Clients cannot download peer cache content in Configuration Manager version 1706

Applies to: System Center Configuration Manager


After you upgrade to Configuration Manager, version 1706, clients cannot download content from peer cache sources. An error that resembles the following is recorded in the Contenttransfermanager.log file:

CContentTokenMgr::EncryptToken - Failed Base64Decode cert context


This issue occurs when the client uses the peer source’s NetBIOS name instead of its fully qualified domain name (FQDN) to get additional information about the connection.
