MBSA cannot scan the whole domain
Posted on 2006-07-12
I am running MBSA 2 on windows server 2003. I am attempting to scan the entire domain, but when I do the scan it reports an error message:
"FTI\AI-FALLBRK-03 (192.168.0.80) Could not resolve the computer name: AI-FALLBRK-03. Please specify computer name, domain\computer, or an IP address."
As you can see it resolved the ip address, which is correct, but then tells me it can't find it. If I scan the computer using only the ip address it works just fine. Running the scan on the domain multiple times will result in a apparently random set of computers with this error. Sometimes I will succesfully scan most of the domain, but most of the time ~80% of the clients error out. I've done the following to attempt to resolve the problem:
1) Firewall is disabled on server and client
2) Netbios is enabled on both and client is viewable from network neighboorhood on server.
