Scan Error 201: "System not found" When Attempting To Scan A Workgroup Windows 10/Server 2016

Version 8



    When attempting to scan a Windows 10 version 1607 (aka the Windows 10 Anniversary Update) system or a Windows Sever 2016 Desktop Experience that is part of a Workgroup from a Domain system you receive the error "201: System not found" despite being able to resolve and connect to the machine through other means such as:


    • DNS resolution: nslookup machinename resolves correct IP
    • Admin share access: net use \\machinename\IPC$ succeeds

    When checked, the ST.Protect.managed log, located at C:\ProgramData\LANDESK\Shavlik Protect\Logs, will have an error similar to the following:

    2017-01-27T19:57:55.5249309Z 0020 W ResolvableMachineWorkflow.cs:273| The system cannot find the file specified

    This problem has been resolved with the release of Ivanti Patch for Windows Servers 9.3.  Until you can upgrade, there are a couple of options to work around it:

    1. Adding the machine to your domain will allow it to be scanned normally
    2. Installing an agent on the machine will bypass the problematic call
