Chapter 7. Designing a WINS Structure > Why This Chapter Matters

Why This Chapter Matters

Like Domain Name System (DNS), your Windows Internet Networking System (WINS) infrastructure is based on both the physical and logical topology of the company’s network. Before attempting to design a WINS infrastructure for a company, the company’s existing physical topology should be diagramed with detailed information on the location of servers, routers and switches, domain controllers, application servers, users, groups, organizational units, and so on. All of this was covered in Chapter 2, “Analyzing an Existing Infrastructure.”

This chapter is about designing a conceptual WINS infrastructure. The good news is that all of your hard work of gathering information to design the DNS infrastructure (the subject of Chapter 6) can be used here—no reinventing the wheel. You will begin your journey with an overview of WINS and how it works. From there, you will design a WINS infrastructure and then examine how WINS servers can replicate to other WINS servers, much like a DNS server replicates to other DNS servers.
