When you advertise a program to a collection, some clients in your site may not report a status message stating whether the program was run successfully even though each client ran the program successfully and each component reported a status message (.svf file).

Another symptom is the loss of any file encapsulated in a Replication Manager (.rpl) file.
Replication Manager discards some .rpl files when the target component is not active. For example, status summaries received by a site in which the summarizers are disabled are deleted. This behavior is recorded in the Replication Manager log file (Replmgr.log) by the following entry:
Component name is not active, throw away replication file.
Each deleted file is kept in a list and the list is not properly cleared. When Replication Manager deletes the files stored in the list, any new file created with a name already stored in the list can then be deleted.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Systems Management Server version 2.0. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
