4.2 Site Search Messages

The following sections describe the message exchange with a Group Policy server in which a Group Policy client requests and receives the site where a computer account is located.

In this example, the process is initiated with a Site Search message sent to the Group Policy server. The server replies with the configurationNamingContext. This configurationNamingContext is used in a second Site Search message. The process ends with receipt of the scope of management for the site to which the computer account belongs.
