When you try to distribute a driver package to a package share on a pull-distribution point in System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager, the driver package is not distributed and error messages that resemble the following are logged in the Smsdpprov.log file:

CreateFolder failed; 0x8007007b
CContentDefinition::ExpandContentDefinitionItems failed; 0x8007007b
CContentDefinition::Expand failed; 0x8007007b

Note that this problem occurs even though you can distribute the driver package to a regular distribution point.

For all the details regarding why this happens and download instructions for a hotfix that addresses the issue, please see the following:
