Content Library Cleanup Tool
At the moment the Content Library Cleanup Tool shipped in SCCM 1610 TP, when it find some errors or is not able to cleanup some of the orphaned files/information in Content Lib crashes or stop the process.
In big environments with a large number of PullDP's it's important that we can automate the tool to perform an automated clenaup of the distribution Points and Pull Distrbution Points.
We are working with a customer that as a large number of PullDP's so we would like to suggest for future versions of the tool the following changes:
- The possibility of the tool to run with pending/running jobs
- The possibility to create a log file during the clenaup process to, if an error is found, the tool logs the error and continue the process without crashing or stop. This could also be usefull for the pending/running jobs. Even if we have packages with pending/running jobs and if the clenaup cannot be done, it could log that information and continue without stopping or crashing.
Basically the possibility to handle the errors in a better way.
Production version of this tool released today in 1702.
I suspect this isn't likely to be re-opened so I created a new UV item here: https://configurationmanager.uservoice.com/forums/300492-ideas/suggestions/33341281-improve-and-automate-the-content-cleanup-tool
this tool still need the improvement mentioned, even in 1706, this shouldn't be closed.
it should be able to show all the problematic packages, not stop at the first one
and improve automation
Tool should be support cleanup on the site Server...

This idea should not be closed yet as almost none of the suggestions have been released.
We are running 1702 and the tool is constantly stopping due to a single error. We fix that error and rerun the cleanup tool only to find another error.
Also, is there a way to find these all of these errors in the console, without having to find them one at a time by running to cleanup tool or manually inspecting every package?
I can confirm the situation described above is "alive" in our environment.
