How to Manually Add Configuration Manager Site Information to WINS

Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

If you do not extend the Active Directory schema for Configuration Manager, or you do not enable publishing site data to Active Directory Domain Services, your site's clients will not be able to query Active Directory Domain Services for the services these servers provide. The default management point computer will register automatically in Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) if it is available, but you must manually register the server locator point and any management points operating in a Network Load Balancing (NLB) cluster in WINS.

noteNote
Management points are automatically registered in WINS with the entry MP_sitecode and 1A as the ending character. One server locator point can be registered as SMS_SLP with 1A as the ending character. Registering more than one server locator point requires extending the Active Directory schema.

Adding Server Locator Point Information to WINS

To manually add the server locator point entry to WINS

  1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd in the Run Dialog Box and then click OK.

  2. At the command prompt, type netsh, and then press Enter.

  3. Type wins, and then press Enter.

  4. Type server, and then press Enter. To manage a remote WINS server, type server <\\servername orXXX.XXX.XXX.XXX>.

  5. Type the appropriate command, as in the following example:

add name Name=SMS_SLP endchar=1A  rectype=0 ip={ <server locator point IP address> }

To verify that the server locator point entry was added correctly to WINS

  1. Click Start, click Run, enter cmd in the Run dialog box and then click OK.

  2. At the command prompt, type netsh, and then press Enter.

  3. Type wins, and then press Enter.

  4. Type server, and then press Enter. To manage a remote WINS server, type server <\\servername or XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX>.

  5. Type the appropriate command, as in the following example:

show name Name=SMS_SLP endchar=1A

Adding Management Point Network Load Balancing (NLB) Cluster Information to WINS

Management points are automatically registered in WINS. However, if you are using a Network Load Balancing cluster, you must manually add the WINS entry.

  2. At the command prompt, type netsh, and then press Enter.

  5. Type the appropriate command, as in the following example:

add name name=NLB_<site code > endchar=1A  rectype=0 ip={ <NLB virtual IP Address> }

To verify that the Network Load Balancing cluster entry was added correctly to WINS
