Backup WINS database is greyed out

By Joshua1 ·
I'm running WINS on W2k SP2. I'm trying to manually backup the database to \winnt\system32\wins\backup, and then schedule to backup. I've right-clicked the server, chosen Properties, selected the backup location, and selected 'backup on server shutdown'. Now I need to manually backup the database. I right-click the server, but I can't select the 'backup' option from the rt. click shortcut menu.

Why is the option to 'Backup Database' greyed out?

Hi Josuha1,

Are you logged on locally to the Wins server? If you are logged on through a remote console that option will be grayed out.

I'm sorry what I ment was, you can't use the wins mmc from a management station that option will be grayed out. You can login to the Wins server using termsvcs and backup option will be avaiable.
