SCCM Keeps Processing Package

Occasionally, SCCM may seem to get stuck processing a package.  When viewing Status Messages, you’ll see :

SMS Distribution Manager successfully processed package “PRIN Windows 7 SP1 12.3″ (package ID = PRI00263).
SMS Distribution Manager is beginning to process package “PRIN Windows 7 SP1 12.3″ (package ID = PRI00263).
SMS Distribution Manager successfully processed package “PRIN Windows 7 SP1 12.3″ (package ID = PRI00263).
SMS Distribution Manager is beginning to process package “PRIN Windows 7 SP1 12.3″ (package ID = PRI00263).
SMS Distribution Manager successfully processed package “PRIN Windows 7 SP1 12.3″ (package ID = PRI00263).
SMS Distribution Manager is beginning to process package “PRIN Windows 7 SP1 12.3″ (package ID = PRI00263).

This will keep going for sometime with no clear progress on distribution.  For example, if you’re trying to send a package to SEC-DP-SERVER and the package continues to be processed as above, then when you look at distmgr.log, you may see something like this:

Used 0 out of 3 allowed processing threads.
