I have attached an image of my error.

The old WINS server, 10.1.32.61, was remove quite a while ago but it still owns a lot of registrations but they have passed the expiration date.  How do I go about removing these registrations from my WINS server.  Can I simply delete them and our current WINS server will pick them up?

Thank you,
Scott

If the server is no longer serving the purpose of WINS then sure you can delete the entries, you can even remove WINS service altogether.

I am just curious, why are you using WINS?

I would like to remove it but I believe they needed WINS for an older accounting application that we use rarely.
