When deploying the Distribution Point role to a Windows Server 2012 computer, you get the following error:

Error 0x800706BA: Failed to install Distribution Point

Error 0x800706BA happens when the server that you are trying to make a distribution point cannot be connected to via WMI or doesn’t have a namespace set up. To create a namespace and install a distribution point on a 2012 server that has reported error 0x800706BA:

  1. Copy C:\Program Files\Microsoft Configuration Manager\bin\X64\smsdpprov.mof to the server you wish to make a distribution point
  2. Run this command on the would-be distribution point: mofcomp.exe smsdpprov.mof
  3. Re-run the command to install the distribution point. It may fail, but give it some time and it will eventually install the distribution point
