Great post by fellow MVP Greg Ramsey. That guy comes up with some awesome stuff
ConfigMgr 2012 has a feature that allows you to validate content of a distribution point on a schedule, which works great for normal business. However, if you encounter an issue on a package and need to validate content immediately for each DP, it does require a bit of effort, as you have to go to the object in question, view the properties, then on the Content Locations tab, select a DP and click “Validate” – rinse and repeat–you must do this for each DP to validate content, as described in the documentation. This post will describe how to enable a right-click option on any content in the Monitoring tab of the admin console.
