I have a Windows 2003 Standard Server with Excahnge 2003 and it acts as a firewall etc. I cannot get it to run wins. It quits with:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wins>net start wins
The Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) service is starting..
The Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) service could not be started.
A service specific error occurred: 3758096386.
More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3547.
In the event view I get event ID 4193 which hints:
WINS could not create the notification socket. Make sure the TCP/IP driver
is installed and running properly.
Clearly TCP/IP is installed and running, Exchange is quite happy.
There are some other events before the failure:
The WINS database of name-to-address mappings is empty. It could mean that a previous invocation of WINS created the database and then went down before any registration could be done.
The WINS database of owner-to-address mappings is empty. It could mean that
a previous invocation of WINS created the table and then went down before
its own entry could be added. The WINS server went down very fast (even before all its threads could become fully operational).
These are probably because I deleted the database files in desperation. The jetcheck utility reports no errors.
Anybody any ideas what could be causing it?
