Microsoft: Troubleshooting SCCM Database Replication Service (DRS)


Problem: SCCM Database Replication Service is not working

Solution: Service Broker had been disabled on MSDB, causing SCCM DRM to fail

As a SQL Server engineer, I’ve supported customer environments running SCCM for several years now and have helped to troubleshoot DRS issues in the past, but it is certainly not something I do on a regular basis. We were able to resolve it pretty quickly, but this was a new issue (to me) and one that wasn’t easily discoverable through internet searching by the customer.
