Hey guys,

Does anyone know a script that I can use, that I can apply via GPO, and have it so that the computers it applies to automatically set the Primary and Secondary Wins servers? I don't know anything about VBScripting so I'm at a loss, just trying to make things a bit easier.

Thanks!

DHCP scope options would be a much better place for this.

edit: failing that, a netsh command from dos would be my next choice.. (netsh interface ip set wins <ipadd>)

if you really must use vbscript.. give me a minute to work/test something

Actually this post can be deleted! :) Silly me forgot I posted this quite awhile back, and actually got a respone from KCNYChief with the appropriate script. I created a GPO for this and issued it via Computer Setup, and everything seems to be working. Can't use DHCP because this client is Statically Assigned IP addresses.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
