Thanks Cat!!! You put my heart at ease a bit. Just to\nclarify, if all of the clients are 2000 or XP Pro, we can\nshut down the WINS service completly, correct? As long as\nall ofour workstations have the correct DNS server in the\nIP setup (which we will begin to run thru DHCP). We will\nalso have 3-4 NT 4.0 servers on the network until we\ncomplete the upgrade. WINS is not necessary for the old\nservers, correct? They can all be referred back to the new\n2K3 box for DNS usage, correct? Even the BDC. Thanks\nagain!!
