Name Resolution Order
Posted on 2003-02-24
The name resolution order on Win2K as per Microsoft' documentation says try DNS first and then WINS.
But when i run a capture tool i made the following observations -
- If a net command is used, ex: net use \\NetBIOSname, WINS is tried first and then DNS
- If a ping command is used, ex: ping hostname.domain.com, DNS is tried first and then WINS.
Can anyone tell me what exactly is the resolution order on Win2K?
