I current have a small network ( less than 100 clients/servers) that is controlled by a single NT 4.0 SP6 DC. I am in the process of creating a BDC, and have WINS installed with server A and server B as push/pull partners to each other. When I click on (local) for the DB of server B (new BDC) I do not see any mappings other than itself. The other server (current DC) shows all of its mappings. Isn't the entire db supposed to replicate when I click the replicate now button in the WINS manager? This may seem like a dumb question, but I am clueless as to how NT operates, and Microsoft had to refund me my support call money because they were unable to assist me also.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Make sure nothing is blocking TCP port 42.

Try breaking the replication then stopping the WINS service on your PDC. Move the files from the Windows\system32\wins folder to a temp location. Restart the WINS service and the DB files will be recreated, then restart both your servers and set up the replication

You could try manually copying the files from the wins folder on the PDC to the same folder on the BDC and then force a replication.

There’s something on this page about using system monitor to report on WINS replication, it might help troubleshoot what is going on:
