Hi,

We have Exchange 2010 SP1.Network team used wireshark and inform us that there is a broadcast from all servers and it is related to NetBIOS(NBNS protocol).Actually we do not have WINS server. Question is if we disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP for all Exchange server , Is there any affect to Exchange functionality  or outlook client side ?
Is there any affect to SCCM, SQL 2008, File server 2003 ?

* DNS configured & working well.
* All Exchange & AD servers are Windows 2008 R2.

out of my experience, disabling netbios name only affects xp/2003 machines specially when opening shared folders by name. otherwise it should not affect  anything.

I have it disabled on all server ( 2008 R2). no issues.

You can disable NetBIOS. In case if you need Name Resolution install WINS server role on one of the server.
