Failed to set proxy to bits job for url 'https:// site.configmgr.com:443/SMS_DP_SMSPKG$/{pkg_id}'. Error 0x87d00215

Note This fix applies only to task sequences that are not yet migrated. Task sequences that were migrated before you applied CU4 should be deleted and then migrated again.

  3. Select the boot image that you want to update.
  4. Right-click and then select the Update Distribution Points action.
