Installed new 2008 R2 DC's and demoted 2003 DC's. We were running WINS, but decided to not use ti anymore as I have been told we don't need it anymore. Problem I am now facing is client software looking for license server. It requires you to find the server, but can only find computers ont he same subnet without WINS. Is there any way to see computers accross subnets through "My Network Places" or whatever these client software packages use?
