Adding WINS server using a script

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

Anyway why are you still using wins? - it is depreciated from Windows XP onwards

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
