You cannot install the Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 Advanced Client on client computers when your SMS 2003 site does not use Active Directory or when the schema for Active Directory has not been extended for SMS 2003.
On an Advanced Client computer, the %Windir%\System32\CCM\Logs\Clientlocation.log file may contain entries that are similar to the following:
This issue occurs when the Advanced Client cannot locate a server locator point (SLP). The Advanced Client may experience this issue when either of the following conditions is true:
To resolve this issue, manually add an SMS_SLP record and an SMS_MP record to the Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) database. To do this, use one of the following methods, depending on the operating system that you are running:
Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000To manually add the SMS_SLP and SMS_MP records to WINS in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and in Microsoft Windows 2000, follow these steps:
Windows NT 4.0
Use the WINS ManagerTo manually add WINS records in Windows NT 4.0 by using the WINS Manager, follow these steps:
Use the Winscl.exe toolTo manually add WINS records at a command prompt in Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, use the Winscl.exe tool. The Winscl.exe tool is included in the Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Resource Kit Support Tools. By default, the Winscls.exe file is installed to the Drive:\Program Files\Rksupport folder. To use Winscl.exe, follow these steps:
The SLP locates client access points (CAPs) for Legacy Clients and management points for Advanced Clients at client logon time. The SLP replaces the SMS 2.0 logon point and eliminates most traffic between SMS and domain controllers.
The Advanced Client communicates with SMS sites by using management points. Management points provide Advanced Clients with configuration details and advertisements. They also receive inventory, software metering, and client status information.
If the Advanced Client cannot locate a SLP or management point by querying the Active Directory, the Advanced Client will look for this information by querying a WINS server. SMS 2003 does not create SLP or management point records in WINS. These entries must be created manually for sites that do not have an extended Active Directory schema. After you add the SLP and management point records to WINS, the Advanced Client will be able to find a SLP, and then the Advanced Client can continue the installation of SMS client components.
