How Test WINS Servers?
Posted on 2012-08-14
In our server environment we are replacing the DNS servers and the WINS servers with new servers on a different subnet.
We have a few Win2000 servers - most are Win2003 and we're rolling out Win2008 for all new servers.
Some of my older servers have WINS settings in their static IP config, so these need to be changed along with the DNS server addresses.
Question - on a server with both DNS and WINS specified, how do I test for proper WINS resolution? Would NetBIOS commands like Net Use work, or would they be resolved by DNS resolution instead?
Thanks for your help!
