Imagine my surprise...

By wtp763 ·
On the back cover of the July 2000 volume 2 number 6 issue of the Windows NT Administrator Report there is an article which just about describes my exact problem.
(recap)
I have a closed NT domain 1PDC 2BDC's about 75 NT workstations. My boss is in an office up north with a similar setup. We both use DHCP and are running WINS. One day he comes down and says that he is going to setup a trust. He sets up a one-way trust and leaves a server connected to our domain which has their SAMS database on it. Shortly after this, we started randomly receiving the error msg., "No domain controller could be located for the domain".

According to the article Mr. Posey states that he just let the WINS servers exchange information. My question is how do you do this?

IN WINS Manager setup a push/pull relationship between the 2 WINS servers.

I would recommend a Push/Pull as well, but in additon to that, in DHCP make sure the clients get both WINS servers in their Primary and Secondary fields. That way they will register and query both servers. BTW, WINS is a messy situation, when adding/removing static entries, make sure you do both on each server. Also add a static WINS entry of Domain, add the name of the domain and the DC's IP addresses. Do both domains on each WINS server.
