    Hi everybody again,

    Another couple of questions for you gurus ;)

    Which of the followìing is the correct (default) name resolution process in
    win 2000/2003/XP?

    a) DNS res first and Netbios res after (as I thought):

    DNS Cache -> HOSTS file -> DNS query -> Netbios cache -> WINS query ->
    Broadcast Netbios query - LMHOSTS

    or

    b) DNS res first and Netbios res after (as states in MOC 2276B for netbios
    H-node type ):
    Netbios cache -> NBNS (WINS) query -> Broadcast Netbios query - LMHOSTS ->
    DNS Cache -> HOSTS file -> DNS query

    Can the Netbios node type deal with the DNS name resolution process in any
    way?
    (In the PCs I installed I noticed that the node type was "Unknown" (0x0)
    instead of Broadcast as It should be set as the default!)

    Sadly, that doesn't make any sense to me!

    thanks for any hints!

    Hi MD,

    HOSTS and LMHOSTS files should be all the way at the bottom. Make sure DNS
    is first, NetBIOS is second.

    Hi Montreal MCT!

    That's what I thought too (apart from the fact that HOSTS file, as it
    contains DNS pre-setted name to ip resolution, should be the 2nd step in my
    opinion).

    The problem is that I tried to sniff the traffic and all I saw was NBT
    traffic...

    As I replied inthe other thread I will try to see if MS Virtual Server 2005
    Fixes this behaviour...
    I'll let you know ;)
    Thanks again

    MD
