preloadpkgonsite generates failed to get specified package in database errors

ran into this today while trying to bring back a new site server with all the current packages.

C:\SMSPKG>preloadpkgonsite.exe pkg00001
****** Preload Package On Site ******
Failed to get the specified package pkg00001 in the database. Please check if you have instance rights to that package.

 

smells conspicuously like a permission problem even though i’m getting my rights through a global group assigned to this server.  i tried it again, this time with local system permissions.  much better.

D:\SMSPKG>PreloadPkgOnSite.exe pkg00001
****** Preload Package On Site ******
Forward package status for pkg pkg00001 to site PKG
****** Successfully set the Compressed Package Path on this site ******
****** Successfully forwarded the information up the hierarchy ******

 

if you’re looking for how to execute preloadpkgonsite.exe, you can refer to this earlier post.
