WINS server you specified cannot be located (Windows 2003 Server) after Veritas Backup Exec Remote Agent install
Posted on 2004-08-19
I had a WINS server on a Windows 2003 machine working perfectly untill I installed Veritas Backup Exec Remote Agent 9.1 service on this computer to allow remote backups. This server is also a DNS server, Domain Controller and File Server. I have another server that has the exact same setup that is suffering from the same symptoms. The WINS server no longer functions and when selected in the WINS administration panel I receive the following error:
The WINS server you specified cannot be located. The WINS server might be down, there might be network problems, or the WINS service might not be installed.
The error was: Either a required impersonation level was not provided, or the provided impersonation level is invalid.
To retry the connection, either press F5, or on the Action menu, click Refresh.
For more information about troubleshooting a WINS server, see online Help.
I tried restarting the service and even reinstalling WINS to no avail. I also made sure that the Remote Registry Service was running and automatically starts.
I appreciate any help or comments anyone can give me on this matter.
