- You migrate a package from Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 to Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.
- You enable sharing for Distribution Points (DP) that host content for the migrated package in 2012 Configuration Manager.
- You change the source of the migrated application package in 2012 Configuration Manager.
In this scenario, when you update the shared Distribution Points, multiple error messages that resemble the following are logged in the Distmgr.log file:
CWmi::Connect() failed to connect to \\MYSERVER.com\root\CIMv2. Error = 0x800706BA
CWmi::GetObject(): IWbemServices is NULL - 0x8004101d
Shared distribution points are Configuration Manager 2007 distribution points that can be used by System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Clients during the migration period. A Distribution Point can be shared only when the Configuration Manager 2007 hierarchy that contains the Distribution Point remains the active source hierarchy. Also, distribution point sharing must be enabled for the source site that contains the Distribution Point. Sharing ends for Distribution Points when you complete migration from the Configuration Manager 2007 hierarchy.
