SCCM 2012 Distribution Point Prerequisites – Windows Server 2003

Below is the prerequisites requirement for setting up a SCCM 2012 DP.

I would like to highlight the Remote Differential Compression prerequisites on Windows Server 2003. Remote Differential Compression is not available to be configured in the Add/Remove Windows Components like any others prerequisites. If you have missed out this prerequisite, you will not able to perform any content distribution, the operation will fail!!! Although you have checked to install IIS automatically during the DP installation, it just simply won’t install because that only available on Windows Server 2008 and above.

You can manually install the Remote Differential Compression prerequisite. It is located in the client folder, \\SCCM12\SMS_PS1\Client\i386. Look for the installer named “msrdcoob.exe”. Run the installer manually in the Windows Server 2003 and you should be able to distribute content to the DP now.
