  • Take ownership of WINS records

    This maybe in the wrong section. Apologize for the same.

    We have a bunch of old WINS servers that are no longer around. I found this webpage from MS that possibly allows me to make a change in the registry to take ownership of all the records.

    anyone use this in win2k or know of a better way to take ownership of WINS records in win2k?

      you can do it through the WINS UI (MMC).
      right click on the Records folder -> "Delete Owner" , it would ask you what you want to do with the original Owner records, you could pick to take ownership.
