  • Core Server Computer Browsing

    Any workstations that authenticate on a domain controller that has Core Server, do not show up when browing the network. Is this a known issue or did we do something wrong? We have 3 dc's and two are 2008 gui and one is core. Core has dhcp, dns, and wins running.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Why do you care?
    Does it has some really good reason why you find this an issue?

      Well.......yeah it's an issue. We have several locations in different states that are on one domain, and it's causing visibility problems not only when network browsing but also within dameware. And if it can be fixed, we'd like to fix it.

        Dameware can simply connect based on ipadress or DNS name.
        Netbios is a security issue and I really really recommend to keep it as it is.
        Dameware just is doing a netbios lookup to see who is in the neighborhood.

        Anyway enabling NetBios on core:
        List interfaces:
        wmic nicconfig get caption,index,TcpipNetbiosOptions

        "index number" use in next command:
        wmic nicconfig where index=1 call SetTcpipNetbios 1
        SetTcpopNetbios option:

        0 - Use NetBIOS setting from the DHCP server
        1 - Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP
        2 - Disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP
        (source: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/...-0952a1e3cabc/)

        Enable network discovery vista:

        And how to disable netbios for Vista via DHCP (reverse this process )

          Since you say that you have WINS running I would begin by closely inspecting your WINS settings, especially on the Core DC and all workstations that are part of that segment.

            Thanks both of you for your replies. The WINS settings are correct on the Core DC's. We have one in Texas, one in Alabama, and one in Massachusetts and all three are disallowing authenticated computers/servers to show up on the network. Everything has been done correctly apparently, and another tech has opened a case with Microsoft. Will post what I find out.
