Additionally, you will receive messages that resemble the following in the Distmgr.log file:
If you receive this message repeatedly, you can reduce the overall time that is required to complete the process by increasing the number of processing threads.
"DP upgrade thread limit” is a Site Control File property that is represented as "DPUpgradeThreadLimit" in WMI. By default, this property is not present. However, when you add this property, you can override the predefined limit of five threads.
To increase the default limit, create DPUpgradeThreadLimit as an embedded property of the SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER component. This is an instance of the SMS_SCI_Component class in the site namespace.
To make sure that the changes take effect, restart the SMS_Executive service on the site server after you change this property .
Note Increasing the thread limit beyond the default will put additional load on the site server. Careful planning and testing should be completed to prevent the introduction of performance bottlenecks on the site server during the upgrade process. A maximum of fifty threads should be sufficient for most environments.
