So I had to delete a package off a distribution point and redistribute yesterday and ran into an issue where it would not distribute. I continued to read my logs and noticed that the distmgr.log continually retried the package but never actually distributed it. It just kept saying no action specified for package. Well after a ton of research I came across a blog post detailing how resolve that.
First check your action and updatemask
SELECT * FROM PkgServers where NALPath = '["Display=\\\"]MSWNET:["SMS_SITE="]\\\' and PkgID = ''
This particular distribution point had an update mask and action totally different than any of the other servers.
I then deleted that record.
DELETE FROM PkgServers where NALPath = '["Display=\\SEA-DP-SERVER\"]MSWNET:["SMS_SITE=SEA"]\\SEA-DP-SERVER\' and PkgID = SEA0008D'
Once I did that I was able to finally redistribute the content.
Thanks a bunch to Daniel Eyer’s blog.
