Installation instructions

  1. Confirm there is not currently an installation of the MCC component in progress. This is done by checking for status message 9522, generated by the SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER component. The 9522 message indicates that installation is no longer being retried.

  2. Copy the new version of DoincInstall.exe, version, to the {SMSInstallDir}\bin\x64 folder on all site servers, including the Central Administration Site (CAS) if present, and any passive sites.

  3. Uncheck the Enable this distribution point to be used as Microsoft Connected Cache server option in the affected distribution point’s properties.

  4. Wait for the uninstall of MCC to complete on the distribution point. This can be confirmed by looking for a 9152 success status message, combined with the following entry in distmgr.log.

    Finished waiting for DoincInstall. InvocationState: UninstallCompleted. InvocationExitCode: 0. InvocationMessage:.
  5. Recheck the Enable this distribution point to be used as Microsoft Connected Cache server option for the affected distribution point.


    For sites with a large number of distribution points, replace steps 3 - 5 above with the following.

    • Create an empty file named resetdps.trn and place it in the {SMSInstallDir}\inboxes\ folder. This will reinstall all distribution points for that site using the latest version of DoincInstall.exe copied in step 2. above.


To apply this hotfix, you must be using Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager, versions 2103 through versions 2207.
