WINS setup between NT and 2003
Posted on 2004-09-03
I am looking for an ideal WINS setup across two domains on the same subnet. The idea is to migrate from an nt4 environment to windows 2003 on the same network subnet. Both environments are up and running, I have 2 WINS servers on the Nt 4 domain and 2 WINS servers on 2003. The idea is to migrate and decommision the NT4 environment.
I've setup a trust relationship between the two domains but I am having some problems doing cross-logins. I am pretty sure it's the NT4 domain that's having name resolution issues with WINS as I get an error message when I added the trust in USRMGR. The two nt WINS servers are configured to replicate with each other and the 2 WINS servers on 2003 are replicating with each other in a push/pull to push/pull configuration. Obviously the WINS on 2003 only knows about the WINS i've static'd into the clients and servers. If someone could give me a diagram like on how to setup my push/pull replication so that the 2003 WINS servers have a complete working set of names, remember the NT WINS servers will be going away eventually.
2003WINS1 push-->2003WINS2 pull then push---->NT4WINS1 pull then push ----->NT4WINS2 pull
