Problem accessing the Cap on Secondary site.

Problem accessing the Cap on Secondary site.

Problem accessing the Cap on Secondary site.

I am hoping someone can help me with this other problem.
  I recently change one of our servers from bdc to a dc. This machine use to be a secondary site server. I re-install sms on it and now I am having problems with client installing. When I check the logs they are getting the error message "Caplist on server cannot be accessed" I have tried just about everything from making sure the cap is there to giving everyone full control of the directory. The only thing I have not done is to move the cap to another server something I do not want to do. Can anyone help me please? Thanks

RE: Problem accessing the Cap on Secondary site.

Not too sure about this. One time I had a similar problem where one of my CAPs got messed up.  So I went into my SMS site and removed the role of Client Access Point from this particular server.  Then, I waited about 5-10 minutes and saw that the CAP software and share was gone.  Through my SMS site server, I re-enabled the server as a CAP.  I then waited a short period of time and then saw the share and directory structure re-appear.  There are no issue when doing this...This solved my CAP problem.

RE: Problem accessing the Cap on Secondary site.

Thanks again Jpoandi. You seem like the only person to help. Anyway I have done that and it did not work. I did some research and found out that sometimes when you re-install a site the account that it use to connect to the CAP get messed up. Mainly the smsclient_xxx. The password for it is incorrect and so the account gets locked out. This is true cause I have two secondary site that were doing the same thing. I manually tried to install the client and then look the account in the domain and each time it got locked out. I created two similar accounts and that fixed it for one of the sites but I am still having problems with the other one. I think I might be able to find out exactly what's going on with this one a fix it. I will publish the result. Thanks again.
