WINS server using up all CPU cycle


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

2 of my production Windows 2003 Servers have been exhibiting strange behavior re: the WINS server.

It seems that several minutes after booting + logging in, WINS.exe will eat up all CPU cycle, ratcheting usage to a constant 100%, yielding only occasionally to realtime-priority processes.

Finally I have to resort to removing the WINS role.

Can anyone tell me what's going on?

FYI, the servers are located on different companies, one is SP1+hotfixes, the other is SP2.
