Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You configure a Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Service Pack 1 (SP1) primary site and a System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1 secondary site.
  • You create a package on the primary site.
  • You distribute the package to the distribution point of the secondary site.
  • You validate the package on the distribution point of the secondary site after the content status reads Success.
  • You verify that the content status reads Success after the validation is completed.
  • You right-click the package and then select Update distribution point.

In this scenario, the content status is stuck in In progress - Waiting for Content status instead of Success status.
