Slow Downloads from wrong DP

Patrick Mor 46 Reputation points

Hi all, please I need some help.

There is a location in my company that is very slow when downloading any packages via Software Center.

That location has a local DP, but I think it's possible that some of the computers there are getting packets from the wrong DP.

I validated my Boundaries and Boundary Groups, but since there are so many IP ranges I wanted to make sure I didn't have something wrong.

On the computer with the SCCM Client installed in this location, is there any log that I can see the download of the packages started and which DP is sending these packages?

Thank you,

    You can check cas, locationservices and datatransferservice logs to gather details on the DP and transfer jobs.

    Is there a LOG to see errors or issues with Software Center also?

    Hi @Patrick Mor ,

    1, SCClient_domain@Tablet _1.log and SCClient_domain@Tablet _2.log that contain information related to software center.

    SCClient_domain@Tablet _1.log: Records the activity in Software Center for the specified user on the client computer.
    SCClient_domain@Tablet _2.log: Records the historical activity in Software Center for the specified user on the client computer.
    The location is C:\Windows\CCM\Logs\ on client.
