Found that 90% of locations on Putwall 3 had orders/containers still tied to locations. Confirmed with Site that these locations where currently had no physical content tied to them.
Worked with the site on restarting Putwall services during a break to further troubleshoot the issue.

Updated the Location ID on the Container records tied to the Putbox 3 Putwall location to NULL to clear the locations in question.
The site then waved additional work to confirm that the locations were now working properly.
Verified that after each put/pick that the location was now clearing out as expected.
The cause for no Putbox 3 location not being able to have orders associated was that previous containers had not been cleared from the locations once pick completed.
Cleared old/complete order information associated with these locations and confirmed that new orders were able to be assigned. Also confirmed that orders that were then pick completed were cleared from the locations as expected to prevent another reoccurrence.
Next Steps and Preventive Actions:
Further review logs and import logic with Development Team to pinpoint occurrence. Review Tote Pack Complete (TCP) History to confirm if failed import resulted in the Putbox 3 locations not being cleared.
Our commitment to you:
Bastian Solutions understands the impact of the disruption that occurred and affected operations for your organization. It is our primary objective in providing our clients with superb customer service, and we assure you we're taking the required preventative measures to prevent reoccurrence.
