WINS & DNS Confilict

By rbranco ·
Hi all, another day in the office...

I have three offices all connection over VPN Links.
Each office uses ranges 10.1.0.1/254, 10.2.0.1/254, 10.3.0.1/254.
They each have DHCP, DNS & WINS.
The DNS is all set up, using secondary zones to replicate the records between site servers with resolution to WINS.

The problem i have is when i try to replicate the WINS using push & pull all the records from the other server get transfered but the DNS starts resolving all the other offices computersas if they were in the office where you did the request from.

I hope this is easy, any problems ask. The description is a bit confused.

Ah, all servers are NT4.

I have thought about using the NETBIOS Scope to limit the DNS resolving recordsfrom other sites incorectly. Is this the correct way?

DNS Manager has an option you can check to omit WINS records from the zone transfer. That should fix it.

I know that option, unfortunatly i need / would like the WINS Zone Transfer because i use DHCP and the records need to be assigned automaticly. This i understand is fixed in W2KS.

I understand that you wish to use both WINS and DNS but why can't you disable it long enough to do your WINS push/pull and then reenable it? The problem you describe indicates that it's during the push/pull that DNS messes you up. Did I miss something?

Well because when you re-enable the Zone Transfer it will all go wrong again. The transfers have to happen all the time and correctly. It only gets the records incorect when you quiery them from the DNS server, after the WINS transfer. There must besomething incorect on the WINS's side.
