Ive got two domains in the same building, currently there are 25 people in total but soon there will be anything up to 40.

At the moment i have two wins servers, one for each domain.
Could i just have one? and whats the limit one wins server can handle?

No problem, one WINS server should easily cope with 40 users! The 'rule of thumb' from MS suggests a WINS server per 10,000 users.

If both the domains are using DHCP, then the configuration is pretty simple: just change the WINS option to point to the new WINS server.
