Installing windows deployment services (WDS) fails

Hello Everyone,

I am having very frustating problem when trying to install WDS on a 2003 SP2 member server.  I have successfully installed WDS on a server in central office and had absolutely no problems.  So you would think that the second one would be a peice of cake.

 I have installed the WDS service on a 2003 SP2 member server and it fails when I try to configure the server for the first time with errors in the application event log see below:


Event Type: Error
Event Source: WDSServer
Event Category: WDSServer
Event ID: 513
Date:  12/14/2007
Time:  4:29:30 PM
User:  N/A
Computer: LABKUP02
An error occurred while trying to initialize provider BINLSVC from C:\WINDOWS\system32\binlsvc.dll. Windows Deployment Services server will be shutdown. Error Information: 0xC1050702

 And in the system event log:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7024
Date:  12/14/2007
Time:  10:50:39 AM
User:  N/A
Computer: LABKUP02
The Windows Deployment Services (WDS) Server service terminated with service-specific error 3238332162 (0xC1050702).

 I have found several other threads and they all say to check domain comunication problems such as DNS and run netdiag and all come up clean.  Another option was to start the services with a domain account that has authority to make changes in AD.  I have tried all of these to no avail.  Any help would be appreciated.

I ended up solving this myself.  The solution was to reinstall SP2, then re-installing the serive.
