About the Common SMS Package Share on Distribution Points

Change from SMS 1.2    SMS 2.0 creates SMSPKGx$ shares instead of SMS_SHRx shares on distribution points.

If you choose to use the common SMS package share on distribution points (in the Data Access tab of the Package Properties dialog box), SMS uses the SMSPKGx$ share on the drive on the distribution point with the most free disk space, where x is the drive letter. If that share does not already exist, SMS creates it.

Caution    Do not place any files directly on the SMSPKGx$ share. This share should only be used by SMS. If you want to share files on a server that is performing the distribution point role, you must use a separate share.
