The right pane should now give you a list of all the SCCM components, note the SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER and the error count:
Now right click the component with errors and select “Show Messages -> All”
A message status viewer will now popup showing some detailed information about the error:
Note that the message ID of the error reported by the management pack is listed here. This should give you some in-depth information about the error.
