Could not access package content in the DP )
This happens when you have defined boundaries, but have not yet created a Boundary Group, and have added the boundaries to this Boundary Group.
Yes, this is a new feature compared to SCCM 2007, where defining boundaries was enough for clients in a site to locate content.
“Each boundary must be a member of a boundary group before a device on that boundary can identify an assigned site, or a content server such as a distribution point.”
