Has anyone enabled the WINS server service on Windows Home server 2011? if so how do you set it up?

 

One question why on earth would you want to enable it in the first place?

Its only real usage these days are for legacy applications & systems that require it for netbios name resolution.

 

Its main usage was on nt4/2000 and to a extent on 2003.

 

If you really need it just update the lmhost records on your clients over installing the wins service.

I really dislike wins I remember having to stay back several hours in work before due to corruption in the wins database causing chaos on our old nt4 domain grrr.
