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.  

Regards.

Hi
The article below references windows 2000 but I think it may have relevance for you too,
Overview of the "Impersonate a Client After Authentication".....
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=821546

It would seem that some account needs this right - question is which one,

I've seen this come up a few times but have yet to see a stated fix for it hence this is an idea rather than a known fix.  It may be worth assigning the service account this right to see if it helps, then failing that you may need to give it to the everyone group - see if that helps, (but document what you do so you can undo it) then work backwards to isolate the necessary account.

Also could you post the exact error logs - it may help,

Deb :))
