Event ID 14 — Peer List
Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2
BITS automatically discovers new peers when a job requests content from a peer and there are not enough peers in the client's peer list. Peers must be in the same subnet and domain as the client and be enabled to serve content to peers.
|Product:||Windows Operating System|
|Message:||BITS was not able to listen for peer-server announcements. The error code was %1. BITS jobs on this machine will not be able to use peer-caching. To fix this problem, try stopping the BITS service and restarting it.|
