Wins Records not replicating
Posted on 2010-09-02
I am in the process of migrating from 3 2003 WINS servers to two 2008 R2 WINS servers. WINS1, WINS2, and WINS3 are all 2003 servers that I am planning on decommissioning. WINS4 and WINS5 are the 2008 R2 replacements.
WINS1(2003) - push\pull replication with WINS 2(2003) and WINS4(2008).
WINS2(2003) - push\pull replication with WINS3(2003)
WINS3(2003) - push\pull replciation with WINS2(2008)
WINS4(2008 - push\pull replication with WINS1(2003) and WINS5(2008)
WINS5(2008) - push\pull replication with WINS4(2008)
I haven't seen any errors in the event logs relating to WINS. After installing the 2008 WINS servers and configuring the replication I tried to verify the records had were the same accross all 5 WINS servers before I start changing clients. I discovered that WINS4 didn't hall all the records replicated from WINS1 but it did have all the records from WINS2 and WINS3. I have tried to force the replication and I get absolutely no messages in the event log. Any suggestions? I can't figure out why it only replicates a handful of the records owned by WINS 1 to WINS4.
