The total number of files that are in the Despooler’s despoolr.box\receive inbox on the site server has exceeded the standard operational threshold.
This folder temporarily stores data that is received from a child Configuration Manager site or parent Configuration Manager site. Files (.pkg and .rpl) are processed and moved as soon as the instruction file is received.
This condition increases unless it is resolved. If the file count continues beyond the threshold, replicated information is not reflected in the Configuration Manager site database in a timely manner, and Configuration Manager objects and reports might not accurately represent the state of the parent site and this site's child sites.
The total number of files can exceed the threshold because:
The SMS_Executive service is stopped or is not responding on the site server.
The Despooler component has stopped.
Despooler could be processing other received jobs.
The site server has insufficient resources, such as CPU, memory, or disk space.
The Configuration Manager site server has no more disk space.
Instruction files have not been received.
