SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:

  • You configure native site mode on a Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) site server.
  • You reinstall the operating system of a System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 client by using an operating system deployment (OSD) task sequence.
  • You specify a different computer name in the OSD task sequence. This new computer name is registered by another client.

In this scenario, the new System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 client of the reinstalled operating system cannot register to its management point.
For example, consider the following scenario:

  • You configure native mode as the site mode on a System Center Configuration Manager 2007 site server.
  • You install the System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 client on two computers that are named "PC1" and "PC2."
  • You reinstall the "PC2" client by using an OSD task sequence.
  • You specify the name "PC1" for the client in the operating system deployment task sequence.

In this scenario, the "PC2" client cannot register itself to its management point.
