Authors Note
Please add the following paragraph immediately after the bullet points
on page 288:

By default you can't be sure if a client is making NBT lookup requests
to a WINS server or if it's broadcasting those requests to the network.
One way to make sure that the client is sending requests to the WINS
server and not making any broadcasts is to change the node type. RFC
1001/1002 defines four node types:
B-node is used by default on clients that aren't configured to query a
WINS server. B-node broadcasts all NBT requests.
H-node is used by default on clients that are configured to use a WINS
server for NBT resolution. H-node clients first query the WINS server,
then broadcast the request if the server is not available or if the name
is not registered in the WINS database.
M-node is the reverse of H-node. M-node clients first send out a
broadcast, and if the name is not resolved, they send the request to the
WINS server.
P-node clients only send name resolution requests to a WINS server and
never make broadcasts.
You can change the node type in the registry, which can be helpful for
troubleshooting or for special name resolution needs. Open the registry
editor by selecting Start > Run and entering regedt32.exe. Add the
following key:
Value Type: REG_DWORD - Number
Value: 1, 2, 4, or 8 (1 = b-node, 2 = p-node, 4 = m-node, 8 = h-node)

Question 4.
Please change the question after the third sentence to read:

"... WINS server. One of the WINS servers recently failed, and you don't
anticipate getting it back online for at least a week due to internal
management difficulties. You want all the machines on the affected
subnet to be able to access every other machine by name. How should you
accomplish this? Choose all that apply."

And change the options to:

A. Configure the remaining WINS servers as push/pull replication
B. Configure push replication on one of the WINS servers.
C. Configure pull replication on one of the WINS servers.
D. Configure the affected clients to retrieve WINS information from one
of the WINS servers that isn't on the same network.

Question # 6 is the same as Question # 2 on page 291

Page 299

Answers to question 4.
Answer: A, D
You should configure the remaining WINS servers as push/pull replication
partners so that at least those two servers have as much WINS database
information as possible. Then you should configure the WINS clients on
the affected subnet to use one of the working WINS servers for name
resolution. The WINS servers won't be able to resolve names on the
affected subnet, but that's OK because the clients will revert to NBT
broadcasts for any names that the servers can't resolve.
