Windows 2000 WINS Problem

By Steve Penn ·
Hi,

I have just put a windows 2000 member server onto one of my sites and the WINS keeps giving me an error every half hour. It appears to be the with the 'pull' replication which happens every 30 mins.

The error I'm getting is ID 4202 "Event Type: Error
Event Source: Wins
Event Category: None
Event ID: 4204
Date: 03/03/2003
Time: 15:06:22
User: N/A
Computer: DATA03
Description:
WINS could not read from the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) socket.
Data:
0000: ef 14 00 00 46 27 00 00 ?...F'.."

The thing that's really baffling is that it seems to error when no replication partners are even set up. I have NetBIOS over TCP/IP enabled but have now become stuck.

Is this an issue with running a 2K WINS server on an NT Domain?

Any idea anyone?


Steve.

Sorry - forgot to say that the domain is windows NT and this is the only 2K box so far.

Microsoft articles Q246533 and Q179442 should help in the resolution of this.

I have a vague recollection of having answered this question somewhere else - if it was for you, sorry for the duplication. I think this issue may have to do with DNS, not WINS directly. Do you have a DNS server at your site? If so, check to see if you have it enable for WINS lookup. DNS uses a couple of UDP ports for WINS lookup, and this may be the cause of these messages. Hope this helps!
