How to solve "Cannot set the current Drizzle Role status for the DP" - ConfigMgr 2012 DP

Hey guys, Here i come with another issue i ran into when i was trying to setup a Remote DP in a Configmgr 2012 Hierarchy. It starte like this, i had to place a remote DP in one of the branch location in the customer environment. I initiated the DP installation through DP configuration wizard in sccm 2012 console.
But as always, it did not go through. I was not able to distribute any packages to that DP. when i just gone through the distmgr.log i found the below snippet of error messages. and this is the first tiem i'm gettign this error message.

I ran into google with this message, all blogs and technet websites pointed me to troubleshoot IIS. But in that server IIS was working exceptionally well and i couldnt find any uissues with that. and it drived me crazy.

I tried to reinstall the DP role on that server several time and all my efforts went in vain. While i was going through the virtual directories of default website i found that the physical path updated on the virtual directory SMS_DP_SMSPKG$ refered to a folder in a drive where the drive letter doesn't even exist. i change the physical path of that virtual directory and started the installation again. Voila the DP is up and running again.






to summarize, Make sure the virtual directories SMS_DP_SMSPKG$ and SMS_DP_SMSSIG$ exists and the physical path of those virtual directories are referring to a valid drive and path.

Hope this helps.!!
