I am unable to resolve windows NetBIOS names from inside CentOS. I've tried the following:
Adding "wins" entry to "hosts:" in nsswitch.conf ("files wins dns")
Changing the order of "files", "wins", and "dns" in nsswitch.conf
Restarting networking "service network restart"
Adding "search WORKGROUP" to resolv.conf (replacing WORKGROUP with my particular workgroup)
Restarting the machine
I'm kinda out of options, and I'm not sure where to go from here. From what I've read, adding wins to nsswitch.conf should solve it, but that doesn't work for me.
I'm able to ping the computers via IP address, and I can resolve the NetBIOS names on Windows machines. I don't think it's a firewall issues, because when I stop iptables, the issue persists. It could maybe be an SELinux issue, but I don't really know where to start troubleshooting that.
Help me, EE, you're my only hope!
