WINS replication problem

Hi ,
I have 2 wins servers  srvA & srvB, from SrvB it doesnt show replication errors and suceeds with every replication but on srvA it does show errors when replcaiting.(COMM Fails)

Error is : ( on evt log of prb srvr)ID 4102
The connection was aborted by the remote WINS. Remote WINS may not be configured to replicate with the server.

I have set these up to replicate a number of times ( deleted the Repl Partner and re-added) and still same problem .

thanks in advance

Steve

Hi..

NT 4 / w2k ?????

From what you have already said you are familiar with setting up replication between wins servers. In this case double check that they are both set to replicate properly - ie, push/pull between each other. Most likely your WINS server is set to Push and/or Pull to another WINS server that is not configured to Push/Pull back.

If your servers are w2k servers then there is a problem with a TCP window on the receiving side that stops receiving data. This causes the sender to fill up the TCP send window and causes error 4102 to be sent to the logs..

Experienced it on a customers site last May!! In true style Microsoft recommend the latest service pack for both servers.

good luck.

Are you using RRAS to connect the 2 servers?

Also - In Windows 2000 ensure that the 'Replicate only with partners' check box on the General tab of the replication partner is selected.

one is on 192.168.1.X subnet
other is on 192.168.10.x subnet..

Using RRAS on ISA server to connect servers.

Servers are in two different offices.

'Replicate only with partners' is selected.

thanks

Try using the client-side RRAS IP addresses for WINS replication instead of the wins server ip addresses.
RRAS servers will use addresses from their rras pools when they connect to communicate with each other.

eg:
Server1
RAS address pool: 200.0.1.0 subnet mask 255.255.255.0

Server2
RAS address pool: 200.0.2.0 subnet mask 255.255.255.0

Each server will use the first address in its RAS pool as its server- side RAS IP address. When S1 & S2 connect, S1 will receive 200.0.2.2 as its client-side IP address and Server2 will receive 200.0.1.2 as its client-side IP address.

If does not work then you could also temporarily set up wins on the ISA box and test it from the ISA box.


Bit of an effort I know, but worth trying...

is there anything in the event logs? WINS generally created pretty good messages to explain whats happening. also go into server properties from WINS manager, and look through there - it will indicate if replication has ever occured, and when.

remember to enable wins to log detialed events if your doing that!

can you browse the servers?
