SYMPTOMS

You try to upgrade a shared Distribution Point to a Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Distribution Point. If the upgrade of the Distribution Point fails, the status on the Shared Distribution Points tab is displayed as follows:
Failed to upgrade distribution point.
You might expect the status on the Shared Distribution Points tab to be displayed as follows:
Failed to convert content.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

MORE INFORMATION

You can use the Configuration Manager console to upgrade Configuration Manager 2007 Distribution Points that you have shared with System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.

When you upgrade a shared Distribution Point, the Distribution Point is uninstalled from the Configuration Manager 2007 site. Then, the Distribution Point is installed as a System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Distribution Point that is attached to a primary or secondary site that you specify.

The upgrade process copies the migrated content that is stored on the Distribution Point and converts this copy to the System Center 2012 Configuration Manager single instance content store.
