I need to add a couple of new WINS servers several hundred windows workstations running Windows 7. I need to find a way to add them with a script that I can run through an Active Directory GPO. Does anyone have a script that I can do this with or is there a way in a GPO to add the additional WINS servers?

Easiest would be to change your DHCP scope option number 44 and point it to wins server IP

I haven't tried before, however i can give you the idea. Create a batch file using netsh command and load it during startup via GPO.

Netsh help is here
