How to Clear the WINS database

1. Click Start, point to Programs or All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click WINS.

2. Expand the server object, right-click Active Registrations, and then click Delete Owner.

3. In the Delete Owner dialog box, select the IP address of the server.

4. If the WINS server does not have any replication partners, click Delete from this server only, and then click OK. If the WINS server has one or more replication partners, click Replicate deletion to other servers (tombstone), and then click OK.

The WINS server will rebuild the database automatically as computers on the network register their NetBIOS names. You can force Windows-based computers on the network to register their NetBIOS names immediately by running the nbtstat -RR command.
