SYMPTOMS

Distribution Manager may not delete the compressed copy of a package that a child primary site receives from its parent, when the package is deleted from the Systems Management Server Administrator console at the parent site.

The Distribution Manager log file (Distmgr.log) may indicate that the package files were deleted when in fact they were not, as shown in the following example:

~Starting package processing thread,thread ID = 129  $$<SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER>
<Fri Oct 15 17:09:46.507 1999 Pacific Daylight Time><thread=225 (0xE1)>
...
Start deleting the package 61000012...  $$<SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER><Fri Oct 15 17:09:46.677 1999 Pacific Daylight Time><thread=297 
(0x129)>
~Successfully deleted the package 61000012  $$<SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER><Fri Oct 15 17:09:46.677 1999
