We have a windows XP pro SP2 LAN with wired 802.1x authhentication enabled. When we install SP3 that client breaks wired 802.1x authentication. So there is a solution by Microsoft, it works on single PC fine but we want a solution for whole network to deploy. Moreover, we want machine only wired 802.1x authentication not user because our machines are shared by different users.

I don’t know enough to help you with the SMS part of this but what you may be looking for is PKI (public key infrastructure) or certificates to authenticate the machines. Check out the following articles from Microsoft for more details.
