We are having problems adding files to distribution packages when running the Management Console on a device that is not the Core Server. These issues do not occur when the Management Console is run from the core server.
The issue occurs when we try to to add files to a distribution package. It hangs for a minute or two and then I receive "the operation has timed out" error popup. I am using http Web path and it has worked in the past from a remote management console.
As an example of what I'm doing, Using FQDN (http://asdf.MyCompany.com/packages) doesn't work and I get the time out, however if I shorten it to http://asdf/packages then it does work. In order for distribution to work on our devices, the FQDN must be used here. I have verified that I can access the full path in a web browser (IE) on those servers, but it doesn't seem like the management console can browse to it using FQDN.
Also, to reiterate, when on the core server using FQDN works fine.
If anyone has seen this and has a suggestion I would appreciate it.
