WINS or No WINS
Posted on 2007-12-03
I was just talking with someone who was explaining to me that WINS is required in a network, with XP and Vista workstations within a Windows 2003 domain, running Integrated Active Directory Microsoft DNS.
If you have a MS DNS solution, and the DHCP server is updating new leases, using DNS for name resolution, why is WINS still required?
I have a network in one office/client that doesn't use any instances of WINS whatsoever, so what again, I'm wondering why WINS is required, if what was said it accurate.
