Recreating WINS database

By jcain ·
I need to recreate my WINS database. Plan to follow steps in TechNet, but wondered if anyone has ever run into some "snags" that I may want to be aware of. WIN server running on WinNT4.0 SP6a on the BDC, plan to stop WINS service, move contents ofwins folder in system32, restart WIN, restart PDC, restart all other servers.

Recreating WINS database

I end up doing this occasionally and haven't found any "gotchas" along the way.

The only thing I do differently is create a separate directory for the backup copy of the WINS folder so it doesn't become part of the detritus that accumulates over time in the SYSTEM32 directory.
