    After installation of WINS, I got a error in my log.

    Registration of the DNS record '_ldap._tcp.Default-First-
    Site-Name._sites.gc._msdcs.risoda.com. 600 IN SRV 0 100
    3268 ad.risoda.com.' failed with the following error:

    I've never heard of WINS causing this error, you can certainly get the error
    if you have your ISP's DNS in TCP/IP properties.

    Yep, I agree. Need to remove the ISP's DNS addresses (or the router if in
    there) from IP properties from the DCs and clients and recommended to use a
    forwarder.
