    Shot in the dark but your CURRICSVR3 does not run WINS, if your domain is looking for a netbios name that may be the issue...

    Ha! You might be on to something there! When looking at the WINS management bit it's status is set to responding and Curricsvr3 is the one listed! There's nothing in the Active Registration or Replication partner folders though.

    it does not list automatically you have to filter the results...

    Right Click Active Registations and select Display records, then click Find Now

    If your CURRIC1 doesn't have WINS this may be the base of your issue.

    I would suggest installing WINS on CURRICSVR1 and setting both 3 and 1 to be a replication partners.

    This should replicate the entries across to the new server.

    Once this is up and replicating properly you will more than likely need to alter your DHCP settings to use the new WINS address (namely CURRICSVR1) and also alter any static Addresses that you may have.

    Again once you are confident that all the machines have moved (give it a few days) you can then turn off WINS on the old server.

    HTH

    It's not a job that can be done in one evening although the initial installs take only a few minutes

    Agreed Nephilim

    I'm close enough (to Brum anyways) to maybe pop over one evening if I get let out early enough.
