Consider the following scenario:
Log Name: System/ Application
When the computer starts, BINLSVC queries for the information that is contained in the Service Control Point (SCP), this operation is performed before the creation of the SCP, and then BINLSVC logs an error message in the Application log or the System log. This error message states that the server's SCP is missing. This is expected behavior on new WDS servers and in other instances where the SCP has not yet been created for the server. In this case, you can safely ignore the error that is logged in the Application log or the System log.
Although the 1803 event is logged, there is no real harm to the system in this scenario. This is because WDS queries for the SCP before the creation of the SCP. For more information about WDS and the SCP, see the Deploying and Managing the Windows Deployment Services Update on Windows Server 2003 white paper.
