WINS In Active Directory

By ask_anurag ·

I want to know is WINS is necessary in Active Directory as I know that DNS is very important in Active Directory.

If WINS is there then what is the use of it as DNS will resolve all queries.

Thanks and Regards,

Unless you have older clients, I believe NT4 and Windows 95/98. Those machines need to be able to find domain related entries in WINS as they won't do it using DNS
