To add a replication partner

  1. Open WINS.

  2. In the console tree, click Replication Partners.


    • WINS/applicable WINS server/Replication Partners

  3. On the Action menu, click New Replication Partner.

  4. In New Replication Partner, type the name or IP address of the WINS server to add as a replication partner.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.

  • To open WINS, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click WINS.

  • By default, replication partners are configured as push/pull type partners. Once you have added a partner, however, you can change it to be a Push only or Pull only type partner. For more information, see Related Topics.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
