Computer Browser Service & WINS
Posted on 2009-05-19
I have few questions regarding WINS and NETBIOS.
We have 4DC with WINS installed and 100 clients (2000, XP, Vista) that have WINS server IP delivered throug DHCP. They also have enabled NETBios on their NICs. All PCs have 'computer browser' service started
My question - Can I disable master browser election (our software can behave when MB is changed)??
OK, I read in MS articles that MB is forced to be one of DCs automaticaly. Sometimes MB is NOT a DC in our case. Would disabling computer browser service on PCs help??
I would really like to have 'static' MS and static __mbrowse__ records in WINS. Is that possilble??
Thanks in advance (sorry for the points, I have ony 160 available...)
