For best performance, avoid deploying WINS on heavily loaded servers, or on servers that perform other tasks that might reduce performance of the hard disk, memory, and processors. If you do host more than one service on a WINS server, consider how each service might impact the others. For example, hosting two name services (such as WINS and DNS) on the same server can result in slow performance for each service due to intensive hard disk access. Or a WINS server hosting a print service might be slow to register names if it is handling several large print jobs simultaneously. It might be appropriate to run multiple services on the same computer in a branch office because servers in branch offices are usually not under heavy use.
