fix

In System Center Configuration Manager 2007, when you run the Discover Management Controllers Task on AMT Enabled Devices you may find that a .rpl file gets created and does not process out on Secondary site servers. Errors like the following occur:

Skip replication file 4u4h5uam.RPL as the inbox SMS_AMT_PROXY_WOL doesn't exist or hasn't yet been created. Will try later. SMS_REPLICATION_MANAGER 09/17/2009 1:12:15 PM 3260 (0x0CBC)

Skip replication file krhyocib.RPL as the inbox SMS_AMT_PROXY_OM doesn't exist or hasn't yet been created. Will try later. SMS_REPLICATION_MANAGER 09/17/2009 1:12:15 PM 3260 (0x0CBC)

Skip replication file ghmdgy2w.RPL as the inbox SMS_AMT_PROXY_DISC doesn't exist or hasn't yet been created. Will try later. SMS_REPLICATION_MANAGER 09/17/2009 1:12:15 PM 3260 (0x0CBC)

These errors occur because SCCM Secondary sites do not have the needed inboxes created by default. They need to be created manually to resolve the errors and backlogs.

To resolve this issue you must manually add the missing inbox paths to the secondaries via registry entries.

Note: The Registry settings below are for a 64 bit OS, modify as appropriate.

The problem is missing inbox mappings in the registry. Entering the following will correct the problem. The trailing 00 in the "Inbox Definitions" key names must be substituted with a number that will be valid on the target machine. To determine what to place here, you must determine the maximum number already present under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SMS\Inbox Source\Inbox Definitions". You must also substitute the correct UNC paths, as well as the local paths under mpfdm\inboxes.

Verify the inboxes are now defined and created correctly. The errors in MPFDM.log should cease and the .RPL files should process.
