    I have 8 sites with in each site one DC with DNS,WINS and DHCP services.
    I want to use "Use WINS forward lookup" in the DNS configuration but when i
    put IP address in "Use WINS forward lookup", she is replicated on the other
    So, all DCs uses the same WINS.

    In my case, it's not good, i want each DCs use a specified WINS server.
    In other word, i want DC use WINS server who is in the same site.

    Thanks for your help

  2. I'm not sure this is possible. If you have multiple sites running WINS, the
    WINS servers ought to be replicated via push/pull, so there should be no
    problem using the same one for lookups, right?

    Yes, my Wins Server are replicated via push/pull but when we use "Use WINS
    forward lookup", it's always the same Wins Server who is use and its not good
    for the network trafic !!!!

  4. Yeah, I guess I can see that. I just don't see any way around it. Why do you
    need to use WINS lookup anyway? Legacy machines?
