I've got some general slight network errors on a network. As part of testing I've discovered that I can't ping the netbios name of the site.
Ping request could not find host mydomain. Please check the name and try again.
But if I ping the FQDN there is no problem.
Any idea why that would be?
I've checked DNS and that seems to be fine. We are not using WINS - but internet searching seems to indicate that is only needed when trying to ping a NETBIOS name across different subnets - we are not doing that.
BTW, pinging the NETBIOS names of individual machines - including the DCs works fine.
