Network problem : Win2K server conflicting with novel network

  1. Please Help Simple Question

    I recently added a windows 2000 server onto a novel network and it slowed traffic on network because some how Wins client.exe was started and broadcasting everywhere and would bring down the whole network. How would a WinsClient.exe be started if there is no IP address enabled for a wins server ?

    It must have started on its own is that possible?

    The OS was ghosted from an image that does not have this enabled .

    Is there any way to start the process with out entering an ip address for the Wins server?
    Besides starting the .exe within services?

    Please help!!!!!

    I might look guilty but I didnt do it

    Well you might get a little more help if you make your thread topic a little more on key. With this nobody knows what it is about and chances are lost of people will skip it over since they don't know what you are asking about.

    I think I do know what its about.

    Go into the network settings on your windows server, find the section on provider order and move novell up above windows network. Do you use IPX/SPX or TCP/IP with Novell?
