you can try nbtstat -RR to refresh the Netbios registration of the system you are on.
Then run nbtstat -c.
ipconfig /all should list the WINS servers if configured within DHCP scope options.

Arnold is right. once you see that the wins server is installed I would test it by pinging the machine name and if it replys back your in buisness.

There are many ways to learn to code these days. From coding bootcamps like Flatiron School to online courses to totally free beginner resources. The best way to learn to code depends on many factors, but the most important one is you. See what course is best for you.

Oops, sorry, the above deals with the windows system.  nbtlookup is a netbios lookup on the linux platform, but it is not clear how to locate the wins server using this tool.
You could try using tcpdump to see broadcast packets that could be part of the WINS exchange.

This seems to be a DC (CA-DC2-2K8) , could you check whether it has WINS installed?

it doesnt seem to be install

but for some reason im not sure with the answer that i get from sophos
because he told me that i have wins record

my actuel workstation naming system is that

CA-WS[number of the workstation]-[os]

so the control found this two record

CA-WS1-SVN ( actually good)
CA-WS1-VST (the pc before installing 7)

all the dns server has been clean

i dont know what to think about it

You can access one server or install admin pac on one of the workstation and remotely use the WINS mmc to connect to the servers and it will report whether they have or do not have WINS server roles.

I am unclear what the issue you are having or trying to fix outside the need to locate the WINS server/s.
