The Package Specified For This Advertisement Contains Source Files But No Distribution Points Are Specified For The Package

After creating a package in SCCM, you can get this error:

The package specified for this advertisement contains source files but no distribution points are specified for the package

This is because you didn’t specify any distribution points when creating the package. To fix this:

  1. In SCCM, navigate to the package you created (Site Database -> Computer Management -> Software Distribution -> Packages)
  2. Expand the package and right click on Distribution Points
  3. Click New Distribution Points
  4. Click Next, select some distribution points that are geographically closest to the PCs that you will be deploying your package to, click Next then Close

This will add a distribution point from which to deliver the advertisements source files and fix the package specified for this advertisement contains source files but no distribution points warning message.
