A Windows 2000-based Windows Internet Naming Service (WINS) server does not back up the WINS database during server shutdown, even if the Back up database during server shutdown option is enabled.
As a workaround, stop WINS manually before shutting down the computer by using one of the following methods:
- At a command prompt, type net stop wins.
- Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, click Services, right-click Windows Internet Naming Service, and then click Stop.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
