My IT manager asked if SQL 2005 uses WIN as SQL 2000. Can someone help me answer this please? Thanks
what is WIN?? —————————————-
are you asking for WINS – Windows Internet Naming System
quote:WINS consists of two main components, the WINS server and WINS clients. The WINS server handles name registration requests from WINS clients, register their names and IP addresses, and responds to NetBIOS name queries submitted by clients, returning the IP address of a queried name if it is listed in the server database.

for more refer Windows Help to get complete idea about it. HTH
