SetWINSServer method of the Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration class

The SetWINSServer WMI class method sets the primary and secondary Windows Internet Naming Service (WINS) servers on this TCP/IP-bound network adapter. This method is applied independently of the network adapter.

This topic uses Managed Object Format (MOF) syntax. For more information about using this method, see Calling a Method.

Examples

The Assign an IP Address Retrieved from a Database VBScript code sample looks up a computer in a database and assigns that computer the specified IP address.

The following VBScript code sample sets the primary and secondary WINS server for a TCP/IP-bound network adapter.

strComputer = "." 
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _ 
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2") 
 
Set colNetCards = objWMIService.ExecQuery _ 
    ("Select * From Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration Where IPEnabled = True") 
 
For Each objNetCard in colNetCards 
    strPrimaryServer = "192.168.1.100"
