We have failed to image worksations in one of our sccm 2007 R2 sites. The initial troubleshooting showed that the workstation has failed at the stage of join to domain although the OS has been installed successfully. I noticed below errors from locationservice.log.
Assigning to site 'S01'
LSVerifySiteVersion : Verifying Site Version for <S01>
Failed to resolve 'SMS_SLP' to IP address from WINS
LSGetSLP : Failed to resolve SLP from WINS, is it published
LSGetSiteVersionFromSLP : Unable to get the list of SLPs
LSVerifySiteVersion: Failed to get Site Version from AD and SLP
It seemed that the workstation failed to resolve name of SLP.
It was working fine back to few weeks ago and there were no major changes in our environment as far as I know.
I have googled the error and most of the results are talking about the scenario of using WINS which is not our case. We are not using WINS in our environment.
In our SCCM environment, the server locator point has been published to our Active Directory Domain Services, hence the client should automatically find a server locator point through Active Directory .
I don't know what has made the workstation tried to use WINS to locate SLP.
Just wondering if anyone could shed some light on it.
