  • Can not ping domain controller with netbios name

    System info : Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 (Build 3790)

    Hello, im am experiencing some strange problems with my domain controller.

    From my computer i cannot ping it with its netbios name , but i can ping it if i use fqdn. From my computer i can ping other servers on my domain with theirs netbios name, but not my domain controller.

    I have enabled netbios over tcp/ip on the network connection on the dc.

    when i run netdiag it fails on:

    NetBT transports test. . . . . . . : Failed
    List of NetBt transports currently configured:
    [FATAL] No NetBt transports are configured.

    Is that the reason that i cant ping my domain controller (with netbios name)?

    Does anyone have som suggestions ? Please request more information, and i will provide.

    Yours sincerly

    Did you enabled the DHCP client service on both server and workstations?
    Did you enabled the TCP/IP NetBios helper service on both server and workstations?
    Have you enabled client for Microsoft Windows Networks on both server and workstations?

      Domain controller have static ip adresses, workstation has dhcp. Workstations is not an member of the domain tho (work through terminal servers)

      Client for Microsoft Network is not enabled on the domain controller, but is enabled on the workstation. Dont know how and why it has been disabled, i guess it should be enabled on domain controllers too.. ? I see all my other servers has it ..

      Both workstation and server has tcp / ip netbios helper enabled....

        Although the server has a static address you still need to enable the DHCP service in the services pane.
        Also Client for Microsoft Network should always be enabled unless it's a nic connected to the internet.

          Enabling the "client for microsoft networks" solved the problem. You dont konw how many days i've scratched my head for a solution to this mystic problem , a bit embarrasing that it was so easy

          Thank you very much for the solution.
