I recently had someone in my IT staff manually delete a 1bh record in our WINS server.  Now we need to browse to that network and are not able to see that domain.  How can we get teh domain to show back up when we are network browsing?  What is the process for a server to enter a 1Bh record in WINS.  As most of you know a 1Bh record is a domain master browser record.  I would appreciate any assistance in this matter!

Usually the PDC registers this entry.  Run nbtstat -RR from the PDC to force a re-registration of WINS records.

What version of Windows server are you running?

Try the nbtstat -RR on the DC with the FSMO role PDC Master.

Thank you for your suggestions on how to clear this issue but I found the problem.  I found an error ID of 16650 in the event log which is related to the RID Master (KB839879).  I had to run DCPromo and demote the server, I then had to do a metadata clean up.  Once I cleaned up my AD, I promoted my server again and that cleared the issue.  I then had a 1BH record in my WINS database.  Sorry about the lack of background info but I was not fully given all the details on the problem so I did not realize that the server crashed and a new server was rebuilt with the same name.  Thanks again for all of your help on this issue.
