Hi, we have just discovered a small problem with our domain. It involves pinging the Netbios name of the domain. The domain is called Sale. If I ping just Sale it does not resolve but if I ping sale.com then it resolves. One of our major systems relies on resolving the Netbios name of the domain to work. As a work around we have put an entry in the host file, which gives the ip address of the PDC domain controller and the Netbios name of the domain and all seems fine now. Anybody have any ideas?
