Our SCCM 2007 agents use the default size of 5120 for the Temporary Program Download Folder. While testing a 3 GB package, one computer reported:

"the space allocated for program downloads is insufficient to download this program"...

I checked the ccm\cache folder and it only contained one very small package (Kbytes).

I used the Configuation Manager Control Panel - Advanced - Delete Files... button and tried to start the package again from Run Advertised Program and was successful.

Has anyone seen this type of behavior before? Is this some form of cache corruption? WMI? So far I've only seen this on the one computer. It runs fine on two others (Win 7 & Win XP).

Do not download this package and run it directly from server.

Like Pyush said, do you really want to sacrifice 6GB (download + install) on the target machines for this package? Just run from source and warn the users not to disconnect from the network during install.

Running from Distibution point is the best option.

If you want to Download you can increase the sccm cache size by using below VB script.

On Error Resume Next
Dim nValueToSet  
Dim oUIResource  
Set oUIResource = CreateObject("UIResource.UIResourceMgr")  
Set CacheSize = oUIResource.GetCacheInfo  
newCahceSize = 10000  
if CacheSize.TotalSize <= newCahceSize then  
  CacheSize.TotalSize = newCahceSize  
end if 

Mention the desired size in newCahceSize.
