When scavenging or running a consistency check against WINS replication partners, a WINS server may assign local version IDs to records of the replicated database.
This may result in one of the following scenarios if you have the UseRplPnrs registry key enabled:
During a scavenge or consistency check, there is a problem where a replica record was flagged indicating that the WINS server should update a record. This results in a version ID increase. Record ownership is not verified and the version ID is incorrectly assigned.
Additionally, as a result of the check done on the records, another problem is addressed with group names that are in the released or tombstone state. There is a problem where group names in the released or tombstone state can cause symptoms similar to the symptoms stated above after a scavenge or consistency check was run against the WINS database.
There is now a check in place to ensure that only owned records are manipulated.
