Netbios Name Resolution Question on Server 2008
Posted on 2010-08-12
I am sure this is a basic question...I got use to WINS now with server 2008 no more.
When I see NBNS traffic (wireshark) from Domain Machines are they trying to contact a WINS server?
When that fails, do they change to DNS name resolution? The node type on these machines is Broadcast.
In DHCP no node type is defined. Is it best to leave it that way in a Server 2008 domain? This is the question I am getting to. (I have been thinking about changing it to Hybrid because I see so many machines with Broadcast node types.)
