How to remove wins settings from clients?

Hi Guys,

Can anyone tell me if I can remove Wins settings from my clients machines with a GPO or a script?

You can set this in a Batch Script file by running the following command attached...

Under local area connection, you'll want to list the name of the connection you are deleteing the wins servers from.

the end portion states all as it will delete all WINS entries.  You can also specify a single IP Address.

netsh int ip delete wins "local area connection" all

Open in new window

you need only to remove the wins server detaiils from the dhcp.

PSExec can do this for you, or a GPO using NetSH.

You might want to implement a GlobalNames Zone to replace WINS.  Here's how:
