New domain and computer, do I need WINS?
Posted on 2011-03-14
I created a new domain with 1 DC and 1 computer so far, I just added the WIn XP computer to the domain and it was added just fine. I then rebooted. but when I go into the "network" on the server I don't see the computer. I'm guessing that by adding the WINS Server feature that I'll have NETBIOS but isn't NETBIOS suppose to be obsolete? I've been meaning to ask this question for a long time now and keep for getting to ask it but then creating this new domain brought it back to my attention.
And if WINS and NETBIOS are old school, what is the correct way and what should I be turning on.
Thanks in advance.
